Oversized Scarf & Fringed Denim

November 16, 2015

So, it’s been a while. And by while I mean a couple of months. Apologies, my friends. But I am back, in London that is. For my final honours year assignment, I was required to complete a one month internship, so I headed to London for mine, as one does. And I don’t want to leave, despite the constant running nose, daily sweat feasts in the tube and the sun going down at 16:30. For all of those reasons, and…

For the past month or so I have been trying to secure an internship for the end of the year as part of my final honours year requirement. I’ve done a few short internships (more like vac work) during the last 5 years but have never entered the corporate world. As much as I am enamoured with fashion and creating beautiful things, I thought this was a good opportunity to have a fresh experience and test out new waters. Because this…

Bag Lust List

July 27, 2015

  As it says in How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, ” It’s not an accessory, it’s your home.” A woman’s bag, much like every other piece of clothing, is an extension of her personality, but the difference lies in the faithful and enduring relationship that lies between a woman and her bag. Most women have one bag that remains an appendage for years, or at most, few bags through which they constantly rotate. Naturally, then, your bag must be…

  There’s nothing quite as relaxing as a trip to the mountains during winter (sans skiing and snowboarding, of course). Cabins overlooking infinite mountains, watching movies in front of the fire and evening walks. Although, my last trip to the Drakensberg was a bit more electrifying that any of the previous ones. A friend got bucked off a horse* on one ride and ripped his shirt on branches when his horse walked through a mini forest on another ride; the South African…

The Poncho

July 11, 2015

Ever since my first trip to New York back in 2012, I have been obsessing over ponchos. One morning, while walking on the famed streets trapped by never ending skyscrapers, I saw a woman in brown chelsea boots, faded blue skinny  jeans and an aztec poncho. And while the word ‘aztec’ in that sentence may throw many of you off, she was the most chic. Take my word for it. From that morning it became a mission of mine to find the…

Winter Holiday Lust List

July 8, 2015

A good book is essential for most holidays, especially excursions into the mountains – and by books, I am am not referring to “Top 10 Things to Do in…” or “The Essential Guide to…”. Currently, I am stuck in “How to be Parisian Where ever You Are”, of course, and, naturally, as I do anything remotely related to Paris, I am loving it. Next on my list is Alexa Chung’s book, and, yes I know, I am far behind the…

In the Mountains

July 6, 2015

I’ve basically been wearing the same oversized sweater and jeans with zip detail for most of my Drakensburg trip. When the majority of your day is made up of long walks and lazy afternoons spent on the couch watching Wimbledon, you tend to put on what makes you most comfortable. But, after an exhilarating canopy tour through the Drakensburg forest, my energy levels increased slightly. For those that don’t know, this is a tour via zip-lines through the trees, and…

This blog is often a testament of my patience. Whether it be forgoing a whole blog post as the pictures didn’t turn out as imagined or, like in this case, your camera went a bit nuts and your images are tiny. And I mean tiny. Patience tested. One’s mood always has a major effect on their level of patience. I was either going to throw my laptop against the wall or breath deeply a few times and make a time to…

So, it’s been over a month. I apologise. First it was exam studying keeping me from anything enjoyable in life and then, as it tends to, life got very much in the way. But I’m back and since the last post, winter has certainly arrived in full force. This post was shot during a cold front so please forgive the puffy, watery eyes that came with the icy wind I was enduring. But I am not complaining – I have been…

Block It

May 19, 2015

      If anyone has been keeping up with my outfit posts both here and on Instagram, you’ll notice a current theme – this shirt. I’ve noticed that every time I want to whip out the camera and shoot a look post, I’m wearing this damn shirt. It’s come to the point where I can’t post the last look I shot until I have a few other outfit posts to fill in the repeat offender gaps. Lately, my work ethic has been…
