Another weekend came, I casually walked the streets of Durban as I would when searching for unique finds around town. Somehow this weekend Durbanites got some form of a memo; look cooler than most you'll sure stand out. Elihle in mars presents to you street fashion at it most raw form.

So this past Saturday I finally went to Durban's very own vintage fair,the I heart Market which is a market for vintage suppliers,second hand clothing sellers and fashion lovers. This mini fashion market takes place every first Saturday of the month. It serves for pretty much everyone from fashionistas who want to find unique clothing items and accessories to families who want to spend a day out because you can also find some food stalls there plus the restaurants that Moses Mabhida has.
I saw a lot of lovely items there from leather bags and cases to accessories to die for. If you love owning exclusive items which also come at low prices you should visit the I heart Market.
Well pictures tell better stories than words or maybe that's what I want to believe.

The autumn '13 collection gives us a lot of camouflage prints,(G4Life)beanie hats and all sorts of street inspired pieces. I must say River Island couldn't have chosen a better person to collaborate with, she knows what style is and now she's giving that to the public and all those who wish to look somewhat like the superstar herself. She came to the event rocking her own line head to toe with a bold almost electric blue lipstick and obviously a new hairstyle.
Here some pictures from the party and some of my personal favorite outfits.

the sky; in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live,
what is happening" -Coco Chanel
Indeed Coco cannot be disputed on such utterances. In today's world
fashion has been snatched by the mediocre citizen from the gutters.
These rebels are taking inspiration from past eras and eras yet to
come. It is these rebels better known as "the cool kids" that have
transformed street fashion. It’s no longer about the rich and elite
attending shows where they'll see clothes which would only be worn by
Street fashion is about that compelling energy that comes with the
infusion of aspects from multiple eras.
The one style I have been spotting in the streets has been the 90s
Grunge trend with an infusion of vintage pieces and a hippie spirit to
round it all. It is with this trend that the youth is making
statements of non-conformity to society's norms and traditions.
Finding new ways to redefine "normal" in this age. Creating a world of
acceptance no matter who you are and where you from because no one can
be considered eccentric with every individual making their own mark
with one trend at a time.
mash jackets, unique sneakers (more specifically Nike Air Max)
African printed accessories, cut off shorts, bandannas, chunky gold
chains, backpacks, styling beanies, dungarees and more importantly
flannel shirts which are hardly worn 'cause they're mostly used as a
way of layering by tying them around the waist.
street look that creates a vehement expression that makes those who
are narrow minded frown at the sight of these fashion rebels.
