#LookPost Biker Chic

vagabond shoes street style

I love to dress edgy, but with a bit of added feminine flair. With this look, I paired my edgy cropped biker jacket and buckled platform shoes with a pink polka dot knit. My masculine boyfriend jeans finished off my look to add some androgynous appeal. With all my outfits, I love to mix different lengths; so I cuffed up my boyfriend jeans which are paired with a longer length sweater and then a cropped jacket.

I have always loved chunky accessories. I paired my platform shoes with a chunky black bib necklace and oversized pearl bracelet.

#LookPost Pink & Plaid

One of my wardrobe staples, for both winter and summer, is my pink oversized blazer. It is the perfect piece to brighten up your winter wardrobe and the perfect cover up for chilly summer evenings. Here I have used it to brighten up my all black winter look. I have paired it with a plaid shirt to add some print, and accessorized with a silver chain bag.

#LookPost Autumn Chill

I have returned back to South Africa from London, just in time to catch my second consecutive winter. As much as I am craving sunshine and warmth, at least I am fully prepared (fashion-wise) for all types of cold.

Since I have been back, I have been very busy in the sewing room, sewing my new Jemimah Autumn/ Winter 2014 range for Babette Clothing which has been largely inspired by my time in London. (See my Facebook page for pictures of the new range). But I have also spared some time to sew a few things for myself. After spotting an AMAZING oversized navy plaid coat in the Topshop flagship store in London, I was inspired to make one for myself. It was the perfect display of the oversized/ masculine trend with the added trendy plaid print. Another trend that I am now seeing in South African stores is the fluffy knit trend. Cotton On and Mr Price are selling all kinds of fluffy knits: cropped, coloured, polo-necked, cardigans... So I also decided to design and sew my own fluffy knit, so to have something different from the masses.

To beat the Autumn chill, I paired both my new creations together with a beanie and high-waisted skinny jeans. I added some chunky jewellery and silver socks for some sparkle.
