I don't know if it's just my incessant need to organize things but I always want to group facts and ideas in my brain. Am I the only one?
Anyway what I'm getting at is that I like to come up with equivalent cities. Not making any sense? Well look at it this way: in my mind London is the equivalent New York of England and vice versa.
I always try to find equivalent cities for Cape Town and the one that always seems to stick is San Francisco. I don't know if it's just the generally relaxed atmosphere, it's proximity to the ocean, the amount of hipster/indie people or its mutual acceptance of all creeds of people.
I might be talking absolute crap but this is just the way my brain works. What this whole rant is about is that whenever I see creative projects come out of San Francisco I feel a sort of attachment to it 'cause you know it's my equivalent city. God, I need sleep.
I think this is all why I am so utterly and completely enamoured with the latest lookbook of San Franciscan based boutique, Bell Jar.
