I couldn’t help being a rebel at this year’s Pink Polo. The dress code stated – “Authentic Polo”, “Think Kate Middleton” and, so the closest I could get was this Raani in Colonial Chic. So, I had me my “It's time to take down the drapes and make a new dress” Scarlet O’Hara in Gone with the Wind moment except, nothing was spared in fashioning my look – the table cloth, curtains and even the rug stood no chance! I intentionally left out the hint of Pink because there was plenty precious pink pretty much everywhere on everyone. Set in the picturesque winelands, the Pink Polo event is definitely posh, with a purpose minus being pretentious. It’s the perfect way to spend a glorious day under the African sun, a fabulous fusion of fantastic fashion, fun and function. The event seeks to raise breast cancer awareness, celebrates the inspiring stories of survivors and proceeds of ticket sales go to a worthy cause … cheers to that!
