#2017 #HappyNewYear

Dear StyleSociety fam,

Thank you all for your continued support with Style Society over the years and with my newly launched online store Haute Edit. I have so many exciting things planned for 2017 that I cannot wait to share with you. So please remember to check in with Style Society every week. I also have some amazing giveaways planned for you which I am so excited about.

I am still very much a part of the slow blogging movement and will be updating my blog on a weekly basis. Please make sure you drop in every Monday for new content. Thank you so much for being a part of Style Society and for your lovely comments. I look forward to connecting with all of you. Please remember to include a link to your blog when you leave comments so that I can return the love ♡

I thought I’d share a little more about myself… So here’s a snippet of an interview I did for Grazia South Africa, which was never published because the magazine shut down at the end of November last year…

Me, Myselfie and I

How old are you? Fabulous 40 🙂

What is the last thing in your Google search history? Hussein Bazaza SS17

What kind of person were you in high school? Extremely shy but fearless! And a non-conformist – I still am.

How did your career get started? I have always had a love for fashion that borders on obsession. Eight years ago I did a career shift from Cost Estimating and Project Management in the corrosion engineering industry to being a fashion entrepreneur. Fashion was my calling, naturally!

I live with gratitude and embrace my challenges – My glass is always half full!

What is your favourite driving music? Luurve Tupac Shakur! & mostly 90s Hip Hop and some Old School. Throw some Michael Jackson into that mix!

What are some new hobbies you would like to take on? I don’t have much time for hobbies but after a 20 year break, I’ve picked up on my painting again. I’ve spent many winter days sitting next to a toasty fire, messing around with my paintbrushes.

If there was a phrase that you think best sums up your approach to life, what might it be? “Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill. I live with gratitude and embrace my challenges – My glass is always half full!

Which of your body parts do you feel the most affection for? My feet!

What snack food can you not live without? Why? Toasted coconut flakes. Why? You have to taste to understand.

Describe your favourite outfit of all time and how you feel when you wear it? A Carrie Bradshaw moment in my pink Tsotetsi KL ball gown skirt! Love it when her iconic style statements find resonance in my wardrobe

What’s the last thing you bought online? Honestly? Groceries.
