The past week, I've gone to quite a few shops in Cape Town. And believe me, there are a lot of clothing shops and boutiques. I honestly think any reader who has been to Cape Town, would agree with me.
Without going to the usual stores, during a visit to Cape Town, I've decided to go to the shops I'd usually pass. In Canal Walk, I've stumbled upon the perfect example of vintage edge with a dash of grunge and glamour. With clothing divided into a male and female section, I introduce to you, The Lot. If I could, I'd buy everything. I am in love with this store. Not only do the clothes compel to my taste, but the decor as well. Gosh, it has definitely made its way to my most favorite store's list (not that I have one). At The Lot, you could get anything from formal dresses, to everyday dresses. Accessories, leather shorts, sexy jackets, jerseys, skirts, and so on. If I could describe the vibe that it gave me, with an artist, I'd use Florence and the Machine, Walk the Moon and Gotye (If you don't know any of these singers/groups – where have you been these last few months?)
Do yourself a favour, and visit The Lot next time you decide to go to Cape Town. I've only been to the one in Canal Walk. It's very big and spacey. Quite comfortable if you ask me. You will not be disappointed. Promise! It's situated at 43 Kloof Street according to internet sources, as well as in Canal Walk across from YDE.
You absolutely know you want to. <3
