So tomorrow night is the Marie Claire Loeries Winner’s after party and I’ve been racking my brain as to what I’m going to wear. A party like this calls for something sexy, something with oomph and something I haven’t worn before.
Luckily for me an angel stepped into my word in the form of Genuvieve Davies from Cape Town based label, Beautiful Maverick. She found me after I wrote about a Beautiful Maverick sheer pintuck blouse which I bought at one of the Blink Boutique pop up stores.
We’ve been chatting and she’s told me about some of the exciting things on her horizon (there will be more about that later). She also told me a funny story about a little bit of confusion around her label’s name. For some reason, some folks drop the “Beautiful” part and purely focus on the “Maverick” part and therefore she gets a lot of strange calls actually destined for that notorious Cape Town “gentlemen’s club”. I told her she should just tell them that she’s not in the business of taking clothes off, but rather in the business of putting clothes on.
Turns out she’s also been chatting to Clouds who also covered the same Blink Boutique event and who is also going to the same Loeries party. We told Genuvieve about the party and our stress about what to wear and she was like “chill ladies, I’ll hook you up” (OK that wasn’t her exact words, but that’s how I choose to remember it in my head. hehe). Upon hearing this news I did a dorky happy dance after which I started bragging to anyone who would listen, which included the poor guys at the security desk at my apartment building as well as an unsuspecting cashier at the 24 Hr Engen/Woolies…
Yesterday morning we popped into her studio in Kenilworth to go and try on some options. Now I’m not going to show you what I went with in the end, all I can say is that it has a bit of a “wild side”. But I’ll be showing you that baby in my Loeries party pics for sure. I can however share some of the other things I loved: ** please excuse my puffy eyes – during allergy season, mornings are not my thing… then again, mornings are pretty much never my thing, haha **
Gorgeous right? You can check out the Beautiful Maverick Facebook page for more pics of her new summer range.
