I'm a pinterest addict and if you follow me you'll know this full well. My friends tell me it's a problem but yet they seem to check out my latest pins, so if you haven't you probably should too. So, go forth and see here fo yo-self!
Barbora Vesela's latest collection of shoes was inspired by geological maps and eroded rocks. She used leather leftovers and a classic shoe making technique to create this incredible collection. To watch the process, go here

Hello there! It's almost been a week since I blogged. How tragic? It's the end of the year so right now school has consumed my life but it's all good. One needs to be positive and look on the bright side, I'm almost on holiday ( the perks of being a teacher, eh? you're all jels, I can feel it) and it's Summer!!! Anyway, this is a quick post just to share a track that I cannot get enough of. Chet Faker (and his delicious beard) is one of my faves. Listen to this track by Flume and Mr Faker and you'll love me forevs.

I recently read a blog post by Eric Kim (read here) about photographer,Andre Kertesz(1894 –1985). Since then,I've been terribly interested in his work and decided to share some of my favourite images. I'm in a bit of a rush because I'm going to watch the rugby with my dad (SA vs Scotland). Yes, sometimes I watch the rugby and I like it!

How amazing? No, seriously this Russian fashion goddess never ceases to impress me. I'm loving the silhouettes and the pink flamingo/ tree prints. Viva la Vika Gazinskaya! aaaand viva la weekends! Have a good one.
I seriously love it when a man can wear a good quality bag so I literally sighed when I saw this. I tried to pronounce Atelier de l'Armee and mumbled like a nervous kid but it's so good, it's worth the tongue twist. Their F/W 2013 collection is quite nifty and consists of handmade bags made from deadstock leathers and military fabrics. They also have a pretty sweet vintage collection for men. See here
I've always wanted a pair of Wrangler jeans and their Summer look book doubled the yearning to own a pair. Inspired by the 70's and 90's ( two of my fave era's), it's the perfect combination of classic and grunge. Happy Friday!

Phuong My's F/W 2013 collection is so breathtaking, I've probably looked at this a dozen times. I love the feminine silhouettes and the different variety of silk.
During the 90's I had a bit of a crush on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I thought he was so cool and super stylin'. These shots of Xavier by Anna Victoria Best for Fucking Young Online reminded me so much of Will "The Fresh Prince" Smith particuarly the gorgeous hair. Gosh, I miss the nineties. Happy Friday!
