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!

song, song of the south

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the launch of the talented, home-grown jewelry designer Henriette Botha‘s latest collection, “South”. Keeping true to her style Henriette has created a beautiful range of eclectic and striking pieces, with inspiration drawn from the Southern parts of different continents.

The event was hosted by Jenna McArthur PR and was beautiful as always. The most fabulous part of the evening was the chance to get a quick manicure by the amazing FoxBox mobile nail service! Just what I needed. When you’re as busy as I am you don’t have time to do your nails, so the opportunity to have someone else put some paint on was super exciting.

We left the event with beautiful manicures, the most exquisite mini cakes, as well as a personal gift from Henriette – a bracelet from the South collection.

More vintage today… Picked up this awesome sweater for 6 rand over the weekend. Seriously, I don’t know how someone could throw this out!! Haha… Maybe it’s just me but I think it’s great… Shoulder pads, lace details, oversized… All the vintage elements I love. And it looks so cute with a little white blouse underneath… White collars under knits are one of my weaknesses.

I am practically living in these high-waisted jeans from Asos… I really think I should go ahead an order them in another colour ’cause I am wearing these too much! But they are so nice. Check them out here.

Kept the accessories simple… My John Lennon sunnies are featured as usual – I love them. And of course wore my creepers to toughen up the look a bit. The end result had a kind of grunge preppy feel.

Thrifting makes me happy 🙂 Haha it also inspires me greatly (probably why I’ve been posting so much lately!).

This beautiful, over-sized, “granny-top” is possibly one of the best things I’ve ever found thrifting. It’s just so damn perfect. When I go looking for vintage stuff the most important aspects I examine in a piece are fabric (needs to be a good quality – you don’t want the old thing to fall apart in the first wash!) and fit (must be too big for an extra grunge feel). This shirt checks both of those boxes. Check out Asos Marketplace for some awesome vintage button-ups.

High-waisted shorts and a cute crop top are definitely essentials for summer. These little denims were purchased here on Ebay. You can find a similar top here. My gorgeous platform sandals are from Mr Price and the John Lennon sunnies are available at Topshop.

Hope you guys love the look!
