LV


Now that is a Louis Vuitton bag I could rock! I usually find the patterned ones quite obnoxious and kitch, but this is uber chic and stylish. Classic and understated... everything you need for your everyday bag!! And then 1000’s of statement pieces on the side too :)

A Navy Blue Winter

Since trying to dye my hair silver/grey was an absolute joke, I’ve come to realise that I need to accept my very dark hair and run with it. Still wanting some change in my life I’ve found the next best thing that my beautiful friend, Jenni Smit, is going to help me with. She works at Ska on Kloof Street and was recently voted the 9th best hairdresser in Cape Town. A well-deserved award. So she is going to be doing my hair navy blue in the next few weeks for my winter look. I’m so excited! Will keep you posted!!

Gorgeous isn’t it?

Black Lipstick

This is such a hard thing to pull off, but if you can manage it, it looks STUNNING. I’ve never tried black lipstick but I think having lighter hair seems to be an easy way of making this look less gothic. Unfortunately for me my hair is as dark as the night :P I think the second solution is lighter clothing. Mixing black lipstick with a white or pastel outfit can give a very ethereal look.






Love this last look, its very casual and easy to recreate.
I think I’m going to try this soon.

The Olsen's - Winter Trend

This has got to be one of my favourite Olsen looks; they really just pull it off so well. I have really grown to love maxi skirts and dresses and have been keeping my eye out on any way to transition them into my winter wardrobe. The first thing I noticed is that they don’t work too well with a full length cardie, you need something cropped to your waist. But this is the ultimate winter maxi look – fur stole/jacket, maxi dress, stockings, booties. How glam and elegant.


Isn’t it divine. Here are a few other ways you can add some furriness to your winter maxi dress.



       For a slightly edgier look add some leather and some studded boots. LOVE this too :)

Wedge Sneakers

Theres something about these babies thats making me want them. Im not usually a sporty type but I really like the edge these add to an outfit. I first saw them on blogger ,Victoria Tornegren. She wears them so well showing off her classic black and white sporty style. I would wear them with a skirt as first option to add a slight femininity to my outfit or black leggings, a white sheer blouse and a cross necklace as second option.


Loving the animal print tones matching the shoes


Maxi skirts and anything look beautiful to me


Dark, classic and feminine - exactly how I would wear them


Leggings and matching neutral tones


All light


Light and frilly


What do you think? Should I go wedge?

My Top Winter Trends

Hello dear readers,

I’ve been absent quite a while now but it was all for a good cause. I’ve just gotten a new job as babywear artist for South African brand Naartjie Kids clothing (a brand I dressed in from a new born). With over half of their consumers being in the USA I will have my designs sold internationally. Go check out their website here. South Africa. USA.




But with that out of the way I want to tell you my top 5 autumn trends. The weather seems to be cooling down ever so slowly in Cape Town and the wind giving us a warm end of summer gust and the odd stormy night. So as the weather changes so will I begin unpacking a few odds and ends starting with:

1.    My Printed Stockings – The easiest way to add style to the plainest of outfits


2.    My Sheer Maxi’s – A great transitional piece from summer (add stockings and boots and viola)


3.    Layering Items – Great for the cold mornings and as you warm up with the day you can simplify


4.    My Winter Hat – Just because every woman needs one in her closet


5.    My Leather Skirt – Tough, sexy, feminine. It can appeal to everyone


So lets get ready for a stylish and fabulous fall season

OMG MINK PINK

How stunning is this Rock n Roll Chic-Party Girl shoot by Mink Pink teaming up with Urban Outfitters. Think girls gone GLAMOUR with sequins, fur, black patterned stockings, mesh, glitter explosions and skimpy dresses with metallic detail. I love the mix of retro blended with a futuristic approach.  And I absolutely love the cover photo in the taxi… 



















See the collection here.
I would ADOOOORE these gold sequin leggings from Shoptiques to get the Mink Pink look. Add a sexy black ripped tee and thick heeled ankle boots for a rock inspired outfit.
