salon 58 soirees

Last month, I headed to the Bare soiree at Salon 58 with my friend Alison. It was a fabulous morning! If you haven’t yet been to one of Jackie’s soirees, do yourself a favour and get a ticket for Noir, which is happening this Saturday. You can buy from webtickets, here.

Here are a few snaps from the Bare soiree…

All furniture and layout design was by Okasie

Loved the M.A.C presentation – the make-up artist (can’t remember her name!) was really funny and captivating

Tools!

Jackie spoke on how to build your wardrobe with the essential basics: Breton stripes, denim jacket, wide-leg trousers, sneaker loafers, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, white shirt, trench, pencil skirt, black heels, and of course lots of scarves. Loved this!

Maybe Corpaci made for a beautiful model

A talk by the owner of Santa Maria Novella – plus a chance to sniff and spray all these exquisite perfumes and potpourri

Me, wearing my inherited vintage fur (it was John-Louis’ grandmother’s fur, made by his grandfather!)

We all got to choose a flower and tie it to the installation in the dining hall

The most amazing food by Schoon de Companje – baguettes, seed wreaths, salmon gravadlax, cultured butter, couer a la creme, tea eggs, sweet and sour leeks and the most delicious chocolate terrine which I definitely had too much of (all washed down with Graham Beck Brut Zero!)

The long table where we all sat to feast

Too good!

the travelling vintage suitcase

Last week, we packed all our vintage stock into a beautiful old vintage suitcase which Liza inherited from her husband’s granny, and went to pay a visit to the Marie Claire offices in Cape Town.

One of our most prolific and fabulous clients works there and we wanted an excuse to pop in and show off our latest stock. She was so excited, she yelled for the whole team to come and forage for treasures, and we were able to pair some of our favourite pieces with their forever homes.

We love seeing beautiful vintage items go to people that adore them and appreciate them for what they are.

This lucky dress is taking a trip with its new owner to Paris next month

A match made in vintage heaven

It gave us the travelling vintage suitcase brainwave, too. If you have an office or a group of friends who love vintage, but don’t always have the time or inclination to go and hunt for it, then we can come to you! If you are in and around Cape Town…

Send a mail to findus@copyink.co.za and we’ll chat 🙂

Yours in vintage

So far I have loaded the handbags and a bunch of gorgeous high-waist, cropped vintage pants that are so hot for autumn/winter. This afternoon I am going to load more jackets, dresses and skirt suits.

Yours in vintage!
