Some puffy sleeves and tan sandals09. December 2013
The other day Grazia magazine visited me at my house. They came to take pictures of what I would wear to a Christmas party that I would host. Now, those of you that know me well, know that I’m not a very dressy-up kind of person. I don’t wear heels and I like to feel comfortable and myself at all times and so I opted for a long black skirt, my new top from Country Road, which I love because the shoulders are puffy and I flipping love puffy shoulders (don’t ask me why). I also decided to wear 3 of my favourite local designers, Jane Sews shoes, a bracelet from Skermunkil and a necklace from Dear Rae.
So I thought I would show you guys the insert (thanks Grazia) and show you my nice new top and some nice new sandals I picked up at Mr Price, incase you were looking for puffy sleeves and some new sandals xx
I also found another nice pair of sandals at Mr Price this weekend.
So it is nearly Christmas time, it’s nearly time for all of us (hopefully most of us) to go on holiday and forget about all work related responsibilities and just eat as much food as humanly possible. Well, this is at least what I plan on doing in the the next couple of weeks, for a couple of weeks.
But before I stock up on elasticated waist pants for the holidays, I thought I would host one final bonanza of a giveaway on my blog just to say thanks to all the awesome support that you have shown this Lucky Pony over the years AND to showcase some of my most favourite favourite LOCAL designers, whose stuff I think is beyond awesome and would all be very welcome in my present stash.
I have asked 10 of them to please add to my gift pile for you guys and they’re all onboard, which makes me very happy. So this giveaway is going to be one I’m hoping none of you will want to miss out on. All the gifts are top quality made from genuine leather, sterling silver, rolled gold, 100% cotton and all natural ingredients. I have also included all the links to the designer’s online stores so that, hopefully I have made Christmas shopping a little easier for some of you this year.
And I’m making it super easy to enter and it’s absolutely open to everyone, local and international, so enter away!
How to enter:
1. Leave me a simple comment telling me who your favourite designer is (comments section is right at the bottom of the post, after the tags).
3. Tweet / facebook / blog about this competition for EXTRA entries (I have had loads of past winners winning this way, so it’s worth the effort). If you do tweet, please tag me @miss_luckypony and use this #LuckyBonanza.
4. If you do tweet / facebook/ blog about it please let me know in your original comment, so that I can give you a few extra entries.
5. Entries close on the 20th of December 2013 at 1pm. I will choose winners later that day. Good luck.
This is how it will work:
I’m going to pick THREE winners and each person will get a #LuckyBonanza gift pack (see below), I’m going to let the 1st winner choose which one they want and then the second place winner can choose their pack and then the 3rd person gets the one that’s left, but all the packs are AMAZING, so I don’t think it’s going to matter which one you get.
And now without further a due I’d like to introduce you to all the designers and their amazing goods, which could be yours!
Link to Dark Horse – This cool little company has all sorts of awesome locally designed and produced leather goods, for men and woman. They’re also a design house, so if you’re looking for very cool original furniture and home ware, they are your guys. Happy shopping.
Link to Jane Sews – Jane Sews only makes super pretty things, nothing more and nothing less. Her clothing is dainty, considered and well crafted and her leather shoe collection is beyond amazing – happy shopping.
Link for Dear Rae – Dear Rae makes jewellery that is so fine and pretty, she has so many pieces that I would kill for. Her collection includes awesome affordable pieces and awesome luxurious ones too (diamonds and all), which I’m trying very hard to stay away from aaaaaa – happy shopping.
Link for Chapel – Chapel backpacks are still one of my most favourite things around. I can’t believe I don’t own one, I have to fix that! Their stuff is locally produced and designed and they have all sorts of canvas and leather bags to choose from – happy shopping.

Mr Price Summer 2014 – fun times.02. December 2013
Here are a few pics I snapped of some Mr Price’s looks for 2014. They’re so care-free and fun and I love how they’ve played with material and volume and they haven’t taken themselves too seriously. Love all the lengths too, can’t wait to see them in-store.
They haven’t forgotten you boys either, there are some cool prints coming out and I’m quite jealous that they’ve made matching top and pants suits for you, too awesome.
Mr Price Summer – wow!02. December 2013
Last Thursday myself and Emma along with a bunch of other very cool bloggers were flown out to Cape Town’s Mr Price Summer Party #MRPMYSUMMER, which took place in the most beautiful garden in Newlands. From the second you walked in you could see just how much effort went into making it an event that like no other. I felt like I was stepping onto Pinterest land, I was seriously blown away – there was a flower crown station, where I found out that I’m not that bad at making flower crowns (fancy that), there was a beauty bar where you could have your nails done and your hair plaited. There were 2 pop-up shops were we could buy ourselves our very own Henry Holland dress, before anyone else, Henry was also there by the way, him and Pixie Geldof (she has some impressive looking bodyguards).
There was all sorts of delicious foods and baked goods, I pretty much tried everything! There was a soft-serve machine, watermelon on sticks, , macaroons, Rolo tarts (I’m still dreaming about those). There was a cocktail bar, a champaign bar and a coffee bar, a burger bar and they were all set up under strings and strings of fairy lights and bunting, which we all danced/slashed ATE MORE under later that night.
I had such an awesome day, Mr Price presented their new Henry Holland line to us in a way I’ll never forget, it was fun and fresh and I wish wish wish there were more launches like this out there, I would be so happy and probably very fat!
We also got to a sneak peak at Mr P’s new Summer 2014 collection – looks like it’s going to be too much fun, it’ssuper playful and i’m so happy to see some maxi and midi skirts in there, me and mini skirts don’t gel – check out my next post for a look see.
Misha face, hello.
Thank you Mr Price. You guys rule.
