Crescioni Fall 2016

aaaaaaah, Crescioni. can you feel that? yes, it’s the smell of fresh leather and brass. Crescioni’s Fall 2016 collection is filled with these things, including all new handbags. better yet they now have an online shop, when previously you could only view their collections online. score! Crescioni handbags are an extension…

Nandi Naya

i discovered jewellery line Nandi Naya randomly while browsing one day, and judging by the name i wondered to myself if there was a South African link somewhere. turns out the designer behind the label is Hleziphansi Zita, and the line is named for her daughter, Nandi. Hleziphansi Zita was born and…

What would I buy from ASOS?

my husband was in London recently for work and i jumped at the chance to order a few things on ASOS. i hadn’t browsed there in so long because i gave up on shopping online internationally long ago – the customs duties! – and i found i was overwhelmed by what was available…

Caves Collect

a funny thing happens when you have a baby. besides the whole gaining weight and weird postpartum tummy deal, you just dress differently. well – i did. i can honestly say that for the first 10 weeks of his life i wore leggings, nursing tops and oversized checked shirts. that’s ALL. i…

Eugenia Zoloto’s Papercuts

papercut art is nothing new, but i’m so impressed by the size & intricacy of these pieces by Ukrainian artist Eugenia Zoloto – and they’re all cut by hand. she says of her art… Many years ago, when I was a little girl, my parents took me to every possible hobby…

Don Fisher

Don Fisher – i loooooove this shop! i mean, to have an entire shop dedicated just to fish is amazing. their sweet little bags, pouches, prints and even beach towels are just the cutest.

Goodies No. 28

there are so many great things on Etsy these days, i find myself browsing the app when i am nursing at 2am… anyone else do weird things when they are up with their baby in the middle of the night? if i’m not browsing Etsy then i’m scrolling through Pinterest…

Caitlin She

i was so surprised & delighted when i received an email from Caitlin Shearer introducing her eponymous clothing label Caitlin She. i have been following her illustrative work for years and years, before i even started the blog! Caitlin heralds from Australia and is an illustrator, seamstress, curator and clothing and textile designer… We’ve…

Seaworthy: Gravity

aah it’s always so wonderful for me to see new work from long favourite designers. Marisa Howard of Seaworthy has just added some sterling silver pieces to her latest collection, Gravity. i looooove those large hoop earrings. Sterling silver has a rich history, dating back to the 12th century. I’ve…

Tony Chestnut Summer 2016

the one thing i’m pretty excited about right now, besides actually meeting our baby, is the prospect of wearing “normal” clothes again. i have been rotating the same 5 pieces for what feels like, well, 9 months – and i’m ready to dip into my usual wardrobe. so when designer Jill…

Letterclub

hey! feel like i haven’t spoken to you guys in ages. that’s because our life has been turned upside down – we moved into our new house (where there is still no internet connection…) and i am officially nearing the end of my pregnancy. as in, our boy could come any day…

Baby Things

above: kaleidoscope cloud blanket. forgive me, for i am not in my right mind. i am a broody, anxiously waiting mom-to-be. i can’t stop thinking about babies. our baby. we are only a month away from welcoming the little dude, so i’m awake at 2am googling “do i REALLY need a changing table?”…

Badass Rings

lately i’ve been noticing some seriously cool badass rings around. the trend in the past few years has been towards fine, dainty jewellery – especially stacking rings (which i still and will always love). but recently i’ve been really drawn to the more chunky variety, maybe it’s because my fingers are so…
