find out where to buy below…
hey, happy friday! here are some things i think are nice. they are nice things (no.14, in fact). though there are only 13 items here… mmm. perhaps i should correspond the number of nice things with the nice things number. nice things no.100 is going to be a doozy, guys. have a good weekend.
1: cat bread board / 2: tilly acorns plate / 3: everlane cashmere / 4: handpainted pom pom wrapping paper / 5: diamond hanging planter / 6: constellation iphone sleeve / 7: pyramid collar tips / 8: lanvin copper toe sneakers / 9: ann-ya leather pouches / 10: hand-painted milk jug / 11: shearer’s soap / 12: the possibilities are endless tote / 13: hinged brass mirrors
i have a sort of obsession with the midi-dress / skirt (if you follow me on pinterest you might have picked this up). it is just such a great length to me, so flattering and elegant and something that suits all body types. midi length dresses can take you from summer to winter and back again, you can wear them to formal events just by dressing up with some rad heels… i don’t know, maybe it’s just a personal taste but i love them. and i love seeing girls wear them.
there are so many short skirts and dresses in the shops here (seems to be the only type you can find in south africa) so i hardly ever, ever come across the longer length that i love – and if i do my size is usually sold out because women snap that shit up, son. get the idea retailers! invariably i end up fantasy online shopping and pinning away pieces i’ll probably never buy – even though i want to. ASOS has a great selection of midi dresses (they know their market) and sometimes when i’m lucky i’ll get a friend who’s visiting overseas to bring me a bulk order of the good stuff.
looking through online shop Oysho feels like floating on a cloud made of bunnies and kittens. their socks section alone made me aaaaaaw too much for my own good, not to mention those ridiculously cute animal blankets. but Oysho isn’t all puppies and rainbows – they also have delicate underthings & wonderful beachwear at really reasonable prices.

Moving Mountains is a studio based in Brooklyn founded by Hawaiian born designer Syrette Lew. i absolutely love the Crosstown bag that doubles as a shoulder bag slash backpack.
