SAFW is in it to win it...

It's that time of year again when the SAFW literally dominates our social calendars with all the fun fashion thingies to attend.  I sadly couldn't make it to the Winter collections or the Elle New Talent Show this year because I was busy procreating but I am really looking forward to 'popping' by the SAFW pop up store in Sandton this week (it opened today).  It's a fantastic initiative to help fuse local designers into mainstream retail.  It's also a great place to pick up some great locally designed items and even have a chat with some of the designers if you're lucky.


In similar news - SAFW has also partnered with Edgars and launched the Designer Capsule Collection at the Melrose Arch Edgars store.  This capsule collection will showcase the designs of many of our local favourites such as; Black Coffee, Lunar, Two, Clive Rundle, Colleen Eitzen and Chanelle as well as 2 or 3 rotating designers every month.  How exciting!! And how huge for the designers involved!! I can't wait to go take a look and once again shop up a storm... sigh..  


I would never do this ordinarily because this blog is supposed to be a positive space rather than a critical/ negative one but I just can't stop myself on this one.  
Seriously, WTF was Nicki Minaj wearing... at NY Fashion Week, sitting next to Anna Wintour, AT THE CAROLINA HERRERA SHOW!!! It's just awful on so many levels and I would like it to be known that I am PERSONALLY offended by this outfit and by Nicki Minaj's general presence on this Earth!!

That is all. 
Thank you.

Spring has sprung...

I've always known that I am more partial to warmer climatic conditions but only this winter did I realise that it's so much bigger than a simple weather preference.  I in fact become COMPLETELY miserable & depressive in winter.  I literally lose my will to live.  Moving forward I think I'm just going to hibernate for the entire duration of that horrible season & emerging like a brand new flower bud only at the start of Spring - revivied, refreshed & ready to take on the world.  With that said, NO ONE is more excited than me that it is finally Spring & we can officially kiss the winter blues goodbye.  Moreover, I'm super excited about what's in store for us this Spring/ Summer fashion wise & thought I'd share some of my favourite trends/ looks with you.  As soon as I shed the excess winter layers it's game on!
