My day with Pharrell...sigh...oh and the concert....

I hardly ever get the opportunity to just act like a downright groupie but when I found out that N*E*R*D was going to be in town I knew that come hell or high water I was going to just have to set my pride aside and follow them EVERYWHERE they went which is what I did and I even got more than I bargained for when I randomly bumped into them at the Grayston McDonalds.  For the record, when I say "them" what I really mean is "Pharrel" and also for the record I wasn't actually EATING at McDonalds... just rendezvousing with a friend & the universe saw it fit to bring us (Pharrel & I) together for a face-to-face encounter.  It was magic.  I died & was resurrected several times that day.  Let's not even talk about the concert and the press conference that morning... "WOW!" is all I have to say.

So you all know that I have a complete obsession with leather EVERYTHING and for this week's "Fashion Friday" Designer of the Day I'm celebrating the work of the uber talented and equally lovely Amanda Leigh O'Connell from "Eponymous".
I first encountered this lady and her designs at the 'Designer Boutique Trade Show' for Buyers and it was love at first sight.  She produces her entire range out of the finest quality leather and goes even further than your imagination can stretch by producing wearable items like blouses and dresses out of leather.  Sounds crazy but it's an absolute must see... and see you will... I look forward to hosting her as a guest designer at Twenty Two (my store in Braamies) for our monthly Fashion Friday events which will be starting on the 4th March 2011.  Will tell you more about that later, in the meantime, take a look at the lovely pics below.  xx

Jozi: how do I love thee?... let me count the ways...

I was just all over the place this weekend & was reminded of how much I love the amazing city I live in.  First, it was Nonhle Thema's TV show launch, then Saturday on the Street-side shopping and listening to live music with friends at 70 Juta and lastly a full day at Market on Main (which is fast becoming my staple Sunday hangout).  There are so many reasons to love this city and here are a few of mine.

1. I love bumping into stylish people at lavish invite-only parties.

2. I love shopping on the streets of the CBD....

3. I love the fact that Joanna Claire jewellry designer extroadinaire has chosen to make JHB her home and can grace us with her design talents on a regular basis.
4. I love the different types of people that I meet on the street while shopping:-)

6. I love my friends and the way they make the steps of my store look so cool.

7.  I love leather pants (skirts, shorts, dresses & everything else)

8. I love my stall at the Market on Main... in fact I love the whole Market on Main. 

9. I love this dress by Christopher Strong.

10. I love cool boys with tattooes who buy leopard print undies.

This is totally random but I tend to just save nice pictures I find on my internet travels and never post them.  These are a few that have been sitting in my stash.  Thought y'all might like them too.

how to: repair a shattered eyeshadow

How cool are these nails!!!  I first fell in love with black nail polish about 2 winters ago when it made a real come-back, then last winter was all about grey; every shade of grey imaginable from gunmetal to storm grey and everything in between.  And now I find myself completely enamoured with this look - matte & glossy black; the modern take on the French manicure.  Yummy!!! Think this going to be this winters' thing for me!  Found this pic here case you're wondering!
