Pajamas, Pyjamas (Potatoes, Potahtoes)

Jim Jams

i decided to title this post Jim Jams because that’s what i call pyjamas. no, i’m not five. but it’s easier than trying to decide if i should go with the British spelling of pyjamas or the wholly more sensible American spelling of pajamas. PJs, jim jams, pyjamas, pajamas, sleepwear – whatever…

Goodies No. 26

we are on HOLIDAY! right now i’m sitting at the kitchen table in Anton’s family’s holiday house in Kei watching the sea with one eyeball, contemplating what book i’m going to read next. i already finished Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter in one day, a thriller slash murder mystery that i enjoyed…

Miss Moss: Kids Things

Kids Things

i was conflicted about doing this post because the one thing i feel weird about is “designing” your kid’s life, or creating a remotely instagrammeable lifestyle for your kid. on the other hand i think some kids things are pretty sweet, and i find myself straying into kidswear departments pretty often…

Here Are Some Bags I Like

above image and bags by Mansur Gavriel i won’t hesitate to say that my Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag is one of my most prized possessions. but, i have only used it twice… okay maybe three times. i am SO scared of ruining it that it’s actually a joke! right now it is…

Miss Moss: Black & White Etsy Finds

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…

Shani Jacobi

the star of Shani Jacobi’s wonderful jewellery are these “ear jacket” LOVE earrings that i think are just about the coolest thing ever. she makes them in a variety of other styles too. in fact all her jewellery is pretty awesome. i also love these graphic studs. you can shop it all on…

Dear Frances

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. Jane Frances studied at the London College of Fashion and ModaPelle…

Miss Moss: Nice Things No.23

Goodies 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…

Miss Moss: Nice Things No.22

Goodies 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!…

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…

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…

Uniform

i discovered this old post and thought it deserved a revival of sorts. 6 outfits made up of 3 essential items. they are not all budget friendly though, i apologise. if i make fantasy outfits they really tend to be exactly that. row 1: A.P.C. Jenny Sweater // Weekend by…

& Other Stories

whenever i discover a new online shop i go through various stages of emotion. 1. i’m excited by all the beautiful clothes. 2. i’m sad that i can’t order any of them. 3. i’m relieved because my credit card sits untouched. rinse, and repeat. so when Catherine alerted me to & Other Stories i went through…
