Land of Nams: living in Johannesburg, exploring the world, documenting the things I love

We have visitors throughout the winter (summer) coming from the States and one of them will have the duty to mule me a new bag that I have decided I surely deserve. I had to go to Pretoria for work and on the train ride I couldn’t think of anything to sketch on my iPad (since I got a new stylus to use with Paper by 53)  so I sketched the bags I’m deciding between.  I’m leaning towards the Chloé. I also experimented with the bunting, fabric strip, and circle badge free PNG downloads from Pugly Pixel to make my drawings and blog a little more pleasing to the eye. I’m pleased with the results, considering it was quite a rough attempt. I would like to get into some amateur graphic design. I think it’s time I bit the bullet and bought Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Fashion Friday: Second Attitude Vintage

I was on the hunt for an inexpensive, small tan leather bag to lug around this town. I found it at Second Attitude Vintage in Parkhurst. Well okay, I found it at their Sunday Stall at Arts on Main. Owned by an adorable Parisienne named Lolo and her Xhosa husband named Quiet. Their store has been open a year already. Makes me feel like I should get my act together.

Anyway, I got me a new bag that fits my beloved iPad plus essentials and is omgadorbs for 900 rands. Yay!
