There's going to be so much walking I do, in Paris.
I've been thinking of lugging all my @pumasouthafrica sneakers with me 馃槶... But there's not enough luggage space.

HELP!

What sneaker do you think I should bring? Stay tuned to see what else is in the bag, for #FrenchKlaas

There are still many things I've yet to figure out about my #FrenchKlaas trip commencing in 8 days 馃様 Its giving me anxiety.

I'm beginning to think this time around, I'm traveling with the age old wedding adage of: Something Old. Something New. Something Borrowed & Something Blue.

Searching through my jewelry box, and thinking about whether to bring a little @soul_design_jewellery and @for_lorne jewelry to Paris.

What do you think?

I mean, I am going to make more golden moments while in Paris, as I did in New York, so... Stay Tuned!
I'm still undecided about so much 馃槶

I'm so excited about my #FrenchKlaas trip.

Besides @parisfashionweek, the one Tourist Trap I am most elated & emphatic about visiting, is The Palace of Versailles 馃槉

Here's what has me stumped : WHAT ON EARTH AM I GOING TO WEAR?

I'm currently perusing my concise wardrobe, and coming up empty 馃槶

Any suggestions?

Right now I am thinking the only thing regal enough to step through all that opulence and history, is my gorgeous but worn-in @coast_and_koi slippers 馃槏
.
.
Their unique design, exquisite intricate material & recent runway & lookbook appreciation by @reemacra, makes them apropos for the occasion.
.
.
... Stay Tuned to figure out whether I've figured anything out!

Tasteful | Feminine | Luxe

By any unit of measurable global style , these skillful dreamers do not come out lacking.

I am so grateful to once again collaborate with this truly spectacular #proudlysouthafrican design house for @parisfashionweek - @errefashion 馃槉馃帀
.
.
Renowned for their inclusive & sophisticated designs, Carina & Natasha have brought accessible quality design to the fore, to many South Africans - and even to Her Serene Highness , South African-born Monaco Royal @hshprincesscharlene

Erre ranks in my Top 3 favorite looks from when I attended @nyfw last year - Their visionary trademark 'Myri Dress' bringing to any wearer, more than 6 other equally stylish and comfortable dress options during food, business, travel & fashion escapades ...truly remarkable!

Here are a few teasers of what's being packed in for #FrenchKlaas 馃槣

Stay tuned for more...

Not many people consider @donnagirlsa a fashion brand...probably, in part, because voluptuous woman have very rarely even been considered worthy of design industry targeting
.
.
馃檮Strange considering the global averaged size of women veers far from the sample sized svelte models selling fashion everywhere
.
.
I'd been one of the women who looked down on Donna as a true fashion store , even mused about its draw to people who shop there - like my mom.

Then I got an email from the Donna folk, challenging me with the opportunity to shop at their store for my trip to France.

I was already ballparking shapewear and sleepwear - so instinctively reductive of their fashion offerings.

All I have to say now, is that I'm still lacking in shapewear & sleepwear, but my suitcase is populated with a few more lovely, worthwhile Fashion Blogger Travel Essentials, by Donna.

Stay tuned to see what else I'm packing for #FrenchKlaas 馃槉

I have the utmost pleasure of once again collaborating with @hi_online_ to bring you closer to the Front Row of another one of the worlds most celebrated events: @parisfashionweek !
.
.
Fashion Week with Klaas, wouldn't be fashion week without the best gadgets, available at @hi_online_, to capture my picture-perfect (馃檮and sometimes imperfect) moments.
.
.
馃槉 So excited that @sony has sponsored me their gorgeous @sonyxperiaza flagship XZ2 smartphone, along with Sony Extra Bass On-Ear headphones.

New York had me: easily capturing @cindycrawford, recharging quickly, diligently tracking my @nyfw event schedule, selfie-snapping everywhere from Times Square to The Daily Show with @trevornoah studios, and even finding my heart in Brooklyn - all thanks to the last set of perfectly matched gear Hi Online offered up on their conveniant site.

Paris now comes with its own Hi-tech Sony Xperience 馃椉 and a whole bunch of storage help from the @sandisk SD card its now packing.

I cant wait to show you France with vibrant FHD shooting 馃摳

Think there's more I'm packing? ... Stay Tuned!

HATS OFF TO ME! 馃帺

6+ years of blogging, honing my skill-set, networking etc. and I've just recieved confirmation of what's often considered impossible in media circles: A bona-fide ticket confirmation to a scheduled @parisfashionweek runway show 馃檹馃檶
.
.
Last year I wanted to bring SA to @nyfw without too much careful curation ...but Paris deserves a less cavalier approach, so I chose these #proudlysouthafrican Travel Essentials with careful consideration for the originators of the fashion sensibility 'Haute Couture'
.
.
Lauded as one of the most interesting fashion design results of personal history and globalized innovation, @simonandmary is joining me to bask in the city of love, and be confidant to my French roads less traveled.

Wanna know what else made the cut for this trip?
Stay Tuned!

Last year, during New York Fashion Week, I was attending an event at Saks Fifth Avenue, when a woman tried to buy my neckpiece right off of me.

I was wearing @afrigarde

Obviously, I couldn't relent at the time (mostly because it was important to my look of the night), but I loved the significance of the gesture.

I loved how it reaffirmed the belief I have maintained, in the unique beauty & value of the #proudlysouthafrican pieces @mariameraai makes.

I am very excited to add Afrigarde pieces to my #frenchklaas luggage - for Paris Fashion Week this time!
Wanna know what else is being packed in, for the epic trip?
... Stay Tuned!

Comfort | Style | Innovation

There are many variables I've yet to configure, regarding my #FrenchKlaas trip to Paris, but at least I know what's in the bag so far: Puma Suede Bow Varsity sneakers 馃憻

@pumasouthafrica has joined me for another international Fashion Week - a year after New York Fashion Week馃槉

I miss you. I Miss You. I MISS YOU @lala_juelz !!! I miss you in the worst possible way brosef! 馃槶

I know you're flourishing where you are, but you are missed back here 馃槝

Bottles of vino have accumulated in astonishing numbers, in my place. They're also wallowing in misery waiting for someone to appreciate them.
