The line will be available in 2012 from Australian store Target as well as on the stores wesbite
Dita is modelling the line inspired by the 1950′s and her love of underwear which displays high waisted panties, corsets and garters.
High waisted panties don’t appeal to me but seriously now, this women looks gorgeous in anything!
Karl Lagerfeld recreated the Chanel No.5 ad on the catwalk for Paris fashion week in 2005, the show displayed tweed two-pieces, chain strapped handbags, grey silk evening gowns embelisshed with lace and sparkly chiffon cocktail dresses, which naturally left everyone impressed at Lagerfeld’s endless talent.
2010…the see-through dress worn by Kate Middleton in a University fashion show in 2002 was said be worth up to £100,000 after the announcement of Middleton’s engagement to Prince William. The dress was reportedly what made William notice Kate, and as such, was deemed a piece of “royal history”. The dress later sold for £63,000 at auction.
2008, Cindy Crawford revealed the secret to her youthful looks. “There is no secret, not like finding the perfect jeans. It’s genetics – I was born with a good envelope – and lifestyle. When I moved to New York, when I was 20, I was not super-skinny, so I got into exercise and it has become part of my life. You do not find time to exercise, you make time, otherwise you will find millions of other things to0 do.”
I really had no idea in May of this year when I started my blog (my boyfriends idea by the way) how much joy this little world would bring me.
Besides giving me a platform to air my views, get writing practice and hopefully create a name for myself in the writing/magazine industry it has done so much more than that.
Firstly I have my blog followers - without them I am not sure this whole blogging thing would be as rewarding but they sure have made it worth my while and keep me going…. In a way it gives me confidence that I can and will make it in the writing world because there are some out there who may enjoy my writing style or my writing ideas.
Then obviously I have the frequent supporters, they come in the form of anybody willing to do interviews with me, commentors, and anyone who gives tips or advice to do with blogging.
Besides running my own blog, I have found many blogs that I love to read, through these blogs I have learnt many things I would never have anywhere else, I have gotten to know a few awesome people and have stayed inspired to keep my blog going to get to a point where it may actually become popular like some of the blogs I follow.
Basically in a very short amount of time my blog has become my happy place, anything that happens, anything I do, I wonder to myself if this is “blog worthy” and when I haven’t blogged for a few days I feel like something is missing. I literally have a routine in the mornings which consists of a blog post “on this day in fashion history” that I do while drinking coffee and before I do anything else. I have learnt new things about myself.
I hope to one day telling you all about my exciting life as a features writer for a well known magazine
Thanks to all of you who follow, comment, inspire and help – it is appreciated beyond words and I send you much love!
1: The red lips, black hair combination
2: The Pussycat Dolls workout DVD – it worked me in places I have never been worked before, and yes it is quite PCD music videoish but a good workout
3: Like the rest of Durban I am loving Wakaberry (frozen yoghurt with toppings) – but it must be strawberry flavour with a sour worm
4: My Gobii eReader, I am a total bookworm and have now converted from paperback to technology
5: Bright eyes – eyeshadow colours I wouldn’t normally use at all, mixing and matching, that sort of thing
6: Brochures – all the christmas ones are out now and soon I will be conquering the malls and doing my shopping, nice to see what’s on offer, where.
Those are my current obsessions, what are yours?
The ever so stylish Blake Lively was spotted wearing an electric blue Elie Saab number, not only is the outfit gorgeous but Blake looks amazing in it!

Kate Moss was the 2008 face of the Spring/Summer Longchamp ad campaign. The photos displayed Kate on a scaffholding in red and black looking gorgeous of course!
2006, Donatella Versace told of the difficulties of taking over from her brother Gianni after his death. “I got to my role right after a tragic event, the death of my brother, so I was very insecure for a while because my brother was a genius,” she said, “I was not ready for the role when that happened. I took a certain time to find my way. While I wanted to keep Gianni’s beliefs in fashion alive, I knew he would have wanted to keep changing if he was still alive,” she went on. “So I decided to follow my instinct, which was to approach fashion in a more feminine, softer way – being a woman designer.”
You have to get real with yourself and what you need to live your best life, and figure out how to move forward…
