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!

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!

Mission: R100 outfit

Saturday the 25th of February our mission: Search and find an entire outfit for under R100.

The location: City Bowl Market in Hope Street.The fashion market happens once a month with 30 different designer ,you are sure to find something you’ll love.

I am no fashion expert and do not consider myself trendy so dressed in flats and comfy clothing, my partner in bargain hunting Melissa and I hit the market with our limited budget,enthusiasm and Mel’s killer eye.

The first sighting of my own personal nirvana, adam & eve had a seasonal sale-A range of items that would have your heart doing flips.

While browsing through the rails I found a gorgeous navy blue high waisted skirt and fell inlove with it immediately. Being a curvy and short I have learnt what works for my shape and without trying it on I knew it would be perfect and with the price tag to match :) I am sure you would agree…

R40,Yes your eyes do NOT fool you. 40 bucks for a brand new Adam and Eve designer item!

Now the only issue I had with the market was that there is soooo much to choose from! I decided the aim of the outfit would have to be multifunctional so it could be adapted to Cape Towns unpretendable weather(PMS MUCH!) and was delighted when I found a mint vintage knitted pull over. It was second hand so for all you “germaphobs” I suggest a quick wash.

After and awesome day of shopping, it was my turn to play dress up:) I paired the mint knit with the skirt. It’s perfect for summer as it is airy and not bulky, pair the outfit up with stockings, a killer blazer and your favourite boots to convert it to a trendy autumn outfit 

TADA!!! #DrumRoll please and the total outfit cost just R90! And the shopping experience priceless!! For all your first time market shopper, I’d definitely recommend the City Bowl Market.
