Valentine’s Day, red is probably the universal color of luv! Theres nothing better or more classic than a bouquet of red roses to your loved one on Valentine’s Day. But then when it cones to V.day fashion, although red is the universal colour, there really is no one size fits all way to do it. I just really think it all depends on your plans for the day. I’ve put together a few of my favourite looks Valentine's Day from my line for tonikhumalo.com. Hopefully give you some inspiration. All these dresses are available from my on-line store tonikhumalo.com with free delivery throughout the South Africa.
Resolutions. Personally, for starters, I would like to be more appreciative and grateful for all my blessings and that includes my loved ones. I am totally for New Year Resolutions. as a matter of fact, I make them every year. But let me say, unless you have a plan and stick to it, you really are just setting yourself up for disappointment. Oh well, thats just my view...My words of wisdom. So in short, Cheers! to a productive year ahead. Pray..pray...pray...have a plan, be disciplined and put in the work.
I think by now, any self respecting Style Addict clearly agrees that jumpsuits/Catsuits are the world's favourite onesies. Which is no surprise, I mean they are extremely versatile, easy to accessories and most importantly...they hug all the right curves on your body. Which means women of all shapes and sizes are slaying in them in all sorts of sexy options and slaying it good.
I was never a jumpsuit girl..C'mon I'm a girly girl..all about pretty dresses . Until I was inspired to design one for my line TONI! . And it's been a luv ever since .And since then, I've added a few more to my collection. I've put together a small compilation from my line of our favorite available onesies and they come in all sizes S,M,L & XL . Hope you find something that tingles your curves .
Love Toni Khumalo
When all you crave for is simple but sophisticated elegance, and outfit that subtly screams :"confidence" .the little white dress is the way to go! Simplicity in this dress says much without many words. Elegance doesn't need to be clustered, wear it up or wear it down.

A while ago I got presented with an amazing opportunity to dress one of the biggest Female Hip Hop artists to come out of South Africa, the Beautiful FiFi Cooper for her very first Red Carpet , at the Metro Awards 15 2016. You can imagine my excitement. She has the sickest petite body and even way prettier in person. My team and I wasted no time going to work and came up with this burgundy twinset with lace sleeves , the colour burgundy chosen by FiFi Cooper herself (she has great taste) and a pair of red sequence shorts which she wore for her after party performance . @Fifocooper_San Thank you so much for the opportunity and trusting us with this truly grateful, and again a Big Congratulations to FIFI COOPER for winning three Metro Awards ,you looked Beautiful.Luv Toni Khumalo

Victorian Falls, one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the World, and yes, it is everything they say it is. The sight of it is simply breath taking, a return to nature. I stayed at The Kingdom Hotel, everything thing about this Hotel is done so beautifully, perfection, absolutely inspiring beauty ...and I mean that. The decor, the food, service & pool is just as impressive.
While the Victorian falls are the main attraction, there’s also a wide variety of activities. Such as Helicopter flights that give you spectacular panoramic views, beautiful relaxing cruises whereby you can enjoy delicious snaks & cocktails at sunset and the views, not to forget the Hippos that peak through from the water every now and then, river rafting trips, guided Safari walks, cliffs & bridges whereby you can take part in bungee jumping or better yet. You also have the option of seeing wild animals upclose and then ofcause my Fav, SHOPPING..Hey, I’m a girl Okay anyway, back to the business of the day.
Saturday off to the studio to do some work with my sisters Khosi & Michelle #Theterribletriplets wearing my All-I-Want-is-Happiness kinda skirt from our collection TONI! Clothing.
Comfortable,flirty but still classy and has. a thousand ways you can wear it. I can already hear you saying':Yeah right, what decent fashion forward lady would want to wear the same skirt a thousand times! Well, there are a different ways you can rock this skirt and still looking like you just wore it for the first time!
Black heels and voila!
The black &white goes well with any colour. You can wear any colour jacket and still look amazing! Don't believe me? Try it for yourself. But remember. ..whichever way you wear it...have fun and just be Happy.
Hey Luvies, a bit late I know but never the less, I hope all of you had and amazing Christmas & New Year and enjoyed time with family and all your loved ones, like you should of cause. As for me, I obviously spent time with family and ja, we always have the best time with my sisters joking around about everything. Crazy as they are, I really I cannot see myself spending the holidays away from them or maybe I’m hooked to the craziness. I’m stuck with them after all...and Yes, I know we are a bit dressy but ja that’s my family, we love to dress up. Best part, we have fun with it.
Beautiful bright day , so without a doubt, one of those days that you just feel extra happy , all is well and you just want to simply put on a simple but equally beautiful happy girly dress and just be. And this simple orange dress just did the trick for me..yep the day , which was obviously welcoming in Spring/Summer ( well, if you are in South Africa) obviously made me extra happy ( because I hate winter....and yes people, despite what you might have heard, we do have winter here in Africa...and I HATE IT...SH*T is COLD) the dress was the icing on the cake.....I was walking on Sunshine. This was me on my way out to Newscafe in Woodmead to get lunch with my lil’Bro so thought I would abuse him a bit for some pics, something which I do on an regular basis...well in this instance guess I abused him the trees etc....I was in a mood...a good one.

B.Day Party we had for my lil nephew a little bit ago, he was turning five (5). As always, I was incharge of the cake or rather, I put myself incharge. I got him one of those Non-blow out candles and Oh the little guy stood there blowing out those candles till he was blue in the face. My little niece 'Cup Cake' also five (5), stepped in to help him blow out the candles..he he he I must say, it was actually funny to watch. And as always, it was great hanging out with my sisters and the rest of our family.
Luv Toni K!
Lil Sis' Birthday Party..well it was actually for both my lil Sis and lil Brother who's actual the last born of my siblings, but my lil Sis who's been so mad since the day he was born because she feels that he only came on this earth to steal her Spotlite in life, made the B.Day all about her and so we all played along and so did he..all in good fun and laughter ofcause. My middle sister was forcibly put incharge of organizing thing whole extravaganza, hence she's looking so pissed, in this pic. Considering the fact that my lil Sis is a lot to handle, trust me by the time this actually happened she had had enough. The theme, decided on by my lil Sis ofcause, was 'ALL BLACK" eerthing. Hence you see us stunting in black. I must say, I always have the best time when I hangout with my sisters and this was no different...
Luv Toni K
Spring is finally approaching here in South Africa, and so we come out of the woods, I'm especially referring to myself...ha ha ha. We are living in the last days of winter Ahg but it's warm enough though for us to start wearing summer clothes, hence my white shorts. The weather was too beautiful on this day, I simply couldn't resist.

Hey Lovies, I know it’s been ages, hope you've all been good. Gosh it’s been crazy and interesting for me, each day I’m made aware of just how unpredictable life is and that God is in charge of it all. Sometimes it feels like I've been on the crazies roller-coaster, and I've been on this roller-coaster for months now, since last year to be exact, but something tells me that the crazy ride is almost over , the end is near and big changes are coming.
Anyway, enough about my rumbles, I've just launched a new Online store website http://shop.toni.clothing so please do visit our store, my crop top twin set outfit is from my line Miss Toni Collection! and its also available at the store. Hope u like.
OK so far 2014 for me is off to a great start. But just to reminisce about 2013, I'd say it was one of my best years, but also a year of great revelations and confusion, to the point whereby it pretty much changed the course of my life in a way that I had no control over. But in a good way and I'm loving it, just that it was so unexpected. I had always believed things to be a certain way or that they will happen a certain way and just mid 2013 something changed and I was reminded that I'm not in charge, God is.
Hi my Lovies hope u all had great celebrations to kick start off the new year. And I hope 2014 will be the year you realise all your goals and all your dreams come true. Those of us who belive in making new years reolutions, hope we all stick to them. Me personally, I'm staring the year with a trip to the US, leaving in about 3 hours time. Will tell you all about it when I get back. Stay sweet...Luv...Toni
Hallo my Angels, how I've missed u all. Hope everyone had a very Merry Merry Merry Christmas with all your loved ones. This was my look on Christmas day, which I spent with my family. We all went to my sisters place and her inlaws were there as well, so we pretty much had ourselves a good old heart warming Chritmas Party, loved it to bits.
It was my birthday this past 23 of June. The day was beautiful, a bit cold since, well, it is winter here in South Africa my friends, yes we are freezing here. After starting my day with a surprise delivery of flowers, chocolates and champagne in the morning, I enjoyed my breakfast by the poolside (cold as it was, the day was just too beautiful to resist) and went off to do a little birthday shoe shopping (you gatta get new shoes for your birthday) and got me a gorgeous pair of boots (I’ll do a post them boots one of these days). See I love birthdays, because I love free stuff ( ha ha ha yep, I said it). Actually, I think almost everybody does, and birthdays are just one of those very rare days when people in your life give you free stuff and spend money on you all because you were born on that day. So, make it a point to milk the day, after all it only comes once a year..ha ha but dont qoute me on that.
More pics of my vacation in Asia. This was my first day in Bangkok-Thailand and I gosh as I had come to expect by now, it was hottt. But I'd been in Asia for a few days now so I was slowly but surely starting to get used to the weather, and even enjoying it at times . It was my first day and first time in Thailand though so as you can imagine, I wanted to go everywhere all at once.
This is me on my last vacation in Asia. I went to a total of 3 countries, the most ‘care free’ fun I’ve had in a long long time. I was long overdue for a holiday. It was hot and humid which was a bit overwhelming at times, but again another part of me loved the weather because it meant that dressing up was very effortless, which is what you want when on holiday, u just throw on something easy and nobody can like at u like ...otherwise.
Hallo Lovies, hope you are all great. I know this post is way overdue, my work has kept me crazy busy and as if that wasn’t enough, my sister was also getting married this past weekend so I was busy with that for the past few weeks as well, but the week of the weeding was craziest to the point that some nights I was only getting just 3 hours of sleep but the last straw came when I only got an hour’s sleep, I was clearly abused.The wedding was a 3 day celebration...Huh! the whole trauma got me thinking that maybe eloping is the way to go ...ha ha ha , don’t listen to me , I’m just rumbling on...Oh but it was beautiful, joyous, everybody was just amazed and had an amazing time, being with family is always just so great. I tell you I would do it all over again.
Happy Valentine’s Loveeis hope all the girls got chocolates and roses, sorry but I'm a sucker. I received a beautiful cute bouquet of roses this morning, talk about a great start to my day. Now I’m off to a lunch date with my best friend. I gave myself a day off today, I think it’s good to stop and smell the roses every now and then, live a little and V-day is just the perfect excuse for me. So this print dress is my outfit, there’s something very sweet about this dress, I feel so girly pretty and yet very trendy at the same time, maybe it’s the pink. I actually designed this dress for my clothing line ‘Miss Toni’ Collection and you can purchase it here.
I don’t wear this green skirt a lot but it has a special place in my heart, I would give away a few pairs of my heels before I gave it up, including this top. There two have a very vintage like look to them and I’m not really vintage person, it’s very very very seldom that I do a vintage look.
I spent this past Saturday with my family, that is my Mum, brother, sister and nephew, only my middle sister was missing, her absence was felt, mainly because she’s such an entertainer (every family has one), but we had a great time regardless. We spent the day doing some shopping and then finished off with a light lunch. U know if there’s anyone who can outshop me (if there is such a term) it’s my sister. I tell u, this woman is like an idiot when she gets to a shopping mall. She pretty much buys everything she lays her eyes on. One would swear that she’s experiencing shopping for the very first time in her life. Honestly speaking, most of the staff in her closet still has price tags many years down the line. Anyway, this is what I wore.
My 2nd day still on the Shosholoza Myl Luxury train. 6:30 I wake up to a moving train, I love it. Look out my window, it’s raining, I’m In love. A few minutes later, a knock on the door, its room service by one of the friendly warm staff members bringing me coffee in bed, its perfect.
Some tea while I wait for my breakfast (I didn’t want to overdo it with the caffeine). Sipping on my tea while peacefully looking out my window at the peaceful rain and beautiful sites and write down some notes. Amazingly so, breakfast was as if I’d actually booked into an actual hotel, choices of all sorts..Yum!
So a few weeks ago I did a post about me spending my birthday on beach in Cape Town tilled, I’m in love. I think I did mention that instead of the usual flying to Cape Town, this time I took a luxury train. So I took the Shosoloza Myl Premier Classe Luxy train . I was very sceptic because , I didn't know what to expect, but, since this one is not your average train but a luxury train rather, I thought hey, why not do something different, so I went for it.
I took a Luxury Train down to Capetown Camps bay last weekend for my Birthday and this is some of what I did during the day. I've been working hard and just wanted something to really relax me , it was my birthday after all and water has that relaxing effect on me. I dont know, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I'm a cancerian.
Apparently we have a special realationship with water ( or the blue of the water..something like that) and the moon. But water does it for me.And what better place than Capetown hey. For those living in SA I'm sure you know about Capetown's beauty and for those of you elsewhere..well,now you know. Capetown is Beauuuuuuuuuutiful. I've been there a million times but I still melt everytime I go there.
