I’m excited! My two favourite South African online retail brands are joining forces.  Two is becoming one.  Say what?! Some of you may have heard, Superbalist and Spree are getting married! Queue the angels humming. Yes, Spree and Superbalist will officially be a couple in early October. Spree will be taking on the name Superbalist instead of meeting in the middle with ‘Sprebalist ‘- we know who wears the pants! 😉 As it turns out, 51%  of the company will be owned by Media 24 (Spree’s current shareholders) while Takealot Group (Superbalist

Figuring out what to wear can be a nightmare. Most days, I am pretty certain about what I want to wear to any occasion, be it to work or a social event. But there are also those days that I change my mind about an outfit at least 5 times. I hate those days, it literally ruins my mood. Thankfully it doesn’t happen too often. Work in itself is stressful, figuring out what to wear doesn’t have to be. I tend to lay out what I’m going to wear to work

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. Look 1 Pumps – Sissy Boy on Zando Look 2 Skirt – MrP Heels – Legit Look 3 Palazzo pants – Jaymodiva Sunglasses – Zulu Lookbook Jacket worn in all 3 looks by Judith Atelier on

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?
