& Other Spring Stories

i went for a little window shopping jaunt during my lunch hour and realised that suddenly it is straight up winter in our local shops. which is quite ridiculous because it’s still the middle of February and it’s HOT outside. it will be for a while still. yet, the colours…

Beautiful Dreamers

Beautiful Dreamers

i could kick myself for not knowing about Brooklyn based shop Beautiful Dreamers while we were in NYC – and it was right around the corner from where we were staying, too! they stock pieces by designers Jesse Kamm, Erin Considine, Electric Feathers, Clyde (those hats!) Lauren Manoogian, Agnes Baddoo…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Myrtle FW 12

Whitney sent over the latest lookbook for her LA based shop Myrtle (you may remember the fantastic Tomboy Style lookbook from earlier this year). it was photographed by Megan McIsaac, and features designers such as Ermie (who wouldn’t recognise those first two dresses), Elkin, Feral Childe, Micaela Greg, and Samantha Pleet amongst…

Bon Boutique

really enjoyed flipping through this kind of Georgie O’Keefe-esque, Frida Kahlo-ish lookbook photographed by Kate Edmundson for Tucson based shop Bon Boutique. thanks to Jen for pointing me in the right direction.

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,…

11th Moon

oh boy am i a sucker for a well curated (online) shop. 11th Moon hits all the right notes… and makes my heart beat a little bit faster than it should. they have an enviable list of designers in their inventory & beautiful styling to boot.

of a kind

of a kind is a pretty unique shopping experience in that they feature an emerging designer each week who releases a limited edition item in a small batch for the public to snap up (and they do – everything that i have browsed through is sold out.) it’s a lovely…
