Nancybird SS15

i can always count on the Australians to be on the same wavelength as us. weather wise, at least. i often get emails from overseas people who then round off with, “hope you’re enjoying the summer!” well it’s winter here, actually. hope you’re enjoying your summer, though! the Aussies and…

The ASOS Dress

i have a very bizarro habit of browsing ASOS for dresses… often. i don’t know what it is, probably because i like to be overly prepare for things (eg buying a new outfit for a wedding that’s 6 months away, or getting my summer dresses now while it’s still raining). so, may as…

Rebecca Gladstone

i’ve always been much more of a gold jewellery kinda girl myself, but these silver pieces by Rebecca Gladstone are lovely – especially modelled on this blonde girl with the cool haircut. you can buy online at her website or etsy shop.

Spotlight

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…

Magnolia Antic

i imagine the woman who wears clothing from Barcelona based Magnolia Antic to be very, very refined. an Audrey Hepburn type who smells like, well, magnolias possibly. shop the collection here and if you’re in Barcelona visit their shop here.

AYR

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…

Another Feather: Pearl

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…

June Things

i got a bit sidetracked today while looking at wedding dresses for a friend online, and ended up creating a very wanty June things list. funny thing is it’s pretty cold here right now (i’m actually sitting on a hot water bottle as we speak! my buns are so cold,…

Lee Coren

you may remember my post last year about designer Lee Coren who makes such beautiful textiles. Lee has just released her latest collection, which was inspired by a trip to Italy.

Wintervacht is a Dutch company by young designers Yoni van Oorsouw and Manon van Hoeckel that is known for their repurposed woollen blankets that they make into beautiful coats (could do with one of those now, it was really COLD for the first time in Cape Town yesterday). for their…
