Live, Love, Local | Style


I love being South African! Every part of it! The connotation of it, the saying of it and even the feeling of it. We are so diverse. Our culture, heritage, history. The stories are endless. Which is why when local designers decide to spoil me with their stuff. I get super excited!

I love supporting local. Walking around little boutiques or small local businesses. People actually trying to make a life for themselves by using their talents. Whether it be the entertainment guys juggling sticks at a busy robot, or hand crafted clothing and jewelry at your local flea market. It just breathes African culture and entrepreneurship.



About my look

When Anneen Henze contacted me, I quickly did a Instagram stalk of her collection and fell in love with her stuff. I knew this designer from Cape Town knew her stuff and was so proud of what she put out there. Cape Town, much different than our concrete angle Johannesburg, has a very hard back, soft, serene vibe, and through Annex’s collection I could see that. Her designs are very minimalistic neutral designs with a touch of earthly accents. She spoiled me with a couple other gifts from local entrepreneurs like earrings from Armilla – which I’m sure if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you might have seen them already.

I get so excited about local brands, so it gives me great honor to be wearing and showing off this bronze top from her Summer collection. Paired with a pair of jeans and a pair of brogues, you’re ready for the holiday’s. For more from her collection visit her Instagram @anneenhenzecollection or visit her website at



If you’re looking for a holiday spot this December, South Africa should definitely be on your list! To all my South African’s, I’d say we’re living in paradise! #ProudlySouthAfrican
