How to wear vintage pieces

Vintage pieces can transform a rather simple outfit and make it more interesting. I prefer to dress everything else down and let the vintage piece stand out. Here I’m wearing classic blue jeans and white t-shirt (cue Gaslight Anthem) with this brown crocodile leather bag. Eeek, not sure how okay it is to wear this type of […]

Denim on denim

Denim on denim – kinda sounds like the beginning of a rap song. Haha. No? Okay… Denim is for everyone, a wardrobe staple that’s lasted the test of time.

It’s rainy, it’s cold, it’s cloudy, it’s Cape Town. So I added a pop of colour to my fight-the-miserable-weather outfit. I’ve always been told that because of my skin tone I can’t wear red clothes, my cheeks end up looking like tomatoes and it’s all down hill from there. But hey I love how much red stands […]

Animal prints

I am crazy about the texture and lines on this top, it reminds me of the patterns on the body of a snake. It’s also velvety but not as thick, so perfect for those sunny days in Cape Town when the wind decides to arrive, but it’s still too hot to wear a jersey. I’ve never been […]
