As with shoes, I am crazy about bags and believe there are at least 5 Styles of Handbags you need to have in your wardrobe. While handbags are mainly functional, they can also be the ultimate fashion accessory.[Read more…]
Winter has hit the Cape in earnest, which means adding even more layers to your outfit! One of my favourite fashion accessories and a great way to keep warm is a scarf.[Read more…]
Something I love about Winter, besides red wine, is fashion! Winter is all about warmer knitwear, boots, coats and lots of layering. One of the top trends that I love this year is the cardigan. Cardigans are incredibly versatile, and there are so many fabulous styles available this season. So I thought I would share a few of my favourite looks.[Read more…]
My eyes are extremely light-sensitive, so wearing Sunglasses is a must for me. I have owned many pairs over the years, from super expensive brands to rather inexpensive ones. Of late other priorities have meant that a new pair of sunnies is quite far down the list. Needless to say, when Slaughter & Fox approached me to try out a pair of their sunglasses, I was not going to turn down the offer! [Read more…]
I seem to live in either leggings or jeans during the week, unless I am attending an event, as they are comfy and practical. My go-to leggings are usually black, because they go with just about anything and black hides a multitude of imperfections! When I received an email to review the Ready-to-Wow! ™ Spanx Structured Leggings, I was super excited to try them!
Spanx Structured Leggings
The Ready-to-Wow! ™ Spanx Structured Leggings have a built-in, shape your silhouette waistband and are completely opaque. The shaping waistband fully flattens your tummy, which is great for those wobbly bits and love handles. The Spanx Structured Leggings keep your butt and thighs looking better than ever and enhance all your “assets”. This is particularly appealing to me as I have always had a bit a larger “bootie”!
Made from deluxe fabric, they feel as amazing on, as they make your body look! The Spanx Structured Leggings are an extremely versatile wardrobe essential. You can wear them with boots and a loose fit knit in colder months or with trainers and a cute T-shirt in warmer weather.
I love the”sports luxe” look, especially as a busy mom, who is in and out of the car most of the day. Although functional, the look is still sexy and put-together!
The thing I love most about Spanx leggings, is the extra body confidence they give you, as they fit in all the right places. As well as flattering all your good bits, they hide your potential problem areas, which you are less confident about. The most important aspect of body confidence is to love the body you have and to learn how to dress it, to help accentuate your best features! So all in all the Spanx leggings get a big thumbs up from me!

Winter Fashion 2015
I always thought that my favourite season was summer but over the past few years I have really gotten into the winter vibe – especially when it comes to Winter Fashion! I still do not like running around in the rain but Winter Fashion almost makes it bearable.
A recent trip to the UK sent me scurrying around trying to find a few winter essentials before I set off on my trip. Even though it was March in London, the weather was still rather cold! Certainly cold enough for thicker jackets and boots. I will do another post, which will features a few of my Winter Fashion Finds. For now, I thought I would share my Winter Fashion Inspiration, as you can definitely feel the chill in the air in Cape Town and winter fast approaching!
My ultimate style crush is Jessica Alba – I really love her casual, yet chic, “I woke up like this” approach to fashion. She never looks over-styled, just well put together, projecting effortless style.
She also happens to the queen of “the hat” – she loves hats and somehow always manages to pull off the look, no matter the outfit or season!
Winter fashion is all about layering! Starting with your basic long Tshirts or thin knits and building on that to create and overall well put together look, which is both warm and stylish.
Last but certainly not least! It is all about the boot! Whether they are long, short, slouch or classic – you need to have a selection of boots in your shoe wardrobe! My favourite at the moment, are slouch boots but lace-up ones, similar to the pair Jessica is wearing in the image below.
I hope you find some inspiration from the post for your winter wardrobe. Please check back for more fashion and style inspiration soon!
