I always get asked to describe my style and I am like, “Uhm I am a complex human being, what do you mean?” My style changes with every mood. Is Mercury in Retrograde? Have I had my morning tea yet? These are the questions that are important to my daily decision in what I am going to wrap my skin in.
That being said, the moment I have figured out how I want the world to approach me, my shoes complete the look.
I had the absolute pleasure in figuring out 3 looks centered by these swoon worthy shoes from local South African brand House of Cinnamon. I went to their showroom and couldn’t breathe because of the beauty of the shoes. They are well designed by the fabulous Founder and Creative Director Frances Edwards, in edgy prints, textures and silhouettes that will make any gal stop and ask WHAT ARE THOSE? (In a good way).
Edwards design approach may be characterized as innovative yet simple and strikingly stylish. Every pair of hand-crafted flats, loafers, sandals is produced with great care and pride. This is reflected in the meticulous attention to detail and the quality.
Let’s get into the looks shall we?

Nothing screams 90s like plaid, corduroy and velvet. These Brogues are finished with a patent leather and animal hide. Blazer and sequin shorts from Revolt Clothing, Velvet dress worn as a top, thrifted.
Earrings from The Oriental Plaza.
The moment I saw these Caroline Snake Print Leather Mules I knew I would had to roll around in print, and see what sticks. Gave me annoying wanderlust friend vibes, always talking about her escapades in China, India and Somewhere in Africa.
