How to wear Gen Z Yellow

August 14, 2018

This daffodil coloured trend earned its stripes last year when it kicked Millenial Pink into oblivion. I wasn’t a fan until I received a Michael Kors handbag for Christmas and did a bit of an “oooh hello”. A pair of suede heels followed last month which was needed to jazz up a brown knitted dress. At the event I attended, they literally took on a life of their own. I am now officially in love so here’s how to wear Gen Z Yellow with absolute confidence.

If you’re conservative like me, stick to accessories. If you’re blonde or have a yellow undertone to your skin,  consider wearing the colour on the bottom half of your body. For the rest of you, go bananas. It’s fun and unashamedly flirty.

Are you convinced yet?  Tell me what you think or what you already have. I bet it’s delicious.
Have fun, stylish ones.
love and light

CDx Champagne Taittinger giveaway

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some love with you. To celebrate my birthday month, here are the bubbles I promised you in my previous post and something luxurious to make you feel yummy.

Taittinger South Africa is generously gifting you a bottle of Champagne Taittinger Brut Reserve, a bottle stopper, a keyring and a candle in an authentic Champagne bottle with the original label. I need to mention the candle’s authenticity as the ones you’ll find at Cavendish are MCC bottles and the labels are printed photos. No fakes allowed here.

Women’s Month 2018: Support small businesses with Word Power

August 1, 2018

I’d intended to commence Women’s Month with a fanfare of bubbles. Instead, I’ve been inspired to share this idea which I hope you’ll indulge me in. Don’t worry, the bubbles are coming.

I don’t know about you but I always feel pressured to do something amazing for Women’s Month. Last year, Grant Davison wrote a daily post about women who inspired him, and I’m humbled to say, I was featured too. Thank you, Mr G.

Then there are the companies who are supporting charities, Instagrammers are sharing personal battles they’ve overcome. Some women are even liberating themselves by going makeup free. Colour me vain or weak but I can’t just yet.

It’s all so overwhelming and intimidating, where does one begin?

SA Menswear Week SS19 – ThrowAway Twenty

July 12, 2018

When I saw ThrowAway Twenty on the SA Menswear Week SS19 show schedule, I wondered where the hell event owner Simon Deiner was digging these people out from? I’d never heard of ’em. Haha, it’s evident I don’t know much because this me eating humble pie.

Designers Rome Wepener and Lana Eslin describe themselves as, ‘an unapologetic menswear brand for boys and guys. We are all about offbeat and suave design with a youthful tongue-in-cheek point of view’.  You don’t need much more than that so let’s take a look.

SA Menswear Week SS19 – Chulaap by Chu Suwannapha

July 10, 2018

I want each of you to leave a comment below on an alternate introduction I could use for Chulaap at SS Menswear Week SS19 – or subsequent seasons for that matter. The reason I’m asking is that I’m constantly repeating myself. Designer Chu Suwannapha always brings a show to an absolute standstill – before it explodes into a rapture of absolute awe. I always sit there wondering how could such a quiet, charming, humble man pack so much punch. I couldn’t tell you, so do what I do. Enjoy!
