Some of you may remember this post (click here) on my last pair of LB jeans. Needless to say, I basically live in them. Lucky Brand let me grab another pair so I tried on a few different styles and colours this time. Which ones are you feeling – The Charlie, The Brooke, The Charlie Super Skinny or The Lolita?
I chose the sweet grey Charlie skinny’s which will probably become a staple this winter.

Get yourself a decent hand-cream. You’ll have pretty hands and something new to get all OCD about. I got my hemp hand protector from The Body Shop.
Invest in a pair of black, high-waisted tailored pants and be prepared for your life to change. Dress them up with a crop and heels or chill it out with a kimono and sandals. Winning! (Can you tell I write about fashion all day for a living?)

After weeks of deliberating and hours in the salon, I finally present to you, my much shorter and blonder hurr. I’ve had almost every hair colour and hairstyle known to middle earth, but none quite like this! I love doing drastic and crazy things to my coiffure because you know, yolo, and also it grows back.
PS: In true first world problem style, which black crop do you think looks best for my Hepburn-esque look?
A brief account of how I landed up doing the most bizarre impromptu look post shoot in the mist at Tala Game Reserve…
Last weekend, the Gloss Lady asked me to be her Plus One to a wedding. Normalsville right? That was until La told me that she was going as a “blogger proxy” for a friend who couldn’t be at her little brother’s Big Day. Apparently, it’s a common thing in the UK for people to send writers to weddings to capture the day for them, should they not be able attend.
So off we went, severely hungover from the night before, to a wedding where we knew no-one. We managed to get completely lost and run up to our seats as the bride was walking down the aisle. Our hopes to fly under the radar were now completely diminished and we spent the rest of the night explaining to people how we landed up in and amongst long lost friends and dear relatives.
Even better is that (as the seating arrangement put it) I was known as La’s “assistant” and we were placed at the table right in front of the wedding party. I now probably happen to feature heavily in most of the photos and film during the speeches as I am sure my bad allergies were mistaken for emotional tears. The camera was on me more than at the wedding where I was an actual bridesmaid.
The bride also kept giving us confused glares and I can’t blame her. Not only were we strangers at her meticulously planned and intimate do, but we were also the first to jump up to the buffet or to grab healthy helpings of dessert.
Nothing better to do than take a few outfit pics while we were at it right?
Thought I’d introduce a new weekly section, documenting the looks I have werked this week. A female blogger has no chance without having a strong fashion section game – what can I say I sold out and I like it!
YAY! WE MADE IT! Things were tough, there are some people I’d like to thank and I managed to have some fun along the way. Feels like an acceptance speech because it was quite a performance putting on makeup ERRday.
Caz found inspiration from a shop called Spell Under Gypsy, and clashed colours and prints with a coral slogan T, leopard print skirt and bad-ass skull necklace.
In tribute to my love for jeans and slops, I paired a tartan shirt and some boho jewellery to jazz it up a tad. I have to say this is the outfit I feel most happy in.
