Outfit Of The Day - Red Alert



My body has been going through a bit of a shock since I got back from Russia; after all I came from a 30C heat into a freezing Joburg that has been having a cold front. My skin immediately starting acting out along with the rest of my body which started screaming “Take me back to summer now!”. So I am finding myself wrapping up into several layers of clothes to survive the cold. 

It’s true what they say, “One woman’s loss is another woman’s gain”. This doesn’t only apply when it comes to men, ladies! My friend Oksana purchased this coat from Guess about 3 years ago, but after a few outings with it, she decided that it just wasn’t for her. After all red is a bright colour and this style is not for everyone. The coat is absolutely gorgeous and even though she liked it on the rack, it didn’t grow into the heart at home. Oksana was going to take the coat back but I stepped in quick enough and got the coat for myself ;) It’s been getting a lot of love this winter and I am so happy that Oksana’s loss was my gain. I love this coat!

I went out for coffee with my friend Nazmira yesterday and as we were about to take the photos we spotted the Vida E Caffee right in front of us. How perfect for an all-red outfit! I love the vibe of these pictures- a European like street with a cute little red cafĂ© behind me. Oh so chic! Thank you for taking the photos Nazmira! Oh and my new Michael Kors handbag is getting its first appearance on the blog. This won’t be its last for a long time, so everybody welcome my Michael! ;)

PS If you are a tech nerd, did you ever play the “Red Alert “game that was very popular about 15 yeas back? ;) I use to play it with my cousin :)

Fashion News- Stuttafords to Re-launch in Rosebank Mall

Hello guys! Did everyone have a great weekend? One of my favourite malls in Johannesburg has recently been revamped- I am talking about Rosebank Mall that is situated in the heart of Johannesburg. The mall closed for renovations a year ago and is now finally ready for us to come and empty our wallets!  One of the stores that is getting re-launched inside the mall is the freshly renovated Stuttafords.

Stuttafords was established in 1858 and since then has become one of the most successful retail brands nationwide. It prides its self for being “Your World Of Brands” and it’s exactly what it is. Stuttafords is fun, it’s luxurious and it has something for everyone. Whether you are a make-up addict and want to get your hands on some exclusive beauty finds or a style-conscious lady looking for the perfect outfit, at Stuttafords you will find an assortment of the world’s finest fashion and beauty brands, one that you will enjoy and savour.   

Numerous make-up and clothing brands are available exclusively to Stuttafords. I am dying to get to the store so I can fill my new Michael Kors bag with some Michael Kors make-up, it’s just so gorgeous! And let’s not forget Tom Ford Private Blend, Armani Prive, Boss Collection, Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire which will be available at Stuttafords in a chic and sophisticated cosmetics emporium .Fashion brands that are my personal favourite at Stuttafords are Sass, Ted Baker, Gap, Bellfield and soon launching at Stuttafords is Banana Republic. I’ll have a more in-depth break down of the exclusive brands that Stuttafords has to offer later on in the week along with some pictures of the new collections! 

The official store opening is on the 31st of July and 4Elements Media is hosting the VIP bash. Now wouldn’t you like to join me there? Keep an eye out on the blog and my social media because a special giveaway is coming on Wednesday! Stuttafords – Your World of Brands awaits.
