Fancy French Cologne Giveaway

the giveaway is now closed. winner to be announced soon.


i have been practically bursting to launch this giveaway thanks to the fantastic ladies at Fancy French Cologne. firstly because shop owners Carly & Christine focus on bringing emerging designers to the fore, especially in their product collaborations with designers in their Entre Nous section (french for “between us”). and secondly because the giveaway has a little something to do with Downton Abbey (!)

Schier Vellies

Schier Shoes has been making velskoen out of Swakopmund, Namibia since 1935. 8 guys make them completely by hand and turn out 20 pairs of vellies a day. of course if you’re a south african you’ll know velskoene well as we all grew up with them – you probably call them vellies or skoens or veldskoene (as i always have). this humble shoe has been enjoying a  fashion revival in the past few years, popping up in all our department stores and being worn by the young & hip. i suppose vellies are to south africans what clogs are to the swedes – people will keep wearing them whether they are cool or not.

Spotlight

i just wanted to highlight some of the wonderful wares from my fantastic sponsors…. if you’re interested in sponsoring drop me a line at diana @ missmoss.co.za!

Lambs Ear Shoes

Lambs Ear Shoes is a shop in Seattle that stocks an amazing range of shoes (amongst other beautiful wares, but i’m pretty taken by the shoes) from designers like a detacher, common projects, dieppa restrepo, steven alan, rachel comey and ld tuttle. you can peruse their range in their online shop and, best of all, they ship internationally. these buckle boots by plomo have my name written all over them.

ASOS SALON

i had to put a devastating end to my love affair with ASOS because having anything shipped into South Africa usually ends up costing a fortune in customs charges* – but if i was living across the pond i’d definitely be snapping up some of these pieces from the ASOS SALON collection
