Trend Alert: Unique Jumpsuits!

From plain to printed, to lace and floral we’ve fallen in love with unique jumpsuits.

One of our favourites has to be the floral print jumpsuit from Foschini’s ‘Cuba meets Africa’ range. Phathu paired her floral print playsuit with high heeled sandals and a summer hat.

Probably the most fab thing about this jumpsuit is that you can easily dress it up or down or transition from day to night.

Add metallic flats and bangles for a chic effect or heels on a night out and you have a sexy, feminine look.




Brogues, Brogues, Brogues

Practical, stylish without effort, and following in the footsteps of the fashion pack are some of the words I use to describe my brogues.

I’ve always been a lover of heels but a recent injury had me reassessing my relationship with heels and giving brogues a second look.

Today I stepped out in a lovely brown leather pair of Foschini brogues which I wore with a black A-line dress and a fur gilet pull over for that glam effect.

Do you own a pair of brogues, tag us and show us how you wear your pair of brogues.

Yellow – the colour of summer

We can officially say it’s summer time!  Well, in fashion it is. So, ditch your neutrals and dark tones and inject your wardrobe with a pop of colour – from punchy citrus to our favourite colour – a burst of canary yellow.

The bolder and brighter it is – the better. We love how fashionista Bontle Mogoye brought sunshine in her outfit.  She paired her bright yellow sleeveless blazer with distressed denims, a white tee and a pair of yellow peep toes.

Not one to shy away from colour she chose a bright pink lip to complement her look.

So who else is having a yellow summer?

Distressed and Chic

You can wear distressed denim and still look polished. Be it skinny, boyfriend or cropped, ripped jeans are a hot denim trend.

Last night we took distressed denim to a new level at the launch of the new River Island store at Sandton City. And yes, it was a coincidence!

Phathu redefined chic in light washed ripped boyfriend jean, an oversized black top, chunky necklace, a black coat and an oversized bag to complete the look.

Mili sizzled in dark blue ripped skinny jeanss, a black and white body suit, black boyfriend blazer and and a pair of pale pink heels.

Suited up

Sometimes we borrow from the boys and suit up – tastefully, of course. When suiting up, it’s important to choose a suit that’s perfectly tailored so you look amazing and just, well, stylish.

Phathu took monochrome to another level when she donned this white suit with a sheer black blouse and nude heels. As usual, her accessories were kept to a minimum, opting for a white leather skinny belt and drop earrings. So trendy!


Not one to shy away from colour, Mili worked her burnt orange double-breasted suit with a black and white top, pale pink heels and a red clutch.


Our tip: Mix and match stylish pieces for the best pairing.

We love bold lipsticks

When it comes to make-up, nothing rivals the power of a bold lip. Gorgeous lips elevate your outfit, and make a statement. Phathu and I both love bold lipsticks.

As you can see my go-to colour is a fierce red lippie from Yardley ​while hers is a deep purple from Revlon  Ladies, what’s your go-to lippie?

We love classic black pants

A wardrobe essential for every season is a pair of classic black pants. It’s the building block to almost any look, PLUS it does wonders for your figure.

Dress it up, down or go corporate chic, like Mili did. She wore hers with a pair of cobalt suede heels, black shirt and grey knit jersey.

She kept her accessories to a minimum, wearing only a chunky beaded neckpiece to let the pants be the centre of attention.

Wrap coats are one of our favourite items this winter. This pale pink one with oversized collars and a belt is great to wear with just about anything. Phathu rocked it with the classic jean and boot winter look and … Continue reading


All things knitwear!

Chilly days are here, stay warm and look stylish in knitwear this winter. Mili wore her oversized black and white knit jersey with black thick stockings, block heels, a white shirt, as well as a leather mini. The accessories were kept to a minimum: gold studs and a black pendant. Her hair was tied in a high bun, which made this look quite chic.

Tip: Wear this season’s knits with skinny jeans, leggings, jeggings or even jumpers for the ultimate warm and comfy look.
