Leather, Knit & Bubbly

0
One of my best friends, Jo, came down from Joburg last week. We had such a fun filled girls weekend. These are photos from the first day she was here. We had lunch and bubbly at Knead on Kloof. I had a delicious frankfurter roll with caramelised onions, mmm! Jo and another friend of mine, Ash, both got there hair done at Scar afterwards. I was wearing a cream knit, leather leggings with gold zips, my Jeffrey Campbell boots and a drawstring black bag. I don’t mind mixing gold and silver together at all.

 

I also wore another cool pair of colour reflector sunglasses! I love them!! (I don’t know why I look so serious in the photo below, haha!)
I’m wearing:
Jersey knit- H&M
Leather leggings- Bershka
Boots- Jeffery Campbell
Bag- Platinum in Bangkok
Sunglasses- Ray Ban
Rings- H&M

 

This body shop colour is from their old range. It’s a gorgeous natural lip colour even though it looks a bit dark in this picture.

By the way, I entered Elle’s 2013 Style Reporter in association with Blackberry competition yesterday. It’s a street style based competition. Read about it here. Check out my entry blog, 
 Style Genes , and first post here.

Red velvet cheese cake, my two favourite cakes in one, is this possible? A huge piece of this and a cappuccino for R20?! YESSS, at Zabad at the Cape Quarter (where Lazari used to be)! Between 2pm and 4pm you can indulge in a piece of a cake of your choice as well as a cappuccino for this crazy price. Unfortunately, I was told the special is until the end of May only, however if I discover it will continue I will be sure to let you know. Cape Town winter specials have begun…

Brown tote styled bag- Zara
Gold band with pearl ring- vintage
Gold necklace- Forever 21 
Khaki jacket- Mr Price
Beige top- Stradivarius
White skinnies- Sissy Boy
Nude Lita boots with silver studs- Jeffrey Campbell

Today’s Outfit

I haven’t been able to post many outfit pics, but today is a special day because my baby sis got moved from ICU to general ward! Wooohoooo!! She is recovering so well, tough little cookie she is. 

Here’s what my outfit today looked like… The photos were taken by the Twelve Apostles (scenic route on the way to Camps Bay). I was wearing a type of military combat jacket from Zara, then just a plain black top, jeans and snood, a black Aldo chain bag and my Jeffrey Campbell studded Lita boots! I’m loving  military inspired  clothing at the moment – especially  khaki green I also wore a ring I found at Chatuchak market in Bangkok – it’s a unicorn – so obviously I had to buy it (even if my jewellery designer friend tells me it’s the ugliest thing she’s seen! Haha!)

Goodnight Cape Town. I’m missing Bangkok today. I got an email from my agent there telling me they clients requested me for an Axe Deodorant commercial for 150 000 BAHT (R50 000), damn. The role sounds fun to: “a soldier girl who has to act out in a romantic scene (Show expression, passionate when you can smell the guy’s scent)”. I replied saying that if they can guarantee the role I’ll be on the next plane… Haha, nice try Cleo!
