Birkenstock

soooooooo… Birkenstock, huh? as soon as the topic is raised someone will pipe up, “but i’ve been wearing them forever!” – and, it’s true. any reasonable person will tell you how comfortable they are. i practically lived in mine when i was a teen. my German sister in laws have…

Still Wearing the Pants

i abandoned tumblr a fair few months ago because i simply could not keep up with so many bookmarking sites (and it feels like there are new ones popping up every day, which is pretty scary). since then i’ve been using Pinterest exclusively, but i really missed Wearing the Pants (which…

Bon Appétit

i’m really excited to share the first Food & Fashion Mash-Ups series i did for Bon Appétit Magazine! which is a superb publication by the way, we don’t get it in South Africa but i was lucky enough to be given copies of their two latest issues. something i really appreciated…

Beautiful Girls in New York

street style circa 1944, photographed by Alfred Eisenstaedt for a series called beautiful girls in new york for Life. i really think fourties style has to be one of my favourites, though perhaps women in new york have just always looked amazing.

Bumper Fashion Special No.29

i thought of covering some of the recent fall runway shows, but instead i’m leaving that up to kate who will be doing a little round-up as part of a guest series that’s going to kick off later this week! i’m moving into my new apartment this week, so i’ll…

Food & Fashion

Turned Out by Maya

i am subscribed to a lot of blogs. a LOT of blogs. it is not unusual for my reader to shout at me that i have 1000+ unread items. actually it’s more like i’m shouting at my reader because i have 1000 unread items, right? anyway, i keep that shit…

Street Style & the Great Outdoors

i haven’t done one of these in a while, especially not with street style – so i thought it would make for a good post over at Honestly WTF – my last in a guest series i have been doing over there. images from top to bottom: Vanessa Jackman & Hasisi Park ; Susie Bubble & Martin…
