Hi guys, these pics were taken by my little bro before I went out on Saturday evening. Half of this outfit was bought in China Town in Sable Square. I went there two weeks ago with my bride-to-be best friend searching for wedding supplies. We found wedding supplies and lots of cute clothes, which was a great bonus. I bought this dress for a mere R120, bargain! I don’t expect it to stand the test of time, but that’s okay. I also got the rings at R20 each. I say it’s definitely worth the visit!
