the shirt-under-your-dress trend

This classic 90s trend has crept back into street style. It’s a way of wearing your party dresses during the day. It’s also perfect if you have spaghetti straps or uncomfortably low cut dresses… how will you wear yours?

I’ve got inspiration for a whole new way of wearing my wardrobe. Hooray for practical trends!

butter pudding is so darling

I stumbled upon this local brand for little people, Butter Pudding, while admiring the Instagram account of Bailey from Kimmy & Bear. She dresses her twin girls (Florence and Anna) in the sweetest little outfits, and in one of their pics they were wearing little tasselled boots from Butter Pudding that caught my eye. I had to check this label out, and I’m so impressed. The African prints remind me of the little calico dresses my mum used to make for me when I was little. I just love that there are more and more local offerings in terms of fashion for little people. Go check Butter Pudding out!

are you a sneakerhead?

Autumn is here, winter is coming… And that means a wardrobe update! This year it’s all about the sneaker for us. We still love our boots, but to be practical, as mamas who still want to look stylish, it’s sneakers all the way.

Last year Liza switched between a very old pair of pink Adidas trainers and an apple green pair of Reeboks, but this winter it’s time for an update. Emily’s just bought a pair of Supergas (see below) and she can’t believe it took her so long. They have barely left her feet since. She wears them with everything from jeans to office-style LBDs – basically her wardrobe has been revolutionised, in fact her entire ‘look’ on a day-to-day basis. Liza is still on the hunt!

What’s your favourite pair and how do you wear them?

H&M hits SA!

We were super excited to attend the VIP media launch of H&M at the V&A Waterfront last week. It was massive! Every local celeb and media person we’ve ever known was there and the store was – literally – pumping.

It’s huge – two floors of fashion for women, men and kids, as well as a gorgeous home section. We basically walked through the doors and immediately started shopping. You’ll be glad to know, the prices are incredible.

Welcome to SA H&M, we are extremely glad you are here!

rollneck style

I am so pleased that the rollneck has made a comeback this autumn/winter. It’s always been a favourite. There is nothing on earth so cosy.

Here are a few inspirational looks that I’m going to be trying out as the weather gets colder.

Adriaan Kuiters X JP + PICHULIK

Award-winning accessories designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik has teamed up with designer Keith Henning of Adriaan Kuiters and artist Jody Paulsen on their S/S15 collection. “The new prints we developed required new adornments to balance them and Pichulik’s aesthetic perfectly complimented the on-trend sporty-meets-arty collection and fabrics,” says Henning.

Fabrics such as knits, crêpe, chiffon, neoprene, cotton, twill and abaya form the perfect backdrop for Pichulik’s neckpieces, bracelets and earrings that were designed specifically for the various looks. “I wanted to create pieces that excite and as always created these colourful and bold designs for women who push the boundaries and honour beauty,” says Pichulik.
