Women are digging deep into their closets this winter. I don’t now what it is, but lately I have witnessed the most atrocious outfits on the streets of Cape Town. I know Spring is around the corner, but that is no excuse for giving up on having style in the final winter moments– A Knee length, leather, burgundy jacket with matching knee length square toe boots in the same colour and then pairing it with a fire engine red hat and matching shirt dress – somehow just screams – I got dressed in the dark and thought this might be a good idea – after all I haven’t worn since 1972???
Another horror: Red velvet slip on boots with matching suede red pants and a brown jacket – yuk – yuk – yuk. Then there is the death by denim craze that seems to be sweeping the office! Scarves have become too big and scruffy or too thin and tablecloth like. Yet some how the men remain chic and dashing…
This weekend is going to be very challenging. I have to put on a smiling face and radiate happiness. I have to watch my words and duck and dive to avoid any hard hitting questions. It is family and they must not worry about me!
I need a drink!
