Hey lovelies!! Can’t believe May is here gosh. Like this year is flying way too quickly. I hope the month has started off well for you. I’m on a mini school vac so I have the entire week off which was so badly needed before that final push! I’ve basically been lazying around my apartment all week and attending so many graduation lunches and dinners
Anyway, for today I wanna give you guys all the scoop on what went down at OnTrend SA’s pop up store event last month. OnTrend SA is an online shopping store in South Africa. South African designers come together to sell their pieces on this platform. Every few months they organize a pop up store event where designers can mingle with shoppers, media and other personalities in the fashion industry. I was too excited to get an invite. I had been to one of their pop up store events before, late last year, but this one exceeded my expectations.
That evening, I had a test to write in school from 6pm-8pm which sucked because the event was starting at 6. There was a fashion show at 7pm which I sadly missed but heard it was super cool. I rushed from my test at 8 to the venue to enjoy the whole shopping party experience. The venue was too gorgeous and I only wish I had been there earlier to shoot pictures of the views during the day. It was in a gorgeous mansion. There were waiters and bar men walking around with tasty treats like burgers and meat skewers as well as Tequila and Patron shots all night. Designers showcased their work on different stands…I saw quite a variety from jewellery to swimsuit wear. I loved that I got to mingle and chat with the designers and other media personalities. We sipped champagne and danced the night away thanks to DJ Viktoria’s amazing mix.
I wore all lace for the event. I actually got the bell-sleeved lace top from Toi Market in Nairobi. The high-low lace skirt is from Mr Price. I even felt inspired to do my makeup that day which is mostly due to watching so many make up videos of my friend Joanna Kinuthia on YouTube.
Luckily, I got to shoot a vlog so make sure to watch it and subscribe to my YouTube channel. I will link the vlog down below.
Until next time
