hello lovely readers…how are you all on this Thursday? Today I’m feeling a distinct winter chill to the Cape Town air: I hate to admit it, but winter is just around the corner for us. However, this change of season means that we can start wearing boots, jackets and cosy scarves again, which is a look I quite like. With my New York trip coming up at the end of this month, I’ve been watching the weather closely to see if it’ll warm up or stay very nippy in the big city…I hate over-packing and like to know what I’ll be needing from a wardrobe point of view. Of course, if I’m caught with too-hot or too-cold clothes, I can always hit the shops, right?

So our approaching winter weather (which is, let’s face it, not particularly cold in comparison to our northern friends) has got me eyeing the fur-wearing street-stylers out there and dreaming of vintage fur coats…
