What I… Nomaqhawe from Girl can Dress

I love how blogging and reading blogs can lead you to meet people from all over the world… Today I have an interview with Namaqhawe, a fashion blogger from a small town in the Free State! She loves fashion, reading, chocolate ice-cream and traveling – but mostly fashion!

She loves to create new and different outfits and share them on her blog,  Girl can Dress

Read on to find out more about her here…


What I…


I know that I don’t know everything and never will. Many of my friends will probably disagree because I usually have strong opinions but I have realised that life is full of learning and change. I know that holding onto the past for too long can bring unnecessary pain and that change is to be embraced.


I love comedy and to make people laugh. This probably explains why my favourite T.V. show is The Office and I’m always doing the goofiest things with my brother who I am very close to. I love the smells of peaches and oranges. If I could wear them as a perfume I would do so in a heartbeat just so I could enjoy it all day. I love myself, which has not been easy to do but with time and many lessons I’ve learnt to consider myself first.


I read anything that I can get my hands on whether it’s random trivia, a kids magazine or the Sunday Times. I sometimes become so absorbed into whatever that I’m reading that I lose track of time. Just the other day I was on ListVerse for 5 hours. My favourite author is Zadie Smith, she has changed the way I see the world in the best way.

World peace? Yes, but more realistically, I want to spend as much time with the people I love as possible. The people who you care about and care about you back are special because circumstances are not always guaranteed to turn out that way. So it’s important to cherish them, while you still have the chance. I also want success in what I do.




I love fashion so what I wear is usually a mix of trends and my old favourites. I usually change from one style to another. I like trends because they allow me to do that easily and inject some novelty into my wardrobe every now and again. My favourite clothes are the most comfortable. They are also the ones I’m able to match with almost anything like, my trusty Nike trainers. I also wear rings a lot they are my number one accessory.


I need understanding from the people around me because it seems like I’m not the easiest person to pin down. I think a little understanding goes a long way.

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Hi Kathryn! I adore these interviews because I get to discover blogs that I never saw before which is great!!

    There seems to be an error with the link to Girl Can Dress. It doesn’t direct me to her blog :/
