Because Black & White Never Fails {OOTD}

Shorts (Lalla X Legit) | Top (Charlotte Russe) | Hat + Booties (Forever21 - old) | Bag (H&M old)

First off, yes this is the last look I will be posting with my now old hair. I feel happy & sad about it. Happy because I finally took the plunge & did something drastic. And sad because I really did love this look on myself. So get ready, because any outfit posts coming your way will be with the shorter hair :)

Now on to today's look. Ideally I would have loved to post this on Monochrome Monday, but then realistically speaking - monochrome black & white is great on any day, is it not? Black & white will never fail you. Whether your aim is to look like Victoria Beckham or to look like a Dalmatian - I have no idea. But what I am sure of is that this colour combo has produced some of my best looks.  You could choose to wear your monochrome look in a print, or to colour-block; but the options are endless. Personally, I don't tend to mix prints too often, but I liked the contrast of the bold stripe on the shorts, compared to the chic animal print on the booties. I think I've managed to pull it together quite tastefully. What do you think?

GAP Styld.by {OOTD}

"Sexy Boyfriend" jeans (GAP) | Barbie bodysuit (Forever21) | Coat (Truworths) | Bag (Blackcherry via Fashionhub) | 
Heels (Steve Madden) | Sunglasses (Levi's Eyewear)

I have worn these GAP 1969 "sexy boyfriend" jeans more times in the past month than I wear most items I own. They are so versatile. I wear them to work; to the mall; & here I wore them for a cup of coffee with Jerome at Freedom Cafe. I'll be honest "I'm really not a coffee drinker" but yes that it a cappuccino  I have over there. I don't consider cappuccinos to be coffee; there's just so much milk it's really a coffee-flavoured milkshake. Make sense? 

But back to today's look. I love how relaxed I feel in a pair of boyfriend jeans. They were once the sort of denims I cringed at the thought of. And now I wear them more than any other style of denim. True story. I guess that's what happens when you explore your style & open yourself up to possibilities. A few years ago I would not wear denims unless they were a skinny fit. Thank the heavens I have grown up & evolved - this blog would be very boring had I not.

The "CHIC" Look {OOTD}

Faux fur (Suite Blanco) | Jumpsuit (Velvet at YDE) | Bag (Blackcherry via Kalahari) | Turban (Mr Price) | Heels (Steve Madden) | 
Necklace (LEGIT - old) | Boho Marks via Sassychic | Sunglasses (Chloe Eyewear)


I am finally getting to share with you all a full outfit post on the look I wore to the Edgar's #NightOfFashion event that was held at Rosebank Mall just over a week ago. This look was so well-recieved & to be very honest - lots of thought was put into it. I actually shot the look with Jerome the morning of the event - before I flew to Jhb. I was so worried I was going to mess the jumpsuit or something horrible would happen, & I would have to come up with another look. But luckily it all worked out for me. I actually think this may be in my Top 5 OOTD posts.  It's just so chic & "ooh girl" if that makes any sense?! What do you say?

Also, you guys should know that this clutch is currently on sale for R129 via Kalahari. FYI.

H&M AW14 Studio Collection {OOTD}

Dress (H&M AW14 Studio Collection) | Heels (Steve Madden x Blonde Salad) | Bag + Earrings (H&M) | 
Flash Tattoo (Boho Marks available via Sassychic)


When I purchased this olive green dress from the H&M AW14 Studio Collection back in Shanghai over a month ago - I was beyond excited. I stalked the collection online before I got to travel & see the products for myself. Often I find that the merchandise is mostly sold out, or I battle to find my size, & in this case that was true, but at least the few items I had intention of purchasing were available. H&M clothing makes me so happy. I love their quality. When I spend money there, I know I will have those pieces for a while.

I'm travelling to China on 10 November. And it just so happens that Alexander Wang x H&M launches on 6 November. I have seen what a few items look like, but I have no idea of price points or the full collection. I will do my research closer to the time, but yes I am very excited for that too. Hopefully it won't be sold out or anything like that - I.will.die.

If you asked me where I love to shop most, I would say H&M.
If I asked you, what would you say?

Cream on Cream Goodness {OOTD}

 Skirt + Earrings (H&M) | Bag (Blackcherry Bags) | Heels (Steve Madden X Blonde Salad)

Yay! Not only is it Friday - but I also have a fab new outfit post for you loves :) You guys know me, I find it terribly hard to choose images so I pretty much include everything! lol. I simply loved this cream on cream look. It is sexy & edgy. I like that. It's just like me (just kidding - not). I especially love how Jerome captured me in this look. There is me in my most natural laughing & talking mode; there's pretending to be shy & looking away Brett; & there's even "why is this taking so long" stank face Brett. It has been such a pleasure getting to work with Jerome. To put it simply, we have fun. And while not every image you will see on this blog will be shot by him, you will certainly start to see more of his work here. To check out his work see link below.
