New Shoes!

OK, not so new but it is the newest pair I own. I do love these shoes I bought at Woolies. They are so comfy and they make me look taller. I hereby pledge my undying love for wedge heels!

The Thrill of a Sale

The YDE R99 sale, previously the R75 sale, has became a little tradition in my family. On sale day my sister and I wake up early, dress comfortably and persuade another family member to stand stand in line with the masses of other girls. Our hearts beat fast because we are nervous. We never know what we’re going to get. Will we be fast enough to grab that garment before someone else does?

When the doors open we charge in, go in different directions and grab what we can. We meet after our first grabbing session and check what we’ve got. We then move to the line where we take turns to queue while the other searches for more clothing. We queue for 30 minutes to 2 hours, but it’s worth it. By end of the line we have double the garments we started off with. We need to make quick decisions about what to take and what to leave! It’s torture!

Getting home is the fun part because that’s when we fit everything on and get excited about how lovely the garments look and fit.

Here are details of some of the items I bought at today’s sale. I can’t wait to wear each and every item!

Not only is this sale a fun and sometimes heart-wrenching shopping experience but it is also a time for sisterly bonding! I will definitely be at the next one!

Again!

Yes, I went to Milnerton Market again and I took pictures again. This time I was really tempted to buy that huge jar of buttons as well as some vintage toy cars for my brother. I realised that I don’t need a jumbo jar of buttons and that my brother has probably outgrown toy cars. I did buy something that makes me smile when I look at it everyday. I’ll show you as soon as I take a picture of it.

Favourite Things Market

On Saturday I popped into the first ever Favourite Things Market at Wembley Studios in Town. I’m a market addict so it was only natural that I went. There were only a few vendors so the market is still very small, but I am hoping they will grow. I took some pics of some of my faves at the market including Heathers Leathers and Bow Peep. For more details on the market, see the Favourite Things Blog.
