Last week thursday Angie and I (as well as a ton of other bloggers and media people) were flown down to CT to celebrate the launch of Mr Price Summer!
They went all out to create the ultimate summer fest! It was basically like stepping into Coachella. We were greeted with a drink and a programme of a whole list of things to do.
There were two pop up shops. One was a summer edit of a few of the new things at Mr Price and the other was an incredible Henry Holland installation with the 9 beautiful dresses he designed for Mr Price. (Which you can get on the online store or in the shops now).
There was a flower crown making station where we could make our own fresh flower crowns, and a beauty bar where everyone could go get their hair braided and their nails done. I got a braided/flower crown combination and absolutely loved it - I really have to learn how to make my hair like this at home!
It was so awesome to see everything that Mr Price is doing with the Red Cap Foundation and to see all the exciting new things they have in store for 2014.
Scroll through to see a few highlights from the day.
Sneak peeks from their S/S 14 range.
It was such a rad day meeting and chilling with internet friends, eating amazing food from the Old biscuit mill vendors and listening to some lovely tunes by Jimmy Nevis and Blush and Bass.
One other very cool thing they had was an Instabooth provided by the newly relaunched 250gram. Every instagram we posted with the hashtag #MrPmySummer got printed out and we got to take them all home.
Thanks Mr Price for an incredible day!

Earlier this year I was involved in a shoot for a small boutique shop called Ella Anne. My friend Marina and I put everything together, scouted out the location, and I took the pictures (my first time ever doing fashion photography!).
I've put off sharing these pictures for a while as they were only ready in the winter months and it seemed weird blogging about short shorts and dresses, but now that we're pretty much into full blown summer it seems more appropriate.
I have to say I have newfound respect for fashion photographers, it's really not as easy as it looks! The light faded so quickly and the whole thing was pretty stressful but I learnt so much in the process and will do everything a lot different next time.

Last week friday was the Jane Sew's Pop Up at Wolves. It was such a lovely evening of good tunes, pretty dresses and awesome people. Gareth made this really awesome little video of the night! I love it.
If you missed out.. you do know you can shop Jane Sews online right? Trust me, everything is so beautiful in real life.

Jane Sews is running a campaign for her new summer 2013 collection. Follow the hashtag #MySummerWithJane on instagram and twitter to see some of her beautiful pieces. The lovely Amy (of Jane Sews) sent me this beautiful sky blue dress and asked me a few questions about summer.
My name is... Emma-Jane
I live in... a lovely surburb called Parkhurst in Johannesburg
I'm dressed in... the Emily Midi Dress in Sky Blue.
Wearing this dress makes me feel like... dipping my toes in the swimming pool water to see if it's warm yet, it makes me feel like frolicking around a park to find the perfect picnic spot and it makes me feel like eating a simple summer supper outside, barefoot.
My favourite things about Summer are... Watermelon, bare legs and longer days.
Jane Sews is hosting a pop up shop in Joburg on friday 11 October 2013. All the details for the event are below. Sounds like a nice evening of music and shopping all her beautiful new pieces.

If you haven't heard already Black Betty is having a pop up shop at LALALUX in Parkhurst. So if you want to go spoil yourself with some jewels today is the last day!
They're open from 10am - 4pm. I think it would be a perfect lunch break activity. Find them on 50 6th Street, Parkhurst (Next to In Good Company).
I got one of their rings ages ago at Mr & Mrs, and I just love the scratched gold look. I picked out a few of my favourites from their new Treacle range below.
Thanks to Black Betty for sending me these beautiful pictures. All taken by Lar Lesley.

British designer Henry Holland is back in South Africa and has created a new range for Mr Price. He has designed nine dresses all inspired by his favourite women - Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Alexa Chung, Agyness Deyn and Poppy Delevingne. My favourites have to be the Kelly and Alexa dress. Again a portion of each sale is going to the Red Cap foundation. So you can help by simply buying a dress.
Quite a fun behind the scenes video too.

Jane Sews just teamed up with Brooklyn based photographer Amber Mahoney for their MY SUMMER WITH JANE campaign. It stars the gorgeous Hannah Kristina Metz, and was styled up by Emily Theobald with special appearances from Young Frankk , Etymology and Beacon's Closet. I love the dreamy nostalgic feel to these polaroids. It makes me want to pack my bags and go on a road trip, and stop to run into sunflower fields along the way.
Follow the #mysummerwithjane campaign on instagram - it's so nice to how people have styled up their different outfits all over the country.

Joburg has quickly skipped through spring and has jumped straight into summer this week. It's so lovely and warm and we can officially pack all the winter warmers away and unpack all our breezy summer clothes.
Woolworths is showcasing some of their key summer items every week online in the form of a fashion convo. This week the key item is the cropped pants. I got to pick out a pair to style up so I picked the bright orange one's because they screamed summer to me.
First of all I'm quite short so cropped pants are basically like normal pants for me, so I folded them up slightly at the bottom so you can see a little more ankle and paired them with some clogs (that slightly help to lengthen my stubby short legs). As the pants are quite bright, all you really need is simple white tee on top (you can either dress it up for work or keep it casual like me). I paired my pants with this white boxy crop top (which also happens to be a key item this summer). It's light and breezy and goes so nicely with the cropped pants. Cropped on Cropped.
What would you wear with these pants?

I spotted a new Orla Kiely range on Miss Moss this morning and as usual fell in love. I've blogged about her quite a lot because she always displays her clothes in the coolest ways. They always have a cool theme and a well thought out set. Spring 2014 is no different with an obvious Moonrise Kingdom inspiration.
This range is beautiful but has very "thrifted" feel to it. It feels like you could almost find all these items in a Hospice shop that you'll need to adjust here and there. I know this sounds bad but I actually mean it in a really good way. I like this range a lot. I love the berets, buttons and high socks. I wish I could dress like this every day, like a little explorer in the concrete jungle.

I just love these beautiful pictures from Hansel from Basel's SS 13 look book. It makes me excited for spring! When we got back from overseas we found that our Jasmine had already started blooming! Now we just need warmer weather so we open up the doors and the windows to let the wonderful smell in.
Who's ready for winter to be over already?
Here's a little more about this brand:
Hansel from basel is continually inspired by the small details of our everyday environment. "We couldn't resist the lush green foliage, poppy florals, and brilliant hues of bougainvillea densely scattered around our los angeles neighborhood. Kelly green, mustard, and fuchsia are important colors repeated throughout the collection and as we like to say, our socks and tights are in full bloom!'
