me and this shirt have great plans for the future (shopping cart item 1)
by Chloe Townsend's Missibaba
I met Di when we were both teenagers, it was high school. she was among my first friends in SA. I remember she was one of the smart kids in class, she even took computer science as a subject. I did too. #geeksunite! She used to literally do my homework for me. She was so good at Playstation games that she could thrash all the boys, if we did have any at school...
When I last saw her at the You & Me Market I was surprised to find out that she has decided to brave the world of fashion leaving behind the stressful life as a computer genius.
She always had impeccable taste in clothes. Her dress sense is that of the clean &classic aesthetic without being too minimal. Loads of tailored &detailed items to add sophistication to an otherwise bland combination. yep, she definitely has a good eye, maybe two.
just a side note, I can totally rock some of these sleek basics with sneakers and a 'comme' cardi.
I'm excited for Di (also known as Diana Spicer), all the best on ze new adventure!
* as i place that lovely white pleated shirt into cart........
Diana Spicer, Spence

I havent been bloggin for a while....loving spring time and the great outdoors. Rocking the Daisies was crazy. only fully came back to reality an entire week afterwards. Also, amidst the second wave of twitter addiction hitting me hard (follow @yangiswa for some all day BS and non stop yapping) The Dim Sums were getting much love at the You&Me Market, thanks to those who came and supported, I realised that my true purpose is to feed people. As Bob Marley said, 'a hungry man is an angry man' !!! a way to a man (or just people in general) 's heart is through the stomach. too true. so again, thank you to those who came through, and trust me, more varieties, new and improved recipes coming soon.
Not forgetting Doe, my first born. She is doing it again.

NEWS UPDATE, Piiimp and hype gal Em Kay decided to brave the open mic circle at KOL, and debuted our 2 verses that took a year to complete. It was DOPE! thx KOL, we had too much fun! today's tweets were all about that! we even got guys asking to make us beats! lmao. yea, so this is official annoucement, send your demo to.............we'll get at you...tl tl tl.
I still remember the day I first heard Uffie's music, I was way too excited! I get excited about seeing women doing their thing, bringing bold flavours into all kinds of arts. Its a man's world, we cant deny that. We can dress words up all day and call it however we want, as women we have to try that much harder at EVERYTHING! but alas, somebody is not giving an eff and i much admire that quality in these women (Married to the MOB crew for one, Hellz Bellz' founder Lanie, Billionaire Boys Club PR and Jewelry designer Yoon, Mademe Clothing crew, I'm sure many more we dont know about) I admire them for their lack of wanting to please, nor do they want to simply eat, sleep and pray daily...they want more, they crave life and you can see it in their work...
As the birthday came and gone, another year ahead...with age, I'm slowly getting more comfy with my own skin. My head is clearer and I see more. and the rest? as they say, will be history.
if you're going to RTD we'll be there!
