SCOUT & CATALOGUE F/W 12

A couple of weeks ago, I was ooh-ing and aah-ing over Scout & Catalogue’s S/S 12 lookbook, over here. Well, here they are again – in all their glory! Their new Fall/Winter 2012 campaign is absolutely to die for! The scarves are stunning, and the clutches, the clutches…oh my! How on earth would one ever choose, well, just one? Ha! You don’t necessarily have to. They are all here at your disposal, with each one handmade to order. How awesome is that? It’s like receiving your own unique gift, made specifically for you, by some pretty spectacular people. What more could you ask for? Except, perhaps another one…xx

RETAIL THERAPY #01 | POUR PORTER

A one-stop shop, full to the brim with awesome originals – Pour Porter has an ever-growing list of designers housed within their realms. How, how, how did I only find out about them now?

“Pour Porter (“Pour Por-tay”) Shop, sprung from a passion for the exceptional, the independent, and the innovative. We seek to find and offer designers with a vision for the original- designers whose imaginations are their primary creative guides. While we don’t exclusively strive to offer socially responsible, environmentally conscious products, many of the labels we carry are strongly dedicated to these ethical principals.”

I’m in absolute awe of their S/S2012 Lookbook, and if that’s not enough for you, they even have a blog – so you’re sure to be kept up to date with the most recent additions to their store. Honestly, my eyeballs are in heaven! And with that, Pour Porter has just been catapulted to the top of my lust-have list…and yes, I’m talking about the entire store!!!

12 AUGUST 2012

On Friday, I paid a visit to one of my favourite places – Gently Worn. I came home with a stack of unused postcards and old black-and-white photographs, to add to my collection. If you’re ever in the area, be sure to pop in…full of beautiful french vintage lovelies, it’s like a holiday for the soul.

FOLKLORE

Those of you who know me, will also know that I have a slight obsession for anything white, beige or wood. And if these three are combined…well then, goodness gracious me, I’m sold!!!

So here’s a store, a very beautiful store – filled with reclaimed wood, and lots and LOTS of white and beige. Oh be still, my beating heart! Not only in terms of the interior, but the merchandise as well. People of the interwebs, may I introduce to you, Folklore“.

There are too many delightful items to show you, so I’ve gone ahead and chosen a few of my favourites. For the full range, you will have to mosey on down to the their store in London, or if you’re too far away (like I am) just visit their online store…oh credit cards, be scared!
