#mrponline

Twitter was abuzz with excitement last week, as Mr Price launched their online store, at their Durban Head Office. Me, sitting in my cold, totally-unrelated-to-fashion-office, I was so jealous. I'd have to wait days to get a taste of the online dream! But alas, today has arrived - the day Mr Price Online is live. As if I'd forgotten, I was reminded by a pretty package this morning. 






The box was packed with treats, yummy sweets included! 




There was even an awesome gift voucher, to try out the online store. Of course I obliged!






With nearly 18 000 pieces available, it was shopping heaven! Delivery could be door to door, via your local post office or at your nearest store - for just R35. I would save hours usually spent scouring stores! And in future (which might just be as soon as tomorrow), I could pay via EFT or debit card - no more black sheep syndrome because I'm without a credit card. Although, that could mean trouble...

I got a few great pieces, which I cannot wait to touch! Mr Price promises delivery within three days. My goodies will be here before the weekend? Never! Oh, I'll tell you when it happens :)

And if I'd like to exchange or return something - I could just go into a store and do so without hassle. No reason not to take the online plunge, then.

Thank you for the test surf Mr Price. You may have just exposed the online shopping beast in me!





Go check it out!

Nothing Fancy

Pants: Thrifted; Top: YDE; Shoes: Errol Arendz; Bag & Watch: ALDO; Bangle & Bracelets: Gifted; Ring: Sass Diva; Earrings: Mr Price


Come Friday I like to dress down, and super comfortable - to ring in the weekend. I'm looking forward to this one: Batman, thrift shopping and maybe some markets - with time spared for family. I love a good, chilled weekend. Hope you're doing something fun?!







Have a good one.

Flower Power

Skirt: Pure; Shirt: Vintage via Old Street; Shoes: Foschini;
Bag: ALDO; Bangle: Sass Diva; Earrings: Mr Price; Sunglasses: YDE


Another Pure skirt - I love it; it has the right amount of everything. I love these shoes too. I went back for the black pair and it's completely sold out in my size, country wide. I had nightmares for days. Excuse the melodrama, but if you find a shoe that fits this good (and looks even better), you do want it in every colour. That's no exaggeration.

Sorry that you're seeing these sunglasses, and bag, again. When I'm stumbling out of the house in the morning the last thing I think about is changing things up a bit. I hope the other kids (um, bags) don't feel left out.






Thank you to Lerato for these pictures.


Have a great day!

Give Me Flats

Skirt:Pure; Top: Piccadilly; Coat: Identity; Shoes: Mr Price;
Necklace: Sass Diva; Bag & Watch: ALDO; Sunglasses: YDE


One of those days today, where no heel appeals to me (they don't come around often) - just a bright, happy flat. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that - at 3PM - my day is far from over. Or, just, one of those days. Lazy girl.







Thank you to Lerato for these pictures.

I hope you're having a good week!
Thank you for coming by. And please, follow the blog :)

Earth Tones



Winter days are tough on me - all I want to do is be in my warm, cosy gown and slippers. Don't mention the mornings; the last thing I want to do is get out of bed and try to figure out what to wear. The answer, however, is layers - and vests. My mother was right - wear a vest.

Enough babble, enjoy the awkward smiles and squinting eyes :)

Out in Johannesburg: On the Job

Here are a few pictures taken out on location last week, as we wrapped up 16 shows for Turning Point International. Watch these in the coming months, and visit Turning Point Zone here


Just outside the Old Park Station in Newtown.

Taken from the Old Park Station platform. I love the Victorian-style architecture of the structure.

Also from the Old Park Station, a view of Newtown.

...And a view of the Nelson Mandela Bridge.

On the "Great African Steps" at Constitution Hill - where the old fort prison was years ago.

Chatting about scripts and other essentials.

Lerato fooling around on 'set', at the isolation cells - Constitution Hill.

At Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown, Soweto, the Tower which houses the Freedom Charter. This x is symbolic of our young democracy.

Pillars which represent our rights, as stipulated in the Freedom Charter.



Thank you for coming by. I hope you're having a great week.
