Sometimes when a city speaks to you, you have to listen. And lately, when it comes to fashion, I feel like Barney Stinson’s motto of “new is always better” isn’t really what Cape Town’s been saying to me. Sometimes old is good. Sometimes something so old that it’s not even yours is better.

“We came alive in this city. The people, the pace and the chaos.”
Mr Price has always been one of those brands that is always on trend, and one trend that is still cool right now – thanks to veterans like A$ap Rocky (and maybe Kayla Itsines?) – is urban street style and sports luxe, and their new STREET range is definitely that international aesthetic on a budget (which is something that I, officially a student, can seriously appreciate).

When you’ve been on Tumblr for as long as I’ve been on Tumblr, you’ve seen lots of things – maybe more than you’ve wanted to by accident – but one thing you’d definitely have noticed are the fashion trends. Remember the Great Hipster Trek of 2013? The Indie Revival of 2014 (and probably 2015)? The Grungepocalypse?

before i got overwhelmed by the madness that is fashion week, i had the opportunity to shoot with the amazing photographer Tegan Smith while she was in joburg this past week. you may know her as the incredible photo taker behind Baked The Blog, and if you do, you’ll know that she’s good at what she does. i got to experience the magic first hand and i honestly can’t wait to do it again! i had such a great time shooting with her – and the pictures prove the magic.
Braamfontein Street Style
Before I begin, lemme just say that yesterday has broken my heart completely. I pray for justice for Trayvon and peace for the Monteiths. What a day.
On Saturday, my sister Sope and I went to Braamfontein and the Neighbourgoods Market (but that is a separate post in itself). For the first time, I felt brave enough to try and do some street style photography – but bear in mind, I am not a street style photographer and this is my first time, so I’m getting there. Braamfontein is where you can find all the ‘hipsters’, so to speak, so while I didn’t manage to shoot all the interesting outfits I saw, I shot some pretty cool ones too.
