Oh yesss, the fanny pack/bum bag that everyone loved to hate when the 90's came to an end. These bad boys have tickled my fancy for the past two years simply for it's functionality. I have noticed it's making a comeback and I'm still on that bandwagon. These ones by Celine are just perf. Wouldn't you agree?
Vivian Maier is one of my favourite photographers. I've previously blogged about her here and here. Her self portraits are so captivating, it rightfully deserves another post. You can view and buy her work at artsy.
Thank you for your views and emails even though I've been distracted and my lack of posts are just shameful Anyway, I recently discovered Beaufille, a brand owned by sisters, Chloe and Parris Gordon. Beaufille was launched in 2013 so they're fairly new and I'm wholly smitten with the brand's philosophy; "The name Beaufille translates to 'handsome girl', channeling the brands aesthetic and designs which focus on the play between masculine and feminine elements, the combination of hard and soft...."
Their Fall 2015 collection delightfully exudes that. Those turtlenecks, loose knits, wrap skirts and sleeveless topcoat would be ideal for my new Winter wardrobe.
Good ol' instagram allow us to share our beautiful surroundings. Cape Town is too beautiful and I like to share it. Here are some of my latest instagram posts. xx

Howzit? I hope you're all fine and dandy. I'm not going to rant about how busy I am. Life is good and I'm grateful that I have a job, a home, family etc etc etc. Life gets even better when I get the opportunity to be a blob on the couch and look at glorious illustrations by Dadu Shin ( I previously blogged about this genius here). This New York based illustrator rocks my little world.
Tailored, elongated and classic. Those are three words that came to mind when I saw this collection. I haven't been blogging and people have been wondering why. I'm not lazy, I'm devoted to the kids in my class and presently, they richly deserve all of my energy. We're constantly evolving and I'm at a stage in my life which includes a lot of spiritual development. As much as I love fashion, I also love many other things. Right now, at this very moment, I'm appreciating the art of John Patrick's designs.. I'll also be styling in the very near future. Stay tuned if you're interested. xx
Hello hi there. My sincere apologies that I've been MIA but school just started and I've been getting into the swing of things. It has been a little cray to say the least. Sooo, It's Sunday and I finally have the chance to show you Claudine Doury's photography. During the week, I visually indulged in her work and her series Artek really resonated with me. I love the mood and the way she, over a period of 10 years, delicately captured these teens at a Summer camp in the Soviet Union. The 7th image is my fave and it would look great on my wall.
I love everything about Erin Wasson including her Venice beach home. I spotted this on Studded Hearts (original post by Tales of Endearment by Natalie Joos) which means you probably have seen it already but I love this woman so much I had to share it on my little baby. There are so many antiques, it's just too good. Decor inspiration to the max. Have a super weekend. xo
Jillian Boustred is a graduate from the University of Technology in Sydney. Her recent collection, Undercurrent are like art pieces. All of the garments are structured, simple and over sized so that Boustred could use it as a canvas. It's quite exciting when such talent catches your eye. I looked at this collection with deep and thorough admiration.
