A game of cat and ... bird

I know it's not fashion related - but I just had to share this pic with you.
While I was away on the Vodacom shoot, my parents looked after my bird. Here he is on top of the cage while the cat was inside. Oh how the roles are reversed...

Mara Hoffman - NY Fashion Week

I fell in love with Mara Hoffman's latest collection at NY Fashion Week.

Her collection incorporated some classic styles (like the maxi dress, mini skirt, asymmetrical dress, etc) but her twist was the use of fabulously floaty fabrics and psychodelic prints and patterns.

Vodacom Shoot - Behind the Scenes

I had a FAB time last week styling the Vodacom shoot - although managing 30 models at a time can be quite daunting...

But I got through - thanks to my friends at Red Bull!

Here is one of the shots that we took - hopefully will be up on a billboard somewhere some time!

Happy Spring Day!

In honour of the first day of spring, I cleaned out my wardrobe. Hidden in the dark recesses of my closet were things from millenia ago that simply needed to go... Belts were tossed in haphazardly into the back of the shelf and eventually looked like enraged snakes trying to get to freedom.

Here are some before and after pics of my manic wardrobe - with a few tips and hints on getting your own wardrobe spring clean right!

My shoes - Before and After

My belts - Before and After (With over 60 belts, it's important I categorise them by colour!)

My clutch bags neatly packed away

My pants categorised by colour - Black to white

To make some space in my wardrobe for Spring and Summer, I packed away my winter stuff. Bye boots! My tan boots are my favs so will miss them for the next few months!
