Office Dress Code

Or lack thereof. A few weeks back I had an interview with a financial consulting company and had nothing to wear. I am a big time believer in the power of first impressions and being someone who works in the fashion industry, I certainly wanted to dress to impress. I remember the utter shock on…

Casual Coolness

When a typical day consists of university, running errands and some form of exercise, I most likely opt for easy-to-wear pieces that maximise comfort and practicality and don’t compromise on style. This black dress has come to solve many of these kinds of style ruts. The combination of the short sleeves and low back with…

Munro Drive

Remember a few weeks back when I told you there was more to come from Josh and I? Well the wait is over my friends. You may remember this dress from this post a while back. I mentioned that we had done the look two ways and you would have to wait to see the second version….

Colour Curated

This dress is one of my favourite go-to pieces. It’s constantly on rotation and I love how its simplicity speaks volumes. It’s my saving grace when I have to quickly throw something on and be out the door – without looking like I have put in zero effort. The combination of the lightweight and flowy…

As a child, I absolutely hated the colour olive green.

Starstruck

When I spotted this dress in the shops a few weeks back, I knew in that instant that I was sold. A dress like this fills a huge void in my wardrobe – a modest piece of clothing that is neither boring nor dull. With its appropriate length and wide shoulder-covering sleeves, I initially picked…

Feel Good Friday

Because TGIF was created for a reason. If this outfit could be any day of the week, it would be a Friday. The bright, bold top with the relaxed 70’s-inspired wide leg pants represent all our Friday feels – happiness, excitement, the need to party, the need to chill. (You get where I’m going with…

For the longest time, I have only heard good things about coconut oil. From cooking to skincare to hair management and everything in between. With its anti-bacterial and health promoting properties, it’s not hard to understand why coconut oil has been recommended on every platform. Being in the beauty industry and having a keen interest…

Deliberate Denim

I first wore this dress to a friend’s wedding in June. Liat actually bought it for me, on the day! The wedding was in winter and I literally had nothing to wear. I was writing exams and didn’t have the time to find something. When Liat sent me a photo of this dress, I knew it…
