I may be resistant to trends because they are impractical and detrimental to one’s finances but there are some trends I am obsessed with and that make sense. The deconstructed shirt is one such trend. I have been wanting to try it out since I discovered it. I love shirts and actually wish I had more shirts in my wardrobe. Aside from dresses, shirts are my go-to on days I don’t want to think too much about what I’m going to wear. Shirts can be styled in three different ways;

Our lives get so busy and we’re constantly on the go that we forget that some time out is actually needed and is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Two months ago, I did the unexpected and asked my boss for leave – two months unpaid leave. Two months is a long time to go without earning a salary but I knew something had to give. I was either going to suffer being broke for a while or work myself to a mental breakdown – the former seemed

As I grow older and no doubt wiser, I find that I give a lot more thought to how I dress and how I’m perceived by the way that I dress. This is something that didn’t bother me so much until my late twenties and more so now that I’m 30. When your friends are getting married and having babies, you know your days of dressing sexy are over or are they? What does it mean to dress your age? Are there certain items of clothing you can’t wear once

Ah, autumn is here, and soon it will be winter. It’s darker, it’s colder, the leaves are a beautiful mix of gold and rust and it’s the perfect time for a wardrobe update. This is my favourite time of the year style wise. You don’t have to try very hard to look uber stylish during the colder seasons, just throw on a jacket, maybe even a scarf and boots and you look elegant. And of course, Superbalist has delivered the ultimate Autumn/Winter jacket collection for the season by style queens

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’m not usually one to follow trends but there are quite a few that I’m loving at the moment and fishnet stocking is one of them. Ever since this trend resurfaced sometime last year, I knew I had to own a pair. I searched high and low for them in South Africa but none of the major stores like The Lot, Top Shop, H&M or Zara stocked them so I ended up ordering from ASOS UK which was not a very good experience. Based on my experience, I doubt I’ll ever

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

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

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
