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

TREND ALERT: Above the Knuckle Rings

The hottest thing Ive seen at the moment are above the knuckle rings. I absolutely LOVE them. My brother, York, an up and coming jewellery designer is hopefully going to be making me some this week and Ill let you all know how it goes.

How do you feel about the new way of wearing rings?

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.

Miss World by Kaltblut

Miss World is a beautiful example of glam grunge created for Kaltblut magazine. After a month of being quite fashionably uninspired this was a refreshing editorial to see. Created by Gabrielle Di Mola, it shows a beautiful and decrepit world with the tragic heroine at the centre. Luma Grothe reminds me of a girl who woke up in a fantasy land and is wandering around aimlessly exploring, all the while looking stunning as ever (even with smudged makeup). Beautiful and sad. She wears Atelier Del Cima, Wildfox, H&M amongst others.

Get the look by pairing a black dress with a white Peter Pan collar and white framed glasses from Modcloth paired with your fav MAC red lips
