Summer’s Fortune

Easily my current favourite dress at the moment, Fortune's Antifit Wrap Dress has been getting compliments whenever I've worn it this summer. Something about the collar reminds me of a beautiful dress with a similar shape that my mom used to wear when I was really young. Part of that memory drew me to the Antifit... Continue reading

CRUELTY FREE MAKE UP BASICS

Continuing my series on switching to Cruelty Free products I thought I'd show you my basic makeup kit. It's taken a while to rehaul my cosmetics bag but I've now got (almost) everything I need. I decided to strategically buy nudes and peachy hues across skin, eyes and lips as a starter beauty kit because... Continue reading

EVERYDAY JEWELLRY EDIT

The first piece of jewellery I remember owning was a pair of yellow gold studs. Plain, simple, with a tiny-as-can-be ball as the only form of decoration so I could wear them to school. I was obsessed with the idea of wearing different earrings that were more interesting because of how 'boring' these plain studs were... Continue reading

SUMMER UNIFORM TWIST

One of favourite one-and-done outfits for casual summer elegance is a simple A-line dress with sneakers and crossbody bag. This dress has a really flattering tie front detail, with a teeny cut out to give it a twist. This 100% cotton embroidery Anglaise in nude rose is also incredibly cool, with the recent heat waves...

FALL IN LOVE WITH BLOSS & CO

I've fallen in love with Bloss & Co's cute and cool backpack from their Spring Summer 2016 collection. Unveiled last week, the new collection is a decedent pastel-hued feast for the eyes. Inspired by petits fours and delicately hued choux pastries, Bloss & Co's selection for the season has something for every kind of woman's... Continue reading

SAFW AW2017 WHO, WHAT, WEAR

September saw SAFW's AW17 offering and with the shows having come and gone, fashion writers are tapping away at their keyboards to share their thoughts on the event. Heres my quick two cents on the experience. I haven't attended an SAFW in a while- it's pretty tough to keep up with South Africa's numerous fashion... Continue reading

COLD FRONTIN’

Spring has sprung and as it does every year, the weather is confused. For cold-but-it-could-get-warm-later days, I like to layer inter-seasonal basics and right now I can't get enough of this Jane Sews duster. This 100% linen duster is from the last sale at janesews.co.za. With winter separates in contrasting textures like this leather look... Continue reading

CRUELTY FREE SKINCARE

Skincare is next up in our series of reviews on products I've tried out on my cruelty-free journey! Changing my skincare to cruelty-free has been more affordable than other parts of my beauty routine. Being in lovely Johannesburg, hydration is one of my skin concerns- it can get so dry up here! I also have sensitivity... Continue reading

DUNGARESS WITH A DIFFERENCE

This one-piece from MANGO is the perfect love-child of dungarees and jumpsuits, with wide legged culottes detailing too. Bring on short (or no) sleeves and easy, breezy wide legs for Spring! For nostalgia, you can't beat dungarees and for a practicality, I can't fault jumpsuits. The great thing about jumpsuits, playsuits and dresses, is putting... Continue reading

CARING FOR SILK SCARVES

Silk scarves are adorning the necks of many stylish mavens this Spring but I'm the type of girl who gets makeup on my scarf all the time. No one wants a spot of fuchsia lipstick or an oily foundation on their scarves forever. When I had to use a brand new scarf as a makeup... Continue reading
