SAFW Day 3

Last week I attended day 3 of South African Fashion Week (I missed the first two days due to personal commitments). Day 3 was quite underwhelming (apparently Day 1 was the showstopper), with nothing exciting coming down the runway bedsides for Vintage Zionist and a Chinese presentation by designer Chu Yan. Nonetheless, I had a great time connecting … Continue reading SAFW Day 3

Stranded

Sometimes we create with purpose and sometimes we just create. All too often, posts are created with the intention of conveying a message, relaying a trend or sharing recommendations. When do we stop and create just to be creative? There is not always the need to write about something specific or teach a fashion lesson. … Continue reading Stranded

Nicci AW 17 Event

Nicci Launch AW ’17

Each time I attend the highly anticipated Nicci Boutiques event, I am absolutely blown away. Every season, the Nicci team somehow manages to outdo themselves. If there was ever a prize for generosity, they would certainly take the crown. If it's not enough to showcase the newest season's most beautiful clothes, the team pull out all … Continue reading Nicci Launch AW ’17

Tow Away Zone

When it comes to bright, bold colours, I'm always all in. For me, the brighter the better. So it may come as no surprise then, that I was instantly sold on this dress (by colour alone) before even trying it on. Apple green has been a long time favourite of mine and this dress blatantly capitalises … Continue reading Tow Away Zone

Office Dress Code

Or lack thereof. A few weeks back I had an interview with a financial consulting company and had nothing to wear. I am a big time believer in the power of first impressions and being someone who works in the fashion industry, I certainly wanted to dress to impress. I remember the utter shock on … Continue reading Office Dress Code

Casual Coolness

When a typical day consists of university, running errands and some form of exercise, I most likely opt for easy-to-wear pieces that maximise comfort and practicality and don't compromise on style. This black dress has come to solve many of these kinds of style ruts. The combination of the short sleeves and low back with … Continue reading Casual Coolness

Munro Drive

Remember a few weeks back when I told you there was more to come from Josh and I? Well the wait is over my friends. You may remember this dress from this post a while back. I mentioned that we had done the look two ways and you would have to wait to see the second version. … Continue reading Munro Drive

Colour Curated

This dress is one of my favourite go-to pieces. It's constantly on rotation and I love how its simplicity speaks volumes. It's my saving grace when I have to quickly throw something on and be out the door - without looking like I have put in zero effort. The combination of the lightweight and flowy … Continue reading Colour Curated

Olive Obsession

As a child, I absolutely hated the colour olive green. Regardless of the countless times my mother promised me that this particular green brought out the colour in my eyes, it made me feel uncomfortable in ways I can't explain. As I become more fashion-aware, I find myself gravitating towards more neutral colours including the now … Continue reading Olive Obsession

Starstruck

When I spotted this dress in the shops a few weeks back, I knew in that instant that I was sold. A dress like this fills a huge void in my wardrobe - a modest piece of clothing that is neither boring nor dull. With its appropriate length and wide shoulder-covering sleeves, I initially picked … Continue reading Starstruck
