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
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
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
