My Summer Lust-List and Outfit guide for the Modest Dresser 

After my INSANE Black Friday shopping spree, I’m about a R100 short of being completely broke – but of course, the pathetic state of my bank balance can’t stop me from lusting after some of the most gorgeous summer-friendly items that I’ve happened to come across on various online sites recently.

Blush + Gray {OOTD}

Hiii guys!

I’ve finally got down to blogging again and I must say, it feels really good! I’m back now and hopefully you guys can expect posts from me, either twice or thrice a week!
For my second blog post for this week, I thought I’d share with you guys one of my very recent and favorite OOTD’s that I wore to the beach – I know, a funnel neck isn’t really beach attire, but it works, so who really cares?

Grayscale {OOTD}

Hello there, my beautiful & fantastic readers!

I know I’ve been totally MIA for a while, but I’ve just been ridiculously busy and well, haven’t found the time to snap pics/write up new posts for the blog – I sincerely apologize!
Well, I’m now back into the blogging scene albeit not back into the daily blogging scene as I most probably will be posting just 3 or 4 times a week, God willing!

So, to start of the new blogging month of August (I know we’re half way through August, but whatevs), I thought I’d share this OOTD which features a gorgeous gray instant sheyla from Damasq ( currently sold out, but contact Damasq for more details)!

Need some inspiration for your Eid outfit?

Okay, I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking that we aren’t even in Ramadan yet but I’m already talking about Eid? Well, this year I’m trying to steer away from my very delayed shopping habits and decided to be more proactive when it comes to my eid shopping.
I’m gathering ideas and putting together potential outfits in my mind so that when I’m out shopping (or in bed, online shopping) I already know what key items to look out for. Continue reading

Monochromic Winter {OOTD}

Unlike the other parts of South Africa, cold & rainy wintery days are rare in Durban. Collectively, throughout the 3 Winter months, we probably experience about a week or 2 of true Winter.

To ensure that I’m prepared for our very short Winter, I always have a few go-to outfits on hand.
I tend to steer away from the usual jacket-jeans-tee combo and try to be more creative when it comes to my winter looks.
Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing with you guys my other winter looks but for today we’ll stick to my monochromic winter look. Continue reading

Mango to launch Ramadan 2015 Collection

Just before Ramadan last year, DKNY launched their Ramadan collection and I called it last year when I said that many retailers will be following in their footsteps – and Mango just did.

Mango’s Ramadan 2015 Collection is said to include a variety of gowns, dungarees, palazzo pants and tops, all of which will be available from the 8th of June which is just in time for Ramadan.
