Vintage and The City Launch


Hello Lovelies!

Last Friday I attended the launch of the prettiest and delightful store on Long Street, Vintage and The City. Whilst it was possibly one of the hottest days of the year, and I felt like I had melted completely, I managed to shower and get dressed up for the event. 

After looking frantically for parking in the bustling Long Street (an almost impossible task on a Friday night), I made my way to the store, passing many party people unwinding at sidewalk cafes. The sights and sounds of Long Street mixed with overwhelming heat reminded me of what I would imagine a scorching New York Friday evening in bohemian Soho would be like.

Upon arrival we were welcomed by the absolutely stunning Natalie Bekker, and enjoyed some  flavoured tea served by the Tea Merchant with the most divine cupcakes by Lady Cupcake. (Setting the scene perfectly for a vintage tea party.)  

The store is owned by the charming, Junaid, environmentalist turned vintage store owner, which was aptly named after his favourite series, Sex and the City of course!

We were treated to Nespresso, made by the beautiful Thandie Kupe, who was a breath of fresh air in the stifling heat. The evening ended with a lovely gift box, complete with Rain voucher and products,  Tea Merchant tea and Hello Pretty voucher. 

It was really great to meet everyone, and look forward to Junaid and Zahrah’s Vintage Tea Parties in the future. (By then my shopping break would hopefully be over!)

I chose a lightweight vintage inspired maxi dress paired with a pair of last season Madison heels.
