Yesterday I perused the winter sales in one of my favourite areas of Joburg, Rosebank. Four hours later and a pair of very sore feet, I returned with this very lovely lace number from my favourite shop The Space. The Space is an incredibly special shop to me as it offers rails upon rails of high quality quirky South African fashion by a variety of designers. Every rail is completely different from the others making it a treasure trove for me. I am a very tactile person (and shopper), so being able to touch and feel such beautiful and different fabrics enhances my appreciation of clothes so much more.
This dress is by South African label, Miyabi. Designer Sandalene Olivier, ensures that Miyabi delivers fresh and wearable fashion but that is also edgy. Initially I wasn't too taken with the dress on the hanger but after putting it on and seeing how flattering it was to my body, I was sold on it. And a dress bought on sale is even sweeter!

We decided to photograph in the contrasted light with heavy shadows because for me the dress is all about light and shadow. And while the rounded collar and silhouette may make this dress appear to be quite cutesy and girlish, it definitely isn't with the black lace and pink underskirt cheekily peeking through.
P.S I hope you like the new header! I felt like it was time for a change, especially since I now have a much better understanding of this blog and myself as well. These last six months with this blog have been so wonderful.
