personal style

bluestockings

hold on a second while i mentally jump up and down from excitement at the discovery of this local style blog bluestockings, by emma durr & michelle gow (transplants from england and canada respectively). as far as i can see most of these photos were taken in stellenbosch in and around the university campus, which means i am doubly excited. nice little interviews, quality writing, beautiful photos and excellent local style is the word of the day at bluestockings

frida

it is not often that you see street style photos of a model wearing something other than skin tight jeans or teeny tiny shorts (why shouldn’t they, i suppose?) that’s why i love these shots of frida gustavsson wearing a classic vintage dress that actually goes past her knees… and has long sleeves to boot. demure can be sexy, ladies.

eva update

one of the most searched for topics on here is eva fontanelli, so i thought i’d give you a little update on recent sightings of the quirky & beautiful italian fashion editor that i’ve bookmarked.

m.i.a.

m.i.a. at last night’s met costume institute gala. if the word fierce didn’t suck so much now, it would apply here.

go here to see the rest of my favourites (christina hendricks cuts a striking figure, as usual). oh, and alexa chung

mystery girl

i’m coming across this lady on different blogs and i have no idea who she is. do you? all i know is i just loved that image of her in the pink scalloped jacket (perfect), and then when i saw her in the orange skirt i recognised her. later i discovered i had actually saved an image of last year. ah, great taste.
