You know those spring days when it’s not too hot nor too cold? When you’re able to wear a pair of jeans, a jersey or a summer dress? Those are fashion’s favourite kinda days. Those are my favourite kinda days! This dress couldn’t have been more perfect for last Sunday’s weather. When that slight breeze catches a flowy dress. I also thought it was a great opportunity to wear my ‘Francoise Hardy’ necklace.
I’ve recently been following a local South African brand on Facebook called, Lazuli, and was so impressed with their spring/summer range. Because so many of the garments are vintage inspired, and I love to feature local designers, I thought I’d contact them to see if we could shoot product images for VL magazine and perhaps discuss a feature on this blog. But when I finally saw the garments in person, touched them, even smelt them, I decided I’d wear them instead. I am, after all, a girl. So the dress I’m wearing above is from Lazuli. What I love is that each garment is one of a kind and that they’re handmade using local fabrics. I’m obsessed with lace and unique textures, and they use some of the finest I’ve ever touched.
I actually had so much fun getting these pictures taken, and realised that playing dress-up is in fact a hobby of mine.
