Statement Pieces & Must-Haves: SHOES

It’s Fashion Fridays in Minx Land and I feel a strong need to express my love for shoes once more.

I know, I know, shoes require no words, they just are, and in their resplendent being-ness, they make me so happy 🙂

So I’m just going to share with you some of my favourites and wait for your drooling mouth to join mine.

Statement Pieces & MUST-Haves I

Its Fashion Friday!!!

Every woman knows there are those items of clothing that are absolute MUST-Haves… Pieces that are a staple in every woman’s closet and that you can wear with almost anything.

Okay, I guess this applies to men as well but…who cares??

Lol, just kidding dear gentlebrother.

Then there are those items that are absolute statement pieces, that item that, when you wear it, you know the looks you are getting have nothing to do with toothpaste on the side of your face. With it on, you walk taller, bolder and sexier because that morning, your inner goddess came out to play. 😉

Naturally, these statement pieces and must-haves may differ for everyone, but I tried to list some of mine below. Naturally, dreaming of my ideal closet I got a bit carried away, but I’m sure you will be able to accomodate and forgive me.

Enjoy 😉

 A nice loose shirt that you can wear with your leggings, jeans, boots, whatever.

I love the look for those lovely relaxed days…

 Cowl-drape dress… Yes. I think for all body types this would work wonders and make you look beautiful!

 A well-cut trench coat, oh yes please!!

 A pencil dress like this…

In colours like this…


 Or maybe this kind of fit and flare number is more your style… more suited to your body-type?

In this colour it is HOT.

 If I can get ankle boots that make my legs look like this???


 Tell me that wearing this chiffon gown wouldn’t make you feel like the most beautiful princess in the world… Try it… I dare you…

 Oh, did I mention boots like this?? 😀

 Patterned sweaters like this are all the rage, and they usually work with anything!

 A bathing suit that flatters every curve and inch… That’s the goal.

Personally I love this old school cut 🙂

 Or maybe a corset in the same style???

Love the idea of a corset with a high-waisted skirt.

….to be continued…


Swag vs. Suave…

There is nothing sexier than a woman who knows who she is, understands herself and her body, and can reflect a touch of her personality and feelings in her outfit.

For those who are more like me…sometimes we wake up feeling very boho chic, and other times its more chanel-elegance that wins.

Feel free to be both, or neither, whenever you choose. That sexy pencil skirt and those sky-high mary janes are very hot, but if sometimes you want to wear a tulle skirt with combat boots, you are not alone, I am your style-soul-mate.

Denim shirts and shift dresses, head scarves and well-cut blazers, maxi dresses and skirts, floral pieces and tribal prints, cowl-drape dresses and frayed shorts, peplum and combat boots…who says you can’t do it all?

If today your look screams “swag” and tomorrow it says “suave”, then that’s exactly how you are meant to look.


























As I’m sure everyone has already noticed, I’ve always been a huge fan of colours…whether bright, pale or pastel, as long as its relatively gorgeous or unique, I fall. Just because South Africa is heading – or rather, has already headed – into another early winter, I see no reason to resort to dark and gloomy colours for the next three or four months.

Was looking at some beautiful colours that are doing the rounds lately and I absolutely HAD to share…enjoy them with me please. And don’t forget to never leave the house without a pop of colour!

Photoshoot III

The third and final instalment in our Photoshoot Friday…(awww 😦 )

I would like to show you what Nicole Richie has done with her life. Following the immense flop that was her public persona after the reality show/Paris Hilton bff/bulimia saga of her life, she got some sense, cleaned herself up, got married, had a coupla babies and generally became someone you could like.

Her’s the mother of two in a more mature look for Flare Magazine…



Next we’ve got Emily Atack of Inbetweeners fame. The 22 year old was catapulted into the limelight in the British comedy series, but I bet you have never seen her look this sexy. Posing for FHM, Emily spoke about her rise to fame, her new role in a film called Get Lucky. Check her out….




Agent Provocateur, the makers of all things naughty AND nice… have launched a new line, along with a new face. Trying to create the sensuality and allure of the seventies, they got French model Mylene Jampanoi to sell their undies in their ‘Emmanuelle’ inpired campaign.

The new Fifi collection ranges from 65 Euros for briefs to 695 for a rose-printed silk gown.

Check it out…
