Mango Winter 2015

May 19, 2015

Angie Mango  (14 of 46)

The other day I got to go into Mango to check out their latest trends and I got to take home a couple of items for myself. They have such awesome pieces to choose from that I found myself going round and round in circles looking at everything twice, because I couldn’t make up my mind on what I wanted.

They have all the latest trends from 70’s inspired garments, to tartan, to military, to oversized coats and more. I picked a few things and then Anna-Belle and I staged a shoot in a small pine forrest on Sloan Street in Fourways. I thought it would be cool to show you guys what I got and then ask you if you want any of them? Yip, I have a R1000 Mango gift voucher to GIVEAWAY to one of you guys, so you too can go in-store and buy something that takes your fancy.

I came across this local label called Titch that is based in Cape Town. They make really nice leather bags and clutches and you can see just by looking at their photos that their products are soft and lush. I really like their stuff, so I thought I would share it with you guys, just in case you were looking for a new handbag, plus it’s all local and that’s the only way to go! How great is their Backpack Sling?

March 25, 2015


I know that is this going back quite a few years, but I don’t care. These dresses that formed part of the Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture collection are so damn beautiful that I wanted to post about them again here in 2015.

Every single gown looks like it would fit perfectly into a period piece drama about the worlds most beautiful vampires, do you know what I mean?

Self Portrait Clothing

March 11, 2015


Today online I saw a Tweet about whether or not Gavin Rajah crossed a line when it comes to fashion inspiration vs. copying. He has just shown at Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg and his collection and one dress in particular bore a striking resemblance to a dress made by UK designer Han Chong, who is the creative director at Self Portrait. So I went and had a look at said label and instantly forgot about the debate (although my opinion is that Gavin Rajah definitely copied the dress) and instead was mesmerised by Self Portrait’s beautiful creations.

The amount of detail and craftsmanship that has gone into every one of these pieces is amazing. These dresses are so romantic and whimsical, I can only imagine how hard it would be to just pick one, not that I’m going to get to pick any, but that is besides the point.
