Plante SS16

you may remember Plante from when i first posted about the brand in 2014. sisters Leah & Rebecca Plante have just launched their Spring 2016 collection – i love that classic green skirt, there’s almost nothing more beautiful to me than the combination of a blouse tucked into a long skirt. Plante…

Crescioni Spring 2016

Californian jewellery line Crescioni has a new Spring collection on the block, and i gotta say i love the big chunky pieces – especially all the brass earrings. women need to wear more jewellery at the beach, huh? i feel like this is a very cool department we’re not tapping. swimwear by…

Charlotte Stone

i LOVE the new spring collection from Charlotte Stone. i have two pairs of sandals by this awesome LA based designer, and i have never ever had so many people ask me “where did you get those?”

Tony Chestnut SS15

Easter always marks a change in season for me – over here we are obviously rolling toward winter, and this past weekend was no exception. we lit a fire for the first time in ages! it wasn’t even that cold, but it had to be done. similarly i’ve been noticing…

Yo Vintage! Spring!

i noticed yesterday that a lot of people were tweeting Spring! Spring! and this coincided with a lot of new lookbooks in my inbox celebrating the change in seasons (coincidentally i wore BOOTS this week for the first time in months so i am equally happy). Yo Vintage has just…

& 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…

Three’s Company

there are a few new collections i’ve spotted around lately – three in particular – that have been making me quite excited for summer, and it only makes sense to share them all in one go. three’s company, three time’s a charm… you know what i’m saying. love the vibrant…

Samantha Pleet Spring 13

Mallory shared the latest Samantha Pleet spring collection over on Gems yesterday, and it pretty much nails what i’d love my wardrobe to look like this summer – especially those floral numbers. the one thing that has been quite difficult for me to find, in south africa at least, is…

Fall vs Spring

when i was browsing through the latest spring modern sale at bukowskis (they really bring me endless amounts of joy, that auction house) i was quite taken by all the beautiful flower still life pieces. i thought back to how some of my favourite collections from the autumn 2011 shows…

NORTH / SOUTH

thought i’d highlight the best of both worlds – since you notherners are slowly skipping into spring, and us southerners are steadily creeping into autumn. i’m sure we are both eager for a change … i know i am. NORTH: spring flowers / beating the heat / the beach /…

brrrrights!
