How divine are these leather shorts? They were found in a vintage flea market.

And this canvas and leather bag is from Paris... we've been coveting one of these for SO long. Where can we find a beautiful canvas and leather postman bag in SA?


Aviators, biker jacket, stonewash skinnies, black pumps and best of all... leopard print scarf!

fab friday

We were taking some pics of each other this morning... and the lovely Nolita decided to join in. Heh heh, she's fabulous.

borrowing from the boys...

Milan Fashion Week s/s 2011 Men's Collections had some great items we wouldn't mind wearing ourselves... 

 Burberry Prorsum sandals and hobo bag 

Burberry Prorsum satchel

Salvatore Ferragamo duffle coat

Salvatore Ferragamo "shopper"

Prada striped jerseys

D&G duffle bag

Okay, so it's mostly bags that we're coveting, but how nice?

i heart your style - ifor1


We're introducing a new section to I Heart Your Outfit called I Heart Your Style, where we'll be chatting to some of SA's most fashionable, stylish people. We couldn't think of a better woman to kick this off than Justine Stafford of ifor1 - if you haven't yet discovered the wonder of her blog, go there now... or after you've read this interview! Justine has a way of making anything that she wears look effortlessly chic, and we find her exceptionally inspiring...

When did you realise you cared about fashion? My mom was always into fashion and I remember as a kid loving watching and helping her get dressed for a night out. She had amazing dresses (off-the-shoulder numbers with triple-tiered skirts!) – many that she made herself – that I wished I was big enough to wear.  
Which designer would you choose to tailor-make a dress for you? Phoebe Philo who is now designing for Celine. I think she is one of the most incredible designers and really understands women’s bodies. Or Karl Lagerfeld – I mean, who could say no?
What was the first super expensive item that you bought? A grey Nina Ricci coat that I bought for a clothing business I was involved in a few years ago and had to keep for myself. I wear it with everything and absolutely adore it. 
 We love the bow detail on the Nina Ricci coat
What bores you? Celebrity style idols.
And what excites you? Individual style choices and confidence.
If you had to put together your dream look, what would you pick? Minimal but impactful: I’m loving the work of Guillame Henry of the French label, Carven: it’s a bit austere, a bit tongue-in-cheek and still very wearable. 
What’s your go-to outfit that you know you’ll always feel great in? A sailor-girl shift from Afraid of Mice, with black tights and heels.  
Super cute shift!
Favourite high street store? Mungo and Jemima in Long Street (074 803 0777).
What’s always in your handbag? Red lipstick, my notebook, phone and camera.
Most exciting thing about SA fashion right now? I think we’re seeing innovative design that is completely our own – our designers are less concerned with designing according to an international model and are rather focused on a uniquely African sensibility. It’s very cool.  
Thanks Justine!

blog crush

We stumbled upon Frenchick today, and she's aMAzing... but yet again, another French blog we don't understand. Perhaps it's time to take some French lessons. In the meantime, we'll lust over her beautiful pictures that she posts. Deeevine.

winter shoes

We love the change of season as it means we get to see an influx of new shoe styles, some more questionable than others... although we won't bash the South Africa boots cos if you've got the guts to go with it, then why not hey?

sharp shoulders

Sometimes we even take pictures of each other ... here's Emily in a gorgeous sharp-shouldered blazer, leggings and metallic brogues. I like!

feel it, it is here!

There is so much excitement in South Africa right now, with the World Cup. Last week we gathered on a field with Table Mountain as our backdrop and blew our vuvuzelas, along with the rest of the country, at midday. We are so proud to be hosting this spectacular event. Good luck Bafana!

cutest world cup supporter ever?

 Chloe... our Sew What model and trendiest kid we've ever met (her mama knows a thing or two about fashion!) When we took the pics of her for Sew What, she was still a bubs, and now she's 2! This is what she wore to her last day of school today to celebrate the World Cup.

stars and stripes

Okay, there are no stars (only stripes) but these two fabulous ladies are from the States. Get it?!
They were super friendly, it's always heartening when you ask someone if you can take their picture and they're so nice about it. We've had someone basically tell us once that's she too "cool" to be photographed. Crazy hey? I'm sure over the next few weeks we're going to be snapping loads of foreigners! So keep coming back to see what we find.

we heart hats...


who says it's winter?

A beautiful, bright floral print skirt fit for spring yet just as suitable for Cape Town winter. I mean, look at the blue sky?! 

sew what

So we've been doing this for a while now, but thought we'd let you all know about it... Sew What is another little business we do on the side where we customise babygros and kiddies vests (we also do undies for adults but couldn't find anyone who'd model for us?!) This is our Sew What model Chloe, how gorge is she? If you want to order, send us a message and we can organise! x
