This Spring’s Perfect Shoe – The Block Heel

A girl’s best friend is apparently diamonds and I completely agree. However, I think a pair of comfortable and stylish block heels come to a close second.

When you find the perfect pair of heels that go well with every outfit it makes life and dressing up so much more fun and easier! Especially a pair of nude heels that immediately help to elongate your legs – making them look leaner and thinner.

Every person needs a pair of chic and stylish pair of block heels for the upcoming spring/summer season. I’m currently obsessed with my new addition of block heels from RUBI from their latest ‘The Nude Normal’ range. Here are some of my favourite style tips when it comes to styling a pair of flattering nude heels.

The New Streetwear Chic

Early 2000s was the era of tracksuits with celeb stars like Paris Hilton and Kimora Lee Simmons seen rocking the fashion trend. The style has officially made a comeback as athleisure-wear with fashionistas wearing sweatpants and tracksuits at many occasions making it the new streetwear chic. Personally if I could, I would totally be wearing a pair joggers or tracksuit pants everyday! They are the ultimate answer to comfortability.

My current favourite tracksuit that I’ll probably be seen in this entire winter season is from Mr. Price. I was particularly drawn to this tracksuit by its colour and wide arm design on the tracksuit top. The tracksuit is from the Project collection that was recently launched by Mr. Price and it features a collection of fun, sporty and casual items.

Keeping It Slick In A Slip Dress

While it is still Summer in the beautiful city that is Cape Town, I plan to make the most of it and soak up the delicious sunshine. And what better way to strut the streets of Cape Town, but in a chic slip dress. The uniquely designed slip dress from Phoebe&Knox has definitely become one my favourite dresses at the moment. The dress is such a great fit, with material that is so comforting to the body.

When it does get too hot this is when we thank the heavens for the modern day style of slip dresses. Just to clarify for those who may not be 100% sure, slip dresses were originally worn as an under clothing garment to prevent the showing of intimate garments. However, now days most skirts and dresses come with lining underneath that it is not necessary for a person to wear a silky slip dress underneath their clothes. Instead it has now become norm for us to rock the dresses as a fashion expression.

Summer Midi Dress

We all love maxi dresses for the warm, summer days they are super comfortable and girly. However, midi dresses are just as great for the summer breeze and can work with almost anything in one’s closet. Midi dresses can be styled in numerous ways to create a super stylish and effortless look or a casual and timeless look. As a summer trend midi dresses are rather under-appreciated, but are definitely your BFF wardrobe item this summer.

Current Lip Colours For The Summer

As Summer begins to approach in South Africa it means bright and bold lips will be making a seasonal comeback. It is the season that allows one to rock the sassiest lip colours and make a statement. After visiting The Body Shop I came across the most show-stopping and mesmerising matte lip colours that I can’t wait to rock during the Summer.

I’ve always been a fan of The Body Shop and their makeup, because of the cruelty free policy and how it treats my skin so well. The skincare store has recently launched its first matte lip liquid colours. The range includes 12 bright shades with each shade having a rich creamy colour.

Summer Style: Off-The-Shoulder

Summer has always been my favourite season followed closely by Spring. I just love how everything starts looking more alive as the days get warmer during this time of year from the makeup to the clothes. Trends are so much more fun to follow in Summer with everyone adding their own sense of unique style to a particular fashion trend i.e. the off-the-shoulder.

One of the biggest Spring/Summer trends that has undoubtedly made a mark in the fashion space is the off-the-shoulder style. This trend comes in some many styles either as a shirt, crop top, dress or jumpsuit you pick your choice of style. It has quickly become a definite fashion favourite for most fashionistas and stylists. I have even purchased quite a few cute and sexy off-the-shoulder items that I absolutely can’t wait to rock this coming Summer.

Strobing (Highlighting) 101 Tips

I am no makeup artist, but I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m the worst when it comes to makeup. I still know how to beat my face when necessary and with the practice  I must my makeup game is slowly improving. However,  I must admit I’m still very faulty and I have never really been able to the master the whole contouring technique. Alas, makeup artists and vloggers have come to our rescue and showed us that you don’t have to slay by knowing how to contour. Instead strobing (highlighting) is the new and best way to get those facial features popping. I must admit strobing is way better than contouring for me, because it is a more natural and stunning way of highlighting a person’s gorgeous facial features.

“So, what is strobing? Strobing is actually not a new technique; it’s been around in the makeup game for many years—you might know it as highlighting. Strobing is basically highlighting to the extreme and letting the highlight define your facial features without the use of bronzer or contour. The main goal for strobing is to concentrate a highlight on the highest points of your face, where light would naturally hit, to create a “glow from within” dewy, radiant complexion.” – Elaine Barnett (The EVERYGIRL)

Victoria Beckham’s Chic & Casual S/S ’17 Collection

New York Fashion Week has undoubtedly proven itself so far, as to why it is one of the anticipated fashion weeks on the fashion calendar. So much has happened in just two days from the Prabal Gurung modern contemporary collection to the laid-back, futuristic Alexander Wang and Adidas collaboration. The next few days are sure guaranteed to be fashion revolutionary as we impatiently wait to see what the other household fashion names have created for the human canvas.

However, my heart has been won by no other than Miss Posh Spice herself, Victoria Beckham. For her ready-to-wear Spring 2017 collection that was showcased on Sunday. She made us all reminisce and fall in love with all things velvet, satin and chiffon. Her collection was a perfect fit of high-fashion meets casual-wear. The loose, over-sized and bagginess of her collection was done in such a chic and admirable manner. Making it rather impossible to not to fall in love with the softness and sophistication of the collection.

Make A Statement In A Skirt

I’m not the type of girl who is into clothes that are heavily textured, printed or patterned. Instead I prefer keeping my sense of style very solid and minimal. However, once in a while you have got to buy that show-stopping item for your closet. It might be a risky buy at first, but it will surely turn heads when you walk by and that’s exactly how I feel about my ‘Alphabet’ statement skirt by South African designer Anisa Mpungwe for Mr Price.
