So you may have seen a few sneaky instagrams where i've been talking about (and wearing) HONNE. Today I finally get to introduce you to the brand.
HONNE (pronounced Hon) is a brand new bridal label that will change everything you know about wedding dresses. Created by Lisof graduate, Daniella Du Plessis, she aims to bring something fresh, stylish and simplistic to the party.
Using soft and beautiful materials like crushed silk and Valentino fabric, brides are going to be squealing with delight to finally find an alternative for themselves and their bridesmaids.
If you're looking for something different but still simple and pretty keep a very close eye on this brand. I've already seen a few designs from Daniella's next range and the detail is incredible.
I was honoured to shoot this lovely range about two weeks ago. It was my first time (eek) shooting with so much lighting in a studio set up, but with a lot of learning and experimenting the pictures came out beautifully and captured the exact mood we wanted to achieve.
Thanks to the killer team involved in the shoot (see credits below) and congratulations to Daniella for creating such a beautiful range!

Guess has tasked me with finding the perfect denim fit in their stores. I went to the amazing Sandton store and tried on just about everything but came out with two cuts that fit me like a glove. I will be posting about these two cuts in the next two weeks. The Kate Skinny and the Power Skinny!

I love a good pair of black skinnys but to find the right fit is always a mission. This Kate Skinny Cut by Guess fits like a glove! They end perfectly around my ankles, which probably means they'll be a bit shorter for taller girls. They are so comfy and they don't stretch and get loose if you wear them for a day (which I haate with most jeans). They stay skinny!

You may have seen a sneak peek of this look over on instagram but I was involved in a little challenge with Mr P.
Mr Price gave the same shirt to a few local bloggers and we were all asked to style them in our own way. See all the results on their online store. The looks couldn't be more different!

You may think you're looking at stills from a new season of Mad Men or Pan Am, but they're actually posts from Namibian fashion blogger Loux The Vintage Guru. I discovered this amazing Tumblr via Design Indaba and have become a TAD obsessed.
"The budding fashion designer and all-round exquisitely-dressed dude is making waves with a collective of twenty-something like-minded style innovators to promote the fashion industry in Africa and inspire the art of elegant dressing. The result is a visual delight of unparalleled style that Loux documents on his Tumblr."
He describes his style as sophisticated-punk. "I fell in love with vintage pieces, especially from the 1960s, and normally alter them to fit me and modernise them in my own way. Most of the suits I wear are actually my late dad’s suits. I wear a hat with every outfit as well as vintage club ties – I think they're both stylish and respectful."
Lourens Loux Gebhardt is definitely a name to watch, and i'm also particularly excited to see the progress of his own fashion label.

Last night I attended the Woolworths Winter 2014 launch. It was such a beautiful event held at the iconic Turbine Hall. We were wined and dined with MCC from Villiera and delicious bites by David Higgs (from Five Hundred). We got a peek at all the new winter ranges from Woolworths, Country Road and their new acquisitions Mimco and Witchery.
Everybody was dressed to kill as the "best dressed" of the night would walk away with two tickets to New York! I decided to put in a good effort but unfortunately I didn't win, I did however get to wear this incredible dress from a new alternative bridal label called Honne. I looved the sheer Tulle and white look but decided to grunge it up with a little bit with leather.
There are so many beautiful dresses in this range. Look out for a full post on Honne soon. I shot the look book for the label last week and the photos have come out so beautifully!

I've been looking for a pair of dark blue denims for ages and think I've met my match. This is a Power skinny cut by Guess and similarly to the previous post they fit me like a glove. They are so nice and stretchy, but again they don't get loose after wear. I've hardly taken them off since I got them!

Lately i've become pretty obsessed with two-pieces. They're such easy/lazy outfits to throw on, and i'm particularly taken with this new Mr Price Tartan suit! The fit is incredible and I'm definitely going to wear this look well in winter! (Just add tights, boots, and perhaps a red lip).
I'm also loving messy braids. They're my favourite bad hair day fix and are great for shoots too.
I've been living in an editing black hole for a few weeks trying to catch up with our crazy summer season and I will slowly be posting some of the highlights over at Lad & Lass (and maybe some here too). I am happy to say i'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel : ) so you'll be seeing a lot more of me around here soon.

Oh and if you want to get your hand on this two-piece, I would suggest do it online soon before they're all sold out!
