The Old Zoo

Testing out a possible shoot location for ELLE Magazine… We found this hidden jewel of place near UCT. Apparently it used to be a zoo many years a go. Sure enough there were abandoned cages, cells and even a enormous pit (for the lions perhaps?). Graffiti covered walls, stone paths, weeping willows, flower shrubs, walls of ivy… There was so much beauty to be found and I couldn’t resist having a few photos taken. 

This is what I wore to work and a sheer example of Cape Town’s bipolar weather, I was in a bikini days before.

I’m wearing:
Jersey knit- Topshop
Coat- Vintage
Jeans- Sissy Boy
Boots- ZOOM Footwear
Handbag- Michael Kors
Wintery weather also means you can change up your make up accordingly. Here, I’m wearing a deep plum lip shade by Palladio.
