Desert Storm

In January I'll be taking a trip to Swakopmund in Namibia. I'm looking forward to it, heard that it was very beautiful, its a desert meets the sea type of town, its where the German settled in this country, so its still has some of the old amazing architecture. Well, tabloid readers will know it as the town where Brangelina decided to give birth to the famous Shiloh.
I've been thinking about what to wear in this type of town, days are hot, nights can be chilly, cant go all Caribbean in the middle of the desert even though its a sea town, I'm looking forward to how I'm gonna handle this challenge.
Either way, I won't let fashion get into my way with desert fun. love.

Pre- Fall Oscar De LaRenta

Oscar's collection is the best one so far, he deserves his own post...
I really loved the looks. I could wear his clothes anytime...

Pre What???

I've been checking out style.com and I noticed that a couple of designers are showing their Pre-Fall collections.
Honestly! I don't know what the significance of this collection is. I thought I knew all the seasons; Spring, Fall, Couture.
That was until I was introduced to Resort a couple of years ago, and now comes along Pre-Fall.
I keep telling myself that maybe it's Fall's answer to Resort which usually has a host of very summery clothes. 
Will a fashionista out there please school me on this one?
Dont get me wrong, I am not complaining...Why would I?
The more clothes the better...So bring it on.
Above are some of my favourite looks so far...

7 men were arrested for those infamous London fashion buglaries. I hope they catch the South African fashion thief too.


Crimes of Fashion

On Monday, my lovely brown jacket which kept me warm last winter went missing; it was stolen while I hung it to dry on the building's communal washing line.
I don't get it; I don't understand why anyone would do that.
This reminds me of an article I read on the newspaper sometime in November about how  South African designer, Peter Saldos was robbed of 28 irreplaceable gowns that are to be worn in the upcoming Miss S.A. Pageant on December 8. Nothing else was stolen except for the gowns, so who ever were doing this, knew exactly what he was doing.
In September, Christopher Kane's collection was also stolen a few days or weeks before he had to show, Terrible! They could have destroyed his career...such people should be wiped out from the face of the earth, I mean it.

Tailored Thai-love...

Thailand Streets
A couple of years ago, I visited Bangkok, I had lots of fun, the were markets all over where you could find lovely jewellery, bought myself some and some clothes, the Thai Baht is a very friendly currency and it goes along way.
What was notable about it though was the string of great tailors on Khao San Street, which charged reasonably for their services, and you did'nt have to wait more than a few days to get whatever item you ordered.  You could order when you get there and by the time you leave, you item would be ready.  I wish us something like that around Pretoria - a walk-in tailor who would charge you fairly, do a great job, and won't make you wait for 2 weeks. I wish every place I visited had something like that; Paris, London, New York, Milan…mmhhhh, lovely. Maybe we could get some couture pieces made for us while we wait. Love
