#TGIFF: THANK GOD IT’S A FASHION FRIDAY.

J&B Met 2014 weekend

The crazy thing about seaside sunsets –if you are an inlander like me, is that cocktail hour(s) is a whole new different story altogether. You see, where I reside, a night out usually commences as the sun sets, but when I was in Cape Town for the J&B Met weekend with plan to paint the town black and gold, I had somehow forgotten that dusk happens much later. This bids a puzzle and calls for a carefully constructed look able to transcend from very late afternoon to dawn. Thankfully I am something of a maven in this regard and managed to put together a head-turner of an ensemble in no time. No harsh tricks were employed because I really wanted to balance odd proportions with significant pieces. I based the final party dress up on the unchanging Fit vs some sort of volume direction.  Here I am wearing a printed long-sleeved mid-thigh length chiffon shirt by Scalo Designs with a pair of black skinny jeans to mark a basic arrangement and allowed for my SICKENING Future Disc Lt Opulence kicks to #DoTheRightThing. The topical gold elements from these PUMA sneakers went exceptionally well, styled alongside a studded jumbo clutch and a single strand neckpiece from Missibaba. If I really, truly, totally absolutely had to rank this look, it would be a tale synonymous to imperial dancing royals’ missions –this suggestion came via a new friendship made on the dance-floor.
