July Jaunt with Forever New




Rock a pretty dress, get to have fun, wear a crown! Um... yes please, sign me up. Forever New invited me to this year's Vodacom Durban July for a bit of dressing up splendour. I in turn invited Sabrina, (Fashion Nanny) client and friend along to enjoy the style spotting with me. It was so lovely to be able to go in store, riffle through the rails, try on outfits and then decide on what to wear - like our very own walk in wardrobe. 

I opted for the beautifully constructed Lindsay Lace Prom Dress, paired with the Serena Single Breasted Coat in the colour "mulled wine" (mmmm sounds good). It was a very cold day so I was so glad to add a hint of stylish warmth to the dress. I don't do well in the cold and I don't like being a fashion victim either - so coat on it was. The item that made me the happiest was the crochet crown, which just so happened to be called the "Nadia Crown" - fashion fate. My leather Campo Marzio clutch was the perfect companion for stashing a few race day essentials. Sabrina wore the Lydia Prom Dress in Pink Whisp - that colour sounds almost edible. She styled her look with boots and a harder edge which made for a unique look. Overall we had a really wonderful time people watching, outfit spotting and deciding which horses we thought would win - based purely on their names (obviously) - pretty smart if you ask me.

Special thanks to the lovely Forever New team and to photographer Marlon Nero for snapping our outfits.

Decorex Joburg: InStudio & Celebrating my Birthday


"New to Decorex Joburg and a highlight for industry professionals is InStudio presented by Kohler. A day of design talks on interior trends, commercial design, architecture and creative business.

A free-flow forum exchanging fresh insights, trend observations and creative business ideas, InStudio presented by Kohler, will bring together a line-up of great minds on the local and international design scene."

In just over a week I will be heading to Joburg for Decorex as one of the speakers within the InStudio concept. I am really looking forward to it. I will be speaking at 11am on the 5th of August and would love to see you there.
To attend - you can register as a trade visitor / click here. More details below...

The talk and opening day of Decorex just so happens to be my birthday. I arrive in Joburg the day before so I will wake up in the city on my birthday and to celebrate - I would love to connect with as many creatives as possible, considering I won't be with Daniel or my family. To celebrate even further, I will have four special gifts for the first (four) blog readers who pop by to say hello and attend the talk. I'll be hanging around a bit earlier - so stop by, say hello and let's chat. You are also most welcome to come and ask me your most pressing creative business questions. I will be available to chat after my talk - plenty of time for us to catch up, so please don't be shy. See you soon!
