Blazing black


Hi guys
Winter is definitely here, and as days get colder my wardrobe gets better and better. I decided to make a cool little lookbook for you guys again, showcasing some of my favourite (and trending) pieces this season.

Like the lace-up denim belt, black thigh-high peep-toe boots from PLUM Footwear and velvet ‘Kardashian inspired’ boots from Dolce Vita to name a few. This time around I did the shoot with GretheRousseaux Photography,  one of my all time favourite photographers, and of course, as always, Merlize was on hair and makeup. Myself, on styling.

You’ll see I repeated some khaki pieces I used in my previous lookbook again, but as I mentioned before, the coat and boots are edgy, statement pieces and I feel, needs to be in everyone’s wardrobe. And this coat from AnneenHenze Collection in my first look specifically is such a statement piece, which can be worn during a run to the gym or to a very formal event at night. I have worn it, doing both. Haha.

Our location for the shoot was the bespoke Proof Wine Bar, also based in Somerset West. You thought you always needed to drive in to town for a great location? No my friend, we have some beautiful hidden gems right here in Somerset West and Strand. How beautiful?



Anyway, let’s get cracking!
