Classic, effortless and versatile; we've got a lot of love for the trusty shirt dress! We spent the morning with one of our #KITRIgirls Thandi Maqubela in her beautiful London home to chat style, work and everything in between!

I'm a Commercial Lawyer, working at a Big 4 Firm in the city having moved over from practicing Corporate Law in South Africa ten years ago. I'm in a very lucky position of enjoying the work I do which is probably buoyed by my long-standing love affair with London! In terms of fun, I love travelling - ideally to anywhere hot with a sandy beach in reach!

There's a real focus on trying to live a sustainable life as possible, making adjustments where we can. As a self confessed clothes lover I'm trying to do this by investing in pieces I can wear confidently in the corporate environment as well as at the weekend where I'm a bit more relaxed. I've recently taken to wearing dresses I can layer with existing pieces in my wardrobe which pleasingly gives me a variety of looks to work with throughout the seasons.
I'm a firm believer that you can't find a more flattering silhouette than a statement sleeve and a cinched waist which KITRI does so well! 

I'm partial to timeless pieces that I can carry through the years with me. Interestingly, I've noticed my style veer towards the look my Mom use to wear back in the '70s - demure (but not boring) belted mid-dresses, injecting my own style by pairing with knee-high boots, killer heels or a statement sneaker.
