Times have change - no more gross t-shirts!! But this new philosophy doesn't overcome my extreme stinginess. I absolutely refuse spending R700 on a pair of black tights with a pink stripe on the left leg just because it has Nike written on it, but I do love Nike clothing so I'll go to their factory shop in the scout of some bargains.
For now, check out the usuals;
Mr Price has tank tops in a wide range of colours for just R29.99, sports bra's for R39.99 and I liked this top (above pic), perfect for cycling because of its shocking colour and its elasticated hem.

- Escape from the recession gloom and COLOUR up your wardrobe.
- Cover up your goodies - flaunting your figure with skimpy outfits is not hot.
- Show some skin by wearing elements of lace or sheer fabrics - in moderation!
- Summer = dresses dresses dresses!!
- One-shoulder tops and dresses-assymetry.
- Gladiator sandals and heels are still hot, only this year their added with embellishments like beads, studs, diamante or a fringe.
- NO more fake tan, or any tan!
I'm dedicating this week to finding these trends in stores.

The little Student Village Cafe where it all took place was crammed with students, all eager to get rid of the old and to get their hands on that vouchers which the Levi's team handed out with smiles on their faces, no questions asked. Generosity was in the air, so much so that one guy (that I know of) sponsored brand new jeans, with labels & all, and Levi's goodies were flying everywhere.
But here is the catch (I told you there would be); Levi's pretty much made sure one still spend R500 on a jean, and one voucher is only entitled to one jean. So, here I am with 7 vouchers, an empty closet and maybe enough $$ to afford one denim.
At least it was a successful effort - by 2pm, sponsored jeans totalled at 250. It was a fun day. I recommend attending the one at UCT Campus on Friday, 28 August if you can.

Helloooo Summer and welcome cheap clothes!
Goodbye R1000 coats, bring on the R39.99 tops.
If you haven't been to Mr Price lately - GO! They are currently on top of their game. I never leave empty handed an there's always something new when I return for more.
Affordable, disposable fashion, what can be better? Who wants to wear the same top for years anyway?
Here are a few of my favourites. I took the photos from Mr Price's catalog and from Elle magazine, Aug. 2009 issue (see, someone agrees with me).

In previous years, I bought ALDO shoes for a mere R100. This year, there was nothing I was interested in, again something that rarely happens. I even got a voucher at one stand that I didn't want to spend. Personally, the whole story didn't differ much from China Town.
It seemed like all of the big labels had pulled out, and those who were left (Guess and Soviet) sold stock that dated back to prehistoric times, it didn't really go at a good price either.
On the bright side, one stand (out of MANY) caught my attention - a lingerie stand called 'Luxy'. I was quite shy to enter at first but the staff immediately took me under their wings and made me forget about any insecurities.
They had a wide range of erotic, seductive and playful 'pakkies' like a Maid outfit or a Policewoman and then, on the other side, they had beautiful, classy lingerie as well, each to be paired with a great selection of stockings and suspenders.
They really have every size available, most of the garments are very stretchy that cover about 4 sizes.
Even if you have no one to show it off for, they say if you feel beautiful on the inside, you look beautiful on the outside, right? Goodbye gogo panties!
