Work that Mini

Dress: Krush Culture; Coat: Identity; Shoes & Stockings: Woolworths;
Bag: Sowearto; Necklace: Aldo

So leaving home today, I thought this dress was much more conservative than it actually is. There is truth in pictures - this hemline is way too short for my own work-appropriate boundary! Nonetheless, I really like this look. I love the funky shoulder detail of this dress; it's warm too.

p.s. I could do this dress for work again, but it would need much thicker stockings. Alternatively, a longer coat will also do the trick.

Thank you to Lerato for these pictures.

Hope you're having a good week?!

On the Job

Work's been busy lately. We've just returned from Mpumalanga, where we visited orphanages and did a couple of stories. In between, we took a drive through Kruger National Park. Here're some pictures.

When travelling to the villages, I dress down and comfortable.

This lil' lady was posing away when she saw the camera so I couldn't help but join in.

A beautiful African sunrise.

Hope you're having a great week so far!

Miss Boss Couture

A few weeks ago I went to the Miss Boss Couture Winter 2012 Fashion Show. The range is young, and edgy. Here are a few pictures from their catalogue. Find Miss Boss Couture on facebook, here.


Have a lovely weekend!

Boots: Foschini; Bag: Sowearto; Necklace: Sass Diva

Just a quick casual look. I'm glad that it's the weekend, I look forward to warm snuggles and good food. After the weekend, I travel to Mpumalanga for work - so I'll be away from the blog for a few days again.

Stole Her Look

Skirt: Meltz; Top: Piccadilly; Cardigan: Identity; Shoes: Foschini;
Belt: Pure Fashion Show; Bag: The Hub; Necklace: Sass Diva; Earrings: Gifted

I loved this combination on Sydney when I first saw it, and immediately knew I'd try it myself! I'm looking at a lot of inspiration pictures, as the days get colder - Pinterest you beauty! Follow my boards here.

Thank you to Lerato who took these pictures.

Thank you for coming by. Have a lovely day!

Pants: Vintage from Old Street; Top: Mr Price; Faux Fur Vest: Miss Boss Couture;
Shoes: Foschini; Necklace: Sass Diva; Pearl Earrings: Gifted

I really love this faux fur vest from Miss Boss - I've worn it a few times already and just can't get enough! It's been the perfect add on; it adds some drama and offers the ideal amount of warmth! Great investment piece.

Thanks to Lerato for these pictures.

Hope you're having a lovely day!

Thankful Tuesday

Pants: Swapped; Top: Pure; Pullover: Meltz; Blazer: Mr Price; Shoes: China Town;
Faux Fur Headband: Old Street; Collar: Sass Diva

(Things I'm thankful for.)
A heater, everywhere these days.
An extra blanket on the bed. 
A TV in the bedroom, despite my previous objection - my bed makes a better sofa than a cold leather couch.
A wors roll stand (think hot dog, just better), and R12 to get one.
Woolworths' butternut soup. Hmmm.
Sour cream and chives dip. 
Technology. Saw a picture of my niece or nephew on the way. :)
This faux fur headband from Old Street. Warm and cosy.
Layering. It. is. the. answer.
A conference with Phil Cooke last week - dynamic speaker!
The opportunity to guest post over at The You Are Project. See the post here.

Thank you to Lerato for these pictures.

Hope you're having a lovely week.

Dear Amber Jones

... I love your work.

The latest Amber Jones range hits Mr Price stores this week. I was thrilled to find the wedges on Friday already though. Love! 

Have an awesome week.
