Anisa Mpungwe for Mr Price launch

Anisa Mpungwe of Loin Cloth and Ashes has collaborated with Mr Price on a limited edition collection to be sold at Mr Price stores, at Mr Price prices. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch and preview of the collection at the Sandton city Mr Price. Having been a fan of Loin Cloth and Ashes for years, I had no doubt this collection would be beautiful- but what Anisa and Mr price presented was simple amazing. Every piece leaves you salivating, due to Anisa's amazing use of colour, print and cut. The undertones of yellow and wonderful geometric prints make the collection simply delightful. I could not resist getting myself a few pieces, my favourite being a two piece geo print suit which I can't wait to wear. I can guarantee the collection is going to sell out like hot cakes- so get to a participation Mr Price and make your selection. If you need anymore persuasion then know that a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to the Red Cap foundation.

Feeling Blue

I have worn this skirt several times before; I just haven't had anyone to take photos. In this look I'm wearing a Faeeza Khan full skirt in geometric print- paired with a soft denim shirt and pastel blue heels.

The Skip Fashion Exchange

We live in very interesting and exciting times. Your close circle of friends and sisters are not the only people from who's wardrobes you can shop and swap clothes. Think of The Skip Fashion Exchange as your extended circle of fabulously fashionable friends...who are looking to find a loving home for clothing they no longer wear but still love and and you can be that welcoming home.

Here is what you need to do; Go through your cupboard and select three items that you value, but you no longer fit into or wear.Wash, clean and mend these items so that they are in the best condition and bring them along to the Fashion Exchange.

These items will be evaluated and given a "value", you will then be able to swap for clothing items of similar value.

If this sounds like your kind of thing; visit the Skip website Here

I very much enjoyed wearing this look because 1: These Mango pants are just fabulous and everyone wants them, 2: They cost me just R300 at a Mango sale 3:I had the perfect green neckpiece to match them with. Sometimes everything just comes together beautifully.

Shopping online

Online shopping is as natural to me as putting on mascara, but I was reminded by a friend that many women still are not comfortable with this.   
Once you get over the hurdle that is the fear of giving your credit card details to a faceless stranger, and not knowing if you'll ever see your hard earned money again or receive the promised will love online shopping.

Don't get me wrong, there is a certain safety in being able to touch the garment, fit it and then decide if you really want to spend on it. But the thrill that comes with sitting on your bed wearing pyjamas with a glass of red in hand at 10 o'clock at night, browsing hundreds of dresses..and finally spotting that dress you just cannot live without...then after a few minutes of checkout receiving that wonderful email letting you know that your package is on route indescribable. The explosion of happiness you will feel when you finally receive your package after 1- 2 days of excitement build-up will convert you into an Online shopper.  

I have known for a long time that I do not do well when faced with rails upon rails of clothing..I end up getting frustrated and frankly confused. The beauty of the online store is that it feels like you are the only shopper at the mall, you have all the time to examine each garment and consider whether it will suit your current wardrobe....and the best part is there are no pesky shop assistants putting pressure on you to buy.. 

If you are worried about the fit, don't! You already know your perfect size and most sites will give you a size guide based on your exact measurements. If for some reason, the garment doesn't fit you can send it back for a refund or an exchange.

One more thing to love about online stores is that the products are generally cheaper because these stores have less fixed overheads such as mall rent, which are usually built into the garment price.
In the new age of the busy women who has very little time for shopping during trading hours, but is busy climbing the corporate ladder, building a business and raising a family; the world must change and adapt..those who refuse to will certainly be left behind.

Here are some of my favorite stores.

The Stylista launch and Luminance Pop up shop

Dear fabulous readers, I have been MIA for a little bit. I promise its been for a good course. I am learning to sew,make patterns and other general dress making skills. I have always wanted to make my own clothes and I am so excited to finally be learning. I'll update you on later posts on my progress.

For now I want to chat about the fabulous happenings of yesterday night. You may have heard about the new South African street style website called The Stylista. Last night The Stylista was being officially launched; fashionisitas everywhere can now register for an account and start sharing their style. I was one of the bloggers who were asked to be part of the The Stylista demo website, it is so exciting to now see the site fully fledged and working beautifully.  All the beautiful stylish people were at the opening together with some of my favorite bloggers.

After the Stylista launch, It was off to the Luminance pop up store in Hyde Park corner. Grazia SA was holding a readers shopping experience at the pop up store. Daniella went through the trends and the shoppers received a 20% discount on all shoes and selected clothing. Cocktails, macaroons, sushi and a brief love affair with a Alexander McQueen gold scull umbrella later I was ready to call it a Tuesday night.

What I wore: I wore my current favorite shirt from Jo Borkett; someone at work told me I look great in my Madiba exactly what I was going for..I paired the eeeerrrrh ..Madiba shirt with a high waist skirt and a jacket with shades of tweed and leather.
