Talking hair again…

There’s only so much you can do with dark-ish brown hair which tends to dryness, doesn’t like being lightened, and throws lots of brassy warmth. You can try fighting it, as I have done many times over the years, with attempts at balayage, foils, dark blonde {WTF was I thinking???}, and various ashy tones which ...

OOTD :: March: lots of black with a splash of pink.

Can I just say that I can’t believe it’s April already? After a colourful and print filled summer of frocks I got to the point where I was in desperate need of some black. Black everything and anything. Just black. I just feel like me when I look more ready to attend a funeral than ...

DECJUBA :: The Autumn wishlist

It’s no secret that my favorite store of the past year is DECJUBA, and a quick scroll through their Insta feed makes it clear why: denim, black, stripes, and frocks. And my long love of retro everything and my more recent love of prints notwithstanding, Decjuba is the one brand that is basically my default ...

OOTD :: February frock round up.

February was super colourful and packed full of prints. There was something about all the vivid frocks I’ve worn this past summer that just really cheered me up. And while it would make sense to keep wearing that kind of stuff the truth is that I have officially reached the point of craving the classics, ...

OOTD :: The Great Decjuba Crush of 2017: still going strong

My daughter has taken to asking me if I secretly work for Decjuba, because I’m either raving on about the latest and newest favourite whatever I bought there or encouraging her to go check it out. {And buy her own stuff so she can stop stealing mine. Maybe.} There has been a bunch of new ...

OOTD: lots of colour

There’s something strange in the neighbourhood…so much colour and so many loud prints making their way into my wardrobe…from palm trees to so much green which I usually hate with a passion to pastels to paisleys… I’m going to chalk it up to the warmer weather and a cheerful state of mind… Top: Kmart Skirt: ...

Style Icon:: WINONA RYDER

She’s the 90’s grunge pin-up who’s made a small screen comeback recently, once easily recognised by her gamine pixie-ish cut but these days wearing her hair long and wavy and totally owning it. Style-wise she’s gone from slip dresses and rolled up Levi’s to killer red carpet gowns, but the leather jacket and street vibe ...

Red-dy to rock

There are few things that can instantly lift my mood while making me feel fierce all at the same time, but a bold red lip does the trick every time. I’ve had my share of red lipsticks, ranging from cheap as chips supermarket brands to the iconic must-haves. Like everything else I definitely go through ...

OOTD: palm trees on her pants

There are prints and then there are prints. My colourful pineapple dress was a huge move for me, but when I spied a pair of slouchy pants in some kind of palm tree print, in a slightly garish green hue {SO not a colour I like}, I can’t even tell you what appealed to me ...

Ten times Kim Kardashian West got it SO right

This post was never going to fall into the Style Icons series, because there have been, as we all know, way too many shockers, but for every ten what-the-f***-was-she-thinking??? looks comes one genuine gem. Even ignoring the older styles before the prerequisite stylist entered the fray, back when most celebs got it wrong more often ...
