Winter 2020:  Fashion Highlights

Winter 2020: Fashion Highlights

Our reality has changed, and with that, the entire fashion and beauty industry. This is where we find ourselves. You can either stay in your bed until it is all over or you can get up, get dressed, put on a mask and do something positive.  I am going for the latter,...

Wardrobe Basics

With everything that is happening in the world right now, I think it is inevitable that we look at what is essential.  Whether you live in Cape Town, Paris, or New York everyone is affected. We now have time to reflect on what is important and what we really need in...
Cape Town Date Night:  Who are you dressing for?

Cape Town Date Night: Who are you dressing for?

You are preparing for a date with your man.  But have you asked him what he would like you to wear? We seem to have assumed a very self-involved focus these days. We know what colour, style and fabric suits us (contact me if you do not!) and what trends are in fashion...
Summer Trends

Summer Trends

Shopping can be overwhelming for many women. As a stylist, I too spend time browsing the internet and paging through magazines for what the season holds. The great thing about dressing in our current day, is that it is less about what is in fashion. Today, it is about...

Avoiding Hibernation

Avoiding Hibernation

  A wonderfully long, cold and wet season lies ahead.  This means it is time to bring out your warmest layers and revisit your winter wardrobe that might not have been fully utilized last year. So, taking my own advice, I went through my entire wardrobe and...
Time for Quality and Comfort

Time for Quality and Comfort

A year of many changes requires a different outlook to your wardrobe.  It is time to focus on quality, comfort items that you love, rather than many items that are just okay. Investment pieces, made mostly from natural materials, are the better buy.  Here are some...
Bring Back the Romance

Bring Back the Romance

Have we become a society devoid of romance? The year is in full swing and I find myself wondering what to make of the current world situation.  Have we become a selfish society running from one place to the next, or is there still time to think of other people and...
