Chokers have been an ‘it’ trend this year and its only getting bigger. Whether its velvet, denim, lace, chain or bandana, I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t own at least one choker. For this reason I teamed up with fellow blogger and friend, Tetehumba of The Creative In Me and we made 4 different DIY chokers that will have you looking bang on trend effortlessly!

Day 5 of SAFW was all about the men and it was also the last day of fashion week. To continue with honouring the ‘no colour’ theme, I decided to wear a crisp white button down shirt that I got from Woolworths from the men’s section and wore it as a shirt dress. This is what I love about fashion lately, you are free to move across departments and styling has really become androgynous as gender barriers are being crossed.

So I started SA fashion week on day 2 and went to see the Gert Johan Coetzee show in the afternoon which was off-site at the Westcliff Hotel followed by Rubicon, Mantsho, Kottin and Twille, Morphe and T’niche in the evening.

I must admit that thrift markets have never really been my scene, or maybe I just haven’t cared much for them but last Saturday morning I dragged by sister along with me to visit one. Suffice it to say I was really taken by the whole event. I loved the selection of vintage themed stalls, each similar but incredibly different and the whole atmosphere was electric, nothing but friendly faces, good food and even better music.

Last week I linked up with an old friend of mine, Amo and we decided to do a shoot at +27 Café in Hatfield, Pretoria. This was the second time we do a shoot together but I think this time around we really understood each other better and our shooting styles. In terms of my outfit,

Lerato back at it with the Coats & Perspex!  This time around I’m lampshading. What’s lampshading you ask? Well initially I also had no idea what that meant but simply put it’s the term used to describe the oversized T-shirt paired with over-the-knee boots trend. Once you get that mental picture going the term lampshading starts making a little more sense.

There is no arguing that dusty pink is fast becoming a go-to colour and will have you looking bang on trend in an instant. I have to admit though that this was probably the first time I consciously wore something pink, deviating from my usual inclination to wear dark colours.
