Lemonade @ Spice Route
Its no secret that I love cheap affordable things. From clothes (most NB), to furniture and even food, I am all for staying within my budget lane. So when I saw this dress on one of my friends Kutala, I knew I either wanted to borrow it or I was willing to compromise on that lunch budget to getit.She wore this lemon print stunner at an event she invited me to a while back & I kept admiring it all afternoon. I wore this white dress but the dress I want to be seen in, was the one she wore. I was pleasantly surprised when she told me about it, she had me at “It cost her R50 in China Town”. I always told myself that china town clothing was not for me. I guess because Chinese products are synonymous with fragile and they get worn out quick. But then again so many of my clothes that I bought at other retailers have a made in china label (to be discussed on another day), so my logic is flawed in may ways. It would seem I have been sleeping on some good china town gems. The print is amazing & the fit is great as you can see, it’s a beautiful dress.
The pictures were taken at Spice Route, one of the many places in Cape Town that were on my bucket list. I want to say it’s a wine estate but it’s not. It’s a really great place that encapsulates the whole idea of a day out. They have a beautiful estate with restaurants that serve amazing food, there is wine tasting,a chocolate factory/tasting place, CBC beer, ice cream & a whole other things which I didn’t get the chance to explore. It’s great for a date, girls sessions or just taking the family to have good time. See more details here. We ate at Barley & Biltong & I would recommend their salads & Burgers, what a feast. I am definitely going back & taking more people with me.
What I’m Wearing
