One Cape Please

Winter is approaching and I am scared of how lacking my Winter wardrobe is. This is why I am on the lookout for some Winter gear. I definitely want to add a cape to my Winter collection. Now, I wonder if any of the South African shops will stock them.

Beautiful Vintage dress, come unto me

I’ve been ogling so many vintage dresses on Etsy. I definitely want a 50s full skirted dress, but I have no idea where I’d wear it to. I only know that I would feel very special and lady-like in a dress that comes from that era. The possibility of who wore the dress and what happened when she wore it is such a romantic concept. Wearing vintage is definitely a whole other experience than wearing something new.

Here are some of my favourite dresses found on Etsy:

Leather Jacket Obsession

I’ve been bookmarking my favourite looks on street style blogs for the past couple of weeks and I noticed a pattern. Most of the looks contain leather jackets! If I haven’t said this before on this blog then I am saying it now, I love leather! This pattern proves it. We can see from these looks that a little biker’s jacket looks great with various feminine looks. It definitely adds some edge to an outfit and makes it more noticeable. I don’t think there is a substitute for real leather. The best thing about it is that it’s a lifetime investment.

Even though Spring is here in South Africa, I don’t think we need to say goodbye to leather jackets just yet. I think they’re an easy way to keep warm on a the chillier Spring or even Summer nights. I’ve owned many leather jackets and found that I could wear them all year. These little jackets look especially good with floral dresses which are undoubtedly very popular already in South Africa.
