ABOUT A BLOG / Her blog ( Tee­teeiswithme.com) is her cre­ative space where she shares in­sight about her world. ‘I used to over­think it. Now that I fo­cus more on just be­ing me, peo­ple re­spond more pos­i­tively.’ Though she loves visual medi­ums, writ­ing is her favourite way of shar­ing a story. ‘Hav­ing a blog means I can write about any­thing I feel like. My ideal reader is some­one who en­gages with the con­tent, tells me what they like and who takes some­thing away from what I post.’ FASH­ION FO­CUS / Thithi is a go-get­ter – in­spired by fash­ion trail­blaz­ers like Tom Ford and al­ways chas­ing set goals. ‘Go­ing out there and get­ting what you want is scary be­cause, if you don’t get it, you need to deal with it, pick your­self up and con­tinue try­ing.’ PER­SONAL STYLE / Com­fort is key for Thithi – a style she dubs ‘ca­sual glam­our’. From her G-Star Raw re­versible util­ity jacket and a dress she had made from dashiki fab­ric to her gold Nike Air Max 1 sneak­ers, Thithi’s favourite wardrobe items em­body ex­actly that. ‘I like to be com­fort­able and feel like my­self but I also re­ally like well-made, de­tailed and lux­u­ri­ous gar­ments that have a unique­ness to them.’ LOVE LO­CAL / Her pas­sion for unique style and de­sign is fu­elled by a love for lo­cal tal­ent. ‘I have this ob­ses­sion with ed­u­cat­ing peo­ple on shop­ping lo­cally and sup­port­ing our lo­cal in­dus­try be­cause it’s amaz­ing and cre­ative.’ She de­scribes lo­cal street style that ties into global trends as ‘worldly’ but says, ‘Of course, there are sub­tle nu­ances that make what South Africans are wear­ing on the street dif­fer­ent, but a Jo­han­nes­burger in New York or Berlin would fit in fine.’
