Ray-Ban and Jeremy Loops at Oppikoppi 2012

September 13, 2012
Picture 13

This year Ray-Ban celebrates 75 legendary years and what better way to celebrate than at Oppikoppi. Ray-Ban and music have evolved together over the ages and we were at Oppikoppi Sweet/Thing supporting local musicians, as well as adding value to festival goers’ experiences.

Jeremy Loops is a modern day one-man folk band. Born out of necessity whilst working on yachts around the World, Jeremy discovered that there’s no-one better to work with than yourself. Now as the name may suggest, Jeremy has embraced technology in all its illustrious forms and creates his finely woven tapestry of sounds using his Guitar, Ukelele, harmonica and beatbox skills. He runs this all through a gamut of loop pedals, echo and distortion units and through the speakers to leave a crowd quite literally awe-struck.

Ray-Ban got to follow around the talented Jeremy Loops at this year’s Oppikoppi festival. Check out the video

Shop of the Week; Mr Price Mint Jeans

September 12, 2012

Beat the midweek blues with our awesome new weekly Wednesday feature… Shop of the Week!

These gorgeous mint, pigment wash hipster jeans from RT at Mr Price are so on trend right now and what we love most about them is the price! R129.99

Young, hip and on-trend they feature 5-pockets and a skinny fit. They are the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

How to wear mint jeans

We love mint jeans especially when paired with sheer white button up blouses and cute cream tops. They also look amazing with tangerine and watermelon tops, fitted white blazers (ala Kim Kardashian), cute black tees and nude biker-style jackets.

For some minty style inspiration, look to these stylish fashionistas…

 From Top Left:

    • We love Ashley from Ring My Bell’s pretty pastels outfit. She pairs her mint green jeans with a closet essential denim shirt and beautiful, nude platforms.
    • Local fashion blogger Carlinn from Superficial Girls wears her mint jeans with a beautiful silk camel top and a matching camel jacket. Perfect for Spring! Oh, and how cute is that bag?
    • This raspberry top worn by Emily from Creamy Clothes is such a gorgeous colour to pair up with your mint jeans.
    • Add a little studly edge to a girly outfit like Zina from Fashion Vibe. We love everything about this outfit!
    • A black peplum top adds a chic finish to this outfit worn by fashion blogger Dulce Candy. Love, love, love!

How would you style these mint jeans?

Back to flats

September 12, 2012

A change in seasons calls for a change in footwear, and ladies we’re going back to flats. Loafers, brogues, creepers, slippers, ballet pumps in metallic, sequins, studs, patent leather, velvet, you name it – you’re going to love being grounded this season.

Personally I love flats. Loafers and brogues are great finishes for the boy-girl trend, with trouser suits making a big come back for autumn/winter. And since it is boy-girl  you can have fun with this trend, taming down tailoring with a pair of metallic creepers or leopard print slipper pumps. Brogues worn with ankle socks give a classic, yet cute twist to dresses and rolled up skinny jeans – look to Alexa Chung and Chloe Sevigny for inspiration.
Slipper shoes have been, and still are, a huge high street trend here in London. Just like those battered Con’s you’ve had for the last five years, they’re just a good staple for your wardrobe. Slippers and ballet flats are great for the boardroom when worn with a drain-pipe trouser blazer combo, or with jeans and a sheer shirt for a chic weekend look. I’ve discovered so many looks with my studded leopard print pair.
For stiletto queens, I know it’s difficult to get your head around flats, but hopefully I’ve given you a few ways that makes swapping out those heels seem not so bad.
