just want to take a minute to thank my sponsors this month and highlight some of the gems for you to check out at their shops / blogs. i love supporting independent designers & shops – if you’re interested in sponsoring just email me.

Of A Kind releases limited edition designer items each week that tend to sell out fast. you might remember the giveaway i hosted last year – we’ll be doing another one this Friday so check in to see what you could win!

Duff of Jean Jean Vintage sells beautiful vintage & antique jewellery. she also just had a baby (congrats Duff!) you can follow her on her blog too – love this post matching vintage necklaces to the Crawley gals from Downton Abbey.

Nancybird is an accessories label based in Melbourne whose beautiful bags i featured last year. they’ve just released their latest collection with a wonderful lookbook to match.

Minoux is a handcrafted jewellery range from Portland with splashes of colour that steal my heart.

Nextness is the blog of the STW group, and is a treasure trove for anyone into creativity, trends and inspiration… i love their inspiration section and particularly enjoyed this post lessons for creatives by David Hockney

Yo Vintage! sells vintage clothing sourced from the US, UK & Switzerland from their online shop (worldwide shipping, peeps) …they just released their latest lookbook Prints Charming which charmed the pants off me.

Paper & Chain is run by friends Ismay and Naomi who make handmade & unique jewellery. i simply love their hexagon necklaces and earrings.

regular blog readers will be familiar with Lauren who runs the amazing vintage shop Dear Golden. i have a few DG items in my cupboard, and i’m hoping to expand my collection… perhaps with one of these beauties.

Shop Cuffs is a boutique based in Sacramento that specialises in new & vintage clothing for men and women. they also ship worldwide (yay!)

Noemie is a designer from Toronto who runs the lovely blog As Ink Remains. i particularly enjoy her recipe posts, especially this antipasto plate which is the kind of food i could eat forever and ever.

Christmas Stocking

it’s a public holiday today in south africa and i’m officially on holiday! which means i now have to start doing my christmas shopping. as much as i inwardly groan thinking about the crowds, truth is i love giving people gifts. and, well, i enjoy receiving gifts too… here are a few things from my sponsors i would love to find in my christmas stocking.

a special secret edition necklace by Erica Weiner for Of a Kind – you have to be a subscriber to their newsletter to shop this one. i love receiving their newsletter every friday to see the new editions.

new pink marbled leather pieces at Ann-Ya. YES!

MOR perfume oils at Eden. i would want these based on packaging alone.

vintage brooches from Jean Jean Vintage

any and all dresses at Edelweiss by Sarah.

ruby lingerie set at Fortnight Lingerie (high waisted panties = yes)

Christina: Things I Like Right Now

Rounding up my inaugural sponsors things i like right now showcase is Christina Remenyi, the amazing talent behind exquisite lingerie label Fortnight Lingerie. i love seeing how much i have in common with these great gals – i am also obsessed with those acne pistol boots, won’t say no to vanilla soft serve (ever) and am in the habit of drinking my morning coffee out of vintage cups and mugs.

1. Drinking coffee out of vintage Pyrex mugs. An Everyday event.

2. Elephants. My favourite animal. Period.

3. Gotye. I got hooked on the song “somebody that I used to know” … the whole album is stunning.

4. Retro Motels. I wish I had a time machine.

5. Acne Pistol. Black leather boot perfection

6. Game of Thrones. I know that Anabela already mentioned this in her likes, but it’s so good it deserves more love. I just finished the first season and can’t WAIT for the next one.

7. St. John’s Bridge. This is a double like… one for bridges and the other for Portland. I’ve always been in awe of these majestic, man-made passageways. Portland has many bridges connecting the eastern and western parts of town. Just left after 4 days of amazing food, coffee, music and brews and I can’t wait to go back!

8. Stevie Nicks. Enough said.

9. Vanilla Soft-Serve Ice Cream. Simple and perfect… even in the winter.

10. This Ring by Portland based designer Autoctona. I don’t wear much jewelry… but this is an exception.

Noémie: Things I Like Right Now

when Noémie sent me her things i like right now she had sorted it all in a handy pinterest board (there are some extras in there not on list list, so go have a look). the design of the collage came out pretty naturally as a result. Noémie is a Toronto based blogger behind As Ink Remains – another of my inaugural sponsors.

  1.  CAT PLATE: I’m pretty obsessed with all things kitty – and this plate from Donna Wilson would just make my day.
  2. RACHEL COMEY GARRET LACE-UP: I love how these look a little tough and could totally give any outfit a bit more edge.
  3. CHARLOTTE OLYMPIA KITTY FLATS: leopard print + kitty face = perfection.
  4. THE CIVIL WARS: I’m really into their soulful take on folk music.  Barton Hallow is great listening.
  5. ICE CREAM POSTER: I’ve been eying this Debbie Carlos poster for ages… about time I make a purchase. It would look pretty awesome hanging over my couch.
  6. GARNETT JEWELRY BRASS BANGLE: I’m thinking this would look great with my Future Mister’s name on it, or a significant date on the underside…
  7. ISABEL MARANT MATI PULLOVER: I’m in love with anything heathered, or marled, or salt and pepper. Would probably look great over some chambray or an oxford.
  8. HOPE CAPTAIN SWEATER. Salt and pepper sweaters… what can I say – I love them.
  9. BLACK KEYS NEW ALBUM: El Camino has been on my radar ever since my obsession with Brothers.  Lonely Boy is currently the song I turn to when I need to turn a frown upside down.
  10. ALEXA CHUNG: no, not talking about her style, but her hair. I wish mine did what hers does on a daily basis.
  11. ANYTHING COFFEE: I’m obsessed with cafe mochas and americanos. Crema in Toronto does some good coffee too.
  12. ICELAND: I’m convinced I’ll live in Iceland for a few years of my life. These photos from Grandchildren are so soft and ethereal.
  13. STICK-PINS: I’m really into collar tips right now, but stick pins are a nice alternative too.
  14. HIGH WAISTED UNDIES: These ones from The Loved One are lovely.  They’re only thing that makes sense under high waisted pants! (They’re also way sexy)
  15. ISABEL MARANT COAT: I’ve been shopping for something less “parka” and more lady. This is a beautiful option.
  16. JACK SPADE BRIEF: What better way to carry a laptop than in this?
  17. YELLOW MOUNTAIN: I lived in China for a year and climbed a mountain that looks just like this. Sometimes when Toronto is being a jerk, I think back on it and miss it tons!
  18. SHIRTS UNDER SWEATERS: I’m obsessed. All I want to wear these days are shirts buttoned all the way up, with a sweater that’s a bit too short over it.
