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

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

It’s time to say goodbye to the knee-high boots and hello to knee-high heels. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you need to forsake the knee-high look. I have been obsessed with knee-high heels ever since I saw them on one of the Kardashians. This trend is slowly but gradually taking the place of its cousin, the gladiator sandals – which can be worn flat or high. A pair of black knee-high heels is the most versatile colour you can have in your wardrobe because not only do they go

Christmas is over, and the New Year is just a few days away, which means, it’s time to partee! Stand out this holiday season in these top 6 party looks – some old, some new. 1. The Little Black Dress We all know and love the LBD (little black dress). Whether you’re thin, medium-sized or overweight, this look suits anyone and is perfect for any party scene.

A month ago, I received a media invite to the Bay Harbour Market in Hout Bay  to “experience the vibrancy and creative spirit of Cape Town’s most vibrant market”, the invite said. Having never been to the market, my curiosity was piqued and I decided to RSVP to the event to see what it was all about. The Bay Harbour Market is located on the water’s edge in the old authentic part of the Hout Bay Harbour, in a refurbished fish factory. The market is an eclectic mix of fashion,

As an African girl, I grew up wearing African prints. It was by no means my day-to-day choice of clothing but it was something I and every Nigerian, male and female wore to weddings, funerals, birthdays and sometimes just around the house in the form of a caftan. African print was considered to be more traditional than fashionable back then but things changed in the mid-2000’s when a few fashion designers started using the fabric  in their collection.

I attended a friend’s traditional wedding in Fickburg, last week Saturday which fell on Heritage Day. I can’t say I know much about traditional weddings since I’ve only been to two with this one being my second. I didn’t know what to expect but I was prepared to be entertained. Prior to the day, the bride who is half Yoruba and Sotho chose a fabric as is the norm in the Yoruba culture and then sold it as ‘aso ebi’ to her friends and family. Aso-ebi directly translated means “uniform outfit of

I turned 30 years old last week, 16 September and I celebrated this incredible milestone with a small group of girlfriends at Pigalle restaurant in Melrose Arch. The dress code for the evening was 1920’s style inspired because no other era says elegance, glamour and fun quite like a 1920’s outfit, right? Since I turned 26, I’ve been petrified of turning 30 – it just sounds old!  By the time you are 30, you should have gotten all your shit together. You should be a ‘boss lady’, home owner, married

Hurray, spring is here which means it’s time to spruce up your wardrobe! The weather may still be a bit chilly and dreary from time to time but there is no reason for your wardrobe to stay stuck in winter. Say goodbye to dark, neutral coloured clothing and give your wardrobe a much needed lift with bright, floral patterns this spring. When I think of spring, the first thing that pops to mind are florals. Floral clothing never goes out of style, it is all about embracing femininity and having
