Look, winter seems to be here for real now, and I’m quite serious about one thing…
I woke up just before seven in the AM the other day, took a look out the window and it was still dark as fuck! I looked at my running shoes, thought #byegirl and went right back to bed! I’m not taking calls or meetings of any kind before 10am for the duration of winter. I feel like my sanity compels me to abide by this rule. I mean, really, what must happen? My brain don’t work until there’s been a few hours of sunlight, k?
Anyways. Serious as I am about my 10am rule, I do have one regret. On the day in question, Maison Mara hosted a champers shower morning to present their SS16 collection. By the time my sleepy brain started working, it was, like: “Oh fuck! I’ve missed that already”. Cool, cool, cool, not so cool, but, anyway, the weather’s getting chilled and I wouldn’t mind finding myself in some of their AW16 offerings, as per this rad editorial. Based in Cape Town’s De Waterkant, Maison Mara stocks brands including JW Anderson, Proenza Schouler and Kenzo.
