Versace's H&M collection revealed!

I posted some pics a few weeks ago about the pending Versace collection for H&M and now finally pictures of the entire collection have been revealed.  There are some really lovely pieces in the collection and they really are affordable... I mean one of the dresses generally ranges from 129.99 - 149.99 pounds (don't know how to do a pound symbol on this new laptop).  I wasn't so sure about the collection initially but now I can say with certainty that I like it.  It's fun, sexy, has all the Versace-isms and doesn't look like Versace's weird cousin from Boksburg (no offense to Boksburg dwellers - we still love you:-).

Interview for Vodacom Colour

Check out my interview for Vodacom Colour done by my good friend Jamal Nxedlana of 


H&M Winter 2012

H&M needs to hurry up & come to SA.  Found this link for an online petition to bring H&M to SA. It's been there for a while but let's sign it guys!! We can't live like this anymore!! 
How amazing is this range?!?  Love the colour blocking and the use of brights considering how dreary winter collections can be *books plane ticket*.

Zara Autumn Lookbook 2011

I am over the moon that Zara will be gracing our shores in the VERY near future.  Really hoping they won't short change us in the clothing dept & we can see some of these goodies next season...


Double Wow!

This look is so cool

This is how I would like to look


Mad about Messeca

I've recently discovered & fallen in love with NY based shoe brand Messeca.  Will be getting myself a pair or two in the very near future.

Fashion Week beef!!

Oooh chile!! The earrings have come off and the battle of the Fashion Weeks is on!! I can't believe it's even gotten this far.  In case you haven't heard, Milan & Paris Week have decided to ignore requests from London & New York to move the dates of the (next) September shows that are clashing with their shows.  So basically, NYFW starts Sep 13th, Milan on the 19th, London on the 21st and Paris on the 25th with the biggest overlap being between London & Milan.  It's all just a big mess and the global fashion industry is being forced to take sides, not to mention the designers that are showing at both London & Milan. Conde Nast has already issued a statement saying that they won't be attending Milan Fashion Week if they don't move their dates but the Europeans are standing their ground.  What D-for-Drama!! Good to know we're not the only ones with Fashion Week dramas...

Beyonce goes brown

Despite her (very) inconsistent dress sense & nauseating eternal 'good girl' act, I absolutely adore Beyonce.  Not only is she gorgeous & uber talented but she had actually managed to convince me that she was a natural blonde.  This video for one of her new songs, "Countdown", was a serious jolt back to reality.  Love the cereal bowl coiffe below and the contrast bra. Is that the famous baby bump I see too?

'Clueless' circa 1995

It sounds extremely hyperbolic to say that the movie 'Clueless' literally defined who I am as a person today but it really really did! I caught it on TV today and watched it in wide eyed amusement for the 46th time in my life. Yes, I said 46 times! It's really that good. Considering what a giant cringe the fashion of the 90s generally is - this movie was perfectly on point in the fashion department.  This was where, at 10 years old (or so), I first caught wind of the talented Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaia and fell in love with knee high socks, plaid & itty bitty backpacks.  One could even argue that the first time I saw this movie was the beginning of my long & unrequited love affair with all things fashion.  Who knows? What I really want to know is, does the computer that can coordinate your clothes actually exist yet in real life and if so, why don't I have one? 


Jersey Chic

I must confess, I am completely obsessed with all things Jersey- ok not all things- just the orange skinned, high heeled, big haired, over accessorized part.
These girls are like uber females for me... I mean who has the TIME to put on all of that make-up everyday and who could actually stomach wearing those heels while STANDING in a hair salon working all day??  And despite the over-use of spray tan and 80s style teased hair, there's a big part of me that actually aspires to be consistently 100% groomed and looking like I'm going to a party like these girls do.

Street Style: PFW

I really didn't want to post ALL of these pics but they are just spectacular!! These are some of the Paris Fashion Week attendees.  I need to live in a place where people dress like this on the regular... you know what they say though, "be the change you want to see in the world" or something like that.  Whatever.  I need to go shopping.
