Lykke Wullf

il_fullxfull.657367189_q8bkHave you guys heard of Lykke Wullf? I had not, until recently, through Skunkboy Blog. Well, it was more like in the Summer, but it wasn’t until I started following them on instagram that I really took a look at their garments and became quite fond of the brand. Their styling and aesthetic feels a bit gypsy-boho-punk (that’s a mouthful) at times, but I look at these pieces, and very much see someone like myself being able to wear them with a totally different vibe. I’m especially fond of their denim overalls. They have a distinct 70s feel to them which I obviously like. You’d be hard pressed to find an actual pair of vintage overalls that are not totally unflattering (baggy 90s overalls, i”m looking at you), so it’s nice to come across brands that offer something vintage-inspired that is not already totally over-saturated in the vintage market. And how about that eye print!? Obviously not a new idea, I’ve seen plenty of brands coming out with novelty eye prints, but that doesn’t stop me from liking every single one of them. This print is especially interesting because it reminds me of the pen and sharpie drawings my best friend and I would doodle on our tattered denim jeans and shoes when we were bored in high school. However, it didn’t look nearly as nice as these. I’ve always been a terrible drawer.

You can follow Lykke Wullf on instagram for updates and pretty things almost daily, and they also sell on etsy.



Autumn14THE WHITEPEPPER is one of my favourite brands. Their penchant for creating fun, youthful pieces has consistently been something that speaks to me. The A/W ’14 lookbook brings to mind “exhausted mom”, probably because of the shots of the model serving up white bread, weighing out baking ingredients, serving spaghetti with a sullen look. Its like if an angsty teenager were to become a mother, but way more comical than the real life thing. Now the clothes! I am over the moon for the egg print. I am seeing a lot of novelty print lately, but I don’t think I have seen this yet and I like it. The corduroy dungaree dress is quite possibly my favourite, and is a perfect example of the sort of thing I would like to be wearing this Fall (it scares me that I’m talking about what I’d like to wear in the Fall). We all know I’m a fan of oxford shirts, or well, anything button up really, so I’m especially loving this crisp, simple oxford shirt with one wonderful detail…embroidered beans!! And of course, we can’t talk about the WP without mentioning their signature loose-fitting babydoll dresses. It seems they always come back with some version of that dress, which I think is great, because you could own one with a different print/detail for every day of the week, like some sort of sassy cartoon character that never seems to change clothes and we don’t ever question it. I haven’t been that excited by clothes in a long while, to be perfectly honest. It’s the same thing over and over lately – minimalist, neutrals, shapeless, boring (in my opinion) I hate to say it, but curse you ‘normcore’ – This WP collection made me genuinely excited about clothes again. So thanks The WP, you’re the best.
