The collection has been inspired by all his favourite girls including Kelly Osborne and Pixie Geldhof. My fashion pick though is the stunning Iggy dress named after the singer Iggy Azalea.

This gorgeous fragrance has a sensual scent, best worn on sultry hot nights. It has hints of sweet toffee caramel and Indonesian patchouli but with a modern floral twist.
2. Marc Jacobs – Honey (100ml R1175)
Not only am I in love with the gorgeous packaging, it also has a delicious and alluring floral scent that you wont be able to resist! It has a hints of orange blossom and mingles with the nectar’s of honeysuckle and peach. Honey, vanilla, and smooth woods dry down to a warm, golden base.

5. Dolce & Gabbana – Pour Femme (100ml R1,215)
D&G is the ultimate in sophistication and sensuality and this scent doesn’t disappoint. It is smooth and sugary but with a modern contrast which is perfect for any woman on the go!
Underwear as outerwear has made a big comeback this season. This can sound a bit scary to most of us but you can definitely try this trend without showing too much skin. I found this stunning black lacy camisole at Woolworths in Canal Walk for a bargain price of R250. It is perfect to wear with some jeans and heels when going out or under a black blazer with a pretty pencil skirt for work.
Would you wear it?
Hi everyone! Its Carlinn here from Superficialgirls.com and today I wanted to share this gorgeous casual but chic look with you! Olivia Palermo is known as a style icon and I can see why, her outfits are always flawless. Sometimes less is more and she shows us how to do it without getting lost in the crowd.
Denim is huge for summer and I love how she mixes the black and blue colours which is usually a no-no and turns it into a yes definitely!
You can easily get her look and even put your own spin on it so that is suits your personality and body type.

There have been so many amazing new shops opening up in Canal Walk recently and one of my favourite ones is the pop up Kiehl’s store inside Edgars.
If you don’t know Kiehl’s, it’s a really great brand. They were founded in 1851 as an apothecary in New York’s East Village so they have been around for quite a while and their products reflect that.
With celebrity fans like Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow they must be doing something right and it’s about time Capetonians find out exactly what that is!
One of their best selling points is their “try before you buy” policy which means you can get samples before you commit. This is such an awesome idea and exactly how I fell in love with their epidermal re-texturizing micro-dermabrasion scrub.
Kiehl’s also uses high quality botanical extracts; they don’t test on animals and are very environmentally conscious.
The product I am most excited to try out next is the Midnight Recovery Concentrate, it promises to regenerate, repair and replenish for smoother healthier skin. It’s also one of their most popular products with fans worldwide that swear by it.
Have you tried Kiehl’s?
If you are in search of the perfect colorful handbag for summer you need to go to Charles & Keith in Canal Walk! They have definitely gotten it right this season with a whole range of vibrant colour blocking items. My favourite has to be the gorgeous pink, orange and yellow colour block handbag and it even has a matching wallet which I adore. They have the handbag in two other shades to suit everyone’s style.
We love the fact that the weather is heating up and its time to shop for dresses, skirts and shorts! Cotton On in Canal Walk has such a great range of denim cut offs and these faded ones are perfect to wear to the beach.
How will you be wearing your denim shorts this summer?
1. Stars & Stripes bikini from Foschini – R360 | 2. Ruched bikini from Mr Price – R140 | 3. Animal print bikini from Topshop – R579
If you are looking for the perfect bikini this summer then look no further. Canal Walk has you covered with loads of different styles, patterns and colours.
Don’t be afraid to have fun with your swimwear this season. Try out swimsuits with frills and fringing for a flirty feel and don’t be afraid to mix in some bright colours!
High waisted bikinis are also making a major fashion come back and it’s a great trend as it is both feminine and flattering.
Flag print swimwear will always look cute and American stars and stripes will be great this summer especially with the nautical look that is so fashionable at the moment.
