Outfit of the Day: Darkness

A forgotten simple outfit – its visuals lost to the back-end of my phones archives. I love this straight, ombre hair from Aretha Bauwens Hair. It makes it easy to just dress and go when I’m travelling. I’m also rocking black tassel earrings by H&M, a vest and pleather jacket (that is falling apart, after…

Outfit of the Day: Fine Art

I recently got the opportunity to visit Norval Foundation, in Steenberg. The incredible magnitude of the gallery itself, is matched only by the landscape that makes its backdrop. “We are dedicated to the research and exhibition of 20th- and 21st-century visual art from South Africa and beyond…We aim to create high-quality exhibitions and public programming…

Outfit of the Day: Deep Blue Broad

“We all have one idea of what the color blue is, but pressed to describe it specifically, there are so many ways: the ocean, lapis lazuli, the sky, someone’s eyes. Our definitions are as different as we are ourselves.” – Sarah Dessen I’ve spent so many travel days wearing this dress, that it’s nearly my…

This look is literally from an event I attended a while ago, but I’d be remiss in my duties as a fashion blogger, not to post something this Saturday. So here’s an Outfit of the Day for you. It’s cold in Cape Town, and so I got my Adrienne Landau fur out for the day….

Cape Town Foodie Escapades: The Shortmarket Club Review

It’s Winter Menu-Palooza in the Mother City right now. In the grand style of major cities around the world, winter and the fall season mean chefs rolling out Prix Fixe – or “fixed price” – menus. In Cape Town, every restaurant, bistro and cafe, is thirsty for your money and company. With so many eateries aspiring…

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.

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.

It likely comes as a surprise to most – unfamiliar with South Africa…

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…

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…

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…

Hiking Sucks!

Don’t let anybody fool you guys! Hiking sucks okay. I totally blame these fit friends of mine. Wait! Alright, lemme play devils advocate: Its swell for folks who regularly exercise and consider the ‘great outdoors’ the shit! But lemme tell you something my reader – if you’re as unfit as me, that 5.whatever kilometer climb…

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…

Stepping about in Woodstock

I’m a fan of taking long walks into unfamiliar territory purely for the purpose of sight-seeing and rediscovering a forgotten landscape. So I got on a train, took a 30min+ train ride, and spent the day in another corner of Cape Town …and now you get to see the amateur photography I used to capture…

Rocking Cocoa

Theobroma Cacao (or simply cocoa) ROCKS!   Honestly, I’d sell my soul and several family members for a lifetime supply of chocolate. No joke! I totally would.   I have an insatiable sweet tooth, and chocolate ranks as my favorite.   While working in Woodstock, I came across a chocolate wonderland called RocoCocoa.    It…
