I absolutely love Halloween and with my new dark grey hair, who better to be than Wednesday? My favourite costumes are the ones you can create last-minute from your own closet because it gives you an opportunity to get creative with make up and use your own key accessories to add that personal touch to your look. This is what I'm going to be rocking at the end of the month and now Zuri is giving one of my readers the chance to win all of the accessories pictured, just in time for Halloween!

I know I love the gothy stuff but if that's not your thing, I did include some pretty stackable rings and a chain cuff that you can either wear lose and low or tight and high. LOVE ❤

How to enter: use the Rafflecopter widget below to follow Zuri on at least two social networks. If you already follow them, just confirm this.

If you have Twitter, you can enter again by tweeting the message within the widget which you'll get a chance to preview before you publish. Basically, the more actions you take, the more your entries you'll get. Easy as pumpkin pie!

Rocking the Daisies




Dress - Again Again at Dolls Kill 
Gold hairband - Zuri
Sunglasses - Zara
Spike bracelet - Zuri
Ring Bracelet - River Island
Heels - Jeffrey Campbell at The Lot

It's been so long since I've done an outfit post! Since I can't make it to Rocking The Daisies this year, I decided to have a little fun putting together a Daisies-themed look. At least I can assuage my FOMO with these sick Jeffrey Campbells that would not cut it at a festival. MGMT were amazing at Coachella this year so I know everyone who's going will have a blast; I'll be over here stalking social media to check out all the festival fashions. I guess there's always next year ;)

Markham FEDISA Fashion Flash 2014




Earlier this month, FEDISA presented their 2nd annual Markham Fashion Flash menswear show. The fashion design institution's 2nd years were briefed by the Markham team and divided into groups that would each focus on one Spring/Summer trend. The students then collaborated with each other to create capsule collections which included handmade accessories that impressed me - huge accessories girl over here!

Original prints, manipulated denim and delightful details kept the crowd on the events deck entertained, as well as live music from Mark and Gareth Haze. Students also showcased more avant-garde pieces in the 2nd half of the show where they played with knits and knots for a textural treat. There were three winning designs on the day and these students were awarded with prizes from Markham, including internships. First place went to Catherine McIntosh whose vibrant creation incited exclamations when her model revealed his blazer's edgy spine pleats. LOVE!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, seeing such creative menswear is so refreshing and I'm glad FEDISA is giving its students the opportunity to delve into this realm in 2nd year. It could inspire a new generation of South African menswear designers which is what our industry needs.  
Thanks to FEDISA for having me. I'd also like to congratulate every 2nd year lecturer and student on a job well done, talk about combining a mass of technical design skills into one assignment! I know how hard everyone at FEDISA works and I promise you, it's worth it. Well done and keep it up. You can check out more from the show on Facebook.

Spree S/S Lookboard 2014




Last week I attended the Spree Lookboard event which showcased the leading online fashion retailer's summer showstoppers featuring designs by Shana Morland, Gert-Johan Coetzee, Ruff Tung, Thula Sindi, Adam & Eve and Ilan, just to name a few.  

The prints were gorgeous and the brights were stunning. My personal favourites were the pastel statement dress by Ruff Tung and the art-inspired Bold Strokes look as seen on the model with the Paul's Boutique coral handbag. Wow! Can the stylist responsible for that please stand up? I'm guessing it was Spree's Fashion Director, Chris Viljoen. Listen, I wouldn't mind being BFFs, just saying. 

Spree also launched Spree Boutique which is an online collection of garments by top South African designers. I really do love the initiative Spree takes with supporting our local talent, it's now super easy to shop SA fashion. 

Thanks to Spree as well as the lovely ladies pictured above; Jasna, Tegan and Fatima. I had a great time checking out what's in store for summer. You can shop Spree at spree.co.za
