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
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,
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
When it comes to style, I love the idea of being able to style an item of clothing in several different ways. I enjoy the challenge of thinking outside the box and coming up with more than one way of wearing a piece of clothing. Everyone wants to look “brand new”, unfortunately, not everyone has the budget to do so. But when you invest in quality, versatile pieces, there is no reason you can’t wear it again and again and look different each time you do. It’s a lazy and
The Polka dot trend is back and she ain’t never going nowhere ever again. Polka dot is one of those feminine trends that we girly-girls appreciate. And let me tell you, the black and white polka dot owned the Paris Spring 2018 runway. Whether it’s the oversized ’80s iterations at Carolina Herrera’s runway show or Jason’s Wu’s romantic dresses, this trend made quite the impression. There’s just something about polka dots. I ain’t never seen a black and white polka dot outfit that I didn’t like – it’s just so reminiscent of the ’60s.
Can you believe it is the last month of the year? Damn, me neither! Party season is here and like most people on the planet, finding THE outfit can be challenging. I personally do most of my shopping online these days and one of my favourite places to shop is on SUPERBALIST. With over 500 local and international fashion brands, you are bound to find something for you. And with party season around the corner, you don’t have to stress about going to different shops in search of an outfit.
Summer is here which means it is swimwear season. Queue the beach, yacht and pool parties. But first, did you know that understanding your body shape is paramount to getting the right swimwear. For example, I have somewhat of an athletic build, and petite sized boobs so if I am to wear a bikini top, I like it to be padded. I would most likely buy swimwear that flatters other parts of my body that I don’t mind being on display, like my back. I also don’t like my butt cheeks
Did you know that the colour you like says something about your personality? Pink happens to be one of my favourite colours. It is such a pretty, feminine colour. Growing up, I always thought there were limitations to the colours I could wear, as a dark skin girl. Pink and red were two of those colours I thought I shouldn’t wear. Of course, I have since discovered that that just isn’t true, but back then, I didn’t know any better. Maybe it is why I am so fond of pink
Figuring out what to wear can be a nightmare. Most days, I am pretty certain about what I want to wear to any occasion, be it to work or a social event. But there are also those days that I change my mind about an outfit at least 5 times. I hate those days, it literally ruins my mood. Thankfully it doesn’t happen too often. Work in itself is stressful, figuring out what to wear doesn’t have to be. I tend to lay out what I’m going to wear to work
If you’re reading this, I bet you want to know if wearing red can make you look more attractive and confident? Yes – yes, it can. How? Red is often associated with love and passion. Ever read a romance novel? red-hot are some of the adjectives used to describe a steamy scene, right? So, when you wear red it can affect the way that you are perceived. It is such a bold colour and you immediately stand out. A red lip, red shoes, red dress all point to someone who
