First Blush

May 30, 2014

Is pink the new black this season? Evan pink naysayers may find themselves adorned in one of many shades of pink on offer this season.

Tone it down with a paler shade or spice things up with one of the brighter shades, it’s all on offer this season from blush pink to bubblegum pink.

With so many great winter items available in pink there’s no need to wait for temperatures to rise before donning this colour. Grab a pink fuzzy knit or a pink oversized winter coat.

There’s countless ways to wear pink: Team it up with rose gold accessories, try pink on pink or choose a pink item with florals or pop art for a little fun. A head to toe pink look too girly for you? Try adding a pale pink bag or a pair of shoes to your outfit.

I went a little crazy with my look… three shades of pink with three different prints, and I love it! Don’t fear fashion, have fun with it. And remember…

…We don’t just wear pink on Wednesday’s anymore…

Destroy

April 4, 2014

I love these polka dot Adidas Originals trainers, half blue, half green. Because they are so special looking and fun I thought teaming them with a simple black and white outfit would work best.

This pinafore dress from Mr.Price is a great buy. I wear it as a dress and when I need a simple black skirt I take the straps off and voilà. Great for traveling purposes.

And what’s a pair of trainers without a snapback cap?

DIY Polka Dot Napkins

March 24, 2014

This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to spruce up your dinner table! You only need three things and you can do it in any colour. White and gold, black and pink, you name it.

What You Will Need:
– Plain napkins, you choice of colour.
– A small pot of fabric paint, your choice of colour.
– And lastly a small paintbrush. The eraser at the back of a pencil will work fine too.

Step 1:
Lay your napkins down on a flat surface with some newspaper underneath to avoid getting any marks on your furniture. 

**Tip: The creases on the napkin can be used as a guideline when adding the dots.

Step 2:
Using your paintbrush, or the eraser on the back of a pencil, begin adding the dots to the napkin. Feel free to make the dots whenever you please. Be it neatly in a row or spaced out unevenly, it’s up to you.

Step 3: 
Once you have covered your entire napkin in polka dots allow it to dry completely.

Step 4:
Once dry, iron the napkins upside down to make sure the paint sets into the fabric.

Step 5:
Now you can set your table or even gift it to a friend as a housewarming present.

Back to School

March 5, 2014

So today’s outfit post has a “Back to School” feel to it thanks to buttoned up collared shirts and alice bands.

I found this cute polka dot pinafore dress at Mr.Price the other day for a mere R90! (I do love a bargain)

Thank you Christopher Kane, Jil Sander, and Jason Wu for bringing the pinafore dress back.
