Rock Chick

I don’t really like rock concerts, but I do like dressing a tad ‘rock’ once in a while. Am also thinking this outfit would be amaze with a pair of black suede ankle boots….am building up to that purchase because I need to justify buying something ill-designed for hot weather. But then again, fashion isn’t about being comfortable is it?

I love animal print. Leopard, zebra, tiger….you name it, but in small doses. I don’t buy into ‘animal-over-load’ as I call it (leopard top+belt+shoes = offensive leopard explosion)

Silk Shirt

I love the way this silk shirt falls and the slightly tighter cuffs. Cute gold studs on the neckline top it off perfectly. (can you see the rain in the background!!? Happy Monday!)

White shirt – Zara. Black mini – Zara. Red Heels – old. Studded bag – Jaspal new collection. Owl earrings – local market.

Crisp White

Nothing beats a crisp white collared shirt with proper tailoring that nips in slightly at the waist. We all know how difficult it is to find that illusive perfect fit, so this blog celebrates my discovery.

I like tucking it into trousers or wearing it loose over a mini skirt, like today. Add simple accessories and a killer heel! VaVoom!

Zipper Skirt

I adore this mini skirt from G2000, Promod. It’s the perfect length and the waist band doesn’t give you a muffin top. I LOVE the gold zip at the back.
Looks great with loose t shirts and any basic heel or peep toe. Add bold jacket for extra Voom!

Sparkly Sequin Over Load

I adore this hand sewn gold sequin Zara skirt so much. Buts it’s so delicate I am saving it for New Years!

The first one I bought fell apart in the bag (got home with a bag a sequins instead of a skirt!) so I triple checked the new one for any loose threads because you can only make one exchange on the same item.

It looks fantastic with a white collared or plain simple grey shirt. I added tangerine heels  for a KaPow Factor!!
