MY:LOOK Kinda Katrantzou

I’ve been dying to wear this dress for ages, but never had the opportunity, but last week when our friends were visiting we went out for a gorgeous meal to The Bungalow in Clifton, so thought it was the perfect opportunity.  These pics were not meant to be for the blog, but I wanted to post about it as I love this so much, so the close up of the print is one I’ve just snapped now.  I saw this dress in a magazine when we 1st moved to Cape Town, so I asked my friend back in the UK to search for it in Primark, but she couldn’t find it anywhere.  I looked on Ebay and they were selling for £90 so I knew it was sold out so stopped thinking about it.  Anyway, when she went into Primark to buy me some shoes (do you see a pattern?  I Skype her, show her a picture and send her off on a shopping mission……. I had bags full when I got back to the UK!) she saw it in the sale for £6!  It was a size too big, but I’ve managed to take it in, and I love it!  I loved last season’s Mary Katrantzou collection, especially the lampshade shapes, and I thought this dress was a perfect take on that and 100 times cheaper than even the Topshop collection!

I wore this with a leather biker jacket, as my style is always to mix softer and harder pieces.  Plus I saw Demi Lovato wearing something similar on X Factor USA, so I was inspired by that too. I find Cape Town to not be that dressy, so I find adding a leather jacket dulls down a dressy piece, so I don’t stand out TOO much!  That said, I’ve kinda learnt not to worry, this is how I dress, and if people don’t like it, tough!!
