Was at this morning's launch of new radio station Power FM. As you perhaps know, Given Mkhari is the station chairman and his wife and kids were present at the early morning launch. Couldn't help asking his wife Ipeleng for a snap. She looks amazing in this peplum suit. Love that purple LV purse too! Power to her! That's one of their kids standing there next to her. Nunus!

When I get dressed, whether that be in the morning or just before an event, I am very much conscious of the fact that people will always have something to say. With that in mind, I always try to look as best as I think I can using the guy in the mirror as my critic. He can be quite hard on me, I tell you. Being the self conscious person I am more than happy to admit that I am, the one question I always ask myself is; are you happy? I used to be part of the league of liars who say they don't care what people think, but trust me we all do. What's the point of so much effort otherwise? Yes, getting compliments is always nice, I admit, but I won't smash my face against the wall if I don't get any.
Anyway. When I went to visit my designer friend Abiah Superstar to borrow clothes from his and my other bud Brad Muttitt's Amen Couture rail, the outfit I wanted to wear came together in less than ten minutes. Gold print leggings, cropped jacket, bead neckpiece... the black poloneck only later became part of the ensemble after I decided the PVC vest I had would be a bit over the top (for my liking)! I liked this look very much because it worked perfectly with my taste for the androgynous. For some the outfit seemed too "out there"- unfortunately, there's no mobile app to update the software in human brains. For some, as one Facebook friend stated, it came across as safe in comparison to what is out there in terms of experimental dressing. This here though was no experiment, neither was it a concerted effort to get people talking. It's what felt good to me. I love to glam it up, sometimes, and the Red Carpert themed Revlon party was the perfect opportunity to do so... on my own terms!


I was one of several people who were left jaw dropped when radio host Anele Mdoda won an award at last year's style awards. What for, exactly? I asked. The truth, I have learnt, is that Mdoda does, probably more so now than before, step out in something that makes you go 'wow'. This, for me,  includes what she wore at those very same SA Style Awards- a Loin Cloth and Ashes print jumpsuit and Babatunde bow tie. She pulled the look off so casually in an event where people rock up in cocktail numbers and last week Thursday she did it again at the Revlon party to announce Bonang Matheba as their SA ambassador. It was definitely a victory! Goes to show that style does not always have to scream. In fact; the less the better!

So, Bonang is the new face of Revlon South Africa and little me was at the campaign launch. She is the first ambassador to be appointed outside of the US. That is some big shit y'all! My guuuurl!!!


How fancy, schmancey are this Coke Light bottles? They are the result of a collabo between the soft drinks brand and fashion designer Marc Jacobs. Both are celebrating 30 years of 'doing it' with style and taste. I have a thing for pretty things and I guess because of this my Coke addiction is one that is not about to go away. *shrugs*

Everyone who knows me well enough knows that Prada is one of my most favourite brands when it comes to shades. I think I have about three pairs acquired this year alone and I was looking to add to this collection of Pradas when I went to Sunglass Hut yesterday (Rosebank is my favourite branch and this is simply because Evard, the manager, is just amazing at customer service. He makes you feel like a valued customer at all times). Looking around the store changed my mind. I found my eyes moving away from the Prada stand, landing on this very particular pair of catseye Miu Miu shades. Now, everyone knows that Prada is the parent of Miu Miu, right? Didn't stray too far from home, now did I? I love my baby Pradas.. Miu Mius, I mean!

Came across this guy at the Gautrain station and I liked the simplicity in his dress sense. I think he is very well dressed. There's an effortlessness to it that really caught my eye, so when we got to Rosebank station from Sandton where we both boarded, I realised he was also getting off the train and followed him outside just get a pic!
