Coperni Femme S/S 2015 is a Parisian ready to wear brand established in 2013 and owned by designers, Arnaut Vaillant and Sebastien Meyer. In my amateur opinion, this collection has a Parisian flair to it. It's compact which consists of A line skirts, mini dresses and stream lined trousers. The blouse with the knotted twists at the wrists adds a bit of boldness to this clean and simple collection.
Every now and then I check out my followers on pinterest and yesterday I discovered Madelynn Furlong from Wide Eyed Glass. Honestly, I stalked her and I deeply fell in love with her style, her instagram account...errthang. She is an art director, fashion blogger and creative consultant. What an inspiration!

Firstly, I'd like to mention that I've read my previous posts and all I've been whinging about was how busy I've been for the past few months. Urgh, how annoying?! My eyes have never rolled so far back in my head. Soo people, it's Easter and I'm eggcited because that means I'm on holiday! So, enough about me. Diem Chau's embroidered porcelain dishware is just simply incredible. The figures are mainly based on memories and she worked from old family photos of relatives that she has never met. The detail of her work is either symbolic or tells a story. Her crayon sculptures are equally as impressive. Check out her website here.
"Chau combines common mediums and common means to create delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture and form,resulting in works that combine egalitarian sensibility and minimalist restraint. Her work touches on the value of Storytelling,Myths and its ability to connect us to each other through cultural and humanistic similarities. Chau's current work drifts into new territory by exploring the periphery of the narrative, moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain."
How good is this? I love wearing clothes that can drape yet still achieve a form of refined femininity so it's inevitable that Ajla Ayidan's S/S 2015 collection floats my sweet boat. Those voluminous fabrics and classic elegance caught my attention. It's absolutely glorious!

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
