While it lasted it was fun yet incredibly overwhelming, music, fashion, all-around-vibes wise. Now that it’s gone… I kinda miss it. That’s the thing you see about music festivals – they creep and crawl under your skin, until you realise you’re actually a rascal with a penchant for comfort. And if you love the music, the fashion, and the beautiful people, you’re doomed to enjoy the festival, to get slightly overwhelmed by the crowd, and miss the chaos of it all once it’s over. Testimony of it all are the tons of photos we took, the blisters on my feet, the flu I’m still fighting // READ MORE…

Once upon a time (aka about 3 weeks ago) I wore all white (rare case scenario) and stumbled upon some turquoise background in the middle of the city (rare situation as well.) Unfortunately it wasn’t the ocean, but when life gives you lemons you fucking make lemonade. Or mojitos. On that day I had my face on, my empowering lips (dark seems to be my go-to colour when all else fails) AND my dainty necklaces from Starharvest Jewellery.  Although my look is rather strong with a dash of 90s reminiscence as my photographer likes to say, I thought the dainty pieces make a fab contrast. // READ MORE…

There are gold people and then there are silver people. I am certainly the former, but every now and then I’ll take a dip into the silver team and actually truly enjoy it. Such was the situation a month ago when I decided to drape myself in blue (again not a very seldom drive in my case) and wear the silver pearl set I got from Star Harvest Jewellery.  They’ve been so kind to gift me this silver set and 2 more golden pieces that I’ll show you in a future blogpost, that I feel incredibly blessed. Their brand is solely focused on quality jewellery // READ MORE…

They said 2016 is all about oversized jackets and new sartorial crushes, aka ‘can we please try a little harder than the already too-worn leather jacket?! Thank you.’ My prayers were answered – a jacket that has it all, but it’s not leather – has arrived. Actually it’s got superpowers, and tons of swag, and versatility, and I can sometimes wear it to the gym, and sometimes to work, and sometimes for meetings when I pair it with uber posh outfits. It’s sporty and casual, with a retro-college reminiscence that gives it incredible sophistication when I pair it with smarter outfits. My Captain America Varsity Jacket // READ MORE…

There are dresses, and then there are DRESSES. When it comes to CECILY dresses – my favourite dresses brand for office & events – that’s how I cut a long story short. And trust me this is coming from a woman whose eyes wander more often than not over to edgier and sometimes more extravagant pieces. But, if my age and sartorial adventures have taught me anything it’s that sometimes classic and luxurious are winning tickets. You can never, in a million years beat a classic cut dress, perfect for office or even some more formal events. Sure, you can give it a slight edge and twist // READ MORE…

That I’m as quick tempered as a storm, and fiery as fire can get is no surprise, so there is really no wow factor to the fact that I feel at my mostest when draped in red. Yeah, yeah I know, what a cliche. But when I’m wearing red and a gorgeous dress like the one in this post I’m again walking as if Beyonce and I are singing “I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want.” Damn right. And we strut. We don’t walk. I’ve been dying to wear this dress for a long time and let me just say that the // READ MORE…

Right about the time ‘Sex And The City’ was breaking through and Carrie was causing commotions with her looks and her beautiful name necklace, that’s right about the same time I started coveting her style AND decided that all I ever wanted was a name necklace of my own. Forward a few years later (okay, tones of years later) and ta-daaa! my wish not only came true, but I was happy it did. Cause you know sometimes you think you want something up until you actually get it, and then you realise you don’t want it anymore. Yeah, not the case here, hence the title. // READ MORE…

If you’d have told me that day would be one of the best, I’d have said you’d gone completely mad, with no respect whatsoever for my splitting hangover, and my ultimate level of laziness. I mean you can’t beat a Saturday lazy as fuck situation. Oh man, but you wooed me with that 60s music I was so into, and with those green eyes, and that smile. Goddamn. Also there was no food left in the fridge, and I was having my healthy moment crisis of no more pizza, so I decided to get my shit together, put my face on, and hit the farmer’s // READ MORE…

Much like anything great in life – relationships, love, chemistry, friendship, fun, laziness, inspiration – you can’t force a great outfit. It just doesn’t happen. You’d think it only has to do with the actual clothes, but no. C’mon, even we are not that shallow. A great outfit is a perfect combo of what you’re wearing, with how you’re feeling, your details, state of mind, mood, great light, great hair day, great face day, et all. And also, you never want to waste a great #OOTD on a basic situation, right? Well I am bloody grateful I waited to drape myself in cappuccino and cream // READ MORE…

And then he looked up from under his green eyes and said, ‘Hey kid, let’s go be wild cats this Saturday, sip wine out the bottle, live in expensive hotel rooms, and make some movie memories for when we’re grey and old.’  If I decided to sleep on my couch all weekend, wearing the same pjs, watching the best movies, and pigging out on massive amounts of pizzas, a.k.a. ‘Dear life, sitting this one out.’ – chances are the weather would be perfect: sun shining, perfect light, warm wind blowing, birds singing my fave tunes, people dancing all around, no clouds on my sky, but // READ MORE…
