My my Dark Horse

In May, I did a post on Dark Horse, a fantastic furniture and apparel store here in Cape Town. You can see that post here. I have always admired the shop, its wares, and the owner and designer, Lise du Plessis. And so, I am thrilled to share some photos of my new Daily Postman Bag with you! :) I bought it online and was able to personalize it; everything from the colour of the bag, to the type of leather on the base! It is all in the details and I can now tell you as the owner of one, this bag is beautifully hand-crafted.I am so excited to use it as it fits my 13 inch laptop perfectly, as well as having a section in the front for sketch books!! :) And look how cool it is!!

You can get yourself one on their online store or visit the shop at 83 Kloofnek Road, Tamboerskloof, Cape Town 8001, or mail them at

And while i'm talking about Dark Horse, here is the leather heart necklace that I was pining after as soon as I saw it at their opening.. and my wonderful boyfriend bought it for me!! :) Happy Stace.
