Velvet Vixen - From Summer to Winter
This is always fun. Getting ready for a new season. And I’m an April baby, so I love cooler, cuddle weather. Even though Cape Town sometimes surprises us with a 34° heatwave at the end of April to May. A girl can never be TOO prepared. Anyway, here are some key pieces in my wardrobe for fall and this winter.
Pieces include garments from Sassy Chic, boots and shoes from Pesso and caps and chokers from Tessa Design. The faux fur coats were all my mom’s, as I thought I’d make this shoot special honouring her in the month of May, it being Mother’s Day.
* SassyChic Plunge Back Jumpsuit – Grey (R599.00) with boots from Dolce Vita South Africa, and one of my favourite chokers this season from Tessa Design. Completed with a faux fur coat.
* SassyChic Bodysuit Blouse – Black (R499.00)
* SassyChic Crushed Velvet Crop Top – Burgundy (R299.00) I decided to wear it separately, as well as together. Both created different, sleek looks for Winter. I completed the look with Pesso Triple boots from Pesso.
* SassyChic Crushed Velvet Slip Dress – Black (R399.00) - probably my favourite look. Velvet is a huge trend this season. Pairing the dress with cap from Tessa design, a denim choker from Tessa design (also a huge trend this season) and suede Pesso Valbo boots from Pesso.
* SassyChic Slay Tee - White (R250.00) combined with a classic denim from Sissy Boy, a gorgeous faux fur jacket that belonged to my mother, a navy cap from Tessa Design and completed the look with a pair of Pesso Karoo boots. Relaxed. Chilled. Yet classy. By the way, the glasses I am wearing, is my actual prescription glasses from my optometrist. Unique, vintage frames. One of a kind.
As for the shoes, here you can find more information about each pair:
Comes in grey and navy
Made from a beautiful, soft suede with padded leather footbed for all day comfort.
A sexy, ankle skimmer with zip on the perfect height heel.
The Velskoen has become a Pesso staple and this natural stone coloured velskoen is made from a luxuriously soft perforated suede. On trend with white, cleated sole, this one is our best yet!
Our Chelsea Boot is very chic in a black patent leather with an extra wide elasticated strip and pull tab for easy on and off.
