My Little Monte Carlo

When my best friend, Dacey, lived in Plettenberg bay, we would often pretend that it was our own little version of Monte Carlo (my dream town). I spent last weekend up there to see the people who are buying my mohair shrugs and to see my brother. The place where the mohair people are based is a beautiful store out in the countryside with gorgeous products, unlike the odd little fuzzy mohair blanket shop I imagined. I also spent a day teaching the ladies there to make cardigans which they will possibly make and sell under my label in the future... exciting!

Saturday was magical! We spent the morning at this amazing little farmers market which is held in a big clearing in a forest outside Sedgefield. It was full of beautiful foods and fresh produce...and olives!!!!! Yummmm!!! *died and gone to olive heaven*

On our way out of Sedgefield we found a vintage car dealership. I then continued to die and go to car heaven. There was a giant pink Cadillac, like a marshmallow on wheels!!Beauuutiful! Daddy can I have one pleeeeeease! *nag* Ah and I wore my favourite turquoise dress, black cardi, tights and boots and my big old cream shrug... winter weekend wear.

Sexy mafioso car... I think its a Camero...nice!

Could a car be any cuter?


I am totally inspired by these cars! Imagine the sweet outfits you could wear with these cars...Oh my god what fun!

Anyway, I'm keeping very veryyyyy busy with knitting etc at the moment. I'm starting my collection now (I'm such a procrastinator) and am hoping to finish it by September. Wish me luck!! I will post some more pics of my work soon. I just sent my outfit for the No Kak competition up to Johannesburg, but will take some pictures of it when I go up there on the weekend. Till then, cheerio dearios!

So busy busy!

Oh oh oh, I've been so terribly busy! I've spent the entire week making a big order of shrugs for a lovely shop in Plett, and I'm going up there this weekend to so some ladies how to make cardigans...knit knit knit!! So this is why I haven't been blogging! And I don't have time for a proper post right now. But I'll share this; I created a little logo for myself.

Organization = Productivity

Wow! Organizing my work area has proved to be most beneficial to my wardrobe. Ever since I cleaned up the other day I've been so productive and motivated. I think that will be my key to success. So yesterday, just on a whim, before watching Days of Our Lives, I made this beautiful little top. I never do that! Its awesome!

The fabric is some synthetic knit which I found amongst all those bags, it has a lovely shimmer to it. The lace is vintage, I found it at art in the park.

So this is my new way of life, organization organization organization!
That is difficult to say 3 times.

I love my new dress

My friend Jenna was so sweet as to give me this exquisite Japanese kimono fabric last week. Its absolutely beautiful, and I love how it has two different prints. It has sections with the navy and floral print, and then sections with the stripes and floral. So instead of throwing it into my pile of fabrics that I say I will use (one day), but never will (this doesn't apply to these), I decided to get right onto it and make myself a beautiful dress! I'll take a picture of me wearing it when I go out in it.

We went to a cat show on Saturday, it was magnificent! I LOVE cats (not in a catlady kind of way) and was in awe of all the beautiful kitties. These were my favourites...
