Alexandra Del Lago – Cape Quarter Lifestyle Centre, Cape Town

May 26, 2011

and so I’m back..

in cyber space..

…yes I was gone.. for long (in cyber terms a few lifetimes…) …been busy rethinking Alexandra Del Lago.. We need to grow into something bigger and better and the quest is consuming me.. think I’m getting closer to opening the next chapter- you’ll hear it here first (I hope… it always amazes me how fast news travels in Cape Town..sometimes others know my business before I do!!…yep..I’ve seen it!)

In the meantime… more images from my style icon..

who does it better then her!? really??

Taylor Tomasi Hill -the one and only … not to be copied (quite impossible)…but to draw on for inspiration and fashion courage 🙂

today I love….

I just love the different textures together and in particular I love the clutch!! Stylestalker knit, Free People shorts, Alexander Wang clutch, Pamela Love and Dannijo rings

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sweater with the pink shorts is just soooo “summer”

Isabel Marant SS2011

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

this is my absolute favorite beauty find of the moment!! I’m usually not really into shampoos and

tend to use whatever I buy from the health shop… but this one…this one is AMAZING! The great thing is that it’s totally natural AND it leaves your hair in the most healthy condition ever!! Unfortunately we don’t get in South Africa…yet…I’m working on it…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Findings showroom in LA… this is where I do most of my buying for Alexandra Del Lago -I love their space! I could live in there! …and they have the best collection of labels-ever!! Lock me in there for a month…I won’t mind!!

Striped sweaters…I’ve always loved them, always will…last year I loved them tiny…this year I love them oversized..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

love her/them always…always the right amount of dishevelment..ok, almost always!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

..the coolest jacket ever!?…

I love leather..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

my current obsession is mexican food…hmmmm thats what I’d want for dinner…-just don’t think there”s a mexican take away here 😦

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and a margarita…thank you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy your weekend!

FOG

 

 

…I left for LA and disappeared into a cloud of FOG…

that’s what it feels like…

I arrived in LA and for 8 days -and nights until 11pm when everything closed- …I shopped LA Market Week as well as ALL the

vaguely interesting stores, department stores and markets in LA…I devoured the fashion, the newness, the cool people who dress soo freely, bohemian and understated…the individuality (not many sheep here!!)…the friendliness and the camaraderie amongst the fashion buyers… I met Raquel Allegra -a personal highlight as I just adore her designs!- and fell in Love with Orduna Designs (www.ordunadesigns.com)…her hand made jewelry is just too beautiful and poetic…I can just see her soul poured in every piece- I love that! …Oh and all the wonderful products that we don’t have here and that I just wish I could stock -I NEED a BIGGER store!!-. On most days I forgot to eat… and ONLY fashion does that to me!…nothing else can hold my attention for so long and intensely to make ME forget about FOOD…

Oh Barneys…Barneys as well as Opening Ceremony and Fred Segal…it was just too much for me!! I could have slept there and had a ball for days on end- without food! …Oh I also fell in love with Alexander Wang! His shoes especially are just magic!!

So now I’m back and I’ve had to digest it all…and most of all recover from a bad bad bad jet lag… dunno why it hit me so bad…probably because I slept so little in LA!

I’ve finally had a chance to spend time on my favorite blogs and scour some new ones for that LA feeling…

 
















Paris Je t’Aime Mon Amour !



Ohhh how I fell in love with MOTHER  jeans!! They are just the way I like them! …supersoft and yet they hold you in and just very flattering in all the best colors!! Can’t wait to get them in!!

 

much love

Look at what I found for you!!

I’ve just come across this really cool jewelery collection from a Brazilian artisan… Fernando Akasaka.. Each piece is handcrafted and is unisex (!! perfect for sharing pieces!) … the collection has a beautiful, raw organic feel to it…with pieces inspired by sea creatures, reptile scales, bird claws and snakes..giving it a unique feel and edge!

what do you think? Isn’t it beautiful!?

I could totally see my favorite Zeflings in this…. (if I could style them;-)

(I am totally in love with this photo!! soo much soo that one of these days I want to blow it up…and you”ll either find it at Alexandra Del Lago…or in my bedroom…)

Le Blob would go soo well with Raquel Allegra…

AND…I’d even mix it with..

some pieces from Dannijo…

..I’ve just received the line sheet from Le Blob…so look out for it… it’s coming soon!!

love

This guy is seriously talented!!

How SEXY is this stool…also by him…

gotta get it!!!
