Ah, autumn is here, and soon it will be winter. It’s darker, it’s colder, the leaves are a beautiful mix of gold and rust and it’s the perfect time for a wardrobe update. This is my favourite time of the year style wise. You don’t have to try very hard to look uber stylish during the colder seasons, just throw on a jacket, maybe even a scarf and boots and you look elegant. And of course, Superbalist has delivered the ultimate Autumn/Winter jacket collection for the season by style queens

I don’t like being called a fashion blogger, I prefer the term, style blogger. The reason is because a fashion blogger is more about fashion and trends and a style blogger is a broader term which encompasses both fashion and style. A style blogger isn’t obsessed with getting the latest and trendiest thing, they are rather concerned with personal style, knowing how to dress for your body shape and breaking the boundaries of fashion. I am by no means a breaker of boundaries but I can say, I know how to

I’m not usually one to follow trends but there are quite a few that I’m loving at the moment and fishnet stocking is one of them. Ever since this trend resurfaced sometime last year, I knew I had to own a pair. I searched high and low for them in South Africa but none of the major stores like The Lot, Top Shop, H&M or Zara stocked them so I ended up ordering from ASOS UK which was not a very good experience. Based on my experience, I doubt I’ll ever

I rarely attend weddings but when I do, I make sure I wear the best. Deciding on what to wear, as a guest to a wedding can be quite nerve-wracking. I never want to be under-dressed to a wedding, it’s just not a good look. When you’re invited to a wedding, you most likely know many months’ in advance, minimum of one month, so you have plenty of time to save to buy the perfect outfit if you have nothing suitable in your wardrobe. Showing up in a simple outfit

It’s Valentine’s month and what better time to talk about love? Love is a beautiful thing and arguably the best feeling in the world. Everyone wants love but not everyone is fortunate enough to experience it. There is a reason why movies like The Notebook, Titanic and The Holiday to name a few are so popular. Although love isn’t just portrayed in the movies, it is alluded to in many of the books we read and in the songs we listen to. Love is fantastic when it is good, but

I’ve never really been one to make a fuss over Valentine’s Day, even when I was in a relationship, and now that I’m single, Valentine’s Day sucks a little. Cue the endless romantic movies and love songs playing on the radio and on television, the incessant messages to get 50% off lingerie and or buy a free box of chocolates when you buy flowers before the 13th of February. For us, single gals, Valentine’s Day is a reminder that you’re alone and nobody loves you, at least not in a romantic

Last weekend, I had the absolute greatest pleasure of working at the Littlegig 2017 festival, fashion concept store. Littlegig is an all-inclusive 24-hour festival with everything most humans love; music, food tastings, fine art, fashion and design. This year’s festival was held at Wiesenhorf farm in Stellenbosch, 28  – 29 January 2017. I most probably wouldn’t have had the pleasure of attending the festival if not for the fact that the company I’m employed by does PR for Littlegig. During a phone conversation with Georgia Black, former fashion magazine writer/editor and

Chefs, an eatery in Cape Town, located on the corner of St John’s Street has recently added an option of dinner to its former, lunch only menu. This canteen style spot launched in October 2016 with a fresh concept of three meals which are loaded onto the Chefs website so you can decide on what you want to eat before you get there and place your order. No booking, no waiters, no menus and most fun of all, no tipping! You simply choose your order and your meal is brought

Few things are more arresting than a well-dressed woman. A woman who dresses well is one to be taken seriously because she takes pride in her appearance and how she is perceived by the world. This woman most likely takes the same amount of care and pride in other non-sartorial areas of her life as well. Wearing a great outfit provides a lift on a hectic day; armour for that tough meeting and the confidence to walk into a room full of strangers. The way in which we dress says

I have known many single women who feel a sense of shame for being single. This feeling of shame and inadequacy can be blamed on societal pressures especially within the African community. You are deemed less of a woman if you are not in a relationship. God forbid you are in your late twenties to early thirties and have no marriage prospects, then you need deliverance because clearly without a man, your life has no meaning. Well, I’m calling it bull shit! Times have changed, gone are the days when
