Diva Autumn Fashion Haul


 Hi beautiful ladies!

So this past week in South Africa Autumn has shown its pretty face. The nights are getting colder, the wind is becoming chillier and the sky has been filled with grey puffy clouds. Cape Town especially has been chilly these past few days. With that being said, it is now in with the winter wardrobe and out with the summer one. I am a summer baby, so I always feel reluctant to let go of my pretty summer dresses and bright tops. A big bonus though when it comes to a change of season is that it's a great excuse to go clothes shopping. Big yay! So I trekked to the mall this past week to see what was in store. Boots, scarves and colourful leggings were all out on display in the shop windows. I found some really great winter pieces and ended up with a big fashion haul to spruce up my autumn/winter wardrobe. 


Now, I don't pretend to be a fashion blogger guru and I am definitely not one to follow trends for the sake of being trendy. I love to buy fashion pieces that look interesting, timeless and chic to me. I use fashion as just another way of expressing my personality. I love to dress up. You will never see me leaving the house in old sweat pants and a ragged t- shirt. I think it stems from my granny and watching her dress up when I was very young. My granny never left the house without looking 'together'. Whether it was a little bit of red lipstick, shiny shoes or a bold hat, my granny always looked her best when she left the house. I think she passed that characteristic on to my mom, my sister and me. We just can't leave the house without looking semi decent and with a little bit of lipstick on the lips. Hell, I even dress up when I'm just going to the post office! Ssh, let's keep this secret between us. *wink* ;-)


So I thought I would do a little look post on the blog to show you what I got and get you excited for Autumn/ Winter fashion. It's been a really long time since I did a fashion post and o.o.t.d on the blog. Hope you enjoy this one....


What I'm wearing:
-Leopard print top from Mr Price
-Black leggings from Pick n' Pay Clothing Store
- Black pixie boots from Woolworths
- Polka dot scarf from the Old Biscuit Mill market
- Star necklace from Mr Price

What's on my face:
- Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
-Naked 2 Palette
-Guerlain bronzer in Terracotta 00
-Clarins Instant Definition Mascara

These are just some of the items I purchased these past weeks.. Let me know what interesting fashion trends you are loving or have bought recently. Wishing you a beautiful week. 


Divalicious kisses.
