Rock a pretty dress, get to have fun, wear a crown! Um... yes please, sign me up. Forever New invited me to this year's Vodacom Durban July for a bit of dressing up splendour. I in turn invited Sabrina, (Fashion Nanny) client and friend along to enjoy the style spotting with me. It was so lovely to be able to go in store, riffle through the rails, try on outfits and then decide on what to wear - like our very own walk in wardrobe.
I opted for the beautifully constructed Lindsay Lace Prom Dress, paired with the Serena Single Breasted Coat in the colour "mulled wine" (mmmm sounds good). It was a very cold day so I was so glad to add a hint of stylish warmth to the dress. I don't do well in the cold and I don't like being a fashion victim either - so coat on it was. The item that made me the happiest was the crochet crown, which just so happened to be called the "Nadia Crown" - fashion fate. My leather Campo Marzio clutch was the perfect companion for stashing a few race day essentials. Sabrina wore the Lydia Prom Dress in Pink Whisp - that colour sounds almost edible. She styled her look with boots and a harder edge which made for a unique look. Overall we had a really wonderful time people watching, outfit spotting and deciding which horses we thought would win - based purely on their names (obviously) - pretty smart if you ask me.
Special thanks to the lovely Forever New team and to photographer Marlon Nero for snapping our outfits.
