She’s finally here: Winter Lookbook
“Fashion is part of the daily air and it changes all the time, with all the events. You can even see the approaching of a revolution in clothes. You can see and feel everything in clothes.” —Diana Vreeland
Of course I once again worked with my talented team, Samantha Clifton behind the lense, and Merlize du Toit on hair and makeup! This LookBook is especially to create trendy winter inspired looks, easy to dress up or down! Key pieces include garments from Sassy Chic , boots from Dolce Vita, sneakers Duca Del Cosma and caps and jewelry from Tessa Design. The coats were from FabLane Online and LUNAH.
We also decided to have a complete change of scenery for this shoot, and the location of the shoot is the gorgeous Bantry Bay Suite Hotel. The elegant hotel and refined studio suites with sea or mountain views is the perfect location for this shoot, and also the perfect location for a weekend getaway - They offer kitchenettes, balconies, Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. Upgraded suites have separate lounge areas. Bi-level penthouse suites feature private rooftop terraces. There’s also an outdoor pool and a bar/lounge. I mean, I will definitely be back! Have a look at their website: www.bantrybaysuitehotel.com
Here are the looks I created for you:
Milan Bodysuit – R290.00 – a classic IT item to go with a mini skirt (as seen in these images) and beautiful coat (this one is the LUNA envelope coat), or a jeans and cardigan – easy to dress up or down, with boots, flats or heels.
Blair Fluffy Cardi – R750.00, definitely a favourite for me – a classic winter piece and I chose to keep it casual as seen in these pics.
Cher Check Dress – R299.00 – Right, I love turning dresses into tops (mainly because I am so tall)! ‘Check’ is still trending (and I am almost sure it will always trend) and the colours of this dress is beautiful for winter! This top/dress looks great with stockings or a nice pair of denims, paired with a coat or leather jacket if it’s chilly!
Candy Chunky Jersey – R599.00 – Super comfortable and cute! I’m all about being comfy in winter and this jersey is a beautiful piece for every winter closet!
Riri Tunic Dress (Rust) – R380.00 can be worn as is, as it’s such a beautiful and warm colour, it works as is, or with a waist belt, OR as seen below, paired with the Abby Studded Skirt – R495.00 (of course I turned it into a top again) – Very easy to dress up, or down for a lunch or a night out!
