Man! I love reveling in new looks. Today’s Outfit brings back the Rabbit Fur Vest I wore a couple of days back, which is by Adrienne Landau The beauty of fashion is its inexhaustible spirit to – even if you don’t wish to be yourself that day – allow you a reprieve to be someone else….

Winter Fashion: Must Have Adrienne Landau Vest for Street Style

As a benevolent keyboard warrior and dictator of taste, when I deign to vacate my post, I have to look the part that best exemplifies the person I am online and in the outside world. I have clothing rails I love to look at from my bed; Pieces I have collected over time, and impulse…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town: The Fashion Week that was’nt

Windswept. Meager. Disorderly. Woefully inadequate. The truth of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017, was that of a weathered offering falling apart at the seams. This piece of indulged mediocrity by the AFI – Africa Fashion International organization, was collectively mishandled on so many levels. The Drama The Public Relations flavor-of-the-month to handle the re-emerging bi-annual…

Outfit of the Day: Haute Couture

Day 3 and we got us a haute couture situation for my final day of this months street style. My friend and I hit up our regular CBD haunt, to snap some street style shoots; and we had quite some fun with hair and clothes – while burning in the Cape Town sun. Today, I’m…

Outfit of the Day: Black & Gold

I wore them last, when I was at Lexus South African Menswear Week 2017 and I decided I’d be remiss not to rock them again. Today’s outfit is pretty much a chilled knit jersey by nobody, and my Puma Basket Heart Sneakers. I love them. It’s like being a ballerina with street cred. (The sneakers have…

Outfit of the Day: That African Butter

It’s grey today, in Cape Town. I decided to publish something a little sunny. I haven’t done these in a couple months, but I have a near retro chic outfit of the day, and no other words to keep you reading. Go look at the pretty. My hair is by Brazil Hair| Earrings (which I…

Travel South Africa: Escape to Majeka House

Let us veer a little away from the ocean side with my next travel escapade, and into the lush green landscape of Western Cape’s more mountain-side luxury escapes. Conveniently situated along the Cape Wine Route (and under an hours drive from Cape Town), the gorgeous and eclectic, owner-managed Majeka House, is a luxurious pocket of paradise – whether…

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

For many, 2016 has been a world of disappointment, but – while I can list the soul-crushing challenges of this year – I will focus on the amazing positive aspects right now. 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

I say explore your city because you’ll often find the best haunts in your own back yard. I like location scouting for potential shoots and finding new places to get my hipster fashion blogging on, while I explore Cape Town; So I took a friend of mine all across the City Bowl, Sea Point, Green…

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…
