Mungo & Jemima - Cape Town's heart-throb shop!

It really makes my heart warm when you see
amazing local successes such as Mungo & Jemima...

One of Cape Town's most gorgeous fashion stores.

Started by Marian Park-Ross and Kirsty Bannerman with
their first shop in Long Street (Cape Town), this little
business has grown with great popularity amongst the boutique-lovers
of our little city and now you can find them nestled in another new little
home in Claremont!

The idea for Mungo and Jemima is to provide local
South African designers a platform with which to 
sell their garments and designs to their fashion hungry clientelle.
Mungo and Jemima have a definite style, and the layout and design of
their shops demonstrates this beautifully...

South Africa's number 1 little online fashion hub <3
So, slightly stuck on where to shop and what
to wear for this summer?

Mungo and Jemima is a MUST-VISIT, and besides,
not only are you going to be kitted out in beautiful garments
that fit perfectly and feel amazing, but you'll be supporting
our local South African fashion industry!

Below are a few snippets taken from their
Summer 2010/11 Lookbook from the

I absolutely love the soft fabrics, the pops of colour
and the general
Secret-(Tropical)-Garden-esque aesthetics
captured in the images.

Welcome to Summer Cape Town ;)

Love, Enjoy and Share!

Ohsococo - Vintage French Inspired Swimwear Shoot

So as you all may have noticed by now, vintage swimwear 
is trending huge this Summer. Details to look out for include:

Ditzy florals, high-waisted swim suits, full pieces, 
polka dots, frills and embellishments etc etc.
Basically anything romantic, dreamy or 
slightly over-the-top.

Apart from a few labels who have been giving their
South African customers this delightful new treat of a trend, there are 
no definite labels in which to grab these specifics.
Luckily, very soon, there is to be a killer local swimwear label
for all of you who are dying for more of this style.
Although the name is still to be announced, 
below are some of the test shoot images I took for her
in order to capture the essence of this one-of-a-kind
conceptual Marie Antoinette slash queen of the world brand.

Feed back is ALWAYS welcome, 
we'd love to see what your thoughts are :)

Below are just my favs from our shoot,
but feel free to go to my
to see the rest!
