Edgy Berry #MakoyaStyle (Week two)

Hi Beautiful readers!

I’ve decided to weave the berry theme into all my #MakoyaStyle posts since I absolutely adore these heels. The colour is so rich- purple plum and in tune with Autumn. Makoya, which loosely translated means “the real thing” is an appropriate name, since the store stocks top name brands and at affordable prices, especially during the flash sales.

Wendy Vesela-Ntimbani, owner and founder of Makoya Brands is a woman who insists on excellence, this was displayed in her hands on approach when my “parcel” went AWOL last week. It was delivered to the incorrect address by the couriers and the way Wendy handled the whole debacle was admirable. Taking ownership, as she realises that her reputation could be tarnished by a third party service provider, she followed through until the issue had been resolved. 

Today’s outfit is more edgy incorporating leather and denim, two of my favourite textures. With Autumn upon us (although it’s been raining so much, it could be mistaken for a Cape Town Winter) layering is the best way to combat the cold. I have therefore layered an old flannel plaid shirt with a denim vest to complete the grunge look, however mixing it up with these luxurious heels puts a different spin on the ensemble.
