Nyasha Matonhodze x Louis Vuitton

I'm really excited about the new face of Louis Vuitton's A/W 11 Campaign, Zimbabwean born British teen Nyasha Matonhodze.  She's only just turned 16 & is already causing quite a stir in the international modelling scene.

I think she's absolutely gorgeous & can't help feeling proud that she's (sort of) a home grown girl making waves globally.

Spence Online & Missibaba JHB pop-up sale

I am sooo excited for the Spence & Missibaba pop up sale at Arts on Main this Sunday 29th May.   And it's on at the same time as the Market on Main (10-3pm) so there's no excuse not to go.  Was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Missibaba bags today when they got delivered and I can't wait!!
Check out the fb event:

Cannes you deal?

I've finally recovered from the absolutely surreal 7 days I had last week in Cannes.  Please note that by "recovered" I mean, I'm finally cured from post-French Riviera- back- to- reality depression syndrome and am ready to continue with my chosen path in life.
There are no words to describe the sheer awesomery that is the French Riviera in Summer.  As I'm sure you can tell it was my first time there but certainly not my last; I will have to return to collect my soul which understandably refused to return with me.

So on day 1 we arrived & got invited to an exclusive Kanye West party & private performance.  Yes he was there.  And yes he performed for like an hour and half. And yes it was awesome.  Naomi Campbell, Leo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Pharrel & Quincy Jones thought so too.

 Did I mention that Pharrel (my old friend from McDonald's Grayston) opened for Kanye so it was a double bonus.

The picture below is Jamie Foxx (who also just decided to jump on stage & help Kanye sing "Golddigger")

And there was Monaco...oh Monte Carlo...WHAT a beautiful city.  So clean and fabulous ...and empty.  Look at this picture.  There is NO ONE in the street because so few people ACTUALLY live there.

I really started to wonder why I don't have a yacht.... life just seems so much better on a yacht... sigh...

Look at the name of this shop that I'm standing in front of... (hee hee!)

Gosh! And the food.  Lawd!! Did we eat?? But what are holidays for right if not for gorging yourself on anything and everything delicious.
 These are my two lovely friends Sedi & Ivanka wearing locally designed dresses.  Can't remember the name of the designer right now but will get back to you on that.

Fashion Fridays - Hello Winter!

Well, the 3rd Fashion Fridays held at my store (Twenty Two) last Friday was another success & lotsa fun as usual.  I just love how super stylish JHB peeps can be when they set their minds to it.  There are big plans for our little 'Local is Lovely' campaign but all will be revealed in the very near future.  You can go check out the rest of the pics from that night at or . Mcwah!

street style...

For my own sanity and future well being I think I need to move to a city where people who dress like this generally roam the streets. These pics are courtesy of the ICONIA magazine street style blog which you can look at in full here ... *swoon*!

*sneaky royal wedding post*

I SWORE to myself I would avoid blogging about the Royal Wedding because I'm sure the whole world is royal wedding'd out by now but LAWD HA MERCY Victoria Beckam looked good!! I just can't get over how stylish and gorgeous she looked in that amazing dress from her own line, those killer Louboutin heels & Philip Treacy hat.  She IS the definition of fabulous!  And let's face it; no handbag ever made could top that arm candy she's sporting in this picture.  Some girls just have all the luck!!
