Saturday was a really busy and unnecassarily long day that began with me returning to hipster uniform (and my English teacher made a comment about how cold I was going to get with all the air going up there - she can do better), pretending that I just woke up with a dry curl (I WOKE UP LIKE DIS), getting lost in Roodepoort and then Riviera looking for the Guard the Vintage x Bianca Kim x MOON by Maxine Tromp pop-up shop and then finally landing at my friend Montanna's Sweet Sixteenth which was so beautiful and magical and I want to kick myself for not bring my camera but I don't because I'm doing this thing where I enjoy things instead of spending all my time trying to document them.

The pop-up shop was really weird but good. I discovered some cool online thrift/vintage-y stores that I want to frequent but I really wish I hadn't gone alone. The owners of Guard the Vintage, Bianca Kim and MOON were all young university students doing it all out of their back pockets and stuff which meant it was quite a small and intimate event. I also felt incredibly, like, small around them and was scared to say anything that would come off stupid, condescening, boring and/or ignored. But of course everything I was all of the above.

Getting my hair permed was such a jump. I've never had my hair up in curlers before - my mom's been obsessed with stick straight hair, except she has dreadlocks now so stick-straight hair on me - and I felt like something out of a BET Indie film. Or this one Tic-Tac advert where a trio of foxy mama jammas were sitting in a row, under hood dryers, reading fashion magazines which is basically the epitomy of everything I've ever wanted to be. AND MINTY BREATH as well.

    1. Oh my god, thank youuu. But I'm probably the creep here as I've been trying to make my girl gang emulate yours so we can also be cool and pretty and look like baddies at house parties. x

  3. I LOVE the way the skirt and jacket looks together - a little clashy, but still simple and very sophisticated.

  4. I can't deal with your brand of badass. (Also, I went of Zando and searched "faux docs" my frown was monumental.)

    You're so tiny, otherwise I'd send you jeans.
