There's no denying it, Cape Town is a stylish place filled with passionate fashionistas eager to showcase their styles via the most recent avenue: the blessed blog.
While you might think that so many stylistas taking up this pastime might water down the genre, the opposite is true. We went sifting through the many urls and found 11 blogs that offer their own take on the style scene. From personal style diaries and celebration of local talent to odes to vintage fashion, these blogs each have a unique angle and attitude towards fashion.
