Summer Lust Lists – Robyn Cooke

November 30, 2010

Today we take a look at Robyn Cooke, Madame Style Guide CT’s Summer Lust list.

If you haven’t heard of Robyn Cooke, you haven’t heard of blogging – she’s one of SA’s best known fashion bloggers, with an eye for detail, an incredible sense of style, and oh, she’s also the Fashion Editor at O Magazine South Africa.

1. Lalesso Dress
Top of my list for summer is a Lalesso dress from South African Designers at Woolworths. I love to support local fashion. I adore Alice from Lalesso. The Woolies prices are affordable. And the dresses are super-cute and perfect for a hot summer in Africa. Sold!
2. Cute Kitten Heels
Also on my list for this season is (yet another) pair of cute, pointy kitten heels from Jimmy Choo. I try only to buy Jimmy Choo shoes by saving up for the best I can afford. It feels like luxury, lasts like luxury and makes my feet very, very happy.
3. 50’s Inspired Swimsuit
The other thing that I lust after for the season is 50s style one-piece bathing costume – in modern lycra. This is an almost impossible task, one that I have set myself every year for the past five years. Can anyone assist? It needs to have low cut leg, probably ruching over the torso and a full bra cup and straps. Maybe it is a blown rose floral. Well [Dimi] you said be specific! Help…

    Beatnik Bazaar was doing a whole range of vintage inspired swimwear through their Folklore range at one stage, and I think it’s made to order so you could probably pick your fabric and print, Check out the pics on
