Afraid of Mice

July 12, 2011
Walking down Long Street last week, I was happy to discover a new boutique selling a wonderful collection of hand picked vintage designer pieces. Afraid of Mice is such a lovely space, it’s light, bright and airy and you won’t find a spot of dust like your usual second hand shop. The pieces are all on trend and affordable too considering that they are designer pieces and not likely to be found anywhere else in South Africa. These are all ‘the clothes you wish your mother had kept for you’, so true!

    In response to the phrase about mom keeping the clothes for me – in my case, sadly if she did, i would not fit them. But it is a lovely way of describing the nostalgic trend clothes.
