Summer is officially upon us here in Cape Town - and we both know how good a white dress looks on anyone!
By night, a street full of lights. By day, a street full of stalls. If you come to Cape Town - Long Street is the place to be.
I am having major mixed emotions towards this weather. On the one hand - I cannot wait for Summer: beaches, tans, smoothies, iced coffees and so on... but with the current dam level average across the province on 17 October being 35.9%, my current excitement comes with much stress.
Today I bring you some outfit inspiration with a swing dress! These dresses were worn to dance swing - a style of dance that developed with the swing style of jazz music in the 1920s to 1950s.
Okay, let's talk about the real eye-catcher in this outfit. These are the Gigi Hadid Vogue limited edition sunglasses... and I am in love.
My sister, Michaela, is graduating at the end of the year. After 6 YEARS of studying, she will officially be Dr Grimbly! (although, Micky, you still have, like, a bajillion years to go... *sigh*) Watch my video to see how beautiful she looked!
So I have decided to do something a little different today. As the heading suggests... I made a Zara clothing haul!
The first baseball hats were made out of straw and were first worn by the New York Knickerbockers on the 24th of April 1849. After a few years of straw, the cap transformed and started being made out of merino wool. During the 1940's, latex rubber was used to stiffen the material inside the hat. This was when the modern baseball cap was first born!
Oscar de La Renta created the first maxi in 1968. It was made out of cotton lace and was for Elizabeth Arden Salon. I've written about the mini dress and so it's only fitting that I write about the maxi dress.
The BodyCon dress, otherwise known as the bandage dress, was first designed by Hervé Leroux in the early 90s. "I didn't want to launch until I truly understood the whole idea. A bandage dress isn't a woven, it's all knitted on a knitting machine and is a completely different concept..."
Once upon a time... polka dots were taboo. Polka dots were definitely not considered a pattern that made people happy.
The reactions of people today when someone wears a sheer dress is always that of 'shocked and interested.' It was only a matter of time though, seeing as 'naked' or sheer dresses have been around for centuries.
