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

To celebrate the launch of  its high winter collection – Fall for Winter, Zando is giving one lucky thediscerningstylist reader a R500 voucher. The Fall for Winter collection boasts a militant inspired edge, curated to bring out the bold and celebrate the cold with its varied stylish pieces. The collection relies heavily on natural architectural balance provided by the shoot landscape. “Structural minimalism with a naturally lush setting established the perfect foundation for our Winter 2016 shoot. The texturally rich backdrop lent itself to each trend without disruption, enabling each look to

Cavalli

No not Roberto Cavalli, hopefully some day soon – Cavalli Stud Farm . The only adjective I can think of to describe this venue is quite simply, exquisite! The landscape is just glorious and the only place that completely impresses me on the scale of Cavalli is Delaire Graff. Although, having been to both venues an equal number of times, the jury is still out on which of the two I prefer. At the moment, I am more inclined to say I favour Cavalli over Delaire Graff but only because of the shop

Is there a difference between vintage and second hand clothing? Yes there is! I’ve used these two interchangeably in the past but they are NOT the same! And now that I know better I think it’s only fair to share that knowledge with you because sharing is caring. Vintage clothing is generally clothing from the 1920’s or 20 years before present day. So any clothing from 1996 or older would be considered vintage to us now. Then there is “vintage style” clothing which is an imitation – can be brand

I am my most stylish when I am with my friend, Shalamar. We have been friends for close to 11 years and she is one of the rare people I occasionally ask for styling advice because she is one stylish lady! Don’t get me wrong, I am pretty darn stylish myself. I am the discerningstylist after all! As a matter of fact, my first words as a toddler were Prada instead of Dada and Miu Miu instead of Mummy. On a serious note, I hardly ever take style advice from anyone.

I’ve always been curious to know if blondes do indeed have more fun so I went the lighter route with my hair. Deep down I knew it wasn’t true that blondes have more fun which is why when my dad asked me after seeing me in this top, “do blondes have more fun?” my immediate answer was a resounding “NO!”. The truth is confident women have more fun. Confidence can be aggrandized through social, academic and or professional status. It can also be enhanced through external factors like one’s style,

Happy New Year beautiful people! Yay to my first post of the year! I’m beyond thrilled and grateful to have this platform to share my love of clothes, style and beauty. It has been incredibly hot in the Western Cape – even for summer – and so I try to wear as little as possible. This past Saturday, my friend and I made plans to go to the beach and instead of wearing a swimwear, I opted for this casual and summery outfit of shorts, crochet half top and a

I was invited to the Fabiani Spring/Summer 2015 Collection at Crossley & Webb in Gardens this past week, Thursday 10 2015 and even though I don’t do menswear, my curiosity got the better of me. In the body of the invite sent, I read “It promises to be a stylish evening boasting Fabiani menswear, a glittering array of cars, and the clink of Chivas filled glasses”, and it was exactly that and more… The light and delicious nibbles, flow of champagne, whiskey, vintage cars and trendy crowd made for the perfect
