A sale by any other name ....

Girls Like Boys ... trees, webs and then some

The fab dolls at the The Dollhouse Clothing recently did a rad photoshoot and used some goodies from us. Besides being super cool and being able to make us laugh .... did we mention the Idols-esque voice coming from one the dolls? We heart, heart, heart them so much! Show them some love on Facebook and checkout their clothing line ....

The vintage and retro clothing scene in Cape Town is very exciting at the moment. We are starting to see people doing their own clothing lines and bringing out their own products - that's Cape Town for ya! Vintage and retro is just the beginning darlings ....

Old Street - it's a lifestyle choice ...

We have been very busy ...

Exciting times ahead! Samples are in for our very own genuine leather backs made in Cape Town of course and our online magazine will go live in early July.

Our Super Sale will take place on Saturday, 30 June from 9am till 3pm - we have a surprise pop-up store and we'll have the usual - bargains galore and clothing that will allow you to set trends .... following is so 1997 isn't it?

A lil bit of faux fur goes a long way

We recently went on a major faux fur mission - from vintage faux fur coats to headbands, which later morphed into reversible ones, giving everyone that leopard print fix they need. We also did a few in grey - more daring to wear but def our fav! Nothing says 'From Russia With Love' more than this darn headband.

We've moved our faux fur addiction to bags now - so stay tuned for cute lil faux fur sling bags in the next week. Here are some pics. Our lovely friend at Vintage Junkies (Zahrah) modelled the headbands - she's addicted to them too and tadaaaa here are the pics.

The best part is seeing a finished product. To have an idea and then a few days later seeing what you've created = priceless! Life is too short to be a wallflower! Let's deck Cape Town in faux fur :-)

Headbands are R50 and R60 for the reversible. Drop us an email to or call us on 078 257 0355.

Wish I Wore Wednesdays - 23 May

We haven't blogged since last week .... *bad Old Street*

Quite a bit has been happening - we're working on our own clothing line, more of our uber cool retro fade cropped tees, more accessories, faux fur coats and some other delicious bits.

The last pic is our winner - Nwabisa Noba-t Nobatana from East London. We chose the dress because she's one cool chick AND because adding some suede hi-tops and a cropped leather jacket would make it oh so Old Street!

Check out our Facebook page next Wednesday and send in a pic. It's fun and you get a lil prize from us:

Wish I Wore Wednesdays

Old Street's WIWW

We kicked off our 'Wish I Wore Wednesdays' today - send in a pic of an outfit you wish you were wearing and if it tickles our fancy, then we'll send you a gift. It's important to develop ones own personal style but it's just as important to be inspired by what's out there. 

Take a look at what was sent in today and BE INSPIRED :-) Get out of the box - it's so 2001 isn't it? 

We honestly love each outfit! But we were feeling oh so bored today and in need of a holiday, so we
 went for the drama in Sarah Murphy's pic. Every girl should have a dress like that, even if we only get to 
wear it to Checkers!
