Cape Town foodie escapades: Richards Review

Located at the corner of Glengariff and Main Road Sea Point, Cape Town, is a theatre venue known as Richards Supper & Bistro. I got invited for a night dedicated to a spectacle. When I arrived, I walked on through upstairs to their Supper Stage, which is predicated on transporting both local and international guests “into…

I pride myself, as a blogger who writes about fashion, lifestyle, film, literature etc. to always relay the ‘klaasiest’ finds I come across. During my Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week escapades in Johannesburg, I got to experience pure class at two rather exquisite hospitality establishments: The Saxon Hotel and Fairlawns Boutique Hotel. So I decided to do…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 4

You didn’t think I’d leave you without a closer did you?! My darlings, I left the best for last, because Day 4 had some of the most exquisite haute couture designs out of Africa. Not to say my non-haute-couture outfit didn’t pass muster; as I put significant effort into being “Cream Queen” – as A…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 3

 Day 3, and I was tired but still wired – like I had mainlined caffeine after running a marathon. I tell you, high heels are not for the faint hearted. Anywhooo, after returning to my hotel from Day 2 of fashion week, I edited and uploaded some pictures to my Instagram, and then promptly passed right…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 2

I checked out of Fairlawns Boutique Hotel (with much sadness çuz I miss the tub that was in my room) and took a Uber to The Clico Hotel where #MBFWJ16StyleDuo were invited for lunch. Monde and I put our EyeSpy sunnies on, selfie’d up while awaiting our meal and drinking a light white wine, and…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 1

My tastes tend to tilt toward the side of decadence. However, the admission of a sense of style, and embracing exquisite taste, is oftentimes vilified as the closest sentiment to blatant materialism, and impacts the world of fashion and lifestyle development quite profoundly. I came to this discovery during Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg…

South Africa Menswear Week SS17 – The Klaasic Style Blogger Review

I know I’ve taken my sweet time to review South Africa Menswear Fashion Week –which “SHOCKER!”  I’m usually so vigilant – But I literally had no words to muster for the mild and mediocre event. I’ve only just managed to rustle up the energy to say something. My instagram has been busy though, as I…

Winter Getaways: Travel Africa with Rovos Rail

I was fortunate enough to experience one of Rovos Rail’s tour packages this past weekend, and – without prompt or obligation – I can give Rovos a firm 9/10 for their Pretoria to Cape Town trip. I can simply describe it as a world of 5-star luxury in motion, and it’s why Rovos Rail Tours is often…

Burn the Floor: A Dance Production Review…with wine!

Be still my pop culture heart! I’ve seen similar dance productions played through my TV screen in some of my favorite movies and television shows, and figured I’d get my chance to experience the spectacles once I’d touched down in New York, and experienced the marvels of Broadway like a true tourist. The first and…

Cycling Rules!

As you’ve probably gleamed from my post about hiking, I really don’t like exercise and I definitely haven’t warmed to the idea of a repeat hiking expedition. So my friend Liezel decided to try a new angle for getting me active, and? It worked! Now, I am not ready to brave the rough and rocky…
