Ok so I got super spoilt by the team over at Dear Rae. WOW. I received a beautifully packaged ring yesterday with loads of photos of their new Let’s Go Tropsi Collection, which is really pretty and delicate and made up of glints of gold, native shapes and lavish colours that come through in the use of precious stones. I’m a huge fan of Dear Rae’s creations, in fact every time I wear any Dear Rae piece that I own, someone asks me where it comes from. I find everything that they make so simple and unfussy, but really eye catching and beautiful at the same time and I’m super happy with my awesome ‘delicious monster’ ring that they sent me, which I definitely think needs some friends, because they look so good stacked.
Wowzers how absolutely amazing and beautiful are these pieces from the Valentino Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection? It makes me sad that I don’t think I will ever own something as special as one of these dresses. Sigh and damn them all to hell.
My friend Kristin is opening up her very own Black Betty jewellery store in the Bryanston Shopping Centre, Cnr William Nicol/ Ballyclaire Drive. Her stuff is so so pretty and delicate and pretty and I just want everything. I’m not sure it’s a good thing that she now has a shop I can visit anytime. I have blogged about her stuff before, just click here to have a bit of a online drool.
I came across this brand, Luckyboysunday quite a while back on someones site, there 6-finger pillow had me at first sight and then I went to look at all the other quirky and flipping awesome things that these ladies make. I would love one of their finger pillows and one of their strange, but oh so amazing knitted dolls for Nina James.
I love it when local people make awesome local things to share with the rest of us local folk. And that’s my I’m happy to tell you about this company called Veltwerk that make such cool leather (vegetable-dyed leather sourced from local tanneries) and velt bags. They have just launched their new online store and everything on it is worth a lust over. So I thought I would share their products with you and if you feel like a bit of a ‘spoil yourself’ moment, head on over to veltwerk.co.za
This simple, but oh so beautiful jewellery is made by sisters Noriko and Akiko Sugawara under their label n+a new york. They’re so delicate but imperfect at the same time, I really like them.
