Daniel Wellington – Minimalistic Rose Gold Wonder

Daniel Wellington – Minimalistic Rose Gold Wonder

Fashion Accessories
When we think of a watch, the word customization doesn’t often come to mind! Most of us are content with ‘investment’ pieces that cost hefty sums of money and bring the distinction of a big brand to our persona. Even though I love a 201 carat Chopard as much as the next woman :), I also am a huge fan of simplicity and minimalism. And both sentiments are fabulously crafted into the form and style of a Daniel Wellington. The $200 Million Sleeper Hit: Daniel Wellington has always maintained a low profile. But the company is worth $200 million which says a lot about its buyer base. DW fans are evangelists for life. They believe Daniel Wellington pieces go with just…

Haute Edit – Curated Handcrafted Collectables

Haute Edit – Curated Handcrafted Collectables

Haute Lifestyle
Pieces That Fascinate: Haute Edit has been a labour of love. I have personally studied exciting trends in the global market and liaised with dozens of artists to shortlist the few who will be featured. I procure a limited number of items each month, and they do not spend too much time ‘on the shelf’. The character and charm they are capable of adding to any décor can’t be matched by the slick factory made pieces in the open market. And this ups the ante around their acquisition! I am working on expanding the volume and selection, though. And hopefully, my readers will see less of the ‘sold out’ label in the near future. Curated Ceramics, Gilded Accessories & More:…

Plush Winter Coat Trend – Oversized Camel

Plush Winter Coat Trend – Oversized Camel

Fashion, Fashion Trends
Winter is finally upon us, and the runways are paying special attention to outerwear. This plush Winter Coat Trend will help you add a dash of snuggle and chic to a dull winter wardrobe. Camel is the New Black Isn’t this hue absolutely delish? It is so rich and reminiscent of the bold palette that nature embraces during the mellow autumns! Camel just can’t go wrong. It flatters every complexion and skin tone. And you are likely to see camel creations in oversized, over the shoulder, trench and A-line coats. There is a whole spectrum of silhouettes to choose from! I recently paired my oversized camel coat with my Christian Louboutin spiked Pigalle pumps – a killer combination! The Oversized Trend…

Molecule 02 by Escentric Molecules

Molecule 02 by Escentric Molecules

Beauty, Cult Beauty
Molecule 02 by Escentric Molecules had some tough competition. Its predecessor – the fresh, floral olfactory triumph Molecule 01, left me mesmerised with its ability to work with my unique chemical signature and create a perfume that’s completely me. And I had a ton of expectations from Eccentric Molecules Molecule 02. I am happy to say that this Escentric offering has trumped anything and everything I had in mind. And apparently I am not the only one, most self-proclaimed fragrance connoisseurs concur. The Luxe Flacon: Exploring new fragrances is a luxurious experience I cherish. I handle the flacon with pleasant anticipation. I take in a whiff of the scent to heighten my delight and only then do I enjoy the…

Fashion Obsession – Bardot Tops

Fashion Obsession – Bardot Tops

Fashion
Be fearlessly authentic. The privilege of a lifetime is being who you truly are ❤️ I have been obsessing over the ultra flattering, off the shoulder Bardot tops all Summer, so I decided to commission this bespoke piece. I love the two tone longer length top especially when paired with this nude lace skirt, both custom pieces by Hugo Swanepoel of AMOS. Bardots, commonly known as off-the-shoulder tops, are famously named after Brigitte Bardot. Flattering, showing off shoulders and collarbones – it’s a wardrobe essential. Bardots are so versatile and can be easily dressed up or down. I especially love when paired with leggings, skirts or skinny jeans. It’s the perfect addition to any Summer wardrobe and can be worn with…

Fashion’s Favourite – The Bomber Jacket

Fashion’s Favourite – The Bomber Jacket

Fashion Trends, SA Fashion Designers
It doesn’t matter which stalwart sparked your fancy! It might have been the slender yet impressive frame of Olivia Palermo rocking it with towering stilettos. Or it might have been the wiry and taut body of Mick Jagger poured into its loving embrace. One thing is for sure! If you are obsessed with bomber jackets – you are on to something. Because judging by their growing street style popularity and the homage paid by the Autumn/Winter runways, these humble and nostalgic war mementoes are here to rule. The Origin of The Bomber Jacket There are wonderfully evocative nuggets of history that make a cult item what it is. And the satin embroidered  Bomber Jacket being no different has it’s own…
