Agyness Deyn For Mr Price

I was so excited when I heard that Miss Deyn would be working with Mr Price here in sunny South Africa! She's a huge name in the fashion industry and popular culture. Kudos to them for pulling it off!

Wanted: Fisherman's Pullover

Come to me, come to me fisherman's pullover...

I wish someone would surprise me by knitting one for me. Maybe I could find one in a second-hand shop because I doubt I'd find one in little old PE's selection of "high street" shops. Recently I called out a manager type at a well known retailer for stocking and promoting clothing that I felt was a bit out of touch. I'm against shops being overly trendy but I feel that our major retailers need to be more in tune with what people on the streets and overseas are wearing, and how they put what they are wearing together. The manager type asked me if I wanted to go to Cape Town and train to become a buyer - I told her I'm quite happy with my Architecture studies.

Second Time Around

I can spend an entire afternoon getting lost in an antique or second hand shop.

I want this retro sideboard!

I'm Crazy About Coloured Glass

I'll have that light thanks. It's a bit over the top but it's fun and it definitely has a great presence at night.

This Is My World...

I want to go back to Nieu Bethesda and visit the Owl House.


I love old Industrial and Agricultural buildings.

Retro Chairs

I love random 50's/60's/70's chairs. I want them for my future weekend getaway with a veranda, somewhere on the outskirts of a town in the Western Cape or the Karoo. With a fantastic view ofcourse.

The Modern Gentleman

The second gentleman has such fantastic style - I'm a little jealous! And the first look makes me wish I could carry a white t-shirt but I really can't. It's so classic. Makes me think of James Dean, the 1950's and Jon Kortajarena's character in Tom Fords "A Single Man". So darn classy. Here's another:

Village Green

Snapped this at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. An art installation made up of thousands of bottle caps and lids! Quite remarkable.
