The Style Bible by Simon Rademan

THE STYLE BIBLE

- by Simon Rademan

 

"Dit is vir my 'n baie groot eer om aangewys te word as een van SA se besgeklede vroue vir 2008.

 

My styl is "dubbeld" - wanneer ek gemaklik aantrek, trek ek BAIE gemaklik aan ... en wanneer ek deftig aantrek, trek ek BAIE deftig aan, maar nooit sodat mense eers die uitrusting sien en dan vir my nie.  My gewig is gelukkig konstant, en ek voel my figuur is op sy beste wanneer ek nie te maer is nie.  Vrouens voel gereeld hulle moet maer wees, maar vergeet dat hulle op hulle beste lyk wanneer hulle net 'n gesonder gewig is.  My klere-smaak is uniek en ek probeer om nie te veel na ander mense te lyk en/of te kyk as ek aantrek nie.  Dit wat ek koop, laat maak of laat ontwerp, moet ek weer en weer en weer kan dra.  Dit moet anders kan lyk deur ander bykomstighede daarby te voeg.

 

My kosbaarste kledingstuk is 'n vintage kant rok wat my ouma na my ma-hulle se troue toe gedra het.  Dit is vir my BAIE kosbaar.

 

Raad aan ander:

  • Mense probeer te veel beiindruk met hulle klere en vergeet dat hulle menswees eintlik die indruk maak.

  • Moenie te lank vooruit beplan wat jy gaan aantrek nie.  Vriende sal my soms bel om te hoor wat ek aantrek na 'n geleentheid, dan se ek net ek het nog nie eers gedink nie.  Op die manier daag ek op met iets uniek en vars.Arina de Witt - Singer

  • Wees gemaklik met jou lyf en jou klere.  Almal kan nie, en hoef ook nie 'n no. 32 figuur te he nie. 'n Groter dame kan net so mooi lyk as iemand wat kleiner gebou is.

  • Moenie te gewaagd aantrek nie, en te hard probeer om sexy of sensueel te wees nie.  Klere is maar 'n "mindset".  Speel met illusies en moenie elke keer alles altyd wil wys nie.

  • Ek koop waarvan ek hou en waarin ek goed voel

English:  It is a great honour to be on this year's list of SA best dressed women for South Africa.

My style is "double" - when I dress for comfort, I am really comfortable, and when I dress smart, I look VERY smart.  Never so that people see the outfit I am wearing before they see me.   My weight is rather constant, I therefor feel best when I am not too thin.  Women often feel they must be slim, but seem to forget they could look their best when they are healthier.  My dress sense is unique and I try not to look like others, nor do I try to copy what others wear.  I buy, and have items made or designed that I can wear again.  I add accessories to get a new look.  My most precious item of clothing is a vintage lace gown that belonged to my grandmother, and that she wore to my mother's wedding.

Advice:

  • People try to impress with clothes and tend to forget their human side are what is important.

  • Do not plan to far ahead what you are going to wear.  Friends often phone to find out what I'll be wearing, before I even know.  This way I arrive with a fresh and unique look.

  • Be comfortable with your figure and your clothes.  Everyone cannot be a size 32.  larger ladies can look equally as beautiful.

  • Don't dress too challenging, or try to be too sexy or sensual.  Clothes should be a mindset.  Play with illusions and don't show everything all the time.

  • I buy what I like and what makes me feel good!
