#LEGITLuvsDineo IN STORES NOW!!!


I type today’s post with great excitement! LEGIT has launched their WINTER 2014 collaboration in stores: LUV DR. The range was developed with Dineo Ranaka, who needs no introduction. She has presented radio shows; & has even starred in her own reality tv show. Legit is known for collaborations with some of South Africa’s top stylistas - Minnie Dlamini, Bonang Matheba, & DJ Zinhle to name a few. Dineo fits right in, & for me is an obvious choice as brand ambassador for Legit.

“Everything I am lives & breathes in this fashion range. I don’t like to think of myself as an IT girl, I am more of an everything girl & it is visible in this range” – Dineo Ranaka

I love that quote straight from Dineo. And I believe that she did give the Legit customer a great range with “everything”.  Whether it is an accessory; a pair of shoes; or a great clothing item – the range is versatile enough that we will all find something in it.

I have selected a few of my favourite pieces from the collection.

But I do still suggest you get down to your closest Legit store & look at the entire range for yourself. Be sure to share your pics with Legit on social media & don’t forget to use the hashtag #LEGITLuvsDineo

Tartan & Mesh {OOTD}

Top (Asos) | Skirt (Forever21 - similar here) | Jacket (Cotton On - similar here & here) | Heels (Steve Madden x The Blonde Salad) |
 Bag (Blackcherry Bags) | Earcuff (similar at Lovisa) |


A quick post from me to you, before the long weekend. I am off to New York this Saturday which means I don't spend Easter with my family, but instead in a foreign country working. Its actually quite cool for me, because I am not the 'holiday mood' kind of person. I love work. And I especially love the work that gets me to see the world. Last Easter I spent in Hong Kong, & this year will be in New York.  One day I am going to look back at these memories fondly.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great Easter weekend. See you soon! xx

Let's talk Autumn/Winter Trends for 2014


Woohoo! I have finally finished editing this 16 minute video!!! I shot this video weeks ago, but am only publishing it now for multiple reasons. One of those reasons is that I actually wanted to scrap it because there are noisy birds in the background. While filming I honestly didn't hear a thing - but the camera picked up EVERYTHING!!!

In this video, I discuss the broader themes for the season: Grunge; Luxe; Feminity etc. I then also discuss a few prints you should invest in, as well as hot items for the season. I didn't mention absolutely every trend going on, these are just the ones I was keen on letting you guys know about.

Honestly, between my winter trending trip to NYC last August, & what I have seen locally of late - nothing is that revolutionary. Crop tops are still big, the sleeves are just longer. The midi-skirt is being worn by everyone & their mother. And monochrome is still around!

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the video, if you do - let me know your thought. Again, I apologize for the noisy birds! Also, I just want you guys to note that this is my interpretation of what is happening for the season. It is not set in stone, & I want you guys to interpret it & adapt it in your own way.

The Snake Dress {OOTD}

 Dress (LABEL Femme via Sassychic) | Belt (YDE) | Bag (H&M) | Heels (The Blonde Salad x Steve Madden)


My niece calls this The Snake Dress. It's quite sweet actually, as she hates snakes but loves this dress (& me of course).  It's Friday, & that means its 1 week until I leave on another work trip - this time to New York. On my first NYC trip last August, I didn't bother with the tourist stuff; but on this trip I have 1 day free to do whatever I want, so I have been planning what I can do. I definitely want to see the MoMA (Museum of Modern Arts) & the Empire State building (I have seen it, but not been to the top); & also to have a cup of coffee in Central Park. I will hopefully get to do all this stuff & more on my free day - & even though I will be alone, I'm sure I will get enough pictures for Instagram lol.

I was actually chatting to a friend of mine about Easter which is next Sunday. Last Easter I was alone in Hong Kong, having Starbucks for lunch. This Easter, I will be in New York trending. It's so funny how life goes, & where we find ourselves. I never dreamt that this would be my life. My job has opened me up to many possibilities, & in many ways has changed my views on so many things. To say that I was blessed or lucky would be a huge understatement. But I am really grateful for it all.

Lime skirt for evening GLAM {OOTD}

Top (Miss Selfridge) | Skirt (Mr Price) | Heels (Steve Madden) | Earrings (Lovisa) | Rings (Asos) 

I styled this look for a small feature I did for GET IT Magazine Durban (see it here). I just love how sexy this bodysuit is. I posted all 3 looks using this stunning lime skirt - but I still had this look to post individually (I love seeing lots of images rather than just the published image). 

I received a little criticism over my styling choices in the feature, & I thought I would chat a bit about that over here. Style is an individual thing. What appeals to you may not appeal to me. And as the person styling the 3 looks for GET IT Mag - I not only had to think of myself, but mainly about the reader. It's very similar to what I do at work. I see an amazing garment & want to have it with all the bells & whistles - but I can't do that because i have to think of who my customer is. She is pretty much your average female. Very commercial & not very fashion forward (she doesn't take risks with fashion). You have to approach trends lightly with her & it takes time for her to get into it. But back to my styling choices - I previously styled this skirt with a lilac top & chiffon bomber (see here), & while that was a great look - it did not have mass appeal, & while many would've loved the way it looked - they would not have worn it in that way. So, when styling these looks, I thought to myself "How can I make everyone feel like they can try this; but still feel like I could wear it too?". And that's how I came up with the looks. You may not agree with my choices - but that's ok.
