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’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

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

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,

In my previous post I share details of my experience at Salon 58 Awaken Grace. Today’s post is a continuation but here I’m sharing what I wore and what I often think of before choosing an outfit for an occasion. Deciding on what to wear can be very challenging for men and women. ‘What to wear?’ is a question we commonly ask ourselves and others when choosing an outfit for work, gym or even just to go to the shops. Since what I wear plays a role in how confident I

Jackie Burger’s Salon 58 I had the privilege of attending my first ever Jackie Burger soiree, an event that took place last week Saturday, 13 August 2016 at the P.J Olivier Art Centre. The theme for the show was Awaken Grace in celebration of Women’s Month. Jackie Burger is a South African style icon, she was an editor at Elle magazine and holds a lot of clout in the South African fashion industry – she is sort of like the Anna Wintour of South Africa except she is much more experimental in

Sweaters are the easiest and most comfortable way of dressing warm this winter. The weather has been pretty mild, not too cold for winter, so you can get away with wearing two layers underneath your sweater without much need for a coat. A sweater can be worn in multiple ways and for multiple occasions. It’s easy for many of us to complain and say “I have nothing to wear” – it usually isn’t true. There is plenty to wear, the styling inspiration is often what’s lacking. Sweaters are no longer
