There’s lots happening on the formal front this weekend. The Durban July, themed ‘Leader Of The Pack’ runs on Saturday afternoon and Cape Town will be hosting two major charity events on Saturday and Sunday night. If you’re heading to any of these formal events or hosting your own cocktail party, I have three easy rules; glam up, keep it simple and buy an item you’ll be able to wear again. We divas love style and watching our pockets!
