Happy Tuesday dolls! Yesterday I was at the launch of the MBFWCT17 courtesy of the fabulous people at Mercedes-Benz SA. The launch was held at the stunning Mesh in Rosebank just up the Glam Alley! I spent the night with some fabulous leaders in fashion in Johannesburg and the gracious Dr Precious Motsepe.

OOTN: I stepped out in my bamboo handle Gucci Dinosysus with my a snug pair of jeans and strappy heels – P.S this baby is a def part of my classic bags now! I saw the black one on Beyonce and died, I had to get my own in my own style something that was a bit more missposhglam, Gucci collection is growing gradually, Ive always been an LV lover so the the change is still scary *covers eyes*. Yesterdays look was a inspired by the Queens look one of my faves casual yet classy.

Missposhglam x Cotton On

IMG_6492.jpgIMG_6495 copy.jpgIMG_6495.jpg I had so much fun styling these male and female weekend looks all by Cotton On. Weekend dressing should be comfortable and easy to wear. I’m always in heels so getting flats and an uber casual look was a bit of a challenge to my usual day to day “missposhglam” look.

I’ll start with the Men’s look, I loove Men’s Fashion and thoroughly enjoyed styling this look. Also my photographer got to be in front of the lens for this one lol! Just like us ladies Men really need wardrobe staples that can take you from  casual friday through the weekend and a good Denim jacket and jeans make great wardrobe staples for men as well. I styled this look with a denim jacket and denims from Cotton On and this cabana tee also from Cotton On, I finished his look off with classic club round  Raybans. Simple clean and swaggy 🙂

My second look is for the ladies i absolutely love, The Classic bomber in in different material the velvet really lends itself to being the go to material for AW16 . Jusy when you thought the classic bomber couldn’t get any better I found this beauty. I love the detail on this Sophia velvet bomber it’s sooo me chic and arty , so it’s no surprise I fell in love with it instantly. I styled this jacket with black skinnies and the jody sneaker by Rubi at Cotton on, with the cutest XO. tee , simple weekend looks done all thanks to Cotton On 🙂

Happy Tuesday and thanks for visiting

Denim Dress Edit

DSC_0298-Recovered.jpgDSC_0003.jpgDSC_0282.jpgshoes .jpgDSC_0263.jpgDSC_0256-Recovered.jpgAs promised I’m sharing how versatile Replay Denim is and this week we’re looking at the Denim Dress!

There are lots of different variations when it comes to denim dresses, some are tight, buttoned, short, long, slouchy… The list is endless, but there’s different ways of wearing each style and it couldn’t be easier!

The denim dress was made quite popular by the likes of Alexa Chung actually a couple of years ago, we kept spotting her out and about in different cuts and fits and she completely rocked them! Then it came to her releasing her own take on the trend with her AG denim collage and everyone has loved them since. Denim dresses have become a statement in their own right! So, how do you wear or style a denim dress?

One of the most popular denim dress styles is the shirt dress, the shirt dress is a long version of a denim shirt and it can be fitted or slouchy. Some shirt dresses have subtle buttons on the front, much like a button up, but others are slip overs and they come in a variety of washes. What I think is the best way to wear a shirt dress is with heels and bare legs. The contrast of the amount of denim covering your torso combined with the bare legs and extra length is fantastic. It makes you look slimmer, chicer and gorgeous.

I styled my stunning zip up denim dress from Replay with my yellow christian louboutin pigalle. yes when it comes to loubies, a girl can’t have enough 🙂

Happy Monday dolls

DSC_0140.jpgDSC_0143.jpgDSC_0168.jpgDSC_0162.jpgMissposhglam x Replay : There’s something about a good denim shirt you can take it from casual to chic within minutes but the best part is that it takes you through all the seasons.

I would definitely  encourage those who don’t own a denim shirt by now to get one. Why? Well because of the perks it comes with. You’ve got the western thing. The group thing. And the FASHION thing. Cause you know, the denim shirt is only the #1 staple since James Dean or so. Funny how denim anything is a staple, right? And I’m guessing it has to do with its versatility and effortlessness, how easy it translates to absolutely any look and style, remaining a trend or a ‘look’ if you will in any season of any decade.

It’s cool. It’s chic, if you want it to be. It’s bohemian, if you’re into that. It’s classy too. Not to mention sophisticated, and the best part about it is you can’t go wrong with it. No matter how you wear it or style it it’ll look amazing. Or at least effortlessly cool. I styled my slim fitted Denim Shirt from REPLAY with a comfy pair of skinnies jeans from Replay,and gave them a french roll to make them my own style. What I like about both these items is how well they fit, again i can’t stress enough how important a good pair of denims as a wardrobe staple are! I finished off my look with my pigalle 100mm Dorepi louboutins and my fave W bag from Louis Vuitton

DSC_0303.jpgMissposhglam x Replay: This Winter it’s all about brightly coloured faux fur and this cropped jacket by Replay is just the right amount of kitsch! The Replay AW16 collection fits into my style so effortlessly it’s for the ladies who are bold, aren’t afraid to take fashion risks and unapologetically slay! Because we don’t imitate anyone, but are our own style icons! Every item in store feels unique bold and well… missposhglam!

Denim skirt Edit

The  denim skirt has been trending for a couple of seasons now, ever since Alexa Chung released her iconic version in her AG collaboration for SS15. She has gone one better most recently though and designed a few more versions in varying lengths for the autumn 2015 collection and we have seen this style on so many fashion bloggers and celebrities already!

My fave is the take on the classic denim skirt , the distressed pencil denim skirt.Brands have done their own take on the trend, releasing styles in long, short and mid lengths in light, mid or dark blue. Some have a more unique appeal with distressing and variations on the buttons, while some are completely classic and speak of the 90’s. One thing is for sure and that’s that the denim skirt trend is staying! I love how it gives me a casual yet chic look because, its also so easy to dress up. I’ve styled my denim pencil skirt from Nimcouture with Roberto Cavali gold scrappy sandals,my classic burberry watch,gold ring from spree, my classic flap chanel bag, and a denim coloured tee from woolworths (SS15) have a fabulous tuesday dolls!

Every fashionista knows how important it is to own a number of good jeans, because we all know jeans are the anchor of most outfits. There is nothing more versatile than denim no matter what shape or size the best part is styling denim is pretty much limitless, it is one universal wardrobe MUST HAVE ladies. It’s no coincidence that denim has a presence in every new fashion season be it SS or AW, it never ever dates! What’s not to love? Stop treating denim like the go to piece when you have nothing to wear, because every fashionista knows denim along side a good court and white T are absolute non negotiable wardrobe essentials. It’s not a weekend go to or Chanel wouldn’t sell them *jokes*. Today I styled my boyfriend jeans with a short sleeve chanel knit, white cape jacket from nimcouture, nude courts from aldo and my tan Celine tie bag, to get my chic yer casual look, Fashion can be bought, style is something one possess because anyone with real style can put together anything and look amazing in it. Hope you’re having a fabulous week, thanks for visiting
