style overload

Stunning silver cuff covered in animal heads.

More jewellery porn

Prada chandelier heels with nail heeled blue shoes (anyone know who those are by?)

Loved both Adidas trainers (the winged coloured plus silver studded ones)

Those Miu Miu boots & vintage platform wedges (which I really loved)

Perfect New York shoes if you ask me

The styling for these two was perfect…(will show their full looks in another post)

Me back in my own clothes after the shoot. Shown with style editor for and one of the stylists Zandile Blay.

Harem jeans & lace corset: H&M. Wedges: Bebe. Mirrored aviators: Ray Ban

Today I went to a photo shoot for Paper magazine (still can’t believe I was included in this incredible opportunity. I swear I’ll buy 20 copies when the issue is out).

The selection of apparel, shoes and accessories was beyond, so I thought I’d share some random shots that I took while there. I’ll show more when the issue is released.

ps. I’m buying that hot pink lipstick by Narstomorrow.
