JOIN Skattie, what are you wearing?'s FACEBOOK FRIENDS

Saturday, September 3, 2011


Firstly I must give a big thanks and props to the people at Marie Claire for putting together such an awesome evening. It was absolutely fucking fantastic skattie. And at the risk of sounding like i am kissing ass i must also commend Aspasia Karras, Sharon Becker and their team for really transforming the image of the Marie Claire publication locally. I think anyone who keeps up with the progress (and sometimes regress) of magazines locally will agree and give props. And once i met them understood why. I don't know Aspasia and Sharon very well at all, but i know some of the company they keep much better, and they are people i think of as progressive , people who are discovering previously unidentified gaps in the South African cultural landscape, and if people can be judged by the company they keep then it is no surprise that AK and SB are also interesting people doing some very interesting things on the SA fashion landscape.

Of course Marie Claire did just present me with an award so you'd be forgiven for thinking that i'm merely singing for my dinner. If i was reading someone else's post and it read like this i'd probably think the exact same, but whatever.

I had an awesome  night and one particularly groupie moment. I'm a big fan of Anele (the 3 pics at the top) the deejay from 5fm and she was the MC for the night, i love the woman. So i lost all self-control and i went stalker on her for a part of the night, eventually hitting twitter to declare my undying adoration. Such a graceful one though that one, so she was cool about it, and it was kind of nice to get in touch with my inner groupie, i'm such a sucker for really nice people with a great sense of humour. Other than that we partied well into the night and i got to hang out with some old friends and some new ones. It's been a great week so far, the only downer was that i missed the Bryan Boy do in CT because i had to be at work for a key meeting all of Friday. Sad about that, looked like so much fun on twitter.
