If you’re reading this, I bet you want to know if wearing red can make you look more attractive and confident? Yes – yes, it can. How?  Red is often associated with love and passion. Ever read a romance novel? red-hot are some of the adjectives used to describe a steamy scene, right? So, when you wear red it can affect the way that you are perceived. It is such a bold colour and you immediately stand out. A red lip, red shoes, red dress all point to someone who

Are you a rebel when it comes to fashion? Do you follow the rules? Or, do you make your own rules? I’m a little bit of both. I follow some rules and then I make some of my own. I’ve always been a stiletto kind of girl. It dates back to my childhood and how I attributed femininity to wearing high heels. Twenty years later, 95% of the shoes in my closet are heels.  I own three pairs of sneakers and that’s about it. Heels aren’t comfortable. Some are but most

Fashion is art. That’s what I think. Much like art, fashion can be a form of self-expression. And even though fashion cannot be displayed in a frame like art, it can be linked to a certain period in time, just like art. International designers, Prada, Oscar De La Renta, Dior and Versace are some of the few designers that have taken the ‘fashion is art’ concept quite literally. From Versace’s 1991 print featuring Warhol’s Marilyn to Prada’s feminist pop art, these designers are taking fashion and art to a whole new

The best and often most difficult part about fashion is styling. Sure you can have all the money in the world but that doesn’t make you a good dresser. What makes a good dresser anyway? Knowing your body, understanding your shape, what suits you and which colours complement each other and your skin tone. Simple enough, huh? When it comes to style versatility is important. How can you wear an outfit multiple times without it looking like a repeat? Or, how can you style a look in multiple ways for

Everyone loves a wardrobe update. Whether it’s needed or wanted there’s just something exciting about new clothes. It becomes a bit embarrassing when your friends know what’s in your wardrobe as well as you do. You find yourself saying “I’m going to wear that pink dress with frills that I wore to Liz’s birthday party and Adeola’s wedding”. Or your tone becomes apologetic when you hear the dreaded question “what are you wearing?” and you say almost begrudgingly, “my black and white dress”. You don’t say much more than that

Are you single and searching? Or, in a relationship but frequently go on date-nights with your man? If your answer is yes to either of these questions then I’ve got T-H-E perfect, sexy date-night outfitS for you. But if you don’t like to show your legs then you might want to give this one a miss – sorry. The assumption is that making an ‘effort’ and looking sexy on a first date makes you look desperate and sends off the wrong signal. But is that really true? I personally think

I really enjoy styling. It feels so fulfilling to be able to style an item of clothing in multiple ways. I’ve styled this jacket by Judith Atelier in 3 Ways. Whether you want to wear it to work, a formal occasion or a night out with the ladies’, there’s a look for each occasion.

I don’t have to wait until Wednesday to wear pink. I wear pink any day I feel like it and lately, it’s been all the time. I have always loved the colour pink but my love for it has become more intense lately.  So much so that if I see anything pink, my instinct is to immediately get it. Okay, enough about me. I want to turn this on you for a second, indulge me. When are you too old wear pink? Are you ever too old to wear pink?

It’s winter over here in South Africa. Some days are cold and my joints hurt and some days you forget it’s winter and the weather is sunny and beautiful. This, of course, makes it easy for me to dorn my summer clothes like this lavender mesh skirt. The mesh trend is currently a favourite of mine. I love anything lace or see-through. It’s kinda sexy, kinda daring, just like me. This skirt actually came with a lavender lining but I removed it for this see-through effect. I have a similar

The pleated skirt is one of my favourite style of skirts to wear. And with the recent drop in temperature, it is the perfect countermeasure to keep your legs warm against the winter chill. Pleated skirts are au courant and popularly worn by celebrities, fashion bloggers and influencers. Bonus? It comes in many different fun colours. If that’s not reason enough to become a fan, here are 6 reasons why the pleated skirt is a sartorial favourite: It creates the illusion of curves If you’re keen to add curves where
