I am an advocate owning a look from top to toe. Nothing grinds my wobblies quite like the nerve to walk round knowing very well that you are a spitting image of the next person –I think it really just defeats the purpose of existence #YeahISaidIt. That being said; one should always work towards finding a balance of sorts between taking from a trend (seriously, they exist for a reason) and #WERQing essentials to fit their already existing wardrobes. You can probably gather –from these pics, that I am still fully buzzing from Mille Collines’ revolutionary layered and cropped situation as showcased at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013. My look had to be street style ready and fresh for a friend afternoon braai gig. -see by-the-pole with a pavement backdrop vibe over there?
