I can’t wait for my Steve Morris skeleton scarf to arrive! I ordered it from Topshop UK, so I’m still sitting around a week later waiting for it to arrive. Ah the joys of living in South Africa at the ass-end of the world! Sweet anticipation! I had to (albeit willingly) top up my order to £75 to qualify for the free shipping. So along with the scarf I am also waiting for some leather pumps, a cute skirt, some cute makeup, a neat belt and some awesome scallop tights. Thats quite the haul! But I still maintain I did it all for the scarf!

Its on the fairly pricy side for me, but it is after all silk. This is my way of tiding over my obsession until I manage to order a whole set of the Butterbroda prints.

Morris is by far my favourite artist of the moment. Its like discovering someone elsewhere in the world who’s work completely encompasses my ideal aesthetic – in colour, style and subject matter. Thats magic, that is. Thank you Internet!

Heart this editorial of Anne Hathaway shot by Mert & Marcus. I’m so-so on her acting, but man she takes a great picture! I would post the whole series, but do yourself a favour and view them all in their large glory in the Interview gallery. Or stumble across it like I did on TLo, of course supplemented with the always fabulous, on-point observations of my favourite fashion bloggers!

Design

By Little Ghost

Such a great concept for a blog. “A fauxgo (fake logo) is a symbol or other small design created to represent a fictional company or organization that exists only on film.”

I especially love the owl logo for Tyrell Corp from Blade Runner. Amazing things happen when people put in extra attention to detail.

I really loved this article by Sally of Already Pretty. Such a fantastic lesson to remember, and something I intend to incorporate into my daily interactions – especially seeing as I am wholly too sensitive as is. Couple that with assuming people have less than fantastic intentions and you have quite a double whammy of social isolation brewing.

The core of the idea is that human beings are not inherently malicious, conniving creatures and that most of our ideas and actions are well-intentioned. Even many of the ones that SEEM spiteful and rude are often driven by positively-fueled emotions like concern, compassion, and curiosity. Obviously, some people are just assholes. And some non-assholes occasionally make asshole moves. But to me, “assume positive intent” doesn’t mean, “Be a naive fool who trusts everyone to be filled with Mother Teresa-level compassion.” It means, “Try to examine sentiments and actions from multiple perspectives before allowing yourself to feel hurt or offended.”
