My take on trends, titbits from the local (South Africa) and international fashion scenes, guest columns (like model diaries) pretty editorials & the occasional insight into the local acting industry (my other passion). Also, stuff from around life- I'm nothing if not specific!

So much to post, so little time to do it! I must admit I'm a tad behind in my posts. I have big plans for this humble blog in the coming months, if only there were more than 24 hours in the day (I've tried eating BarOne's to see if that would work...―
Say the name "Tommy Hilfiger" and you are immediately transported to images of all-American fun; preppy sweaters and skirts, stripes, nautical-inspired clothes and cool, clean, understated leisurewear. ∙ On Wednesday I attended the launch ...―
Having dropped the Yves and now going by the infinitely more badass-sounding Saint Laurent and with a new designer, the rather spooky-looking Hedi Slimane at the helm, it was only a matter of time until the French fashion house made some serious...―
Winter is coming... I can no longer hear or say that without thinking about Game Of Thrones and I don't even watch Game Of Thrones! Regardless, one cannot deny that the nights are getting longer and the days are getting frostier. I can't pretend ...―
In an arid desert where gypsy meets nomad, a derelict circus stands like something from the narrative of a twisted novel. Captured between the pages of Vogue Australia, the lovely Liu Wen poses in the half-light and the clown plays to a solemn...―
Dolce & Gabbana were never really big on my fashion radar but their past three seasons have changed everything. I am so in love with what this Italian duo has been doing of late; it is as though they have reached into the wildest corners of my...―
Not as much of a scorcher in Cape Town today as yesterday was so I'm breaking out the maxi skirt (these are my latest obsession and I already have several winter ones patiently waiting in my closet). I picked up this pleated coral beauty in a ...―
The red carpet at last night's 85th Academy Awards was a magpie's dream world as Hollywood's most wanted turned out in shades of gold, glitz, sequins and sparkles. On the flipside of the coin were softer pastel hues, whites and a dash of romance....―
I never considered myself a market person, not that I was against the idea, it just didn't form part of my life. Living at home and waitressing while studying gave me plenty of disposable income so I didn't mind paying R800 for a pair of jeans, ...―
Just before Autumn/Winter NY Fashion Week kicked off, some of the top fashion houses in the world showed off their haute couture collections in a final, fantastical hurrah to Spring/Summer 2013 down the catwalks of "Paree". Here are some of my...―
A recent gem that I have discovered is the eclectic vintage treasure trove, Deer Hunter. Tucked away on Albert Street, Woodstock just past the Old Biscuit Mill, this boutique and coffee shop is kitted out in shades of Tiffany Blue & red &...―
The 2013 Golden Globes was held in Tinseltown on Sunday, and this year I did not stay up to watch it live (on the DSTV I no longer have *sniff sniff*), but watched it with most of SA last night, so forgive me for being a day late on this. ∙ ...―
I may not be able to use a sewing machine, but I do still love a good fashion DIY! ...
