Morning Calm

Morning Calm

i’m sitting here, early morning in cape town, with my cup of coffee… and a face mask on. i love this time of day. most people are still sleeping and i feel like i have a secret few hours to just sit in the quiet and do whatever i want. hence the face mask, everyone does their weird personal rituals when they find themselves alone, right? think secret single behaviour.

A Pinboard

i realised that i pin clothes and fashion i like pretty often but don’t share here very much anymore, so i decided to make a colour coded pinboard of garb i like right now. i kind of miss having a cork board above my desk that i would pin real life wants onto, but then again i hardly buy fashion magazines anymore so… that’s the way life changes huh? virtual reality.

Voices of Industry

Voices of Industry

Adele Stafford is the creative mind behind Voices of Industry, who create hand woven apparel and textiles from 100% domestic fiber, farmed and spun in the U.S. Adele hand weaves each piece on a mechanical loom from her studio in Oakland, California and works with a small team of pattern makers and tailors in San Francisco. which is pretty amazing if you consider that almost 98% of all clothing in the US is made internationally. it’s people like Adele & her team who are steadily bringing that number down (and creating beautiful garments at that).

Blush

Blush is a fashion brand by Tel Aviv based Sheryll Raz Gold that sells wonderfully simple, single colour garmets on Etsy. her dresses and tops come in a range of hues, from blush to black to blue to yellow to red – the kind of clothes that i would buy one piece of in every colour.

Yo Vintage: Her

Yo Vintage // Her

Yo Vintage is one of my long time sponsors (please check the sidebar and support these shops & makers!), and owner Sarah just sent over their latest lookbook, entitled Her after the film that’s on most people’s lips at the moment. everybody i meet is either talking about it or i’m telling them to see it (go see it). Yo Vintage is a Portland based online shop that sells wonderful hand-selected vintage as well as new designers.

The Garden Edit

The Garden Edit // Miss Moss

oooh boy did i go down the proverbial rabbit hole when i discovered The Garden Edit. i don’t think i have ooh’d and aah’d so much in a while. first of all, what a BEAUTIFUL site. second of all, what a DREAMY shop. founded by English gardener John Tebbs, The Garden Edit sports a collection of products for, and inspired by, the garden – bringing together a modern collection of products that embody functionality, timelessness and beauty. those copper bird feeders by Vasse Vaught are something else! and they even stock those lovely illustration by Alicia Galer, who i blogged about last year.
