Accessories Obsession: Bangles and Bracelets GALORE!!

Okay. I am not so much a huge fan of chunky and bold accessories. I like to keep my accessories simple and rather let my clothes and shoes make a statement. But having been browsing through Pinterest (again), I have got to say: the whole chunky and stacked arm candy trend has got me in a tizz!!

I am so in love with the colour combinations, the designs…they are just too darn cute!! I have selected my top favourites (I have so many more though. If you want to see them all, visit my Pinterest Accessories Board).

Here are a few of my faves. Hope you love them as much as I do. I can’t wait to rock this trend when spring and summer hit our shores beginning the end of this month!! Until next post…take care! 🙂

Shorts, shorts, shorts. It's still winter here in the Southern Hemisphere...but spring/summer is just around the corner. So squatting and lunging to get ready to don a couple of these!

How High Can You Go?

High Heels Complete Guide And Tips:

Of course high heels are sublime, but a mere glance at them through the shop windows, with their iridescent platforms and their Eiffel tower design, is enough to cause vertigo. And aren’t heels against nature? Yes chorus doctors. And those who rush about all day know it: ideal height is 4 cm. At 9 cm, one runs the real risks of collapse of the arch of the foot and lumbar aches. In hindsight, a bit of a heel muscles the leg; indeed it is advisable if you are prone to Achilles heel tendinitis.

High Heels

Climbing On Board: Before you take the leap, follow these instructions-

  • Alternate the heights: 8 cm, yes, but not everyday.
  • Choose suede: Less rigid than gloss, as well as rounded tips, are far more comfortable.
  • Dump the pair that hurt you the moment you tried them on in a boutique. Those…

Fashion Buys: Forever New and Guess

Hey there!

A public holiday here in South Africa – June 16 is National Youth Day and because the day fell on a Sunday, the following Monday becomes a public holiday.

Youth Day is a day that commemorates the youth of 16 June 1976 who planned to stage a peaceful protest against the Apartheid government’s decision to make Afrikaans the medium of education at all schools. The protest did not end peacefully. Having used tear gas to disperse the student crowd, the police resorted to using live ammunition, killing many and wounding hundreds more.

I hope all South Africans enjoyed their holiday (despite the fact that Bafana Bafana lost) and that they are enjoying their Monday off.

Alright, back to the post. This is my first fashion post on the blog. I just thought I share with you all my latest buys…which I love, love, love.

My first is a beautiful Forever New mini dress that I bought at Edgars Fourways Mall (I had walked Sandton City floor to floor looking for a dress…phew!). I needed to get a dress for a 21st Birthday celebration To whichI had been invited. The dress cost me a whopping R1000. Yes! A thousand (that would be about US$110 or £70). The price is steep, I know, but the dress is exquisite.

I wanted post a pic of the dress on the blog but my iPad is giving me such issues. As soon as I can get it uploaded, I will do so.

The next buys were a few Guess products bought from the Edgars Northgate Shopping Centre store. Just got to love Guess dontcha. They have such classy bags. So hip and of course so me.

And a pair of jeans with the word “Guess” studded on the back. LOVE.

I think I am slowly becoming a Guess girl. And there’s nothing wrong with that, right? 🙂

Until the next post, keep well. And how irritating is that? The other pics are able to upload but not the Forever New dress. Arrghh! Technology.
