Happy Valentine's Day

So today i've decided to celebrate by wearing a full sequins short sleeve top...i know, it might seem a bit dressy for day time but today being Valentine's Day and all, i think Iits the perfect garment for the occasion. 

Iv stacked it up with my KatalistKollection nude choker and pink clear beads choker, which I'm completely obsessed with, I literally will not leave the house without them.

Just to be even more OTT, I've added a pearl collar necklace and a long pendent gold necklace.

I decided on this vintage bad because it has a bit of a romantic story, which i think is perfect for the theme of the day.  When i purchased it a couple of years ago, it came with congratulations letters from a florist in Joburg CBD dating back to 16 December cool is that!)

I've finished off my look with basic black leggings, a long t-shirt and my wooden thick heel clogs.

Hope you have an awesome day this Valentine's, try and do something special for yourself or for someone else, it is after all a day set out to encourage the celebration of Love in all its shapes and sizes...Have some fun with it.

Snap shots of my holiday this past December...yes, I know,it is quite a throwback!

I heart Durban.
Drove all the way there with only one pit stop:D and it was my first long distance drive over three hour...not bad at all.
Quick beach stop in Umthanga.

Had a little to much fun at the Durban History Museum in the CBD

 Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Found this beautiful tribute to Tata on Florida Road:D

Fashion Show Article

Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013/14                                   



This collection completely excites me, it is the epitome of discreet sexyness, modest class and youthful maturity, all those wonderful things that make a runway show an inspiring positive display of absolute creativity.  To be able to communicate all these things that combined, signify the aspirations of a true Lady.
Ok so I might be a little bias when it comes to all things Valentino, i'v been in love with the brand since our first introduction at the campus library while i was hassling my way through my Theory of Fashion assignment during my first year at Tech.  The brand has consistently deposited simple elegantly designed garments made of the highest quality craftsmanship since its inception, it is pure magic.
The Labels current designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are described in the 25th issue of OnAther Magazine as discreet and dignified, every bit as their collaborative designs.
"Beauty is not necessarily about clothes in which you show too much of yourself,"Chiuri continues in the article, "We wanted to portray women as paintings, to express emotion and give them a new dignity."
The founder of the Design house Valentino Garavani and his longtime business partner Gaincarlo Giammetti continue to sit in the front row at their successors' shows and expressed that they are extremely happy and relieved with the results of the current teams work.  Giammetti said their work was based on modesty, without the usual commotion such as presumption, scandals and stardom behaviour...a lesson to the entire fashion world."Indeed.

Throwback: Stonewashed Denim and lipstick

So I'm obsessed with these plastic bow wedges, they work with almost anything and they are super comfortable not to mention super cute, I have them in three different colours.

The stonewashed denim was a lucky coincidence, i was actually having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction that morning, landed on this look just before deciding not to leave the house! 

I'm also obsessed with everything Mac and i had run out of some of my life savers, as things would turn out we ended up having to drive to three different branches to finally get the perfect shade so we decided to make the best of it, have a lil fun.

I also picked up a some new lip colour for flavour.

But the shade the lady is wearing in the poster though...

Weapons of mass distraction!)
