Couverture & The Garbstore Giveaway

the giveaway is now closed. winner to be announced soon.


Couverture & The Garbstore is one of my fantastic sponsors, a concept store located in the heart of London’s Notting Hill that boasts three floors and is made up of two sections – Couverture which specialises in womenswear, accessories, kidswear, homeware and vintage finds; and The Garbstore which is their own menswear label. They have a fantastic online shop that sells pieces from independent designers and some of my personal favourites like Rachel Comey, Steven Alan, Minä Perhonen, Charlotte Linton, A Détacher, Colenimo and tons more.

No.6 Daily

i love checking into the No.6 blog to see what new pieces they’re carrying, and their informal photographs are always fun to look at. for those who don’t know, No. 6 is a shop in NYC (run by vintage collector Morgan Yakus and stylist Karin Bereson) that stocks vintage pieces, contemporary independent designers and their own amazing line of clothing and shoes. oh, the shoes. i want a pair of No.6 clogs so much it HURTS. they also carry shoes by Rae Jones (seen in the pics below) that are simply amazing.

Grace Spring 2012

Alison sent me the Spring lookbook for her lovely accessories label Grace. she also carries a scarf called the Diana, which literally has my name written all over it.

Katherine Hooker

the second i saw this first look by katherine hooker i thought out of africa – which is kind of appropriate since katherine was born to american parents in cyprus, raised in north africa and moved to england at the age of 9.  she creates timeless handmade pieces using only the very best tweeds for winter and silks and linens for summer. pieces can be custom made or bought from her ready-to-wear range.
