MADE FOR THE MIX – J&B Met 2015

February 10th, 2015 Posted by News, Uncategorized No Comment yet

I know, I know!!! It’s been a while since I last posted and thought I would get back into the swing of things and chat about one of January’s highlights!

31st January 2015 saw some of SA’s A-list celebs and personalities come together for what proves to always be an exciting event – The J&B Met!

The J&B Met is one of the biggest horse racing events in the country and always deliver crazy, interesting and very creative fashion, not to mention the exhilarating atmosphere caused by the actual races themselves. To be honest, I have never been the biggest fan of the met because of the pressure of dressing up and greeting people who’s names I tend to forget. But nevertheless it is always a jol once you are actually there… Especially when you get treated to an awesome VIP experience.

This year’s theme, “Made For The Mix”, saw many people interpreting it in so many ways….  I opted for a classic TopMan South Africa look – compiling of a navy patterned shirt, and to add a bit of flair, I decided to go with khaki checked shorts and a sophisticated tie to match. It was way too hot to wear a jacket so I thought I would ‘mix’ it up this year ;-)…

The day was spent mingling with some of the industries best, as well as some of my fellow management team ‘family’ members from Actorvate Relations, who travelled down to CPT for the much-anticipated event.

But not to neglect the main reason we were all brought together – the actual main horse race itself, which was won by the brilliant 4-year-old Futura, earning him a second straight victory at the group I level. Sometimes I feel sad for the horses but something in me knows that when they win they feel the pride too!

A day out at the races, eating some delicious food, seeing some old friends (and making some new) and sipping on the J&B Honey was enjoyed by everyone, me included!

A special thanks to TopMan South Africa for dressing me.
