Next month I am going to London for the first time, and with that in mind I am saving like a maniac for the shopping frenzy that my BFF Katy and I are going unleash upon the city.
And, as one does, I am already browsing… and the grand browse starts with ASOS! Yes, I know they ship to South Africa, but for some reason I am sold on the idea of pre-ordering stuff, so that when I arrive, I do so to a little parcel of London-ready lovelies, fresh ‘n new for my first overseas shopping jaunt. My plan is to take as little clothing with as possible (a near-impossible feat for me) so that I can return with tons. Vintage markets, watch out!
Inspired by the lusty splashes of primary red blooming in street style at the moment, I started hunting for red anything. But I got sidetracked when I laid eyes on the gold leather paperbag-waist shorts below… and the little selection thus morphed into a collection of warm-toned Autumn-ready beauties. Leather, silk, pleating and volume working together to create ladylike but playful looks that are beckoning to me transcontinentally.
