Classic Quirk

Pants & Shoes: Thrifted; Shirt: Mr Price; Blazer: Identity; Bag: Sowearto
I love pairing black and white. It’s a timeless, classic combo that only needs a red lip. But I also love (perhaps not so classic) quirky elements of an outfit. The bow-tied ribbon, the high waist, the stripes, the fun shoes, the bun – maybe the mix of all of this is what makes this look feel a little quirky. It feels playful and fresh, and who doesn’t need some playful and fresh by Thursday each week?
I adore these shoes I thrifted recently. Now, I’m generally weary of thrifting shoes – but this pair, this pair spoke to me. I promise. It looks like it’s never been worn, and that’s a huge factor when I even consider thrifting shoes. Do you have thrifting boundaries?

Thank you to Lerato for these pictures.

Thank you for coming by!


  1. Hi Siyaam, thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ I thrift where ever I find a store! Hospice, a place called Bounty Hunters here in Jo'burg – a charity store that sells everything from clothing to books. I haven't even been to Salvation Army's thrift store here, but soon!
