Cape Town foodie escapades: Dalliance Restaurant Review

So I get a lovely invite in my mailbox, welcoming me to come dine in the newly revamped urban eatery Dalliance Restaurant & Bar – located within the ‘gold mile’ of Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, in Cape Town.

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…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Dapper Coffee Co. Review

I’m sure you’ve seen my foodie escapades focused more on nightlife dining, but I like to switch it up. Today’s Cape Town foodie escapade took me for a lunch break at the corner of Strand & Bree Street, in the Cape Town central business district. Attracting the gaze of any passer-by, is a counterpoised establishment,…

Cape Town foodie escapades: Raya Kitchen Review

Let’s keep this simple from the start: Raya Kitchen does its duty as a contributor to world-renowned fine dining experiences.

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.

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….

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…

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.

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. So I decided to do…

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…

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…
