The Little Foxes

Why, hello there. It's been a while.
Exams are over for most of us in the Cape & the kids at Thrift have had some free time.
So, we took photographs whilst frolicking in the woods.
The shoot features Somerset Westian beauties Peach Cronje, Morgan Wolf, Mischka Langeveldt & Alice Steele.

Have a peek- THESE ARE ONLY A FEW OF THE PICS, follow our link to our Facebook friend page, add us to see more & then give us a shout if you're keen to purchase any Thrift things

OH, I almost forgot. Check out this BLOG by one of our Thrift models, Alice Steele. It's pretty darn fantastic, you'll fall in love with her.

A Gentleman Is Simply a Patient Wolf ~ Lana Turner

Last week I posted a little something about the shoes many girls dreams are made of, however, this week's post is for the boykies. There has always been something about a man who has the ability to put an outfit together seemingly effortlessly, and even more enticing is a man who has good taste in shoes. After stumbling upon some proper authentic vintage & vintage inspired kicks, I felt compelled to share their Italian leathery goodness with you kids.

The Oxford/Brogue. 1600s
This shoe is proper old, originating in Scotland & Ireland in the late sixteenth century. The prices vary, but the third pair (handmade suede wingtip brogues) costs just about
R840 on ebay (shipping incl.)

The Chelsea/Dealer boot. 1820
The Chelsea boot was designed in the Victorian era - horse riding boot and also part of the 1960 mod scene. The black suede John Spencer boot (fourth pic) is selling for around 
R1230 (Shipping incl) on ebay.

The Loafer. 1930
These shoes started appearing in the mid 1930s in Norway. The pair on the left is selling for
+- R580 (shipping incl) on ebay.

The Winkle Picker. 1950
1950 rock & roll fans wore these.
They cost about R700 on ebay

Bob Dylan used to wear these guys/probably still does.

1. J-crew. 2. Calvin Klein. 3. Ebay no-name guys.

Some Skoens Available at Country Road, Right Now.

I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for all of these shoes for you guys.
hand cut v-necks & and extreme vests with custom Thrift concept prints.
