Just perfect with high-waisted skirts, shorts and paper-bag waist trousers, the crop top is not reserved for summer. The surest way to update your fave denim jeans, and you don't have to show skin, layer over a tonal fitted (and semi-tucked-in) Tee or shirt. I found such an awesome variety at The Lot (who stock Motel too: the floral one below is R380, Motel)the polka dot crop jumper above R599 and the snowflake and hearts cropped sweater R329 [last one below] (PS I found them all in store on the 18th June) For more info call 021 4243846
if it's the prettiest vintage dresses you're after (from R280) you need look no further than Babette's fashion label. She has such an eye for retro style dresses, shoes and shirts, I could just live in her label. Visit her blog too
