Chef by day | shopper by night

Tuesday evening I missioned to one of my best friends Sam, who by the way is our incredible fashion contributor here at on fashion street, to casually hang out and possibly discuss future endeavours for this website.  Sam's twin sister bought these 'Jeffrey Campbells' and promised I'd be the first to do a post on them when they touch down in Cape Town.  Since she was nowhere in sight, Sam and I took to her room to do what we would call "Raid" her closet.  It all started with only the Campbell's, a handbag and some jewellery only to find ourselves knee deep in Guess handbags and Shoes for Africa five minutes later.  We managed to shoot at least two accessory looks and other rad items in her humongous collection, but got out of there mighty quick as we could no longer stand the heat (which I'm pretty sure came from all these hot items).  I always knew she had quite a large collection, but this was just surprising to me.  With almost no space for her furs and bags of jewellery this chick isn't anywhere close to done with the online shopping world.  Although I must say, I really admire her unique taste and that she goes straight for the high fashion pieces instead of playing it safe.
Here are only but a few of the things we managed put together and photograph. 
Chanel sunnies, spiked collar, Guess handbag, Guess wrist watch, Jeffrey Campbell's

Love this spring look Sam came up with

Barbara Palvin for Terry Richardson

When world famous photographer 'Terry Richardson' teams up with the hottest celebs , you can be assured the outcome will be fierce and dorky at the same time.  Mostly shot in Black & White and channelling the inner personality of stars, his pictures are amazing with out a doubt.  He's photographed almost every 'IT' girl out there and befriended the most popular people in the industry.  Terry recently did a shoot with young and gorgeous Victoria Secret Model 'Barbara Palvin' who was rumoured to be dating "singing sensation" 'The Biebs' not to long ago ( safe to say she has denied every and any rumour of that sort ).  What I love most about Terry's work is that It's never done in an editorial kinda way.  Just him some lighting, his camera, who ever his shooting, no fancy clothes or make-up, yet he nails every single shoot he does.

(So I know my obsession with models has become a problem, but I can't deal.  So bear with me?)

On that note, I wish you all a jolly weekend filled with fashion, love and endless joy.

Stay tunned for more cool posts to follow.

Young on Runway - Cara Delevingne


 20 year old model Cara Delevingne is making a good and healthy name for herself in the fashion & modelling world.  Besides walking in almost every well known designer's show last year,  I love that she still has a child like attitude, always channelling her inner goofiness back stage at fashion shows.  If its one thing that makes this beauty stand out among the rest, Its definitely her eyebrows.  She has these thick brows wild enough to make her a "successful Model".  The British bombshell has already made friends with Barbados bad chick Rihanna and many other celebrities for that matter.  Being the younger sister of  other 'runway beauty' Poppy Delevingne, Cara must be getting the right tips to being the best out there.  So before I bore you with her whole life story to feed my obsession, Here are some of the shows she walked in. 

She is amazing...
