Monday show-down

Hello Monday. Phew, it really is taking me a long time to get going today. And I can’t even blame the weather – it’s delightfully hot and summery in Jo’burg, although a big old thunderstorm would not go amiss. Something to settle the dust and wash away the winter dullness of the Highveld.

I had a busy busy weekend, but the summer open days on Friday and Saturday at The Peech were a hit, with Jozi girls coming out of their winter hiding places and throwing themselves at summery prints and bare skin. All in all a lot of fun. Except for the giant jelly beans which seemed a good idea initially, but ended up making me feel sick and tooth-achy...

Today has been marginally productive. I found some divine fabric at the Plaza which is going to make a magical maxi dress, and I scored a vintage Marni dress at my favourite second hand haunt, Rags and Lace on Jan Smuts. It is truly beautiful and makes me feel pretty :)

I also discovered another blog love Skinny Bitches (in the making) which is funny and clever and definitely something to perk up a slow Monday.

And now something for the other Converse fans. Lanvin’s celebrating their 120th anniversary and have collaborated with Converse, designing this white/blue high top 1976 leather sneaker, complete with custom Lanvin tags. Something else to buy online. Sigh.
