#MyPersonalStyle : Corporate style (How to get away with bad hair)

What do you do when you have to go to work but your hair is a mess? Well I won’t let that spoil my day or whole outfit. Grabbed a scarf, searched on YouTube ways to tie creatively head wraps and voila away good, no wait GREAT to go. I used a scarf with colours in my outfit for the day. It matched the shoes, skirt and jacket and yep I got compliments and even forgot about the messy hair. 🙂 Don’t despair, theres always a way.




Make sure the way you tie your headgear is subtle to fit a corporate environment. Don’t go overboard and do all sorts of artistic wraps. Have fun

Scarf: eBay, Shoes: Woolworths_sa, Skirt and Jacket: Foschini


#MyPersonalStyle : The Shift Dress

This is one classic unstructured dress that falls straight from the shoulder, has no darts, little or no side contouring, and is designed not to be worn with a belt. It never worked before when I was lean now I go for it for that smart relaxed casual look.

Tunic dress

The warm colours obviously

jeggings and shift dress

Another side to my dress

I opted for flats since I knew there will be a lot of moving around. It looks great in soft fabrics.

If you are a pear shaped/triangle this one is for you especially with sleeves this length to create the hourglass balanced body.

The Refined Lady

It has been a while  of no sharing, Well, long story short; I gained weight (UK6 to UK10!). I am not even complaining! For once I’m able to buy most clothes of my clothes off the store and wear them without altering. It was always a battle to find clothes that are ready made and fit. Either waist fit and length didn’t, or length fits but waist didn’t. I also cut my dreads and started new ones. I wanted to try something different. (owai! it didn’t materialise) I know right. Once a locstar, always! anyways, I’ve decided to create a category here to share some of my looks and how I put together some of my outfits. I will if available, also add links where you can buy them.

Below is my favourite LBD – two looks

pringle black dress

Dress from Woolworths and Pringle Jacket



The second look is same black dress, OldKhaki Leather Jacket and Green Cross Shoes

Moved from professional to casual with just a change of the jacket.
