Being thankful for a bohemian summer

bohemian summer look

I dressed bohemian on a summer day in Joburg…and it rained. Just my luck. I finally take off those sweatpants and put on denim cut offs and then bam my friend/laughing buddy/photographer/model inspiration person and I get stuck in the rain. I guess Joburg wasn’t having my bohemian inspired look. Perhaps it’s more suited to a beach […]

’70s bell sleeves

All I’m trying to do is hide my arms with bell sleeves and pretend I’m in Mad Men Don’t get me wrong the story-line in Mad Men was awesome but the clothes were better. It’s just a pity thatΒ fast fashion has ruined all the good parts of the ’70s style revival. Summer is here with full on […]

Feeling French

red neckerchief scarf

I can eat like 10 croissants & 20 bajillion macaroons, that makes me like half French right? I love the elegant fashion that French women embody. Particularly the emphasis on quality fabrics and long-lasting clothes. I’ve mentioned before that I really believe in purchasing investment pieces, especially leather, hence the name of my blog, but other fabrics […]
