you know how some people always say that they don’t use their watches / clocks anymore because they just read the time on their phones? i am not one of those people.
i’m so into everything at Toast right now, especially this awesome Early Spring collection. this is officially how i want to look all the time. how am i going to make this happen? i’m just going to try to look as sleepy as possible, as this is clearly the brief these models were given: pretend you’re coming out of a long hibernation. “wow it’s so beautiful out here in this sunny field / relaxing on this boat / gazing out at this historical European village, but i’m just SO sleepy you guys!”
Marion Hanania is the designer & founder of vegan footwear brand Good Guys who i’ve featured many times around here. born and raised in Paris, Marion has been spending the past 6 months in California – a move which is truly reflected in her bright & sunny new SS15 collection. i looooove those colour block sandals!
i blitzed through a book this past weekend (which wasn’t amazing, but has comparisons to Gone Girl – so if you’re into whodunits maybe give it a whirl) and the main character kept mentioning slipping into a “sexy black teddy” that her husband had bought for her. i couldn’t roll my eyes hard enough because, first of all, stop calling it a teddy and also the idea of someone buying a woman lingerie has always confused me. what if it doesn’t fit? what if it’s cheap and itchy? what if it makes you look like a weirdo? what if you just don’t LIKE it?
Hackwith Design House has just released their all-new swimwear collection. there are currently several different styles of bikini tops and bottoms, as well as two full piece suits, in either black or white that you can mix and match to your liking. but probably my favourite part is that you can see the pieces worn by two different models so that you can get a better idea of how the suit might fit your body type.
Vuela has been one of my consistent sponsors for 3 years now (that’s like 27 years in internet time) so i’m excited to share their very first lookbook showcasing a wide array of homeware, apparel, jewellery & accessories by independent designers the world over. i’m really into that rope market basket and workaday handmade ceramics.

here’s an update so what’s been going on at Beautiful Dreamers, the Brooklyn based store that i featured over a year ago. i really don’t need an excuse to show you these wonderful wares, do i? i’m really jonesing for those gorgeous ceramic vessels by April Napier and that beautiful bucket bag by Samantha Grisdale.
