On Wednesday I attended the launch of Scotch & Soda’s AW 15 collection, and in the words of my dear colleague “It was so swanky!”

Our glasses were spilling over with champagne and G&Ts and vodka, we indulged our taste buds with some exquisite Dutch hors d’oeuvres served by handsome models in button-ups, all the while treating our eyes to some of the best AW 15 pieces I have seen thus far. I feel a very strong urge to whip out my credit card.

The store boasted some beautiful displays and the overall image of the range was one of subtle luxury and youthful innovation within the key trends for AW 15.
The range was brought to life by the pops of this year’s winter colours – blue-grey, golden-yellow, marsala, classic blue and olive green.
Scotch & Soda are keeping the looks luxe with embellishments like studs and beads, and with techniques like quilting and pin-tucking.

Overall, a wonderful event and an even better collection. So excited to go shopping this weekend! (Couldn’t resist the credit card urge :/)

Check out the official Scotch & Soda site here. Thank you so much to the PR company Styling Concepts for hosting this great launch, and of course to GLAMOUR Magazine for taking me with!

you know i believe

Had a day off work today (lucky me!) so I got to do a spot of shopping… and for some reason I was in a serious black and white mood! Found some cool pieces that inspired me to do a post on my favourite combo; black, white and denim. It’s a super easy look to pull off and has a nice edginess that I love. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

cut offs

This is definitely one of my favourite classic looks – biker jacket, crop top, denim cut offs and an exaggerated necklace. Throw this on with some sheer stockings and creepers and you can go anywhere. This amazing jacket was from Topshop a while ago, check out their similar one here. I brought the shorts here on Ebay. The crop top is from Cotton On, and oh my word it is perf!

leather

As you can tell I really like leather… lol. This skirt is from Cotton On and it’s actually really soft and comfortable which I like! The sheer button-up is from New Look and the acid-wash vest is from Mr Price.

skater

I cannot get over this corset from Asos and how wonderful it is… I literally wanna wear it all the time! I love tops with extremely low-cut arm holes like this one from Mr Price. They look great with a little lace bralet underneath too. This skater skirt is also from Cotton On. It’s quite a bit shorter than it looks so I’m keen to wear it with some stockings and chunky boots for cooler days.

So which look do you like best? Any other cool things you like to do with denim, white and black?

its like wishing for rain

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t posted in so long… it was a hectic week and I was away and all that… I have however been regularly posting on Instagram so if you haven’t already found me there, its @danicafaye.

So today I’m just gonna show you guys some pics of two outfits I wore this weekend while I was away… Totally love them! Some really great pieces… Let me know what you think!

Saturday’s Outfit:

outfit 1

That beautiful studded corset is from Asos. I’m absolutely in love with it! The back is also really cool – its got cutouts. And don’t you just love the colour of the sheer top? ❤

Sunday’s Outfit:

outfit 2

I was flying home so I had to wear something really comfortable – and this dungaree dress from Factorie is just that! Dungarees and crop tops are one of my obsessions!

snakey

bracelets

Also wanted to share some of the cute bracelets I found while I was away… I love these so much I’m even sleeping in them! 😉

More to come this week!

spin me round again

It feels like so long since my last post but its only been four days! I’ve been very preoccupied (and uninspired) lately… But today I found this cute, nude, high-waisted midi skirt on sale and it made me excited! There are so many ways to wear a great skirt like this, but here are three looks that I quickly threw together. You can find a similar skirt here.

Get a romantic feel with a strapless top, sandals and a floppy hat

Edge up the feminine skirt with a body suit, an over-sized vest and creepers

a little bit of summer

I drove my granny to the mall today (taking any chance I get to practice my driving so I can pass the stupid test!) and while she was inside, I had a teensy bit of time to do some pre-summer shopping. Even though its freezing cold today and I didn’t really feel like trying anything on, I managed to find a few things that I know I’m gonna use to death once the weather starts heating up… Check them out! And feel free to leave comments – I’d love to know what you are doing to prep your summer wardrobe!

I totally love anything acid-washed, and a cool vest is the perfect summer alternative to a denim jacket. Use it to make a feminine dress a bit more edgy. Get it here.

So fashionable and so pretty! Make sure you have a floppy felt hat in your summer cupboard. Similar here.

I don't normally buy cheap nail polish but this one was in the exact colour I've been looking for! You can pick it up from Dischem for only R20!

vintage renewal

vintagerenewal

So for my first actual fashion post I thought I’d share one of my biggest clothing obsessions – vintage! I absolutely love anything preloved. Sometimes I find things that are just buy and wear (with a wash in between) but other times I like to tweak my finds a little bit. I brought this cute-ish pair of stone dungarees from Asos Marketplace. When they arrived I wasn’t crazy about the colour or fit. So I made it into a dungaree dress and dyed it this great denim colour that goes with everything. Super on trend and easy to do! Love it with a graphic tee!
