I discovered Anthea’s blog, Embracingstyle.co.za one Sunday afternoon and fell in love with this fashion blogger’s chic style. She agreed to share some of her favourite summer fashion items and must-haves with us.
Tell us more about yourself – who are you, where are you from, what do you do for a living?
I am a twenty-something Capetonian. I work as a software developer. I love fashion and personal style and so I blog about it. So basically I am part nerd, part fashion addict.
What inspired you to start blogging about fashion?
I got into fashion blogging by accident. I had some time on my hands and I Googled “Fashion”. I then found so many inspiring blogs that I quickly got addicted to. I decided to start my own blog soon after that because it would give me a way to enjoy many things I love.
What fashion blogs do you follow?
I follow many blogs and can never keep up with all the new posts in my reader. My local favourites are Glossary, Bobbylicious, Miss Moss and Miss Molly.
What would you call your personal style?
I would say casual and sometimes trendy.
Where do you like to shop?
I like buying online because it is convenient. There are so many South African vintage sellers who sell goods online so I try to follow what they have in stock. I also go into Mr Price and Woolworths regularly, and I am a market addict.
What are your top five must-haves for summer 2011 / 2012?
1. Wedges galore
2. Slouchy crop tops
3. High waisted shorts/skirts
4. Maxi skirts
5. Floppy hats
What are you favourite colour(s) for summer?
I am very smitten with pastel colours at the moment and will probably be for the whole of summer.
