Vintage Inspired Dress

Longer length dresses are my most worn items during the summer months. I’m uncomfortable with anything that’s close fitting especially when the sun is out and the temperature rises. The feeling of anything clingy is unbearable – unless I’ll be wearing it for a short period of time. This vintage style inspired dress is feminine and stylish with a lovely neck detail, double slit…

Floral Print dresses

Purely by coincidence, I came across a tea room secretly tucked away in Seefeld, Zurich which serves tea – English style with homemade cupcakes, scones and cakes served with clotted cream and jam. On the menu are Dessert Tea and Afternoon Tea which comes with sandwiches. This shabby chic style little tea room has three tables so it’s best to…

Sunglasses: Must Have Accessory

Sunglasses are the must-have accessory for summer, especially the teeny tiny ones with the minuscule lenses which just about cover your eyes. They offer no sunlight UV protection whatsoever but we are not talking about been practical or protecting our eyes here…just about looking cool in one of the futuristic, Retro, Matrix styles. If you aren’t owning a pair of…

Spring Maxi Dresses

Spring is probably my most favourite of the seasons. As we leave the long cold winter and sometimes dreary days behind us, we gladly welcome spring with open arms… as it’s well overdue this year or so it seems. Off comes the thick layers and it’s time to store away chunky sweaters and coats and make room for lighter clothing.…

Blazers are all the rage right now and rightfully so. This is a staple that we all should have in our wardrobe. A blazer can really change the look of any outfit besides keeping the chill at bay during the transitional period.

Lavender – Spring Colour Trend

One of the top 10 colours for spring is lavender – a softer shade of purple. This hue ranges from a barely-there tint to a more vibrant one on the colour spectrum. It has been seen on the spring/summer 2018 runways and has been popping up quite a lot on social media. This colour suddenly seems fresh and is perfect for spring. It’s…

The sneaker is now a street style staple, and is effortlessly stylish – and along with it, we now have comfort. Yes, girls! Fortunately, we now have a vast array of…

My New Beauty Products For A Natural Look

Most times I wear natural or neutral looking makeup. I’ve added a few new items to my makeup bag. All these products that I have selected are so easy to apply… and I literally do my makeup in 10 minutes, unless I’m going for a neutral look which takes me a whole lot longer. Sisley Foundation I’ve tried many different…

Vertical & Horizontal Stripes

My outfit today is a bold vertical striped jacket with a horizontal striped jumper, paired with simple black trousers. I intended to wear the full suit (you can find the trousers here) but opted for a more low-key look instead. I love how the jacket falls loosely and best of all… it doesn’t crease which makes it perfect for travelling or…

Stripes & Maxi Skirt From My Closet

Today’s outfit is from my closet. It was one of those winter days when the sun was trying to come through and so I expected a warmer day. It was actually very cold because of the slight wind. Nevertheless, I ventured out in an outfit – not really appropriate for the temperature and pretended it was warmer – while hoping…

One Shoulder Top & Flared Pants

My all black look today is dramatic and sophisticated while been edgy at the same time. The one shoulder top is simple and fitted which balances the proportion of the flared pants. I love the fit of the neckline as it stops just at the right place and doesn’t cause overspills of any kind. Lately, I have been buying more high-waisted pants…

I always plan to get things done well ahead of time but unfortunately, it just doesn’t happen.

Trending – Faux Fur

Animal-rights activists are partly responsible for many people turning away from wearing real fur. Because of public awareness campaigners, more people are hesitant to wear real fur either, because of ethical reasons (killing animals for their fur) or fear of being called out. Some designers ( Vivienne Westwood, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger) renounced using real fur in their collections…

Bras – The Foundation For A Smooth Silhouette

Wearing the right type of bra is the foundation to achieve that perfect streamlined look. Buy the right size bra and don’t squeeze into a smaller cup size which only causes over-spill. We don’t want that! If you don’t know your correct size, then it’s time to get measured.
