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.

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.

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
I am so happy to hear that Mr Price will be opening in Australia. I love Mr Price and I think their clothes are trendy and affordable. To me Mr Price is like H&M or Primark. I buy Mr Price clothing because their clothes are stylish and reasonably priced but I wouldn’t shop my entire there simply because I like quality and I also wouldn’t want to walk down the street and have someone dressed exactly like me.
