Hello, Cape Town

‘I compare myself to silk. People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer from a gunshot.’ – C Joybell C

In a last minute move to the city of Cape Town, I have joined 2nd Take luxury brand secondhand retailer as a content writer. A part of the digital media production team, I will be overseeing the creation and curating of copy inclusive of SEO and PPC. The role comes after the work I did with Minna Tau Fashion House.

It goes without saying that Cape Town is a different market compared to Ladysmith or even the city of Durban and it comes with it’s own unique set of challenges and opportunities, a particular environment for a particular skillset and with projections, research and goals it is set out to be a beneficial change for me and what I do.

Everything I’m wearing is thrifted from a second-hand high-end fashion store hosting luxury brands like Tom Ford, DVF,Coach, DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, Guess, Versace, GAP and more. Total cost for the outfit, including over-sized blazer summed up to just a little over R2000.

Life is a pretty long journey and I've found that telling our stories helps us remember why it's all worth it. I was born in Durban & have been blessed enough to live in a variety of South African towns and cities. & to travel abroad to places where some of my favourite stories were based. In my spare time you can find me horse riding, hosting brunches or dinner, baking or enjoying rose on a vineyard.
