My Dream Coat This Winter

DSC_4853 DSC_4812

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!

Holding On To Summer

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

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.

Flowers At Work

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.

ComPleat


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.

Jewellery x Sundari

unnamed unnamed-1

“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.

Cream Of The Crop x B Mckenzie

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

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!

Who Is Barbara Mckenzie?

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Well to answer the question in a literal manner, Barbara Mckenzie is the brainchild of Kendi Sapepa. A young partly Mthatha partly Margate raised Joburg resident and fashion designer. However the point of this post is not answer the question  literally but rather laterally in this kick-ass interview below. Before we start, I’d like to paint a vivid picture for you to store in your mind while you read the interview: There was infusion tea, cake, scintillating conversation and the upper-eschelonesque ambience of Life Grande Cafe, Hyde Park (Whom I’d like to give a shout out for great service and tea and cake!) – a combination only surpassed by Kendi’s designs. With that picture in mind, see the Q&A below 🙂

With the Loeries Awards having moved from Cape Town to Durban I was worried mine and Mukondi’s tradition of shopping for the awards outfits in the host town would have to die this year.  I’m not familiar with Durban’s fashion scene so I was a tad uncomfortable. Enter Vim and Verve Collection; a quaint store in the heart of Durban that houses local designers, vintage and new, as well as other nice-finds from around SA.
