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…

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…

When your Neighbourhood is just so good

I’ve been hearing about the famed Neighbourgoods Market for ages, from friends, and social media alike. I woke up totally tired today, but strong-armed myself into getting up, and experiencing this ‘wonder’ of hipster proportions. Since I live in the vicinity, the logistics of savoring the Cape Town Saturday ambiance weren’t strenuous at all. The…

The gangs all back together

I recently moved back to Cape Town, South Africa, and have been reconnecting with friends and acquaintances. My buddies and I decided to make a day of it. Lemme tell you: anytime this unholy triumvirate head out, things never go entirely to plan; our stories usually end with a 2-day bender in the city. We…

Jumpstreet

I was on my way out the mall and spotted this lady dressed well. How great is that jumpsuit, and lipstick so meticulously lining thin lips? You know I’m a sucker for fashion and beauty. She teams the jumpsuit with a pair of Adidas sneakers and reflective blue sunnies. What are your thoughts on this…

Fashion Prudes: The lack of fashion immersion in SA

“Adornment, what a science!” – Coco Chanel When South African designers and retail owners ask the question “Why aren’t we garnering any productive international fashion acclaim, and gaining traction in a larger profit margin?” they should probably look no further than South African consumers themselves. The heart of fashion abroad – in places that have…

Look of the Day: Trail Blazer

I’m a woman who likes the really simple side of fashion styling, so when I was at London Fashion Week dressed in such a manner, I got quite alot of requests for photo ops and interviews regarding my style. One of the people who requested my time was a liaison from one of Britain’s leading…

London Fashion Week 2015: Event Review

I expected more. I expected to be awed by an unparalleled sense of decadent historical nostalgia, contemporary style innovation and pure wonder at the annual spectacle that celebrated British fashion and implied subsequent creativity. What I got was something that paled in comparison. I don’t count it to be a fault on my part for…

London Fashion Week: Day 5 Look

Sorry about the delayed post. This look was an impromptu gettup. I had not factored a Day 5 into my wardrobe plan-out. I’m wearing my durable black Levis skinny jeans, a vintage leather jacket from Babette, a poloneck, a vintage crocodile skin clutch bag, Woolworths heels, and beaded bling. Sunnies from Spitfire. Street style pictures…

Pounding pavement 2.0: Street style

You can name-drop David and Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie-Pitt and Brad Pitt, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West etc. but the question is: What ties these people together? When it comes to fashion, the answer is the His ‘n Hers ensembles. The trend that has been noted these past 8-10 years is an incline in apparel…

Look of the Day: Black Bohemia

 Any time I get the blues and want to channel the inner vagabond in me, I turn to the rails of my wardrobe and select something bohemian and gypsy-like. I like the idea of being a style deviant and I covet rare pieces, such as my crochet jersey top I got from my mother.  I…

Malls and Men

 Don’t get it twisted – Men can shop. While some may think they are bound by the inextricable Man Code that dictates their actions to the only extreme acceptance of Metrosexuality, there are some that don’t subscribe to such trivial unwritten mandates. While on my shopping steez, I spotted this man leaving the Gucci store…
