Black & White Etsy Finds

Miss Moss: Black & White Etsy Finds

Etsy is probably one of my favourite places to shop online, and has been forever! i just love that you can talk directly to the seller, it makes such a big difference especially when you’re shipping things overseas. i’ve had my most pain-free shopping experiences through Etsy. and i find amazing stuff on there all. the. time.

Dear Frances

when i first saw the new AW15 collection by London based shoe line Dear Frances i actually said “oooooooh this is GOOD!” out loud. the collection is called Lagom, which means “not too little, not too much, just right” in Swedish.

Nice Things No. 23

Miss Moss: Nice Things No.23

one of my favourite things about shopping from Etsy is that you can contact the seller directly, chat to them about special orders and shipping needs (which, sometimes, means you can avoid international customs charges – woohoo!) but most of all that you get to support small, independent shops and designers. there’s so much rad stuff out there, and it can be hard to wade through it all – so here’s a nice shopping list, in the form of a Nice Things.

Nice Things No. 22

Miss Moss: Nice Things No.22

if you check in around here on your browser you might have noticed a Shop link in the top menu. since i can’t do a million Nice Things posts i thought i would occasionally update my virtual wishlist, making it easy for you to browse and shop – if you like! it’s also a super handy way for me to tell my husband about gift ideas. hint, hint.

Mono Wardrobe. Monodrobe.

this past winter i realised that almost every single thing i bought was black and i would wear it with white or denim or whatever – but overwhelmingly black, nonetheless. and i was more than okay with that. i am currently mourning the impending loss of my rad MONODROBE with the oncoming heat we’ll be experiencing soon (shudder… or should i say, sweat?)

A Pinboard

i realised that i pin clothes and fashion i like pretty often but don’t share here very much anymore, so i decided to make a colour coded pinboard of garb i like right now. i kind of miss having a cork board above my desk that i would pin real life wants onto, but then again i hardly buy fashion magazines anymore so… that’s the way life changes huh? virtual reality.

Gift Guide No.4

preview

i received a comment the other day from a fellow south african asking for more local gift ideas, which made me pause and reflect for a second. personally i only buy local products for christmas. i think we have amazing designers & makers and i am lucky enough to live in a city that brings all that to the fore. i usually go do my shopping sometime in the week before the 25th so that i absolutely leave everything to the last minute and stress myself out as much as possible. kidding. i like going out and buying gifts, looking at things myself, discovering new places and new people! around this time of year we have great pop-up shops and markets selling the wares of a multitude of designers. i will always ask if their products are available online, sometimes they are – but a lot of the times they aren’t. that’s the only reason why i don’t make solely south african gift guides.
