Why I blog, and stripes

When you struggle to get up in the morning and can barely think straight - never mind pick out what you'll wear - you go for something that does not need ironing. Oh, and tights.

Top: YDE
Tights: Pure
Shoes: Franco Gemelli
Bag: China Town
Earrings: Sass Diva
Lipstick: Rimmel 340 - Lily Extase

 These came out a little bright, making me look pale - but that's ok. Right?  

I'd like to quote the very cute Piril Maria - because I'm still a little self-conscious about having a personal style blog and this is exactly how I feel:

"I am not the biggest fashion knower out there. Just a regular person, a girl, who enjoys wearing nice clothing. Who doesn't? Yes, I do look at the trends. Yes, I do like to dress up and look at the mirror and like what I see. Who doesn't? I simply like to blog and I feel like this is a nice place to share ideas."

I've had a passion for fashion, and I think an innate style, forever. Blogging has helped me to be more aware of my appearance, and also play with fashion. This (not so) little community also offers a platform to borrow ideas from others. No matter your wardrobe, you can look good. Clothing is definitely not the be-all and end-all of life, but the power it has cannot be denied. You tell the world about yourself every time you show up.

Thanks for reading,


  1. What a beautiful and vibrant top! Love the backdrop for your photos too!

    The blogging community is a great bunch! Even though we do fashion posts, there are a lot of wonderful people out there who really are sweet and nice!

  2. I totally agree! This is why I blog:) I mean, I am no fashion expert and I don't blog because I pretend I know fashion! I just enjoy dressing up since I can remember myself and this is what i show:)
    You look lovely! Your dress has such a cute print:) You look elegant:)

  3. It's so cool that you live in Johannesburg! I was in Tanzania recently (not to clump African countries together at all, but the two cultures are probably more similar than yours and mine (in the U.S.). I know exactly what you mean about blogging, I feel that it's quite inane and trivial sometimes but I still love it. Thanks for the lovely comment, I really appreciate it!

  6. Just saw this =) You are a cutie. And like I said, just being a girl makes it OK to dress up. Nobody can judge your way of wearing a piece of clothing. You look great! Keep doing it!
