Red coat, Marilyn and the perfect everyday denim 

Hi chicsters and happy Tuesday! So you know how black is a wardrobe staple, I feel like red is my new black. I have been obsessed with red leather skirts, red flowy polka dot dresses and jumpers. So imagine my excitement whenever I have to wear this coat which adds a perfect pop of colour…

Blush blazer and flared denim

Hi chicsters and happy Tuesday! On a recent birthday gift shopping spree (sponsored by my older sister as our birthday tradition), I went to Zara in search of a blazer. While I absolutely love collecting coats, I have found their Spring/Summer equivalent (blazers) quite a challenge especially regarding shapes, colours and general feel. So I…

Fall Favourites

Hi chicsters! Happy Thursday and almost weekend o’clock. I’m not sure if it’s fortunately or unfortunately but Cape Town has been experiencing a week long deep Summer with temperatures above 31 degrees. While the Autumn lover in me was not pleased especially when I had just gotten to packing away all my Summer clothes especially…

My go-to pieces

Ever since I decided to take a more vested interest in my style and fashion as a whole, I have come to learn that one does not need a huge closet to be stylish. As I feel that I now know what my style is, I have found 4 items (camel coat, striped t-shirt, comfortable…

Up your sweater game

It’s hump day everyone! For those of you who usually go through the midweek slump, you are half way to Friday and the weekend. Given the fact that we Cape Townians are pretty much in Autumn (not sure about Joburg), sweaters are now part of our basic look for the next 7 months. Since following…

Autumn Brights

Happy Tuesday from a raining and cozy Cape Town. Rainy or overcast grey days often evoke an air of darkness and heaviness in the city. While many see this as a fashion opportunity to whip out black, grey or navy outfits, I quite enjoy playing with colour. To my surprise, brighter oranges than burnt orange…

OTK and Camel Coats

Autumn is finally upon us and what better way to gear up for those cool temperatures with Over The Knee (OTK) boots and a camel coat. These 2 items have become staples in my wardrobe and after a 3 year search I found both by chance.  Finding the perfect Camel coat is such a hassle. After…

Transitioning your slip on dress for Autumn

The last days of Summer are such a bittersweet moment for me. Not only will I miss the warmth of the sun against my skin but we quickly acquainted with the ice cold wind and stuck between hot-cold weather. So for the hot half days I tend to enjoy the heat in my Summer clothes…

Trench Season

Happy Friyay chicsters. So sorry for going MIA. I had big academic submissions which required all my time and maximum attention. I’m partially out of the cave and made it back in time for our first day of Autumn/Fall. I’ve literally been counting down the days after the hottest (personally) Summer in Cape Town. So…

NYFW: Looks for Autumn

Happy Friday chicsters! I cannot believe that February is almost over. I feel like it just started! I hope that you all had a great week (Valentine’s Day included) and looking forward to the weekend. I am mentally exhausted, data analysis and writing up has been merrily killing me. In between all the academic work,…

The Fall Kit

Happy Sunday chicsters! Today the mother city (Cape Town) blessed us with Fall and Wintery weather (my favourite seasons) after a scorching 2 day heatwave. Having lived in Cape Town for 7 years now, I have learned that February is the actual Summer season. December and January are hot but it is quite windy so…

DIY: Fringe Denim

Happy Saturday chicsters! I hope that you are all enjoying the last days of Summer. As you all know, I am no longer working and have returned to studying as a PhD student. So that means, no more shopping sprees and that I have to be creative with my wardrobe. So having learned the harsh…
