New Shoe Smell

0

Who doesn’t love that smell of a pair of brand new shoes? Every fellow shoe-obsessed will know exactly what I’m talking about.

I’m loving the shoes on Superbalist at the moment, they have some amazing winter buys!

Here’s My Pick of My Five Favourites:

-Chunky Heels Boots:

Recently, I love a slight pointed shape when it comes to ankle boots. This chic black pair of leather boots are versatile and will look great with pretty much any outfit.

-Metallic Sneakers:

I love these classic Superga sneakers in this modern metallic shade. Metallic sneakers can act as a neutral which means they can be paired with just about any look.

-Thigh High Boots:

How gorge are these black mock suede thigh high boots? I would wear them with skinny jeans and a chunky knit.Boots

-Lace-up Boots:

Not only are lace ups super on point but these block heeled babies add extra comfort so you won’t be dying a slow death in your heels! Perfect for work and play.

-Winter Heels:

These heels are everything. And can you believe they’re R349? I love their babydoll feel with the peep toe and chunky heel.

SA Jewellery Brand Voted Vogue’s Top Ten

0

Super proud of South African brand Pichulik, that’s been hailed as one of the top 10 jewellery labels in the world to watch by Vogue Italia.

I think the brand is so successful because it’s instantly recognisable, due to it’s signature material – rope, and is the perfect balance between African craft and elegant style.

Currently on my wishlist? These Pichulik mix and match earrings. You get two gold hoops and five detachable parts to play with.

Here’s a photo of me wearing my favourite Pichulik bangle at SA Menswear Fashion Week earlier this year.

The Sleeveless Blazer

0
My recent purchase and obsession: this navy sleeveless blazer / waistcoat with sheer back from Zara. It’s super versatile and I love that its tailored yet you can just kind of throw it on. I’ve started seeing them pop into stores slowly such as Mango and Zara. This time I decided to layer it: base- grey shirt, middle- black three quarter sleeved top and lastly- sleeveless blazer. I also wore it with white skinny jeans the other day which I thought gave it a fresh look.
I’m wearing:
Grey tee- Zara
Black top- Zara
Sleeveless blazer- Zara
Jeans- Stradivarius
Grey boots- Country Road
Handbag- H&M
Necklace- Tally Weijl
Below I’ve illustrated a little ‘how to wear‘ guide on the sleeveless blazer. 
 
*For an evening outfit or smart occasion you can wear it with a black vest/crop top underneath, heels and statement bag or clutch. 
*For a more casual day look you can layer like I did or simply wear it with a slouchy tee or knit underneath. 
*For work or for a more corporate and tailored look pair it with black tailored pants.
