Fab finds: Spring Sandals

I was trawling local online stores yesterday and came across these beauties from Zoom (at Style 36). I have the exact same pair from Woolworths and always get compliments on them, alas I haven't seen any at Woolies in a while now. The great news is that the Raina Heels in Black are only R299! Check them out soon, the nude ones are sold out already!

All of my fave bloggers rock these strappy sandals too!

Coveted: Zoom Shoes

There is something about these Zoom shoes that makes me swoon. I love the minimal floral detailing and the usual shape. These beauts would be perfect with a little lace dress.

Forever New launches Home Accessories

Forever New, one of my favourite stores, has launched home accessories - and they're simply gorgeous! This Australian store has a beautiful aesthetic, combining ranges from different colour families; namely pastel, jewel-tones, and monochrome. Only 13 items were launched on their Australian online store recently, but I anticipate that the collection will out preform and be hitting our shores soon as well as launching a wider range. The "Samantha Jewellery Box" is a personal favourite of mine. Which do you like best?

H&M comes to South Africa!!

I am extremely excited that my fave retailer ever, H&M, is coming to South Africa! Albeit only in 2015 :)

Read more here - 

HENNES & Mauritz (H&M), the world’s second-largest fashion chain, is the latest in a string of top global brands set to open shop in South Africa.
H&M has signed a lease to open a store in Mall of Africa in Johannesburg, and is working to find a way to open in the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, according to sources.
Mall of Africa, which is due to open at the end of 2015, is being developed by Atterbury Property Holdings. A confidentiality agreement is in place, and the retailer is working on finding premises in Cape Town. H&M looked at the previous Pick n Pay site in the V&A Waterfront, but that did not materialise, and is now looking at other options.
H&M has been keen to get into the local market but, similarly to clothing and accessories retailer Zara, is finding it difficult to secure prime space in the size it requires at top centres. The retailer also looked at Sandton City, but it has not yet found a suitable site there.
The Swedish retail giant pioneered the concept of fast-fashion stores by collaborating with top designers and celebrities. It is playing catch-up with Zara, which is owned by Inditex of Spain, and Arcadia Group’s Topshop, both of which are now operating in South Africa
Hennes & Mauritz has six independent brands, including Weekday, and operates in more than 40 markets. The fashion chain opened its first store south of the equator in Chile in March and is expected to expand further around the world.
H&M is keeping its cards close to its chest, but CEO Karl-Johan Persson told the Financial Times in May that the group was considering starting production in South America and Africa.
The group was founded by Karl-Johan’s grandfather, Erling, and was previously run by his father, Stefan.

The Blonde Salad for Superga

Chiara Ferragni is one of my fave fashion bloggers. She reigns from Italy and writes her blog posts in both English and Italian. She's a world traveller, she even coined the hash tag #theblondesaladneverstops, often seen around Europe and America. And the part that makes me jealous the most, it's mostly on a brand's bill as she travels for her blog! Now that's a dream I need to fulfil! 

She recently posted about her collab with Superga, and I am thrilled to announce that they will be available in a from October! The capsule collection includes summery crochet lace sneakers in three pastel colours: pink, blue and cream. I personally have my eyes on the cream ones, how about you?

The limited edition Superga for the Blonde Salad capsule collection will retail for R800 and will be available from Superga Flagship stores from October 2013.

For retail information please call (011) 608 0023.
