What is your style story?

|By Elana| #ElanaShoes, Elana Style, Home

elanalores-1711We all have a style story. My first memory with clothes was when I asked my Mom what the correct pronunciation for “sandals” were, as I only knew the word in Afrikaans.  She practically dressed me. Until the day I got married.

I wore Moms gown, that we kept for nearly 43 years in a box in the top cupboard of our Bellville home.  There was a time that I shopped till I dropped, and now, being a little more wiser with shopping and even money, I choose what I buy and what I give away with #ElanaShoes.  I did this shoot for Woolworth’s ‘s Taste Magazine with my favourite designer KLUK CGDT.  Ifinal am showingthis off cause it’s pretty, and because I am curious…

What is your style story?  It doesn’t have to be about clothes. Perhaps it’s when you borrowed your big sisters clothes because you just didn’t have your own back then.  Some of us have been there.  x

Remember “Beyond 2000″? A robot that flies like a bird?! I filmed it…

|By Elana| Home

I host a few events a week as an MC.  Functions with really important people. I think the ones I enjoy the most are those that have an aspect of surprise. Events that include Science and Technology.

I opened the 19th Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control. They have a congress every 3 years and the last one was in Milan.

But before the night opened. These engineers from Festo launched this into the audience. Think of your little brothers remote control car or helicopter, but think bigger than that 90’s show we watched “ Beyond 2000”?  think some higher-grade science voodoo!!

Look what I filmed for you from backstage:
