Hair: Tracey Thys Serfontein Star Style Make Up by Flawless Faces By TK
I had a long two weeks of research finding these designers, some of the pieces are from 2014 collections. I love wearing local but I obsess about wearing a line first lol I blame my parents.
All of the pieces' quality is so flawless it makes me super proudly South African and happy I can share with you.
So lets talk each look
Look 1: Top & Jeans Cloak & Dagger Christal K Sleveless hooded Trench Shoes Dolce Vita
I love torn jeans in fact I still wear the first pair of jeans I bought and fall in love ll over every time it gets a new tear. I also like it when the rips are symmetrical and run up my leg as it gives the illusion of length. I am tiny so this is important to me.
The crisscross styled tops make my nineties heart happy and I always feel you can get away with short sleeves in winter fabrics in Autumn so loved this knitted feel.
I fell in love the moment I saw Christal's technicolour coat on Instagram I had to have it I added some images where you can see the details inside. The inner fabric is textured and has rope detail so matches the top perfectly.
I am currently in love with Dolce Vita the quality styles and brand in general. The service also matches the quality I explained I needed heels for this shoot and the express overnight couried it to me, now that is how to make a girl feel special.
Look 2: Suede Top & Leggings By Brett Robson. Double Buckle Rodeo Belt Brett Robson Reversable Trench Coat by Aimmea Boots Dolce Vita
I am a big Brett Robson fan in general. I knew when she decided to finally launch the line it would be SA greatness. Brett is in the industry and has been flying all over the world sourcing fabrics and trimmings for bigger brands so she KNOWS her fabric and it shows. I am still living in my season one threads and they are flawless.
Like I said I love doing summer looks in winter fabrics for Autumn especially because Cape Town has funny weather she can be cool then hot every 5 min lol.
I paired the Brett Robson suede top from last season with her new range suede velvet leggings and hid the waist line with her rodeo belt to convert it into a bodysuit.
I then threw over this AMAZING Aimmea reversable trench. For my ladies who love beige hues it is perfect to pair with anything and the cream side is simply luxurious. I am a big fan of weight I love heavy quality pieces and this coat is perfection.
Once again I am in Dolce Vita rocking their midi blush tasseled boot.
Look 3: Mesh Top Portobello Road Daisy Bra Brett Robson Hat Cloak & Dagger Tweed Emebellished Jacket Sanctuarii By Kelly Schlemmer Feather Skirt ODON By Donelle Lace Wig Isis Hair Africa Dolce Vita Brogues
I love a good mesh top and I actually struggle to find plain long sleeve ones. So when I walked into Portobello Road and saw this one I had to have it. It also has palm tree detailing over the breast area.
Unfortunately only boys can show their nips (#FREETHENIP) (I fundementally hate that we HAVE to wear a bra under sheer tops although to me it sometimes spoil its, this is why I love Rihana she understands this and frees her nip anyway)
Fortunately this sheer and Daisy detailed bra by Brett Robson makes it worth it and I am in love with it. In fact it is featured in my website canvas this month.
I met Kelly Schlemmer at a talk I did at Fedisa and we got along immediately, she style assisted me on this shoot. She hand made this amazing jacket with a tweed feel incredibly detailed beaded features. I also loved the high slit long sleeve it made me feel very coco.
I found Donelle on instagram after falling in love with the dress she presented at the Bokkeh Film festival and this skirt is part of the range, we managed to get to Cape Town from Oudtsoorn just before we shot this look. I love feathered skirts but sometimes am not fond of the type of feather or the finishing in this ODON skirt I loved both.
I have been missing my long black hair so got this amazing Isis Hair Africa lace wig. I have been wearing wigs for a good 15 years but their quality is amazing and no one realises I am wearing a wig. It is an amazing way to completely transform your look commitment free.
Keeping within my blush and cream hues I ended the look with a pair of detailed Dolce Vita Blush brogues.
Look 4: Chocker & Suit Outlined by Paige Martins Heels Dolce Vita
It is not every day when you find a line that matches your personal style as much as Outlined By Paige Martins does mine. The sexy sillulets bring out my sensuality and the structured taylored lines make me feel Bossy. I Love.
This custom tailored suit is amazing and I love the metal ring detailing which is actually the jackets button.
I paired it with one of her chokers and Navy Blue Dolce Vita Pointies.
Look 5: Brett Robson Culottes Maxi.B Lace Bodysuit Hat Cloak And Dagger Neckpiece Sticky Hodge Podge Dolce Vita Fringe Heels
I love these culottes especially the length and the way they widen at the bottom. It made me feel tall and confident and the fabric makes it hang and drape perfectly.
I paired it with a lace bodysuit with high neck by Maxi.B of YDE. I love the design if the lace it is also very comfortable and soft.
I added some colour with a statement neckpiece by Sticky Hodge Podge. A brand I love as much as I do the designer Siya Mahomba who make each piece by hand. This particular piece is ping pong balls covered in printed fabric, so it is big but super light.
These Dolce Vita pointy fringe heels is one of my favorite pairs, I love how high u my ankle they go and the velvety fabric.
I hope you enjoyed week 1 we have 5 more looks to go.
