LDJ Collection launches online store

Ana Wintour is a powerful, successful and a role model to many in the fashion industry. One
of her quotes got my attention a few days ago;
“Fashion only goes in one direction,
and I am a firm believer in thinking that way too.”
This is a quote that reminded me about the talented, hardworking and inspiring Lynné De Jager – former Mrs South Africa and now owner and designer at LDJ Collection. Lynné is one of the most down-to-earth women I’ve ever met. She also achieves great success in everything that she does – and today’s blog post is just another one of Lynné’s success stories.

With her cork and leather handbag range, LDJ Collection, being such a hit in the South African consumer market, Lynné decided that it was time to launch her own online store for the LDJ Collection and today is the day its happening. 

A few weeks ago Lynné spoiled me with a LDJ Collection pouch and make-up bag and I am in love with it! This is a product with amazing quality, esthetic value and of course, a one of a kind type of material used. In the next following weeks I will do an exclusive blog post showing off my LDJ Collection – so be on the lookout!

I would also like to use this opportunity to thank Lynné for her continuous support and care with my blog and my dreams. I would also like to thank her publicist, Milan and personal assistant Elana, for always answering my questions and replying on my late night e-mails.  

I can't go a day without my LDJ Collection make-up bag with turquoise zip detail.  
I just love my LDJ Collection pouch bag.

Theron & Theron soon available at OnlyOco

It’s amazing to see how fast brands are able grow in the South African consumer market and Theron & Theron are definitely one of them. This brand started in 2015 (yes, last year) and is already growing at an enormous rate. I am so proud to be part of this brand as their official blogger. My dream for Theron & Theron are that their merchandise will available nationwide at retails. This is a brand I firmly believe in and know that they will have amazing success stories in the future as well.

Their latest achievement consist of being part of the soon to be new retail store OnlyOco that launches later this year. Here only one of a kind products will be sold and Theron & Theron are one of the brands that will be featured here. The store’s owner, Candice O’Neil will make sure that this is a store that you have to visit when you are in Cape Town as the store will consist of a coffee shop as well as a retail segment where Candice will be hosting styling and make-up workshops.

I will keep you updated on exactly when and where OnlyOco store launch will be, so if you find yourself in the Cape Town area, make sure to get your own one-of-a-kind Theron & Theron design.

Wooden Lace - Boho Sheek Winter/Spring 2016 range

A while ago Ulricke Laubscher, owner and designer of Wooden Lace contacted me and said that she was planning a new range of merchandise - a Winter/Spring collection for 2016. I was so excited to see what she came up with - as Wooden Lace is my favorite accessories brand in South Africa. Ulricke decided to do a Boho Sheek inspired range and when I asked her more about this particular range she replied with the following: 

"What a big couple of weeks I have had! I am just so happy and proud to be able to finally share all my loves with you.  I have put so much time and thought into every aspect of every piece. Not only will you look fabulous wearing an exclusive Wooden lace piece but you will love the functionality and all the beautiful new swingtags and branding that make each design so special.  I am just over the moon with all the positive feedback. I can’t thank you enough!!

I have also been asked a lot of questions about what inspires me and where I go to gather all my ideas. With the weather soon to be warming up these are my absolute go to styles! I'm a real spring girl, spring is fresh, new, and always go through a little bit of a 'transformation' after the depressing winter. They say summer bodies are made in the winter, well here at Wooden lace we work hard in the winter time to be ready for spring/summer and have our Collection in all our outlets in time. 

This collection is real boho sheek and kind of different from the previous ranges. I shared some designs on social media and the response were phenomenal!! Thanks to my followers and people who believe in me and the brand. Without you I wouldn't be here. 

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!! Will share the complete range throughout this week. 

Wooden lace love
