How Bomb!!

OH how can I forget baby!!! Posted this on my twitter/bbm/instagram/facebook all over the show, but my blog! Can you believe me?! lol. I was featured on one of my favorite fashion blogs The Fashion Bomb Daily  on Saturday as the Fashion Bombshell of the day. My friend Eric submitted the pics, I'd never put myself on the spot like that, no never not me :D.  Must say when he first shared Claire's tweet about the bombshell Zona from SA I wanted to strangle him! How could he, I mean all I see on that site is designer wear, perfectly done makeup, crisp photos the works ! how could I ever match that with my iPhone pics? hehehe but anyways excitement kicked in and fears vamoosed! I'm the second SA based babe to featured there so I'm chuffed. Bet if you follow my blog you will know that the pics used are oldish, but I guess Eric and Claire picked their faves so we can't argue with the greats lol :) From the experience Here a link (here)and a screenshot.

no new trends

Relaxed, laid-back look. Spiced up with color, tribal/aztec print, a bit androgyny, and of course, comfort, thanks to the wedge heels

Bonang is the new face of Revlon!

The gorgeous Bonang Matheba has been appointed as one of the faces for Revlon! The media darling joins the likes of Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde to represent the iconic makeup and beauty brand. B* told Morning Live this morning that she will start shooting commercials for the brand tomorrow. A gigantic billboard was unleashed in Joburg yesterday.  She wore this ravishing red number by Gert Johan-Coetzee at the official announcement last night.

Brands and I

Last night I had the most bizarre but one of the most enjoyable dreams. In it I was dressed in the most gorgeously embellished Balmain creation. No special occasion, just having tea with a friend. You can imagine my devastation when my alarm went off marking the kick-in of reality. Rather a painful slap back into reality. I had to drag myself up and adorn my not so high end clothes, bleh! The dream is still vivid in my head, if only it would come true. It got me thinking about the realities of the average fashion blogger from a developing (I don't want to say third world) country like South Africa. A similar piece to what I dreamed of costs R118 370(here).That's a price of a brand new descent car here. The piece is sold out! I've some fashion bloggers who wear Balmain, Balenciaga, Fendi, YSL to mention a few and wonder how they do it! Though I wouldn't call myself a fashion blogger, I know most of the pieces from these fashion power houses by season. I'll be honest I wish I could afford all them but until then, I'd rather stick to my NO brands rule. It's easy to fall in the trap and buy those "Lewis Vitton", Yves "Sant" Lauren  and "Guggi", did I mention the maroon bottoms sold as Christian Louboutins? Personally I think there's nothing wrong with loving fashion, but keeping to the stuff one can afford. after all it's really more about style and quality rather than the label. With that said I don't see anything with items inspired by the big guns, but not replica or fake. Below are some examples of these KIRFs(keeping it real fake). Maybe you've won the lottery and want to splurge! :)

The dress I dreamed of is similar to this :D. Too gorgeous 

The high gloss red sole is the original(according to the site)

Paris vs China 

this one's easy, the one on the left is the real mccoy. Lewis Vitton vs Louis Vuitton

can you spot the fake between these two Rolex time pieces?
