Personal Style: The Story of a Pinafore/Taking Stock. 

I’ve never been the taking stock kind of person.

I hardly look back because I don’t like regretting stuff and looking back might just be the trigger to regretting some decisions I once made, but I also realized looking back makes you appreciate how far you’ve come and the great decisions you’ve made.

Hi beautiful people,

Mood

You guys remember I worked at the Vogue Talents exhibition during Milan Fashion Week (you can read all about it here).. So basically, I was assisting a particular *amazing* South African designer for the week. His name is Laduma Ngkoxolo and he owns Maxhosa by Laduma and he makes knitwear in these beautiful prints which I am in love with. The skirt I am wearing today is from his first female collection.

Wearing tights with sandals because elderly Milanese women always seem to be concerned whenever they see my legs bare like “Are you cold?” “Are you sure?”. Apparently, I have a high threshold for cold.
