Can't believe I am done with my 6th outfit.. Two more to go! This is by far my favourite garment - dark and sparkly with a little somethin' somethin' ♥

I like short dresses with a good fit and luckily this dress was the perfect fit on my two beautiful classmates Ashleigh Dugdale and Bronwin Hicks :D I am so happy it came out the way I wanted it to. It is structured and suits the 'Deep Sea' look I am going for.. Thank goodness! 

My luminous deep sea /sea weed inspired creation...
Welcome to my "posse" (aka my collection for those of you who are reading this and thinking "whaaaa..??") little creature ;)

Hope you like! Onto the next one fellow studes.

A few weeks ago I helped a friend out by styling at a photo shoot for her up and coming vintage label here in Cape Town but seeing that it is still quite new and hasn't been launched yet, I am not allowed to post TOO much.. So, a little tease it is ;) I love taking photos and this was the perfect opportunity for me to have a little fun with my not-so-new (seeing that I bought it from a friend who bought it from a friend..) camera. I liked being the behind-the-scenes photographer, even though I was not reeeeeally officially appointed.. Hmm. Who cares? :D Here are a few of my photos ♥ 

Make up and Hair: Mari Conradie

Photographer: Michelle Viljoen

Designer and Buyer: Cheralee Lyle

Models: Jess and Retha @ 20Management

It's awesome doing something you love.. It's a shame I only realized what that something was last year but at least I now know what I have to do to be happy. Can't WAIT for my December holiday - travelling, photos, sun, cocktails and freedom? Yes please :D

The end is near..

Almost done with number 6.. Seven weeks (in total) left of college. Does this make me happy? Yes it does. Things are getting hectic at college but I'm just trying to stay positive and focused otherwise I will NEVER make it out alive. Get to class, insert earphones, play music, work. I am extremely easily distracted so this routine goes on for about an hour if I am lucky.

The outfit I am busy with at the moment (Look 7) is black and hints of electric blue to add to the 'Luminous Deep Sea' feel. I actually like making this dress, it's sooooo sparkly :)

Will keep you posted! Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday :)
