SAVE THE DATE: The WKND Social

  I missed last months edition of The WKND Social’smonthly brunch and I didnt want to miss this one…  and as per usual the tickets for the brunch sold out quicker than you could ask “what’s the WKND social”… cause if you dont know by know *side-eye* #nuffsaid lol!     This is edition marks the last shindig for the season, bidding farewell to summer with their final rooftop picnic & dayparty that will not move to the Puma Social Club as it normally does, but instead stay at the same venue for us to dance the evening away whilst the sun sets and the stars come out. Of course I will give feedback on the event, so check back on monday to see all that was worn & wonderful at #theWKNDsocial   Check out the post from the last one i went to here.

All Gold Everything!

As you all know, what we see in stores is driven by what is seen coming down those famous runway shows that happen twice a year, featuring some of the worlds oldest and most loved runway brands. Trends this winter have gone really dark (you know in that gothic, rocker type way), and black is coming through quite strongly in leather, velvet, denim, and all. But i thing black with gold detailing is key! There’s a certain kind of fierceness with the combination of black and gold, I think it’s the stunning contrast, the way the gold stands out even more against the black; and although the trend has more of a punk rocker inspiration this season, I find if done right, this combination can be quite chic. So when it comes to accenting your black outfit, try work in a touch [or better yet a chunk] of gold for a lovely update… be it studs, skulls, spikes, sequins, just about any gold sparkly detail will do.
