My interview with Grant Davison on HCSVNTDRCNS.com

Womens Month Grant Davison Clouds Drummond

I had plans for Women’s Months. Big plans. I wanted to adopt a ‘No explanation needed’ attitude, start saving for a holiday and buy that ever-elusive nude trench coat. I also wanted to raise the profile of women who inspire me. You know, take-over-the-world kind of stuff.

Well, August flew by in haze. What happened?

I’m still working on saying no without feeling guilty, still hiding from my credit card statement, and that trench has yet to find me. The empowering women bit is a little more interesting.  Continue reading

Seven tips on how to wear floral for spring 2017

Florals Spring 2017

Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking. We all know the disdain with which Miranda Priestly hissed these lines in The Devil Wears Prada. Since then, I’ve looked for a different approach to the season, and failed. Floral prints define spring so why fight it? After being subjected to months of caramel, grey and black there’s nothing more refreshing than a bouquet explosion. To avoid looking like granny’s couch, here are seven tips on how to wear floral for spring 2017.

Man up in pants suits.

Wear with leather.

Chose deconstructed or abstract prints

Play with symmetry.

Be bold.

Accessorise. Accessorise. Accessorise.

Have fun. Who knew florals would work with stripes.

It doesn’t matter where you chose to buy your items from, as long as its a good quality fabric, suits your body shape and works with your current wardrobe. The rest is up to smart styling. My floral top is a new purchase form Zara, as are the suede heels from Woolworths. The leather clutch was bought when Topshop first opened in Cape Town in 2013 (Read that crazy post here) My J-Brand navy skinny’s were purchased from Shop Label, my favourite store in Constantia Village, about two years ago.

Happy Monday, stylish ones.
