Happy Tuesday dolls! Yesterday I was at the launch of the MBFWCT17 courtesy of the fabulous people at Mercedes-Benz SA. The launch was held at the stunning Mesh in Rosebank just up the Glam Alley! I spent the night with some fabulous leaders in fashion in Johannesburg and the gracious Dr Precious Motsepe.
OOTN: I stepped out in my bamboo handle Gucci Dinosysus with my a snug pair of jeans and strappy heels – P.S this baby is a def part of my classic bags now! I saw the black one on Beyonce and died, I had to get my own in my own style something that was a bit more missposhglam, Gucci collection is growing gradually, Ive always been an LV lover so the the change is still scary *covers eyes*. Yesterdays look was a inspired by the Queens look one of my faves casual yet classy.
