Look Book

Its been pretty sizzling in Cape Town the past couple of days. Short of going out the house naked, I decided to wear as little as possible but still keep a modicum of decency since I had to be at the office. I was channeling my inner hipster with this ensemble, although the heels are not exactly “hipster”. Be that as it may, my style is not governed by rules. I wear what I want when I want and how I want. Here’s to wishing you a fab weekend, stay cool and

I think more than half my wardrobe consist of dresses. I love dresses; I love clothing that requires little fuss, yet when worn looks like you made an effort. A dress, in my opinion, enhances a woman’s femininity. It adds a certain softness and elegance to your look. From the way it hugs your curves or even when it hangs loosely on your body, it has the ability to seduce and suggest – tastefully of course! Aside from the visual impression, a dress is easily the most comfortable thing to wear.

Anyone who knows me or has taken pictures of me for my blog knows how tightly wound up I get until I’ve had my pictures taken. I generally prefer my pictures taken before I do anything fun because I tend to be somewhat tense and on edge until the picture taking process is complete. This is generally because I’m anxious about  my make-up and lighting; both of which you can’t take for granted when it comes to photography. However, this day was a little different. My friend had come to visit

I work with a stylish group of people. They each have their own unique style and for a style conscious person like myself, I find pleasure in observing how each person’s personality is reflected in the way they dress. I have always been a fan of jeans and tees. It requires minimum fuss and depending on how you style it; you can either pull of a smart or casual look. Last week, two of my colleagues came in to work in identical colour denims and t-shirts and I couldn’t help

Sunset Affair

This is a second outfit worn on the same day as the Saturday I showed my friend around the lovely town of Stellenbosch. I have the most interesting and fabulous friends and one thing I seem to have in common with most of my friends is a love of the finer things. It is this love that led my friend to suggest we change into something more formal and go somewhere fancy for dinner. Our evening did not turn out as planned. We decided on Tokara or Pierneef a La Motte but both were

One Fine Day

I relocated to Cape Town nine months ago and even though it’s been challenging, it’s also been exciting. The challenging part for me has not only been trying to settle in to a new home, of which I’ve had to do three and half times since I relocated, but making new friends. The older you get, the more difficult it is to make friends. You become jaded, probably fallen out with a handful of friends either because they owe you money, they hooked up with your boyfriend,  they’re bi-polar or the

I’m far from sad, don’t be fooled by my post title. As a blogger, one of the many things you struggle with are blog titles. I debated many titles before deciding on Summertime Sadness which just happens to be one of my favourite songs by Lana Del Ray. I wore this look two weekends ago when it was warm. I can’t believe how soon we’ve moved to spring, it seems like it was just summer yesterday. It just goes to show, seasons do change and even though it may rain

I still can’t believe it’s winter! The weather has been quite moderate, I must say. I recently relocated to Cape Town from Johannesburg and had expected to experience a cold winter but so far, the weather has been tolerable. Reveling in the temperate climate, I took advantage and wore my shorts out.  It’s never too cold to wear shorts, anyway! Shirt: Cotton On Sweater: Mr Price Sling bag: Aldo Ankle boots: Jet

I wore this outfit to The Weekend Social in Braamfontein yesterday. The theme of the evening was monochrome. I thought monochrome meant “black and white” but it turns out that monochrome is more than just “black and white”. Monochrome means: consisting of or displaying images in black and white or in varying tones of one colour. This is defined according to the Oxford English dictionary. Yesterday was my first time being at the Weekend Social. It was a vibrant yet different environment for me. I would describe it as a

Its getting really cold now and I’m not too happy about it. The good thing is in winter, my face secretes less oil than it does in summer so that’s at least a positive.
