Owner & designer, Leandra Do Pereiro is a gorgeous gal who rocks out some seriously fun & flirty items. I first came across her things back at the beginning of last year when my friend Joe did a shoot for her first range. I got a sneak peak of her things while he was editing the shots from the shoot and I immediately begged him to give me her details so I could snap up some of the dresses before anyone else could get their hands on them. Yeah, I’m sneaky that way.
At the time she operated from a little workshop in Woodstock, so I grabbed my friend Nix and we headed over there for some serious retail therapy. That day I became the proud owner of these 2 stunning dresses:
Then I was very excited to hear that she was finally branching out by opening her very own boutique in Kloof St and I jumped at the opportunity to go check it out. Lovelee is like walking into a big, beautiful, girly bedroom:
And also this dress which I’m planning on wearing to the Queen’s Plate this weekend (with some blue accessories to fit the blue & white dress code):
To top it all off, her pricing is an absolute dream. For all 3 items (blouse, dress & waistcoat) I only paid a total of R1150 (or something like that – lost the slip). I mean seriously, that’s crazy good!
Go and check out the Lovelee Facebook page for more pics & details. And do yourselves a favour and make a turn there if you’re in the area. Leandra says she plans on getting in new things on a regular basis – so if you’re a total shopaholic like me, that’s just plain awesome.
