Situated in Cavendish Square, Claremont, Callaghan Collezioni is one of the most exceptional fashion stores around. Stocking exquisite designer labels straight off the runway, Callaghan is the one stop shop for the woman who enjoys beautifully crafted garments and impeccable quality.
The fashionably lovely online store ZANDO recently gifted me with a pair of super chic long black boots for winter. I decided that the best way to show off these beauties would be in a look post sharing how I would actually wear them in my day to day life, that is, with a super comfy knit, a sling bag and simple skinny jeans.
This past weekend I went to Kirstenbosch (which is one of my favorite spots in Cape Town) for the morning. We have been trying to go every Saturday for the past three weeks and haven’t managed due to the impromptu rains and wind that Cape Town keeps bringing out. Last Saturday however was a balmy +25 degrees which meant that I not only got to go and see the nine anatomically correct dinosaurs placed among the almost extinct cycads in the garden, but I also got to do an impromptu photo shoot. Four of the featured dinosaurs are indigenous to South Africa and are designed in tin by Zimbabwean artist, David Huni. Be sure to have a look at the photo shoot below and marvel in this beauty that we are so lucky to have in Cape Town.
As many of you may know from my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, Claire’s, one of the world’s leading specialty retailers of fashionable jewellery and accessories for young women, teens, tweens and kids has come to South Africa. Claire’s is the go-to destination for all the latest, hottest trends in jewellery, hair accessories and cosmetics and now their products are available at the new Claire’s store in Cavendish Square.
The moment I put this look together I knew that it was a winner. I have always lusted after a boyfriend jeans but never tried them on for fear that I’d look nothing less than ridiculous, but when I laid eyes on this pair from Forever New, I suddenly had this itch to dress it up and try them on. Plus, the fact that they were rolled up at the bottom and perfectly ripped just added to their allure. This beautiful fur coat paired with the jeans made such a statement on its own that I decided to mute everything down with a plain body suit and nude boots. The hat and neck-pieces were a complete novelty and I felt like it added a bit of sophistication and fun to the outfit.
