Hello, I’m Candice Bresler.

I am 33 years old and spend my days working as a Digital Editor for a publishing company. When I’m not at work, I spend my time eating, drinking, traveling and coveting pretty clothes. A few of my favourite things include red lipstick, wooded Chardonnay and sequins. If you’d like to get in touch, please email me here.

About Damsel in a Dress

Damsel in a Dress is the most recent step in Candice’s seven year blogging journey. A Cape Town-based lifestyle blog, Damsel in a Dress showcases personal style, luxury travel, wellness and food, striving to be an elegant representation of the finer things in life, all while remaining completely honest and relatable.

Apart from general lifestyle topics, Candice is particularly passionate about promoting local fashion and designers, and body positivity. She aims to encourage women to embrace and celebrate their bodies at every size. You can read two pieces on this here and here.

Want to work together?

Damsel in a Dress collaborates with brands and companies that share the same values and interests as the blog. Areas that are of particular interest to me include local fashion and designers, hotels in the greater Cape Town area and high-end restaurants.

This blog is predominantly read by female South Africans, aged between 25 and 34. Readers are mostly interested in travel, food, personal style and healthy living. You can view my latest social media stats here: TwitterFacebook and Instagram.
