THOUGHT FOR TODAY



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY


smart sportswear

Sleek, glossy and ultra-modern, summer's sporting looks have a glamourous spin. Think runway, not running track.






STYLE TIP: smart sportswear is a slick, pared-down look. The one key accessory? A simple, centre-parted hairstyle.

BEAR HUG

Shaggy textural coats and jackets add a decadent feel to autumns evening wear. Contrast nubbly shearling or dense feather pieces with plush velvets, silks or lace. Complete the look with some chunky high heel ankle boots.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY


Tonight im having a few school girlfriends for dinner.. so been busy in the kitchen last night preparing the food and will upload my new recipe's later in the week. HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

GO WITH THE FLOW

Spring's flowing maxi gowns ripple and float around the body, revealing as much as they conceal





STYLE TIP #1: focus on the neckline. A decorative jewelled collar adds punch to a graphic halter top
STYLE TIP #2: billowing slash-front skirts show off legs from top to toe: no tights allowed

Here comes the bride




Brides, Grooms, Bridesmaids, Gowns.. thats what is ON my mind. Started my freelance assistant position with FAIRLADY magazine on Thursday, and even though it has only been two days. They have been incredibly fun! Went gown sourcing yesterday first stop was Gavin Rajah. My word. No words can explain these bridal gowns. Then onto Lady Marmalaide in Claremont where my heart stopped beating when I saw this tulle skirt and bodice top wedding gown and lastly a little wedding store outside Cavendisch- it was filled with propper wedding gowns, big poofy over the top gowns with full skirts and a trail.. While sourcing in the store, a bride to be was having her dress fitting. She was sobbing with happiness with her bridesmaids- it was so precious! Bring on the next three weeks of bridal soucing, studio shoots, styling, the main shoot in Hermanus and lots of wedding stories!

its the LONG weekend baby!













HAVE A LOVELY LONG WEEKEND EVERYONE :)
