[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Mr Cleo Droomer’s latest Project with Mr Price hit stores today. Thankfully, all the items are also stocked on Mr Price’s online store (HERE) - which means I could order one of each of these beauties without leaving my desk. Cannot wait to wear them all!
[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] What’s better than Biggie’s lyrics from my favourite song from his catalogue, ‘Juicy’? Err… His lyrics on a sweatshirt, maybe?!
This lovely is by local label 2BOP and is available at Baseline Studio, Poppa Trunks and Shelflife in Cape Town and Tick Tick Bam Bam in Jozi and Black Concepts in PE.

It’s no secret that I adore Amber Jones. She’s all kinds of awesome. So I’m really excited to announce that her range with Mr Price - called The Best is Yet to Come - hits stores on 25th JULY! Yes, on Monday! Pay day! Holla!
Amber sat down with ELLE South Africa’s Jenna McArthur to chat about the range and here’s some of what she had to say:
We love the range, how would you describe it?
Wow. Hard one. A rather-odd-in-a-good-way schoolgirl who often wears her dad’s clothes from the seventies…
Tell us about the colours and fabrics used?
I was having a love affair with texture when I designed it so I chose chunky knits, linen suitings, printed woven viscose and faux fur for warmth and added denim and cotton twills for contrast. The colour palette is very earthy, with splashes of navy and warm burnt oranges.
What sets this range apart from others?
Little details like elbow patches, paper-bag waist detail, statement buttons and raw reversed hems. I really wanted the girl who wears these clothes to feel we cared about how she felt in them.
Everything in this range is completely wantable and the price point makes it imminently gettable. Look how cute:
On my shopping list:
Actually, who am I kidding? Something tells me I’m going to buy more than that :) Congratulations, Amber!
[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Colourful skinnies! We’re preparing for Spring’s colour blocking trend. These yummy jeans are from Jay Jays and they retail for R249.99 each. Loving it!
[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Cute jersey + leather skirt from Maria McCloy. Love it, love it, love it. Forgive the shockingly bad pics, but the clothes are excellent and bring me much joy.
So. I didn’t go to the Met. I don’t really do horsey events and the thought of going to CPT to party with half of social JHB doesn’t really appeal to me (no offense). Anyways. Instead, I partied in Jozi and, on Saturday afternoon,
played fashion police watched the action unfold on Twitter from the comfort of my couch. While dressed in a fetching black velour tracksuit and cartoon socks.
But, given that this is the age of the interwebs, pictures of the fab and not so fab are already everywhere. Here’s a selection of pics courtesy of Sowetan.
I’m going to keep the sartorial snipes to myself because, frankly, fashion is a personal thing and I’m sure all the Met attendees thought they looked super fab when they left their homes or hotel rooms on Saturday afternoon.
Here’s what a few fine folk wore on Saturday:
Can we please have numerous moments for this picture? My BFF Mokgadi looking gorge in a David Tlale number. Only Somizi could pull off that Tlale look and Your Girl B represented in a Gert Johan showstopper.
Phat Joe and Lelo Boyana of Just Curious fame. Who could blame him for looking a bit overwhelmed. I mean, really, look at Lelo’s body! I die deaths .. Anyways, let’s move on to more important matters: Lelo’s dress. It’s another Gert Johan triumph and there’s nothing I don’t love about it. My fashion friend Dumi Gwebu seemed undecided about the bird on the shoulder, but that’s actually what sold me on it. This, my dear people, is what happens when a designer gets the theatrical look right. And thank you, dear Lelo for keeping the styling and make up simple.
Somizi in his Tlale and the evergreen (I mean, can people just age already? I shudder to think what I’m gonna look like in my 30s with all these people setting the bar so high!) Uyanda Mbuli in DFC (I’m assuming), took home the Best Themed Couple award. Well deserved. Thank you guys for putting some effort into your look and for setting a standard. Uyanda, please wear red more often, you look fab!
Loving Miss SA Bokang’s origami hat/ fascinator thing.
The gorgeous Thembi Seete kept it simple. Over at Just Curious they’re asking who ran those shoes better: Bonang or Thembi.
The oh-so-hot Stoan, his friend #SpeedysTowel and the towel’s date, Speedy.
New Idols judge Unathi jumps rope.
I loved this shoot in February 2011’s TRUE LOVE magazine so much, I just had to share it. Actress/ general creative person Sthandiwe Kgoroge styles six of South Africa’s most talented entertainment personalities playing some of the games we’ll all remember from childhood. So cute, so quirky, so perfect.
Wanda and Sonia just chilling.
Mmabatho and Moshidi looking hella fab.
Wanda and the ever gorgeous Terry Pheto.
MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY: Furry leopard print bag, Jo Borkett.
