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.

What’s not to love about jewellery? It’s a girl’s best friend. Men have caught on too and that’s why on special occasions like Valentine’s day, anniversaries or when they’re trying to get out of the dog house, they whip out a trinket box. Jewellery adds a certain je ne sais quoi to an outfit.  It doesn’t matter how well dressed you are, your look is not complete without it. You can go from a 6 to a solid 9 if you know how to mix and match your accessories. An

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 How are you going to claim new me with an outdated wardrobe?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

‘Summer Yellow; Hello Mellow Yellow!’ See what I did there? Yellow is one of my favourite colours. It’s bright, bold and happy. What’s not to love? I was window shopping at Ikota Shopping Complex one weekend when I stumbled upon this yellow playsuit. The colour caught my eye followed by the style. It looked cute, playful with just the right amount of sexy that I couldn’t help but try it on. Ever try something on and pray it’s ill-fitting because even though you like it, you don’t want to have

I think we all know by now that fashion is recycled. It’s in one season then it’s not and then it’s in again. 90’s fashion is currently what’s trending. Your childhood staple – the dungarees- are making a comeback and I’m sharing three ways you can wear it. Keep reading if you want to find out how. I was never really into the dungarees aka overalls trend. Sure it looks good on some fashionistas but my infatuation for dungarees died in the 90’s along with my childhood. I’ve always felt that

I  bet you’ve heard the saying, you are what you eat but probably not, “you are what you wear”. Well, it’s true, you are what you wear. There’s a reason why people say “you need to dress the part”. If you’re interviewing for a role as an exec at a corporate you wouldn’t wear jeans and a t-shirt would you? If you do, then you’re probably not serious about getting the job or at least that’s what the interviewer will think. Tom Ford said,  “dressing well is a form of good
