Happy Mother’s Day | Style

Not only do I get my looks from her, but also my sense of style. I cannot count the number of fights my mother and I have had due to me stealing items of clothing from her wardrobe, which I’ve claimed to be mine. Anyone can relate?

Growing up has always been a fashionable experience for me. My grandmother from my mothers side use to be a seamstress. She designed thousands of wedding dresses for ladies on their special day, and in her spare time would make dresses for her daughters and her only granddaughter at the time, me!

In my teen years I resorted to mom’s closet. Finding the most exquisite pieces for myself, even if they were slightly too big for me, I was convinced I’d grow into it. My mom has a huge obsession with shoes, scarfs and hats. I guess that’s where my sense of style originated from.

Now that I’m older, I live with my grandmother (from my dads side). You guessed it. We share EVERYTHING! Clothes, shoes, bags, scarfs, you name it. With her experience in the retail industry fro over forty years, my gran knows the ins and outs of the trends over the years. And now that its coming back, she teaches me how to spice up my current looks with tips and tricks from past fashion looks.

The fashion world is such a creative space to be in. I love exploring things that I’m comfortable in, and also sometimes pushing the boundaries of my normal fashion mind.

I am so blessed to be featured on South African Indian Lifestyle television show, Mela today. So if you live in South Africa or the surrounding countries, please tune into SABC 3 today at 2pm to watch my Mother’s Day insert, chatting about my career, fashion and fashion muses – my mom’s & grandmom’s. Watch my Mela interview HERE.

Special thank you to Photography genius – Chelsea Kisten from Kist Photography. She photographed my Mom & Gran at our shoot for Mela (Images below). She does the most incredible new born photography, so do check out her work:

This pink skirt below is part of a suit which is 22 years old, almost as old as I am. It’s the perfect Winter/Summer item and I love the mid length look, which is totally on trend right now. Although it is made from wool, it doesn’t give off a heavy feel and looks so good paired with an off-soulder top.

Next, this dress has been pickled in my grans closet for some 30 odd years. The material has preserved its color and pattern over these years and still looks gorgeous. This look is perfect for a picnic day with the family or even a Sunday brunch with the girls. I’ve added a black belt to accentuate my waist line and have a better fit. Paired with the perfect accessories, you’re ready for a Summer’s Day out.

This skirt is very special to my gran. She bought it on her first trip in Mauritius in 1996, which makes it 21 years old. This pleated skirt trend is making waves again in the fashion industry, and this piece being slightly see-through with its cut-outs, make it one of my favorite pieces in my grans closet. I’ve styled this look with a black body suit and brown booties, belt and a hat. Like it?

The last look pictured here is my Mom’s. She wore this dress to my Christening. Now 23 years later, here I am wearing it. Such a timeless lace piece don’t you think?

Do you have any items of clothing that you’ve taken from your mom or gran and made it you’re own? Share it with me using the hashtag #IgotItFromMyMama and I will feature a few of my favorites on my Instagram story. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to say hello!
