Latetly I’ve been feeling very uncertain.  Am I good at what I do ? Do I want to be doing something else that will take me further ? How much money do I want to make ? When will I be happy ? The more I think about it the more I get anxious. And I know how it goes –…

I am invited to quite a few great events, however very few are quite as beautiful as the recent Trenery Guild event I attended. A lunch that  introduced a collaboration between Trenery and a collection of unique South African creatives – amongst them friends of Sanlam Handmade Contemporary – Marie Auon of Saind D’ici and Swaady Martin of Yswara.  It…

I bought this Tongoro Studio dress at the 2017  Sanlam HmC and since then I  haven’t been able to take it off. It is perfect in every single way. Elegant, edgy, made in Africa and above all it makes me feel powerful and delicate all at the same damn time. A masterpeice. Apart from Sanlam HmC opening night, I’ve worn it to…

She took us through Poetry’s spring collection and gave invaluable tips on how to style these garments. Jackie touched on having a minimal approach to fashion as not being…

Winter is coming…When uttered, the words of the Starks, greatest house of Westoros, always cause a chill down my spine. If there is anything to be learnt from the lords of the North, is that you have to be prepared for winter when it hits. With the cold front that has just hit Johannesburg, you have all the reason to…

I’ve truly fallen in love with the skirt and sneaker combo. It says pretty but not delicate. I’m femanine but not girly. Those who get it will get it, and those who don’t – I hope someday you get with it! I wore this outfit to the debut of ‘Feel Good Series’ in Joburg, which had me dancing into the…

Spier’s magic lies its celebration for slow living. The whole property operates as a self-sustaining organism which is never over indulgent, but delicate in its pursuit to give you just the right amount of everything you need.  An ode to farmstyle elegance. In April, my dear friend, Lulama and I were treated to a weekend away at Spier Wine Farm in…

The latter part of the year often brews in me an urge for renewal. From reaffirming the crazy promises I made to myself at the beginning of the year to setting new audacious goals and figuring out how I’m going to make the second half of the year better than the first. It’s a comforting newness because at least I’ve…
