Missoni, Suno, Burberry and many others have been inspired by the tribal print (if you are following me religiously, you'd know I blogged about this before). Summer is just around the corner and I would love to wear these African/tribal prints. It definitely is invigorating to me as it has urged me to embrace my African heritage even further. The up side of being South African, is that we have many African markets, these are all on our doorstep, how good is that? Wearing this trend would definitely add some more spice to my African summer.
I think I might have a problem, I really do have a girl crush. I've seen this photo of Ulyana many, many times now but I couldn't help myself. That skirt is beyond beautiful! Have a lovely Wednesday. x

I'm inlove with Sven Jacobsen and his photography. It's so natural, unrehearsed, down to earth and absolutely brilliant.
I love Egyptian history so inevitably I was pleasantly surprised to see Mara Hoffman's Resort 2012 collection. I love the print on this dress, to look at the rest of this amazing collection go here.

I went to the Bastille festival in Franschoek yesterday. It had good food and wine as well as stylishly delicious men who pranced around in their gloriously high quality attire. Anyway, I love this image, why? because it has three different looks and my current obsession: Ulyana Sergeenko. Happy Sunday! x

Romantic with fine details, Abigail Betz stood out from the rest as she didn't use lots of colour only using black, white and pale pink. It's classic and beautiful. She was definitely one of my favourites (as well as Tart), if you want to check out the other collections at CTFW go here.

So, it was Cape Town Fashion Week and I was s totally bummed I couldn't go! Prior arrangements didnt allow me to but I have been checking out AFI and got to see some of the collections, seems like there was alot of colour! Tomorrow, I'll share the talent with you, the followers. I've been getting lots of views, so merci to all of you.Anway, speaking of colour, Josh Goot's multicoloured geometric dress is rocking my world.
