Look Book

When it comes to dressing, most working women are looking for convenience. We want an outfit that can transform from day to night in seconds. We want to go from the boardroom to a night out on the town. Is there an outfit that can do that?  Yes, there is. In fact, there are many. We often waste time and precious brain power asking ourselves “What am I going to wear?” That decision to pick an outfit can be as quick as two minutes or a long and drawn out 45

Yes, keeping up appearances does come at a cost, just look at #visabae. This young Zimbabwean lady living in the UK asked her viewers/subscribers on Youtube to donate some money towards her visa application. Rutendo Tichiwangani aka RLT on Instagram and Youtube shared a 30-minute sob story on her Youtube channel, I have one month left, essentially asking people to donate  GBP 2300 in order for her to apply for indefinite stay in the UK. GBP 2300 is R39 000. In naira, that is an equivalent of  N 1 166

It’s not the first time I’ve styled my shirt the “wrong way”. That is, back-to-front and I don’t think it will be last. There is one reason why women often feel like they don’t have enough clothes in their wardrobe even though they have plenty. That reason is, not knowing how to style. If you don’t know how to style, it doesn’t matter if you have all the clothes in the world, it will never be enough. Styling is an art but you can learn it. The first step is

Have you ever heard someone say, “dark skin women can’t wear pink?”  It’s a lie! Growing up, I was taught to believe my skin colour limited the choices of colour I could wear. Red, blue, orange and such were colours I thought I had to steer clear of, colours I adored and was drawn to. Until one day, I dared to challenge this rulebook and I, for the life of me don’t know who came up with such nonsense. I don’t remember exactly when it was that  I saw the

Are people still colour-blocking in 2018? The answer is, Yes! This 2007 trend is back, and in today’s post, I’m sharing tips on how to colour-block with finesse. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I LOVE colour. There’s just something about the colour purple, orange, green,  yellow or any other bright colour that grabs my attention. Colour-blocking is just another one of my favourite trends. I always say I’m not into trends but every once in a while, there is that one trend that I’m keen on. Colour-blocking

I’ve always loved vintage shopping. I even wrote an article on the difference between vintage and second-hand clothing which you can read here. I have a love for clothes. It doesn’t matter how many clothes I have,  I can ever have enough. What woman does? Lately, I’ve been a little more obsessed with vintage clothes than I usually am. Observatory and Long street in Cape Town have some of the best vintage stores and every time I’m in Cape Town, you’ll find me scouring the racks for some vintage gems.

Promoting self-love is important to me, particularly during this month of love when it is so easy for some to become depressed about their relationship status. Why am I alone? What is wrong with me? These are some of the questions you may have asked yourself but you need to S-T-O-P! Not being in a relationship with another person does not mean that there is something wrong with you or that you will die alone. When you feel like there is a void deep within that you need to fill

It’s probably the third year that I’m going to be single and alone on Valentine’s Day but who’s counting? Valentine’s Day is another day of the year in my world. Single or in a relationship, I’m not fussed about it. But, let’s be honest, if you’re single, it sucks just a little when your colleagues at work keep talking about their valentine’s day plans with their significant other. Or when they have flowers and chocolates sent to work by an admirer while your plans are looking as bleak as a

Look 1 Wearing:  skirt and blouse – H&M  sunglasses – Poshkollect shoes – Zara  Let me start by wishing you a happy new year. May you razzle, sparkle and dazzle this year, 2018. We’ve all heard of ‘New Year, New me’ but what we almost never hear is new wardrobe although this should go hand in hand, don’t you think? How are you going to claim new me with an outdated wardrobe? You can’t, you just can’t! If you claim New Year, new me then you have to add new wardrobe to the

The bomber jacket is one of those perennial fashion trends. It’s like a revolving door – on trend every season, each year. For this reason, the bomber jacket is a must-have for any fashionista worth her salt. I love any item of clothing that can be styled in different ways. Half the fun of styling is being able to create different looks with one item. The bomber jacket is really a fashion MVP. You can wear it in the summer, spring,  autumn and maybe even winter but the key is
