Good Genes, Great Jeans Denim, duh.


While planning Cosmo’s denim issue – our June issue – thought it would be suitable to dabble in denim myself.

Oh, how I love the new season’s denim details and trends.

Here, I wear two of them:

#1 Embroidered Denim – I purchased these jeans in Barcelona last year and simultaneously popped both my ‘mom jeans’ and ’embroidered jeans’ “cherry”. I still feel weird wearing them without heels due to their mom silhouette but who cares about flats when you have these deep burgundy velvet heels.

#2 Patchwork Denim – Towards the end of last year I was invited to customise a Levis trucker denim jacket by using their new Tailor Shop service at the V&A Waterfront. It’s pretty damn cool – you can take any of your denims to the store and, with help of their resident ‘tailor’, customise them using badges, studs, rip effects and more.


I’m wearing:

‘Ready’ tee and velvet heels – Mango

Embroidered jeans – Pull & Bear *Buy cute ones here & here.

Trucker denim jacket (worn at end) – Levis

Nerd glasses – MRP *Buy cute ones here.


I’m excited to be attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town next week! Stay posted for more.
