    Out & About: A visit to Liebermann’s

    While I might have been a semi-conscious human for much of the 70’s, I seem to have managed to absorb that era pretty deeply into my being. I mean, I do macrame, pottery, and I’m learning to weave, too, ffs!  This probably explains why I was happy to spend a solid hour of my Tuesday …

  • We’re still Skinny . . . but so much BIGGER!

    In 2011, I opened a shop at 201 Bree St. You may already know the tale, but if not, and you’re up for a history lesson, read more here. That narrow little shop has served us very well, but six years later, Bree St has grown up a lot, and so has Skinny laMinx, so it’s …

I dropped in at …

    Friends & Neighbours: LIM

    I moved to Cape Town in 1996, and the LIM store on Kloof Street has always been a fixture in my neighbourhood. It took me a few years before I felt sophisticated enough to go inside, but these days I’m SO sophisticated, I’m in there all the time 😉 When putting together our 2016 LookBook for …
