During my recent twitter interview with 36boutiques.com they asked me to describe my personal sense of style. My answer was “effortless, body-aware and feminine” something I feel quite strongly about. I’ve often been that girl who LOVED the skin tight frock near the safety of the rail and then spent all evening sucking in her tummy or pulling down the skirt to cover her wares. It’s uncomfortable and let’s be serious, life is simply to short.
Fashion designer @DemetKaratas recently visit 2OV.fm and explained her ideas around dressing and designing for felines. I love that she uses only natural fabrics – silks of every finish and description and leathers so delicious you’d want to bathe in them. Besides being completely fabulous, she’s also particulalry generous. She graciously offered to dress me for the Expresso Show this morning AND cured me from the Rocking The Daisies Flu (yes, it’s an official disease).
So about a Demet Karats design: it’s comfortable and luxurious all at once. This dress was a dream to wear as the fabric fell elegantly and without any help from yours truly. It also looked a damn treat while cooking with Ewan in the Expresso kitchen.
Check out the Bacon and Egg Pie @Ewan_Strydom and I made this morning.
