And Lollipops in YOU magazine

August 24, 2012

“Clouds, Chu wants to features bloggers in YOU magazine. He needs us tomorrow at 1.” That was a call I received from Leigh one day, slap-bang in the middle of a work week.

YOU magazine Fashion Director Chu with photographer Megan.

“I can’t, Leigh. I’m working and I already took a days’ leave yesterday for admin,” I groaned as pains of sadness and desolation emitted from my heart. “B***S***,” she screeched. “It’s Chu! You cannot miss this. Call in sick and I’ll see you tomorrow.” Then silence. She’d hung up knowing me being there was a fait accompli.

I love this guy.

Here’s the deal. Chu Suwannapha is the hottest style guru / fashion director in town. He’d just moved from Fair Lady magazine to take up reins at YOU. He’s first concept shoot was to feature one grey t-shirt styled five different ways by everyday women off the street. Taking pity Having so much love and respect for unpaid, abused bloggers, he chose; Karisa from MyLoveAffairWithCapeTown, Kumari from StyleSociety, Leigh from LipglossIsMyLife, Carlinn from SuperficialGirls and me.

I’m in uber-stylish company

And that’s how we landed up on page 38 of YOU Magazine 30 August issue as fashion models. (I’ll pause for you to smile and shake your head in awe disbelief) This is what I wore.

Grey t-shirt from Trenery, R347
Blue & black houndstooth jacket by WWW at Foschini, R470. Turquoise skinny jeans by News at Foschini, R260. Handbag from Accessorize, R499.
Emerald green platform heels from Fashion Express, R180

Thank you darling Chu, in-house photographer Megan Miller, hair & make-up stylist Algria for a fabulous day on set, and Janine from BeingBrazen who recommended us. I loved every minute of it.

Happy Women’s Month, fabulous ladies.

love & light
