Dressing Up Alexander Wang X H&M {OOTD}

Top (New York purchase) | Skirt (Alexander Wang X H&M) | Sunglasses (Chloe) | Heels (Legit - old) | Clutch (Blackcherry Bags) | Necklace (China purchase)

We all know about the Alexander Wang x H&M collection that launched a little over a month ago, don't we? Well, on my last trip to China I managed to purchase 2 items in Hong Kong before heading home. The truth is, every H&M I had visited prior to that was SOLD OUT. Quite sad I know. My choices were limited, but truth be told - this skirt was on my list of must-have items.

While J'adore Alexander Wang's design aesthetic, I would not wear most of the clothes he made. Personal preference. But the thing I loved about this collection he did with H&M was that it had something for everything, even while maintaining the sports luxe aesthetic he is famous for. And while I may venture into the sports luxe arena - I do it in a way I am comfortable with.

I have seen this particular skirt worn in many ways, mostly paired with sliders or sneakers & a sweatshirt. I decided to make it night-time appropriate. So while the piece on it's own is sporty. The overall look today is glam. It's me. I think it's important to be able to transform ones clothing so that it can be worn as much as possible. I know I often don't repeat items (unless I am absolutely obsessed with them) on the blog, but I do in my everyday life. And the reason you don't see repeats here is because I don't have a photographer following me around everyday - sad I know. I would actually love that! Anyway, I would love to hear your thoughts on this look post. I really do love this skirt. And the shopping bag too :) I had to include it!

And just a little disclaimer, yes this was shot before I went pixie :) The blog was so busy last week I had to wait to post this. Hope you have enjoyed it.

#ExploreTheNight {OOTD + Experience}

Top + Skirt (H&M) | Clutch purchased in Dubai | Necklace (Legit - old) | Heels (Blonde Salad x Steve Madden)

If you haven't heard by now, Smirnoff has launch the exciting Explore The Night App. Last week I posted all about it - click here to read that post. While I have mentioned a million times that the FREE CAB is in fact free, it seems some people think there is a catch. Well there isn't. Simply download the App & request a cab on Friday or Saturday from 7pm-2am.  So what are you waiting for, when are you trying it?


My #ExploreTheNight Experience
Last Friday, I decided to have a little fun on Florida Road while Jerome snapped tons of images as we went about our evening. We had our awesome driver Spha, who we chatted to & laughed with - very cool guy in fact. It was actually quite nice to not have to drive, especially when you are having a drink or three.

This is how I like to dress when I go out. It's sexy & fun & it makes me feel good. Sequins has been everywhere & that is especially why I decided to wear this look. A bit of a Trend Alert for you guys I guess. 

If you didn't know, I am hosting a small get-together for my Durban blog readers.

#MANGOMyStyle VIP Customer Event {+WIN R500 gift card}


Last week I hosted a MANGO VIP Customer event at the MANGO store at Gateway in Durban. In a nutshell, I chatted to customers (& the readers who won tickets via this blog) about fashion trends for this summer. I even got to dress 3 MANGO employees according to my favourite trends for the season.

I often joke about the fact that I am a year ahead. But really I am. Work-wise I have completed winter & have already gotten started with next summer. So, when I am asked about trends, I have to think about it quite hard. Because while I am present in summer 2014/2015 - my head is in summer 2015/2016. Anyway, after a little research through my old notes; I settled on 3 trends I thought would be best for the broad customer base that shops MANGO. The 3 trends were: Bohemian + Monochrome + 90's Grunge.


Monochrome - Black & white never fails. Colour blocking & prints are awesome. The grid print is especially popular.

Bohemian - Think Sienna Miller vibes. Flowy, sheer fabrics & paisley prints. Lots of embroidery, tassels, fringe & appliqué too.

90's Grunge - Leather accents. Plaid & check prints. Black, white & red.


Now for the giveaway! It's the 3rd one this week!!! Lol what can I say - it's Christmas!

HOW to WIN R500 from MANGO:

I am running this giveaway exclusive to Instagram.
1. Head over to my IG profile (@brettrobson) & see the picture I have posted today regarding #MANGOMyStyle (I'm wearing a yellow dress & there's text on the image).
2. Repost the image & tag @brettrobson & use the hashtag #MANGOMyStyle

Simple no?

Competition will end on Friday at 6pm.
Winner will be announced on Monday :)

Goodluck!
