thanks to Zinzi and Lizzie for introducing me to TEN & Co. – a shoe label that specialises in oxfords that are handmade from vintage Moroccan rugs & supple leather. designer Tory Noll was on a trip to Morocco when she stumbled upon a tiny shoe shop in Marrakech and on a whim had some simple oxfords made from scraps of carpet – and so TEN & Co. was born.
hey, happy friday! here are some things i think are nice. they are nice things (no.14, in fact). though there are only 13 items here… mmm. perhaps i should correspond the number of nice things with the nice things number. nice things no.100 is going to be a doozy, guys. have a good weekend.
you may remember that i’ve posted about Japanese mail order clothing line Syrup before. i had a gander at their latest ranges, which include an Alice in Wonderland line and a Moomin line – as well as their Autumn Range. i can’t really tell you much more than that since google translate isn’t exactly helping me learn Japanese. you can get a pretty good idea of what they offer by checking out their digital autumn catalogue, or just by clicking around the site blindly like i did. it’s fun, trust me.
i have a sort of obsession with the midi-dress / skirt (if you follow me on pinterest you might have picked this up). it is just such a great length to me, so flattering and elegant and something that suits all body types. midi length dresses can take you from summer to winter and back again, you can wear them to formal events just by dressing up with some rad heels… i don’t know, maybe it’s just a personal taste but i love them. and i love seeing girls wear them.
jewellery is something that i love in theory, but never really wear. maybe i’ll sport a ring now and then, or a necklace if i’m feeling really flashy – but mostly i don’t really accessorise as much as i should. this past weekend i bought a new necklace from skermunkil which i love, and it got me browsing the internet for more rad pieces to potentially wear. or dream about wearing. please click on the images to be taken to the relevant designers.
looking through online shop Oysho feels like floating on a cloud made of bunnies and kittens. their socks section alone made me aaaaaaw too much for my own good, not to mention those ridiculously cute animal blankets. but Oysho isn’t all puppies and rainbows – they also have delicate underthings & wonderful beachwear at really reasonable prices.
it’s always great when a wonderfully creative lookbook draws you in, but it’s doubly awesome when you really LOVE the products that are being showcased. Billie Sunday is a new line of bags out of Barcelona by designers Mar Villegas and Emma Pardos. the lookbook for their first collection Sand Paradise, which is inspired by Palm Springs in the early 60s, unfolds over five days and plays out like a sunny sixties thriller. you can shop the collection here.
