Heeled sandals are back!

Spring is back, which means one thing – we can wear heeled sandals again.

There’s a hot variety just about everywhere. Cut out sandals look great, fringe is edgy – detail is everything.

If you’re like us, colourful toe nails are a must. File them, buff them and paint away. Switch up your colour and have fun! Our go-go colours are nude, red, pink.

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.

How to wear black this Autumn

An all black ensemble is one way to tackle the cold. Not just for its heat absorption properties. It’s never out of style, it’s chic and easy to wear. One thing I really enjoy is playing around with textures, hence my leather leggings.

I wore them with a slouchy black shirt which was one of my key items during my pregnancy two years ago. My faux fur giilet is one of Autumn’s favourite colors, so I love the twist. My favorite thing about this look is perhaps the hat. I definitely think it’s time to bring back the hats.

Get your pleats on!

I’m officially obsessed with pleats! I got my Navy pleated skirt from Foschini this year and vowed to get another one. Needless to say, when I saw this pink one I knew I HAD to have it.

Pleated skirts are cool, flirty and feminine, as a skirt should be. The best part? The pleats are permanently pressed so you don’t have to deal with the iron every time you wear them!

This pink pleated midi a classic for any kind of wardrobe style. Try with a sweater, crop top or flats to keep the look casual, or go corporate chic like I did in a lacy black bodysuit, bright accessories and a pair of black patent leather heels.

Suiting up in a shirt dress

The occasion was the second Grazia Night at the Oscars event. I skipped the evening dress and rocked something a little less conventional on the red carpet.

A white shirt dress and black sleeveless blazer are one of fashion’s hottest couples right now. I can bet they’ll be getting plenty of attention this Autumn.

I love a classy look, so I wore my shirt dress and blazer with a bow-tie, a wide-brim hat and faux-leather gloves, keeping it clean and monochromatic. Red heels broke away from the black and white look and introduced a fierce pop of colour; which I’m about.

So, did I do well?

Inside The Closet: Mili

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 3.01.07 PM

Mili’s bubbly persona matches her ever-evolving fashion sense, which she constantly uses a way of self-expression. A girl whose bright makeup bag is her best friend. You won’t catch her looking drab; she’d rather arrive fashionably late, which in itself is no crime really.

What’s your signature style?

It’s comfy, edgy and sometimes funky. I follow trends but I also mix and match my own clothes and come up with outfits that are ‘me’, feminine and show off my best assets.

Who’s your style icon?

My late aunt, who was forever stylish, a ‘10’ as Phathu and I would say. She’d rock anything from a flowy maxi dress to skinny jeans with a crisp white shirt. Her taste was timeless – most of my style is what she wore. She silently taught me that a woman could wear anything and just be awesome.

Fave item of clothes:

Generally, I’d pick a dress, but I’m crazy about a stunning black lace detail jumpsuit, which I bought last year. It’s sexy, trendy and exquisitely feminine.

What trend have you been meaning to try?

I’ve been meaning to try the sports-luxe trend with sneakers. The problem is I can’t function in flats; I’d need a great pair of sneakers to persuade me.

Which beauty products can’t you live without? 

It’s Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse for keeping me flawless. I’m also a fan of Rimmel mascara, which pumps up my lashes. My Yardley matte red lipstick offers long-lasting wear – love it!

Slip on those skater shoes

I’m having a tiny bit of an obsession with my new black skater shoes or slip-ons, which is pretty unusual for a heels advocate like me. These are from Foschini and I love that they’re super comfortable and can be … Continue reading

Elegance at the launch of Fashion Friends

Saturday evening we dazzled at the Foschini Fashion Friends at the Sandton store. We both went for elegant dresses.

Phathu wore a Craig Jacobs aqua ‘Leah’ dress with a lime strap. She rocked white jewellery and heels for an unpredictable finish. An African map ring and studs matching the dress were a great finishing touch you’d notice at close range.

Mili went in her black maxi dress with a flirty slit. She paired it with a gold neckpiece, studs, gold plated belt and nude heels. She also added a red clutch for that pop of colour.

The evening was a ball – we had a moment on the mic introducing ourselves to the guests and we shopped up a mini storm. Each girl chose a pair of jeans that could rip, or not. Phathu went with white jeans and didn’t rip them. Mili went with navy and chose to rip them. A week later you bet we’ve both worn our jeans – hahaha!

It was an exciting night of fashion, not forgetting the awesome goodie bag filled with stylish tid-bits.

 

All white for high tea

White trended last week at the Fashion Friends high tea organised by Foschini to introduce the ambassadors to each other.

Phathu went all Kate Middleton on us rocking a white midi bodycon which accentuated her curves. She paired it with a gold plated belt and white heels. A classy white clutch bag and a navy fascinator sealed the oh-so-queenly look.

Mili wore a white mesh layered skater dress with a white belt and nude heels. She accessorised with a floral head wrap that matched her gold statemet necklace.

PS:  If you try only one trend this season, it should be the allwhite look. What do you think of our looks?
