White on White

An all white outfit can be intimidating. However you’ll be pretty surprised at how well an all white outfit holds up throughout the day.

With Summer right on our doorstep I’ve been wearing more and more white each day. There’s something so chic about an all white affair. “Yes, I’m a lady of luxury that catches Uber Black between my lunch meetings and shopping spree’s on Madison Avenue and no, I never mess red wine on my outfit.” 

This soft, feminine top is a perfect statement piece. Its cutaway detailing and soft drape pairs perfectly slim fit or waterfall trousers. A chic outfit that can take you from day to night with as little effort as simply applying a lip.

Pearls

July 14, 2014

Pearls, this timeless jewellery classic makes a major fashion comeback thanks to the master, Karl Lagerfeld, during the Chanel Pre-Spring/Summer 2014 Cruise Collection. 

Not only are pearls timeless but they feminine and refined. They add charm to an outfit without even trying.

“Did you know that Cleopatra dissolved a pearl in wine and drank it to prove her love to Marc Antony and ever since, the precious gem has adorned famously chic women throughout time.”

Diamonds aint a girls best friend no more 😉

Office Elegance

June 19, 2014

Dressing your way to success is no lie. `

I remember when I first started modelling I was told by one of my European agencies that I would have to go out and purchase myself a $2000 dollar handbag if I was to be taken seriously within the industry, clients would automatically sit up and take notice with a Prada or Louis Vuitton on my arm.

In a business world that is predominately male orientated dressing the part has never been more important. Not only does it A.) Make people take you more seriously but B.) It makes you take yourself more seriously.

Dressing the part is not about how you end up ‘looking” but how it makes you “feel”. Sometimes it can be the smallest thing, say a watch or a set of matching underwear that makes you feel fantastic and confident. If we dress confidently we automatically feel confident.

Here’s some tips for dressing for the office:

  • Mix expensive pieces with bargain pieces. Don’t stress about wearing a top to toe designer look.
  • When you try something on picture yourself wearing it at work. Does it make you feel confident?
  • If in doubt? Wear black! My fav colour. No matter how cheap the item is, it always looks expensive. It’s classic and elegant. Plus if you wear it three days a week no one would really notice.
  • Google or flip through magazines to find some inspo before heading to the shops. This way you have a strong, clear idea of what you want.
  • Update your wardrobe every season by buying two or three extra pieces. Then mix it up with your old pieces to save money.

Remember “fashion is what you buy… style is how you wear it”

My Top 8 Knitwear Trends

May 21, 2014

Knitwear has made a move this season from “winter wardrobe essential” to one of the seasons hottest trends, a trend where comfort meets glam.

With so many new knitwear designs this season there’s a knit to suit your every occasion and mood.

When it comes to knitwear there’s no real rules or limits, as long as your feel creative and comfortable you in the right space.

Below I’ve put together a list of my top eight knitwear trends this season, from the funky fuzzy knit to the good old classic cable knit.

Sweaters.0011.) The Chunky Knit
Best worn with a pencil skirt, these knits are a huge statement piece this Winter.
Witchery  R849.00

2.) The Statement Knit:
Seen on most of the runways this season, the statement knit is definitely a way to grab attention. Think bold colours like Kenzo, cute cartoons like Givenchy and controversial phrases like Alexander Wang.
Kenzo from Polyvore R4265.00

3.) The Embellished Knit:
A look that will last you the Winter and right into Spring, add a little sparkle during the freezing cold Winter with a dazzling embellished knit.
Topshop R800.00

4.) The Fuzzy Knit:
One of my favourite knits this seasons, it’s ridiculously warm and comfortable. (I own four!) This knit teams up well with any item. I love a contrast in textures though, try leather or denim.
Mr Price R149.99

5.) The Masculine Knit:
Borrowing knits from your boyfriends wardrobe is one of the quickest ways to achieve the masculine look. Stella McCartney introduced a very back-to-school feel with her boyish looking knits on the runway this season.
Cotton On R499

6.) The Cropped Knit:
This cute knit looks perfect in pastel colours. Wear your crop knit with a skater skirts or high waisted jeans to accentuate your waistline.
Zara R180.00

7.) The Cable Knit:
From traditional fisherman-style jumpers in Aran knits, to oversized knitted dresses, the cable knit is a classic that has made it’s way back into our wardrobes and our hearts.
Trenery R999.00

8.) The Print Knit:
The printed knit looks great when wore with a well fitted pair of jeans or if you feeling bold try wearing a complete printed look.
Country Road R849.00
