Hello Skattie, it’s almost that time again, we’re just over a week away from the J&B Met, the superglam horseracing event which will be held at the Kenilworth racecourse in Cape Town on the 31st of January. This time around I’ve got a whole 20 tickets to giveaway, thanks to J&B, the peeps, who've been behind what is possibly my favourite shindig since 1977. No really, those who’ve been around this blog for a minute know the kinds of pics this event blesses us with. Can’t wait!
OH SKATTIE BUT HOW?????
So, those tickets. I have 10 General access tickets, and another 10 even fancier tickets for the Lifestyle Village, and here’s how you can get your hands on a pair for you and your best skattie. Put together an outfit that you think most stylishly and most skattielisciously expresses this year’s theme, “Made for the mix”. A bitjie background on the theme, it’s about combining two seemingly contrasting elements, and it’s inspired by J&B’s new J&B Urban Honey, which combines the whisky with sweet honey flavours. Oh, on that note, I also have a bottle of the good stuff to giveaway to 1 special skattie, who might not win a ticket, but shows serious effort. So, put together your outfit, using yours or a friend’s garments, show us how your outfit is MADE FOR THE MIX, shoot a pic, and mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date Tuesday 27th at 12h00 noon. Judging session to be published on the Wednesday 28th, where the winner will be announced.
AND THE JUDGES SKAT????
Most importantly, these fabulous people will be your judges, my fellow skattie co-editor, Fashion & Culture writer Sandiso Ngubane (@Sandiso_N), Super Stylist & Creative Consultant Bee Diamondhead (insta: @bee_diamondhead), Singer, Songwriter & Style Icon Award Winner Lindiwe Suttle (@lindiwesuttle). Trust me skat, if there is any group of people you want guiding your style choices, it’s this bunch, they live and breathe style. They eat it for breakfast and dinner. Just kidding, nobody eats dinner anymore. So quick do it now, enter skat, and let’s hang out together at the Met. Remember to put maximum effort so you can get the fancy tickets, so we can really hang together if you know what i mean.
