We like to party....

Hey everyone 
I hope everyone had a safe weekend...I'm still hanging from the weekend hence the slow Monday i have had. On Saturday I made my way to Melody's surprise party that her hubby and best friend Fundi threw for her, I still don't know how they both kept it from her because she had NO idea and it was indeed a success of a  surprise...we tricked her...Mission Accomplished!!!

The chef, who happens to be Mel's brother  out did himself with a gourmet meal that could have won him a spot on the next "Braai Master" I could not get enough of the succulent lamb chops...It was an intimate do but a little too crazy, thanks to the champers that was on tap the whole night and of cause the patron shots..." God bless the women who can hold patron"
Miss Party Melody
Cake..Cake..Cake was the most just the best way to describe the way Mel loves her Mac makeup and designer handbags

Fundi looked dashing in her black ensemble and her ankle spiked boots were a major hit.

Sisi looked very fashion forward in her monochromatic look

Fezo added some bright colour with a hints of leopard print
Jerri looked dapper in a tee and jeans, the added detachable collar and arm candy gave the look more edge.
Melody hit it out the park with a sequin black and gold shorts paired with a black long sleeved shirt and   Christian " Lady Daf" Louboutins

I tried the ballerina bun after years of always rocking it in high school and must say i felt quite young again hahaha

Overall a super awesome night to remember filled with lots of laughs and dancing....have to give props to Fundi for the party and wishing Melody many more blessings as she is a year wiser

Monochromatic Fashion

Hello fashionistas :)

What is monochromatic fashion? Well I remember the first time I heard this word, I was like "chromo-what?" It’s a mouthful but it explains the trend perfectly. Monochromatic in fashion terms is wearing an outfit comprised of only one colour; it can be of the same shade or different shades, the idea is to keep the shades in the same hue. It can be bright colours, dark colours, it can even be nude colours. It all depends on what colour you choose to go with. There are no limitations. When done correctly a monochromatic outfit can look both stylish and fashion-forward. 

Here are some tips on how to pull off this look:

#DO mix colours of the same hue. Seen above a contrast of blue jeans paired with a navy blue shirt and a sky blue blazer.

#DO mix and match different textures. Pair cotton, wool and denim together for those cold winter days.
#DON'T use colour palettes that are to close to your skin tone.

Nudes can look very nice when done correctly.

#DO use accessories to give your look more texture.

#DON'T be afraid to experiment with bold colour palettes. Think outside the box and push the boundaries.

#DO play off formal items with casual items.
Black is probably the easiest colour to try the monochromatic look with. Everybody knows "You can never go wrong with black" my motto.

If you are not brave enough for the monochromatic look, #DO try it out first with a pair of denim jeans and the colour palette of your choice, and get yourself used to the idea first.
