All Class

One of the most luxurious and down right sexiest cars I’ve had the pleasure of driving lately is the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Class. With a tagline like ‘Kiss anonymity goodbye’, you know you’re definitely going to be doing just that with this beauty.

All class, all luxury and all-round amazing ride, the new CLS Class is as beautiful to drive as it is to look at and sit in. With everything you’d expect from Mercedes-Benz, it doesn’t fall short of your expectations. Well, not mine anyway.

Technicality wise you can grab the specs here. You know how I roll with these auto features and for me it’s all about imagery, the fashion elements of the feature and my genuine thoughts on the CLS. Which, if I had to break it down – would go like this…

As you can see from the images, it’s a beautiful car. Elegantly designed and fully optioned with a sporty soul. This four-door, two-seater coupé features all the luxuries, creature comforts and space perfect for those seeking style, substance something sporty. It’s also economical, so you don’t have to stress about driving long distances and topping up every few days. It has the right amount of grunt and the option for manual gear change with its flappy paddle gears (my favourite), a sleek leather interior with ample space and a killer sound system.

I really don’t need to go on about it much more, as I’m sure you are all familiar with these sort of whips. One last thing I’ll add is if you want something sleek, classy, sporty and luxurious at a mid to high end value, then this is for you.

Special thanks to Mercedes-Benz.

Less is More

I cringe at every thought of winter – the unbearably cold weather, wind and rain. The shorter days, dark skies and the overall seemingly endless season. Ugh.

Then, I think about the things that I do like about it and often help me get through. Layers, thick luscious fabrics, leather aplenty, wool and snuggling in a warm bed knowing it’s minus a million degrees outside.

This look welcomes the approaching cold weather – muted shades and layers of accessories such as a scarf and beanie. Winter clothing is generally associated with higher price tags, but this look I pulled together is layered, luxe and less expensive than you think. All for under $300. Say whaaa? Where else, but Target.

Gok is back doing his thing with Target, with the retailer celebrating the new, bigger and better autumn/winter collection for women, men and children as recently seen at their runway show at this year’s VAFF held on Sunday. It was a celebration of all shapes, sizes, colour, age and gender while showcasing some of the well curated looks currently on offer. Everything was on point – Target really took it up another notch.

Another surprise was their latest designer collaboration with Dannii Minogue, whose petites collection was something definitely worth looking forward to as winter sets in.

So if you’re in dire need of a winter wardrobe update without breaking the bank, head to Target because here’s proof that less is definitely more!

Big shout out to Target ;)

Baddest

Baddest as in the best. One of my favourite and most fun to style and rock is this textured and layered look from my favourite denim label, Levi’s.

Pretty much Levi’s head to toe (minus some add-ons), I wanted something a little ghetto, a little chic, a little street but pure pure bad – meaning good.

My first bandana (I know, right?) and camo print (haven’t worn since the late 90s), my main goal was to wear these two styles, and together was even better! You know when you have something in mind you’ve been wanting try for a very long time but for some reason just never had the chance or time? Well, I finally did it. The jacket is a men’s, wearing the XL for a completely oversized look, just makes the outfit and have already found a million ways to wear. While at the Levi’s store the other day it was literally the first thing that caught my eye.

You folks need to check out the latest from Levi’s, I think it’s their strongest collection yet with some of the baddest denims and street gear you can find!
