Lexus South African Menswear Week: The blasé nod to 2017 style

I think designers understand menswear better this year. While theatricality plays its part during fashion week, it is functionality and fresh design that provide the bottom line after the shows end, most of the time. I think they’re getting it hey! 2017 collections gave the most blasé of nods as an ode to 2016 fashion…

Here for the Curvy: Fashion Bliss with Ruff Tung

“What’s a Ruff Tung?” “Is that code for something dirty?” Nooooooo, you guys! Ruff Tung is just the bomb fashion house that designs like 90% of the creations I don on the red carpet. Founded in 1999, by the now-deceased personality Jean-Paul Botha, Ruff Tung was angled for those with a taste for edgy club…

Summer Essentials 2016 & 2017 – Afrigarde creations

Afrigarde is a South African neck art range, created by the totally cool Maria Uys (seriously, she’s so cool). How many days can I style up my festive and post-festive  looks, with the Afrigarde choker? I put myself to the test; Turns out- I can do it quite a bit. Here’s a few #OOTDs Cowgirl Out…

2017! Year of epic #BodyPositivity

It started with a beat – No, for real! Dancing around in my room, feeling good while jamming out, is somewhat cathartic, and ups my self-confidence tremendously. Maybe, it’s the rise in endorphin’s, or just a really good song, but I truly delved into where I stood with body positivity at the end of 2016….

Thanks to the Designers, Hotels, PR folk & Brands that made my 2016

This year has produced some amazing content for me; and this would not have been possible without the collaborations, the tireless efforts to…

Outfit of the Day: Quicksilver

So I kind of live in a concrete jungle…seriously, the beach is a bit of a trip to get to. But because of that, there are quite a bit of beautifully constructed masterpieces in the city. So beloved is our architecture, that Cape Town is earmarked – by most European ad agencies and film studios…

Outfit of the Day: Autumn Vibes

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…
