I Copied 3 Street Style Looks and Wore Them to Work!

Recently, I did a little test and copied 3 street styles. To understand why I needed to do this, I have to preface my post with a few questions: Show of hands, who here doesn’t feel beautiful, whether sometimes or all of the time? Who feels that they’re doing everything for everyone else and not for themselves? Whether simply complimenting someone else or always doing favours for others? Who among us no longer puts effort into their appearance because we’ve convinced yourself that it’s not important? Or that we don’t have time? Who has self-deprecating attitude? Following every compliment to yourself (if any!) with a “harmless” self dig. “This skirt on me is perfection except for this muffin top.” Who here uses words or looks for a clothing item that “hides, skims, minimises” their curves. We need to stop. Two Babes is first and foremost on self care and a major part of loving and caring for yourself, it not only start healthy habits but break toxic habits too.

Five Fabulous Friday Finds – #1

Friends! As I mentioned on Instagram earlier this morning, Kim and I are going to be introducing a new series to the blog, this is the new series by the way. We’ve realised (through our exploits in frugality) that we experience wonderful things every single week and not all of them are as a result of a purchase, we read, we eat, we meet, we experience… So every week, starting from today, we will be sharing five things that have truly sparked that joy during the course of the week.

One Tee. 5 Statements.

Statement tees have been trending for a while now and over at Two Babes we are LIVING for them! It’s a movement we’re not seeing the end of, thank goodness! It’s a way to say something about yourself or make a statement about your beliefs without saying a word. And because they’re so popular, everyone owns at least one. Or ten.  Because what’s not to love? For one, graphic t-shirts are incredibly versatile – they can be BFFs with basically anything in your wardrobe and can go from day to evening in a flash. It’s one of those comfy staples that works for every shape and are dirt cheap – starting from about R59.99 Gone are the days when the everyday t-shirt was just a cotton essential to laze about in over the weekend; nowadays you can get as much mileage out of it as a trusty Toyota Tazz. From catwalks to red carpets, black tie to boardroom, street style to street fair it’s a timeless piece works for winter or summer, casual or chic, and …

How to Host a Style Swap Party!

We’ve all had these thoughts:Why did I buy that?This doesn’t fit well.I’m over this dress. I’ve outgrown this style.I need new clothes but also, moneys.Or simply, I have nothing to wear, yet my closet is so full. Nikki and I have wanted to plan a Style Swap party for MONTHS! The thought of sipping cocktails or Pinot Noir while mulling over gorgeous fashion that is absolutely FREE to boot is my idea of heaven. We’re on day 20 of #NoBuyJune and it’s been a perfect indication of the holes in our wardrobes, and in our wallets! While decluttering can be a bit of a bore it needn’t be – a style swap party is a fun way to have an exciting girl’s night, purge old or unwanted items and add fabulous pieces to your wardrobe. As the saying goes, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure’ so while you may be tired of your tan ankle boots, someone may think they’re delish!
