October Weekend

I dislike (because hate is such a strong word) when I open a draft of a post and the text appears to be missing. This could also be because I never wrote anything to begin with...
This passed weekend I had so much fun dressing up for all the excursions I thought it fit to post a couple of pics that I featured in ;)

Friday night we went to the Puma Social Club in Braamfontein. @markstry told me I looked "too glam" when he saw me - which deeply irritated me. I am never dressed "too glam" that is just how I look and dress! A warning to everyone reading this, I do not take such comments lying down. I rocked a little fringe ombre dress with my all-time favourite denim jacket and some cute tan boots. I felt it was quite a boho look finished off with a vintage choker that my mom had at my age and a red lip. Everybody loves a red lip. 

Unfortunately I'm going to have to take a post-party photo of the outfit I wore on Saturday as I don't have any from the actual day but I can describe my killer outfit. I wore a mustard yellow vintage button up shirt with a puffy sleeve detail and brought on that choker for a second day in the limelight - that necklace gets more attention than anything else! I wore my denim pencil skirt - there's something about pencil skirts and my bum that just really work out - and my lacey peep toe boots. In the evening I brought out my AMAZING leather jacket - shoa that one makes me feel and look like a super rockstar - its own separate post will follow.

Sunday I brought out the big guns, wearing some mustard heels, a metallic red sheer top, sexy leather-like skirt and the jacket I've been dying to have and wear - a print bomber jacket. SO much fun, pairing with a red lip and some super leopard print earrings I found whilst on a shoot in town. Yes it seems I can work and shop simultaneously, it's a great little skill to have.

HOUSE OF OLE - Men's Collection A/W 2013

House of Ole was really a one of a kind collection for me. I wasn't really able to regain balanced breathing after the sheer one-sie and then they bring out the men's collection. I count myself so fortunate to have a boyfriend that is not only talented and creative but that can actually dress impressively. But other than that, my eyeballs are accustomed to womenswear. So this caught me by surprise and bowled me over. And when the tiny dynamite woman came out, I had to remind myself and @markstry after that no, she was not a model but the designer. Damn, talk about a way of ending the show with a bang!

A few of my favourites were the plaid checked shirts, the gingham trim belt, the amazing selection of men's boots and the black and white geometric shirt.

House of Ole - A/W 2013

This was my first encounter with House of Ole and dare I say love at first sight? I was mesmerised as a red suit jacket bounced down the runway with the most incredible striped trousers with a beautiful calf detail. And the shoes. Oh gosh the shoes. Well done House of Ole, well done. I love that the collection had so many bold reds, red pleplum jacket, red pencil skirt and the oxblood shoes. Delicious. 

Then there was the leather LBD, and there was the small factor that J-Lo seemed to be wearing it and making my heart sing. Hello! And how about the cover page? Sheer meets floral with floral being a texture, can I hear a "hell yeah" ? The attention to detail in this collection is magnificent.

This collection had so many favourites, everytime a model stepped out my heart would skip a beat, I would say that breathing became difficult. Especially when the sheer one piece came out. If you want to know what love is, House of Ole will show you. Merci beaucoup, merci!
