5-Day-Swag feat. Palesa Mashiyane

Afternoon fashion lovers!!! Hope ya"ll are having a super vryday!! Anyways Im super stoked about today's fashionista, her name is Palesa  aka @Pale_M and i love her, i think she's absolutely fabulous. Check her out ----->

Hi There!

I'm Palesa Mashiyane,I graduated as law student but decided to give in to my love for fashion!I'm currently working as a trainee fashion buyer and trendconsultant at a big SA retail house but my joy is in my freelance styling work.I've had the opportunity to style individuals and productions.

I'm inspired by life,by colour and every day people and street culture.My style and looks are inspired by street fashion bloggers like milliB,tavi & the sartorialist.But I take a lot of inspiration from style icons such as Chloe Sevigny,Alexa Chung,Blake Lively and The Olsen Twins.

Okay let me take you through the 5 looks:

Look 1: 

Lace dress-Arts on main vintage market
Military boots-Rage
Leather Biker jacket-Mr Price
Tan satchel-Forever New

I desrcibe this as very grungy meets romance look cause the the combination of leather,lace and military is an awesome contrast.I'd wear this to a musical festival or drum & bass gig.


 High waist gold shorts-Designed by Sian Bianca Moss
Cream Blouse-Second time around

I believe I'm chanelling Beyonce here!lol!definatly a girls night out or club look.I enjoy mixing vintage items with a contemporary look and I abuse the high waist trend!

Look 3:

Distressed Jean jacket-Mr Price
Blue skirt-Arts on Main
Brogues-Zoom shoes

This is my lady like swag.I love a classic look for fashion launches and fashion shows.I also love the colour play with different types and materials of blue.

Look 4:

 Purple high waist maxi skirt-MTC designs

Black blazer-designed by Abiah

I got the skirt designed for Durban July ad I love that this look can be day time with sandals and turned into nightime with a pair of heels.can never lose with the high waist trend!

 Look 5:
Print Jumpsuit-YDE

This is my indie inspired look.I love jumpsuits for their simplicity but I loved the print even more.a turban always completes an artsy look.

How gorgeous is she?! LOOOOOOOOVE HER!!!!! Thanks Pale, highly appreciated☺
