Being in fashion can seem tricky to people looking in from outside the industry. I say this because there is a certain notion that if you are an industry darling of sorts, one is only allowed to rock a killer outfit or piece once *as I reference that compelling piece in Elle Magazine South Africa from last month, about the very statement*. On the real though, it comes very easy to fall victim to fashion and sometimes miss an opportunity to appreciate non-conventional (yet super stylin’) items. Perfect example; who can possibly claim to not understand my affair with that rad ¾ sleeves blue/ green. Part Asian print, part something near paisley print jacket I bought from MSC boutique’s much loved vintage wares. I wore the jacket on that awesome evening when Trevor Stuurman was caped Elle’s Style Reporter in association with Blackberry ®. The thing is, I believe your clothes are yours you are afforded the right whatever the hell you want with it –as long as you avoid looking like a an idiot. I believe in this motion so much that even though this jacket is something of a loud number, I aim to stretch its mileage, so long as I can invent newer ways to wear it. You know, merchandise it some topical bits. My name is Mahlatse James and I am for giving amazing clothing a second, third, fourth, fifth and sometimes a six chance.
