Mociun White

Mociun White | Miss Moss

you probably already know about Mociun – the Brooklyn based jewellery line by Caitlin Mociun. if you don’t then start off by following them on instagram, which showcases their amazing jewellery – now with sigh inducing videos.

That dress

THAT DRESS | Jenni le Grange photography

i don’t look at wedding blogs at all anymore, mostly because my interest in all things wedding peaked around the time we got married. i still follow a few wedding photographers on Instagram, because i admire their talent and i love seeing when they share genuine moments (rather than, say, amazing floral centrepieces). that’s how i discovered Jenni le Grange, a wedding photographer based in Cape Town, and while browsing through her website i saw THE MOST AMAZING DRESS.

Nuptial Nostalgia

Miss Moss: Vintage Weddings

you can probably tell by my extensive vintage archives that i love looking at old photos. if i visit someone’s home, even if they’re a complete stranger, and i find an old photo album lying around i can’t resist but page through it. i think it’s so sad that we can’t really do that now. i mean, i’m not going to go scroll through your Facebook albums – that’s just weird, and creepy. right?

Self-Portrait

Self-Portrait. find out where to buy at Miss Moss.

earlier this week i stumbled upon these awesome new dresses by UK based label Self-Portrait on ASOS – but by the time i compiled and started writing this post half of them were sold out! which isn’t a surprise, because they are awesome.

Mignonne Handmade

i got unexpectedly caught up in a serious wedding frenzy when we got married, something i wasn’t anticipating. the excitement can turn even the most blasé and un-girly girl into a sudden pinterest addict. don’t get me wrong, it was fun. i look back fondly on my wedding induced madness.

Houghton Bride FW15

Houghton Bride FW15

whatever, i would wear any of these dresses even if i weren’t getting married.  the Houghton Bride FW15 collection is bad ass. “I am creating a bridal collection for the woman who wants to get married in something simple, sexy and timeless.” says Katharine Polk, the designer behind Houghton. i’d say you nailed it, Katharine.

Truvelle

next weekend we celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. it feels like it was years ago, yet minutes ago. my dress is still hanging in the same position in our cupboard, skirt flecked with dirt and doubtlessly splattered with champagne – as if it happened yesterday.

Reformation

Reformation

every day i go online i think, this is it – there’s nothing new for me to discover. i know all the clothing designers, i have seen it all. nope. wrong. every day there’s something new-to-me. i was actually surprised i hadn’t come across Reformation before (pardon me Americans if i am super slow on the uptake, so uncool!) they make these damn beautiful dresses that you can buy in a variety of colours & patterns. yes! that’s the dream.

Marriage

yesterday i listened to an amazing story on The Moth by critically acclaimed author Andrew Solomon about his journey to becoming a father. Andrew is gay, and he got married to his partner John after initial hesitation as he wasn’t sure if he believed in the idea of marriage. they wed in a civil partnership ceremony in the UK (at Althorp, Princess Diana’s childhood home – love that) and what he said in the podcast* about the act of getting married is lovely:
