What I… Ritza & Elrico from LUXO

Not many of us will ever stand a chance of being named on the “Best Dressed” list at any event, let alone at the L’Ormarins Queens Plate – THE Horse-Racing event of the year! However this weeks’ blogger interviewees can lay claim to the title for 2013! The bloggers behind LUXO, Elrico and Ritza are a fashion power couple to be reckoned with! Elrico is a full-time blogger and stylist who styled his perfectly petite partner, Ritza, for the win mentioned above. Recently he has also been styling Jeannie D for Top Billing!

Here Ritza & Elrico share some insights into their lives behind the blog…

What I know…is that life is so extremely short and that you must show the people you care about everyday what they mean to you, even if it is in the smallest way.
What I know…is that everything that happens, happens for a reason. I always expect the worst,but everytime a door has closed on me before, one that is much better than I could ever image opened.

What I love…is fashion (shoes in particular!) – I live for fashion and there is nothing like a good shopping spree to make me feel super excited and happy.
What I love….clothes – I love looking for new clothes to style people in and I get so excited when I see amazing fashion in the shops!


What I read….just like every girl I love my love stories, but lately I love reading thrillers and suspense books.
What I read…I don’t read books (I have to admit) but I love my fashion mags like Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar

What I want….is amazing Christian Louboutin Spiked heels…I have an absolute obsession with them and here in SA they are so rare and expensive! and of course I want world peace…wink wink.
What I want…is to see more international brands in our fashion industry here in SA. I would love brands like Dolce and Gabbana and Balmain to come to our country as they are some of my favourite designers.


What I wear….is anything Elrico sets out for me to wear! I am a very lucky girl and Elrico dresses me even for school…my clothes are always set out perfectly from head to toe and I just have to put them on and rock it LOL!
What I wear….I love experimenting when it comes to menswear and my personal style is very European inspired. I love wearing leather jackets, sneakers and cool t-shirts. That is my most comfortable outfit!

What I need…I am a very blessed and fortunate girl as I have amazing people in my life and personally I think what I need is to stop stressing about the small stuff. I am a perfectionist in everything I do and this causes me to overthink everything I do. I think I need to take a breath and just enjoy every moment of life.
What I need…is a holiday….I never thought I’d say this but sometimes Cape Town can get to small for me and I think I need a breakaway to Ritza’s parents in the countryside on their beautiful villa.

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!
