I completely understand why everyone is obsessed with the bomber jacket trend. These don’t just look great they are actually pretty warm. I’ve always wanted to get something from Galxboy because of how effortlessly cool the brand is. I also may or may not have wanted to wear their stuff because (Lord knows) I need the street cred. So when I spotted these on their Instagram page I hit the pre-order button quick fast. They come in three colours, navy blue, pink and green. It was love at first site for me with the green but I wish I had the racks to shout “I’ll take ’em all” while I ordered but alas.
An absolute fav of mine this winter, this blanket wrap also comes in green but Mukondi beat me to it. I am not complaining though, I love this warm blue hug of mine. Many of us are guilty of spending money on expensive international brands and not supporting our local designers…well I’m attempting to get rid of nasty habit and create some balance. This item is one of three pieces of clothing that I own from Kendi Sapepa’s brand Barbara Mckenzie. Check her out on her site and see if anything tickles your fancy.
Obviously one cannot get through winter without at least one leather jacket. I’ll go as far as to say one can’t get through life without it. I had been looking around for a biker style jacket since the chill set in and when I saw this Only and Sons baby on Superbalist it was love at first sight. (I could have made a lame pun there about “love at first site” but I have changed.)
I am completely and utterly besotted with this coat! I wish I could where it everywhere I go like one of those toddlers that won’t let go of an item of clothing. I can’t tell you enough about why it’s so right for my life because I wouldn’t know where to start – the colour, the length the fact that it’s sleeveless. Sweet poodles, it’s perfect!
I’m really glad I wore these compromise length shorts when I did because just two days later the weather took a nasty Capetowny turn (No offence CPTeers). It’s chilly in Joho now.
The colder weather is slowly creeping into the city of lights (Johannesburg) and as such I will have to start introducing winter layers over and under my ensembles. Booooo! I’m definitely more of a summer bunny than an ice princess but mother nature won’t be swayed by my preference.
Quick one. Last week I had a really hectic presentation at work and I wasn’t feeling myself so I turned to flowers to pep myself up and own that day. Lately I’m on my •Vuka•Ugheze•Ubangene steez.
Summer is in full swing so for once I don’t have to defend my choice in girly colours. I’m in pink! (Or salmon to the colour snobs) This is my absolute favourite skirt mainly because when I’m in I feel like my mother – feminine and confident.
“I ain’t post my jewellery that’s on purpose”. Kidding, I’ve been meaning to share this post for a while but time hasn’t been on my side. I found this site a little while ago and I have been an addict since. Sundari is an online store that sells low cost jewellery that is always BANG on trend. I bought a few items including a septum ring which is the only item not pictured below. All the items in the picture above cost me less than R300 all together.
This is my first lookpost. Woop!
I was gifted this beautiful bright yellow croptop by my friends at B Mckenzie after my interview with Kendi Sapepa. I’ve been threatening to style it ever since. Since it’s summer, all the invitations to braais, dinner parties and weddings are pouring in. Ok not really, I’m not that popular but it’s still nice to dream. I’ve styled the crop for those three events; shorts and kicks for a braai, high-waisted cigarette pants for the dins and a wax print skirt for the weddings. Enjoy!
