Why Fashion Matters Okay so maybe fashion is the last thing on your mind during this global crisis but a little retail therapy might be just the thing to lift your spirits. We need a whole of positivity and some inspiration right now. Our president, Cyril Ramaphosa just announced mere hours ago that the number of people infected with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) has doubled. It went up to 116 confirmed cases! But we all need to live our lives – in isolation or not – and what better way to

Developing Sustainable Fashion Businesses at AFI  Fashion Week 2020 This year’s AFI Fashion Week is about developing sustainable fashion businesses. Did you know that the global apparel market is valued at over 3 trillion dollars?! Yup, it accounts for 2 per cent of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Sadly, it also generates 4% of the world’s waste each year. About 92 million tons to be exact. Sustainability is very important to me. It is why as a fashion blogger, I feel that it is my responsibility to show you

Who knew SA Menswear Week isn’t just for men?! I sure didn’t. Although it is a platform dedicated to the development and promotion of menswear within the African continent, it is open to everyone. This two-day fashion show took place at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town on 6 February and ended on 8 February 2020. I must admit, even though I’m a fashion blogger, I don’t always know about some of these local fashion shows. And I wouldn’t have known about this one if not for a friend telling

Flared jeans used to be all the rage in the 70s, fast forward five decades later and it’s making a comeback in 2020. There’s a strong 70s movement on the runway and celebrities like Margot Robbie, Harry Styles and Penelope Cruz have been seen rocking this 1970s hippie trend. Denim jeans have always been on-trend, it’s the style of jeans that has changed over the years. From low-rise, baggy, bootcut, skinny, high waist to mom jeans, the list goes on and now it seems like a fair few of us

I’ve always had a thing for sunglasses. I have about 30 pairs of sunglasses, maybe more – and that’s not counting the ones I just recently gave away. To me, sunglasses are the ultimate accessory.  They can transform your look and elevate your style. I have some designer sunglasses and some not-so-designer. If I’m being honest, probably 25 of the 30 pair of sunglasses I own are regular/schmegular. Ain’t nobody got money to spend thousands on sunglasses. A pair or two from Mr Price or as the posh people call

You don’t have to be rich to look stylish, you only need to have good taste and or – in my case – be discerning. People have this misconception that to look stylish/expensive/boujee, you need to have lots of money but that isn’t true. You can be rich and not stylish. Conversely, you can be poor, or at least living on minimum wage and be stylish. Ever heard of the term “hobo chic”? Ha! It bears no relation to this but you get where I’m going with this, right? If

There is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise – Bosa Sebele Happy Women’s Month! I’ve always been inspired by strong, ambitious women. Women who know what they want and go after it no matter what. It’s incredible how much we can achieve when we put our mind to it. Can I get an Amen?! What better way to commemorate women’s month than by featuring one of my personal favourite Nigerian designers, Jaymodiva’s recent collection. The newly launched fashion collection, She Is Me celebrates the strength, resilience,

I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year already, can you? Time really does fly. Did you start this year thinking it’ll be the best year yet? How is it going so far? As for me, it’s been a year of rediscovery and learning.  It definitely has not gone exactly according to plan but I’m not complaining. But before I get all deep and philosophical, let’s move on to a lighter topic, shall we? S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G, yay! I’m an online shopping kind of girl. Why? Because it is easy and convenient. 

And we’re back to regular schedule!  (Blog post every Wednesday and Friday) First off, I feel like I owe you, my loyal readers, an apology for the silence. You don’t deserve it and I’ll do better. It is currently 2:15 am and for the past three to four days, I have been working non-stop on an assignment so much so that I’ve had very little time for anything else, not even to eat. I recently went back to study and the schedule with everything else I have going on is

Winter is coming… Is your wardrobe winter-ready yet? If not, you are not alone. There are only a few items that you need to have in your wardrobe to be winter-ready and they are: Coat Boots Scarf Sweater If you have these then you don’t need to buy anything else. Ha! If only I believed my own lies. As many clothes as I have, I find that the desire to buy more and add to my already full wardrobe never ceases. I’m always on the lookout for something new to
