Summer Throws:

I've been a bit quiet on the blog lately. It's the holiday season and it's so hard to get my mind into work mode. I'm sure you can all relate. When I do manage to do some work, you should know it's because I think it was well worth the post.

I recently collaborated with Raeesah Randeree, who you all know for being a very talented make up artist. She's a woman of many other talents and ventures too! One of her new ventures which I was privileged to be a part of are these elegant throw overs.  

Raeesah wanted to make these throw overs available to the public, since so many people showed interest in them when she wore them herself. After wearing them, I can clearly see why. They're so effortless and light weight. It's the perfect addition to any summer outfit. In fact I think it would be great over swimwear too. My absolute favourite was the wine colour throw, it adds an elegance to any outfit which is why I love it.

If you'd like to place your orders contact on Instagram. Stock should be available for dispatch at the end of the month. How exciting!

Prices are as follows:
Plain throws: R650

Printed throws: R750

Please note that there are only a limited amount of orders being taken per style. If I were you, I'd order mine now.

My UFL Style Feature:

I recently had the privilege of being featured in the online magazine UFL Africa. UFL stands for Urban, Fashion, Lifestyle. Elijah the founder of the magazine interviewed me to get my perception of style.

To see more of what he posted about me visit his website: under the ''about style'' tab.

Here's a teaser of one of the outfit posts we shot for the magazine:

Top: Factorie
Culottes: Zara
Jacket: Zara
Shoes: Gifted to me
Backpack: Gifted to me 

I will be posting more of the looks soon so be sure to keep a look out on my social media accounts.

In the interview, I was asked the question what style meant to me. My response was easy. Style is being yourself and not following trends. We all fall victim to trends because of what's in stores but I strongly believe that whether a trend is "in" or "out", you should wear whatever YOU like.

I used the example of wearing a tutu to work as "my style". I simply wear anything I like.

On a side note before I end this post, I would like to say that besides local fashion designers, my favourite place to shop stylish clothing is Zara. A word to the wise, if you're looking to stock up on stylish clothing for the new year, Zara is on sale at the moment. I bought such cute dresses and jumpsuits for just R200 each. 

You're welcome! :)
