Egretta Garzetta

i must confess that underwear is pretty much at the bottom of my list of priorities when it comes to clothes shopping. big purchases are reserved for shoes, leather goods… maybe the occasional fancy dress. but undies, those come in packs of 5 and usually cost me less than a take-away dinner. but i still like the idea of fancy underwear. there’s also something incredibly cool about knowing your underwear is handmade (as if you’re a French aristocrat lazing about at Versailles all day). that’s where Egretta Garzetta comes in. affordable handmade lingerie, bras and panties made in Riga, Latvia.

Egretta Garzetta offers you the comfort and quality of handmade underwear. Every item in my shop is created from carefully selected materials and designed to gently fit the sensitive parts of your body. This lingerie is created by female hands for female needs – with a wish to make you feel beautiful and as comfortable as you can. Here you will find light and soft pieces, reminding the fluff of a dandelion, pieces as expressive and colorful as a tropical butterfly, pieces to match an active lifestyle… and a lot more!

Totokaelo

i am really loving all the new arrivals at Totokaelo, and especially love how they have styled and shot their products. seeing actual movement makes such a difference, i think. i’m also pretty jealous that the northerners are moving into autumn… my favourite season. glad we will get to experience a snippet of that again next month when we visit NYC.

Anthom

ANTHOM has a sweet new lookbook out, which was inspired by 16th century Dutch “kitchen and market” paintings, and features their range of accessories juxtaposed with collected curiosities and harvested leaves and flowers, all on a soft marble background. i’be highlighted some of my favourite pieces at the bottom of the post – check out ANTHOM now.

Book/Shop

Book/Shop is an Oakland based online & brick-and-mortar shop that specialises in products and paraphernalia related to reading – of actual real life books, not the online kind. of course they have actual books for sale, but also deal in other interesting things like book related art & vintage posters (love this Read Instead print) and even small furnishings to keep your books organised.

We’re committed to the reading experience. The surprise of one page turning to the other. The little luxury of sitting in a great reading chair, inhaling the scent of a beautifully made book. The luscious heft of three or four good reads in a sturdy bookbag as you head out into the world. The hundred discoveries waiting at a used bookstore; the refuge of a library.

Thisispaper Shop

i have been inspired by Thisispaper for a long time, and often reference it as one of the best out there when anyone asks me what my favourite design blogs are. it is so well curated, with a clear aesthetic thread that pulls everything together. so i was thrilled when creators Alexander and Zuzanna contacted me yesterday to share their recent Thisispaper Shop launch – which they have been teasing regular readers with for some time! says Alexander,

About half a year ago we had an idea of making a few accessories and selling them under thisipaper label. We spent the last few months  sewing our own pieces (mostly bags and rucksacks) and searching for suppliers of items we couldn’t make ourselves. we designed a few items for the kitchen – jars, mugs, manual juice squeezers and many more. The collection grew and Thisispaper Shop was born.

Aritzia

despite the kinda ritzy name, Canadian retailer Aritzia has very beautiful wearable pieces, and some snazzy floral numbers too. i’ve always loved the idea of floral pants, but can’t pull them off myself – so whenever i see a gal rocking a pair i applaud the universe.

ps: you might notice things look a bit different around here. i did some spring cleaning… still ironing out the kinks though, so if you’re viewing this on safari on a mac in outer space i can’t guarantee everything is in the right place. but i’ll get there!
