I’ve always believed that genius lies in simplicity and I’ve been striving towards it my whole life: in character, in manner and in style. I was fascinated by the simplicity and straightforwardness of African jewelry for the first time as a child, when my mother traveled to Cape Town and brought me several items from the local market.

What do I wear when I’m really, really, really into someone? I mean, you know that feeling when you know you’re not only out there to impress tonight, but the “I’m going to be your girl no matter what it takes” feeling. When I get that vibe, I want the “little girl” look, the cute, the innocent, the “never been touched before” look.

As a free soul and a fashion addict, I could never really reconcile with the demands of dress codes. Still, having people’s jobs oftentimes depend on the right attire, and people being sure that one cannot climb the ladder of success dressed in the costume of failure, makes the dress code a thing to be reckoned with.

I’ve always been into leaving my home in whatever I was wearing. Actually my disregard for public opinion reached such heights that I went to university exams and restaurants in pajamas. I’ve always been naturally free of the gravity of what people think, I made no effort to be like this. Being in favor of breaking the rules, I was really excited to see designers coming up with these gorgeous pajama sets designed for outwear. I was immediately attracted to the trend. Now, on how I think it’s best to wear it:

It might not be groundbreaking, but floral fabric for spring is still one of the most popular choices. It’s on the runways every year and it perfectly embraces the #summermood. Elegance, feminity and simplicity define the floral print spring dress (similar here and here). It’s light and sober at the same time, which makes it good for all occasions. Continue Reading

What is true of fashion generally and of sunglasses specifically is that whatever looks best on you is what you should wear this season. If something is trending right now but it doesn’t feel or look right on you, forget about it. However, there are certain styles of shades that the designers have opted for on the S 2018 runways. Now, you will notice that some of these trends are not meant to protect your eyes against sunlight and will only serve for aesthetic purposes. Still, some researchers say that sunlight is actually beneficial to the eyes and it’s only a matter of whether the sun rays disturb your comfort or not. So, with all of that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s trending right now in the shades department: Continue Reading

Coco Chanel once discovered that the sexiest in a woman is the man inside her (no, not that you naughty kids!). It’s the Yin and Yang within, the opposites that are complimentary and it is actually the masculine which emphasizes the feminine in a woman. So, Coco’s fashion was often times inspired from what men around her wore, and such is the case of the now legendary tweed jacket. Continue Reading

Velvet was once royal and it hasn’t forgotten about that. Even though the industrial revolution has made velvet affordable to the masses, it still remains a fabric that stands out from the crowd. Gordon Richardson, creative director of Topman, explains the fabric’s appeal: “Velvet is one of those perennial classics that are faintly nostalgic, reminiscent of simpler, noble times,” he says. “And it is particularly good at taking on colour due to its sumptuous depth of pile.” And indeed, some of the richest colors can be produced when dying velvet. Although velvet is a lavish fabric, you can easily wear an all-velvet outfit and still not look as if you’re exhibiting this year’s high-end upholstery fabrics. “There is an overriding sex appeal to velvet,” says Tony Glenville, creative director at London College of Fashion.

Ruins are the best ground for building a masterpiece. If that’s true, then the place I’m in has got a lot of fucking potential. And today, I’m not looking for beautiful places to take pics, today I’m simply walking the streets and stopping at a building that resembles all others. I always admired the color black. It has sobriety, personality, it’s got the necessary and the sufficient, in a word-everything. When in doubt, you have to know that all-black guarantees impeccable style. And let’s hope that Coco Chanel was right, and if dressed impeccably, they won’t remember the clothes of a woman or the ruins surrounding her, just the woman. Continue Reading
