My amazing friends threw me the most stylish bridal shower ever. The girls were quite sneaky planning it, because I didn't suspect a thing. Everyone looked stunning in white at a gorgeous golf estate in Midrand. The décor was beautiful with shades of gold and white against the lush backdrop of the golf course. It was such a fun afternoon, thank you to all my girls for making it special.
Loved the white theme..
The gifts were so pretty, I am a lucky girl..

Later on in the day, we decided to channel Solange- It was too much fun.
Day 2 of Fashion week was disastrous, a sand storm hit Jo'burg an hour before the show and it destroyed along with the tent our hopes of seeing the Clive Rundle collection. After a 2 hour delay the show organizers decided to postpone to Sunday.
But all was not lost, we still got all dressed up and got high on the fashion frenzy.

SA Fashion week is one of the most exciting events in the Jo'bug fashion calendar. Fashionistas from every corner of this great city come out to play in their Sunday best. The city is abuzz with excitement and anticipation. This year's fashion week is no different; fashionable people.. check, sparkling drinks on hand.. check, wonderful friends.. check and check, and of course the blazing hot clothes on the runway..double check. What is the fuss with fashion week you may ask? Picture this 10 minutes of gorgeous garments coming down the runway to music blasting so loud you worry a little about your hearing- yet somehow you and your friends understand each other perfectly on what your favourite looks and the misses are. You have the rare opportunity to do the best window shopping possible on exquisite models that seem to glide down the catwalk giving you the first glimpse of the seasons must haves. It is exhilarating!
The shows we saw: Black Coffee- solid designer with lots of practical clothes for the girl on the go with impeccable craftsmanship. I loved the well tailored jackets and the interesting bird and eye prints.
Gert Johan Coetzee- This designer makes clothes for women- sexy, confident, sophisticated women. Whether you are going to the office, the beach or an evening event; Gert has the ability to make you look like a million bucks. He used gorgeous models with curves - and we got to see just how flattering and sexy the clothes are on girls that look like us normal people.. almost look like us.

In this look I am wearing my go to Summer maxi skirt- its perfect for those hot days when you need your clothes to be light and effortless. I have paired this skirt with a crop top before and it worked just as well.
This dress is perfection. When I saw it I had to have it. I panicked a little when I realized that it is backless. Backless is cute, but lets be honest its not practical. I was concerned about support for the girls, I decided to buy the dress and deal with the back issues later - not an advisable shopping strategy by the way. I really didn't want my bra showing at the back, so I had the idea to wear a backless one piece bikini underneath. Bikini support is not great but it had to do.
