every once in a while i like giving a shout out to my fantastic sponsors and highlight the cool stuff they sell. seriously, if it weren’t for them this blog would probably be no more. so please support them, not just because they are rad – but because you’ll be supporting the little guy (and this little blog). so click those banners on the right & go to town.
July things! you can just click on the sweet little icons to be taken to the items.
i really feel like my bag obsession is getting out of hand. sometimes i think i might to have to buy duplicate wallets and cosmetics and keys just so i can keep a set in each of my bags (don’t you hate transferring your stuff every time? yes i know that is the ultimate in laziness). SUL is a bag company from Portugal who make some seriously nice hand-crafted leather pieces. really into this one and this one. dig the embossing too.
Toino Abel was started by Nuno Henriques with the aim to preserve the tradition of Portuguese reed basket weaving. Nuno’s great-grandfather José began his basket-weaving business in the small Portuguese village of Castanheira, and today the business is still run by Nuno’s grand-aunt and employs 6 weavers who make the baskets by hand just as they have always been made.

i spent a fair amount of time clicking around the AYR website because (a) they have beautiful clothes and (b) the website is soooooo nice to look at & use. i particularly love the little wheel you can click on to select different colours of the same product (see this rad dress as an example). i actually hadn’t heard of AYR before, but they focus on a few products done well (think Everlane) – great denim (loads of choices!), chambray, cashmere, tees, simple dresses and the like.
Hannah Ferrara is one of my favourite people to follow online, not only because of her beautiful jewellery line Another Feather, she’s also a fine, fine Instagrammer. she has just launched the new collection for her line, Pearl. she styled the beautiful lookbook herself and it features another stylish woman modelling the pieces – Madelynn Hackwith Furlong (who has a great blog and rad apartment that i posted about before). the photos were taken by Caylon Hackwith who is Madelynn’s husband. so there you go – one seriously cool team.
