On trying to make the most of a recent stay in Cape Town, we woke up early to shoot some looks at Muizenberg Beach. It ended up being so super windy (extremely annoying with short hair), that I ended up closer to the water than I’d like, with wind swept hair and a constant stream of tears from sand, wind and sea. I can complain ‘cos I’m not a model – insert smiley face. I’ve sat with these shots for a while now wandering if they really speak for the designs..
I’ve come to the conclusion that they absolutely do! And better for shooting in less than prime weather conditions as it now becomes true that black really does go everywhere and really is the is the new everything. Or always has been, or whatever. Black, black, black, black to the beach, to the office, to the party, to the supermarket. How do you make yourself noticed or stand out? In pastel shades or generic prints? No. Black. Is someone going to remember the girl in the bikini on the beach? No. They will remember the girl in black. What suits everyone and makes them feel totally fabulous? Beige? No. Black. I think you get the message. Here are two of SJ’s ideal black darlings for taking you anywhere you’d like to go. Jazz them up with accessories, layer them for Winter or go barefoot to the beach, the world is not your oyster.. Black is.
The SJ Lady Maxi is available at Edgar’s XSAFW Capsule Melrose Arch and the Olivia Open shoulder shift will soon be available at Convoy – Bamboo Centre, Melville.
