The It List: December '09

Lovely bubbly
Spend your Saturday afternoon in style at the House of Krone Summer Elegance Celebration on 12th. The event takes place at their Tulbagh cellars and festivities include a Kobus Dippenaar fashion show and sunset concert by Sterling EQ, South Africa's hottest all girl instrumental group. You'll also get to dine on sushi prepared by Wasabi, yummy wraps from Osuma as well as strawberries and cream, nougat, olives, oysters, Turkish delight and more – all washed down with House of Krone MCC bubbly! Tickets cost R100, but because they're limited, booking is essential. For more information, contact Luke Krone on or visit    

Love racer-back tops a la Posh, but hate having to find fancy pants bras that promise to twist every which way so you can wear them? Take a look at Bravo clips, the simplest, cleverest solution at Essentially, it's a little clip that pulls the straps of your favourite bra into the middle of your back, blitzing the need for you to run out and buy a new one. (Also, because it lifts your straps a little tighter, it immediately creates a nice 'plunge'-effect with your cleavage. Nice...) The best bit of all? They only cost R40 for a set of three!   

A killer concert
Right now, the hottest ticket in town is The Killers Who Can You Trust concert. They kick off at the Coca Cola Dome in Jozi on the 3rd, (a new date that's just been added due to the popularity of their show) and play there again on the 4th. Then, on the 6th, they move on down to the Kaap to finish up at the Val De Vie Wine and Polo Estate in Paarl. Tickets range between R294 and R526, but are selling out faster than you can wail "but I'm Mr Brightside", so get thee to fast!      

They're "David's", dahling...
Shoe fans, take note: as of this month, selected Luella stores will be stocking a limited edition line of heels designed by the 'oh-so hot right now' David Tlale. The Luella David Tlale Collection features just six shoes, but promises to have a little "something something" for everyone. (The range includes a sexy cage-style leather platform as well as an adorable-looking bejewelled satin peep-toe...). Look out for these once off wonders in just twelve Luella stores around the country with prices ranging from R999 to R1599. There are also two leather-crafted handbags that compliment the collection priced at R1999 and R2299). To find locate your nearest stockist, call (021) 937 5987.

More music
It looks like December's the month for music. If you're an Ooskaapse muso, you'll be thrilled to know you've got both the Knysna Rocks and Kenton Music Festival to look forward to.
The Knysna Rocks Festival is essentially one big concert. It goes down on the 28th and tickets cost between R130 and R220 depending on where you sit. The line up includes Prime Circle, Just Jinjer and Evolver. Pop on over to to nab a ticket.
The Kenton Music Festival takes place on a farm on the 31st. Just a few of its big name entertainers include Gang of Instrumentalists, Casette, Ashtray Electric and again, Just Jinger. General admission is R170 while a VIP ticket will set you back R270. For more info and a list of ticket vendors, visit     

Cool cocktails
Camps Bay chicsters – remember Baraza? It's now been transformed into Sapphire, the strip's only "specialist cocktail bar". Aside from sweet-looking sunsets, punters can indulge in delicious drinks like the mint, lemon and lime addled Sapphire Paradise or a yummy (rummy) Green Banana Colada. They also have a fab food menu that includes fresh seafood and mezze & cheese platters. However, if you don't find anything on it that floats your boat, you can simply order from le infamous Blues next door. As far as entertainment goes, they have Tom-Foolery Tuesday's (a rocking comedy night) and plan to host some of the Cape Town's hottest DJ's (think El Gordo, James Mack and Ducking Fogshow) every Sunday. See you there kids!
