Melissa’s discovery at You, me and everyone we know market

Another discovery <3

Melissa, my go to girl joined us at the You,Me and everyone we know market a just before 7. Although we were pretty much done searching through the market and decided to leave, Mel continued with her shopping session as she was determined to find one piece that stood out to her and by golly she sure found something :D.


Made with love high waisted shorts for R150! Gorgeous

Thanks for reading <3

LBD found at the You,Me and everyone we know market

While browsing around at the market I turned my back once and wow my friend Charne found the prettiest little black dress with a bow detailing on the bust. Its a perfect dress to dress up and turn into a sultry number or pair some flats with it and spend the day at the gardens. 

Definitely one of those little treasures waiting to be found at markets…

Before I forget to mention :)… It cost only R70!! Not bad for a first time bargain hunter.

You, Me and Everyone we know market

A new experience

The “You,me and everyone we know market” was held on the 2nd of March at the Labia Theatre on Orange. The atmosphere was electric as the Dj spinned some beats while the crowd took to some well deserved retail therapy.

With a variety of designers such as Vintage Lover and Black Rose Bouquet you are sure to find something you through the bustling crowds and its free to enter so it is a perfect way to start your weekend without blowing crazy amounts of cash! We took to the market in a pack of four, ready for action, in the mood to have some fun.

Crazy shopper alert!

Introducing Charne our latest intermediary frugal shopper!!

:) this post is just a an introduction to our experience at the You,Me and Everyone know market… I’ll post our bargain treasures tomorrow :)

Affordable night out

Need a trendy gorgeous look for a night out on the town??

Why not revamp your clothing, rearrange and  reinvent yourself :)

My ultra stylish friend Shelley is wearing- Top (which is actually a knitted dress) by Truworths which she got on sale for R99.00

The skirt and belt were purchased at a Vintage Sale for R100,.00 and R80.00 respectively and all her accessories are home made! Creative and affordable all the while utilising your everyday sneakers to maximize your saving and add some unique style to an already fun affordable night out ensemble.

Kudos! by far most fashion forward finance student!
