New York foodie escapades: Le Pain Quotidien Review

Fashion Week, and the hustle and bustle of Hudson Street, New York, can really get you exhausted quickly. I’ve found myself taking breaks in boutiques and cafe’s in Midtown, alike. Starbucks is my home away from home thanks to Frappuccino delights, but it was Le Pain Quotidien – a few meters away from New York…

Travel New York: A Bloggers Essential Hi Online Gadgets

It’s a brave, new world where gadgets reign supreme. For the most part, tech is a convenient way to get many of our jobs done, but humans can very rarely be replaced. That is what makes reading content – like about my New York trip – through our phones and such, so much fun. I’ve…

Everyone who has been to The Big Apple atleast once, has their own kernels of wisdom for the next person.

New York Fashion Week 2017: Day Two Outfit of the Day

I woke up, and my feet gave me the mother of all reality checks: I will NOT be wearing high heels to Fashion Week today! With this adamant and throbbing reprimand in effect, I had to figure out what I should wear that still speaks to my taste and need for comfort, all while trying…

New York Fashion Week 2017: Day One Outfit of the Day

New York Fashion Week has been at the top of my list of pop culture ‘bucket list’ ventures since I understood the idea of personal style and the realm of taste-makers.

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…

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…

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…

The Saxon Vs. Fairlawns: 5-Star Joburg Hotel Review

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.

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

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…
