It Takes Two

Tart Clothing, a local fashion label that lies close to my heart will be showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town tomorrow and as I was scrolling through images of their passed collections, I thought why not show how some of the styles off the runway can easily be worn on the street. I linked up with Brilliant Kodie of xluddite, a talented photographer from Botswana who was in town for fashion week to capture what I had in mind.


The first look, is a simple midi bodycon dress which, as you know I love. The high neckline with the black gives it a sporty feel, which is why I chose to wear it with a pair of my favourite monochromatic trainers instead of heels. This dress was from the Spring/Summer MBFWCT collection in 2013, but cause it’s still as cold as ice outside, I covered up with the leather moto jacket.


This second look is my absolute favourite, cause I have a slight obsession with high-slits (yes, even in winter lol). This maxi dress was from the Autumn/Winter MBFWCT collection in 2013 and is definitely one that can easily be worn now and this coming summer… but because it isn’t summer yet and I am not looking to get sick between now and then, I pulled on my longer length cardigan, and a pair of strappy heels.



I can’t wait to see what this next collection will look like, I’m more than sure there will be more than a few babies that will get me even more eager for summer to come around.

Be sure to check back here for the sitch on that.
