My 5 Statement Necklaces That Seem To Work With Every Outfit!

My 5 Statement Necklaces That Seem To Work With Every Outfit!

 

I love statement necklaces and since they’ve been ‘in’ for a while now, when shopping it seem like there are absolutely gorgeous ones everywhere you look! … And if you’re anything like me you probably want them all! Sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming and if you’ve started a collection of your own it can be quite time consuming to try and choose the perfect one to go with your outfit every time you get dressed! From my own little collection, I’ve noticed that I seem to have five statement necklaces from which at least one will go with almost any outfit that I put on! So I thought I would share them with you guys … maybe it can help narrow down your decisions when shopping or choosing which ones to wear too!Smile

A Topshop Stand Alone Store Will be Opening in V&A Waterfront!:)

A Topshop Stand Alone Store Will be Opening in V&A Waterfront!:)

So a few months ago I wrote about my extreme excitement about a Top Shop pop-up-shop opening in Unknown Union on Kloof Street, and a few months later we found out that a real Topshop stand alone store is opening in Sandton at the end of November … While this was great news for fashionistas in Johannesburg, it was kind of a bummer for us residents of Cape Town who thought we still won’t have access to one of their stand alone stores that carry their latest, trendiest merchandise … until now that is! We just got great news that a Topshop stand alone store will indeed be opening at V&A Waterfront in the first quarter of 2013!Smile … Yay!!Smile

Bebe Clothing Stores is Opening in Canal Walk! … Yay!:)

So when I was in Canal Walk yesterday, I saw a huge sign saying ‘Bebe coming soon’ and I nearly did a little jump for joy right there in the middle of the mall!

Head to Toe White …. Simple but Striking!

Head to Toe White …. Simple but Striking!

Has anyone noticed the amount of celebs dawning white from head to toe lately?  In the last week so many celebs have made best dressed lists wearing all white outfits and I absolutely love it! I think an all white outfit; while seemingly plain, makes a striking statement.  It’s bold, sexy and classy all at the same time! It’s also the perfect inspiration for Spring/Summer summer looks which is what we need here in Cape Town, South Africa! Also,a long time ago I worked in a swimwear store and one thing I learned about the colour white is that it can give almost anybody a nice hint of colour! Stark white against the skin can give you a tan/flushed look … which is one of the reasons why it’s so flattering on most people!

Inspiration To Get Us Through A Gloomy Mid Winter Monday

Inspiration To Get Us Through A Gloomy Mid Winter Monday

Since Mondays are generally gloomy days; having a dull, cloudy, cold mid- winter Monday like we had in Cape Town today can be just plain depressing and not to mention, totally uninspiring! Even though I love dressing up, when the weather is like this all I want to do is curl up in a ball and stay in my pyjamas all day!  If there’s such a thing a ‘dressers’ block’ (ie. not being able to think of anything to wear even though you have a cupboard full of clothes!), it is exactly what happens to me when the weather is like this! So to mend this situation, I thought some inspirational fashion and beauty quotes might help to pick us up and motivate us to look and feel good about ourselves for the rest of this mid-winter week!Continue reading

Topshop is coming to South Africa! … Just one more reason to be happy about my life!:)

Topshop is coming to South Africa! … Just one more reason to be happy about my life!:)

When I was living in the Middle East I worked for a major retailer that ran and operated a lot of different internationally known stores and brands, one of them being Topshop!  Of course that meant that in the two years I lived in the Middle East I did a LOT of shopping there and inevitably it became one of my favourite stores to shop at! Unfortunately, since my move to South Africa made me unable to shop there any longer, I’ve had to suffer the consequences of having some major withdrawal symptoms … A slight depression when longing for their clothes on my body could be one way of describing it!  Fortunately, I no longer have to grieve! According to this article in Glamour.co.za Topshop will be opening it’s doors right here in Cape Town on July 12th!Smile  (This is when I do my happy dance singing ‘I’m so excited! …’!)Continue reading

So here is a roundup of  some of my favourite fashion and beauty looks from the 2012 MTV Music Awards show SmileContinue reading
