Country Road Autumn Collection 2013

Country Road

Country Road’s new autumn collection has me super excited for the new season. Renowned for their simplicity, quality and classical approach to trends – this season’s collection does not disappoint. With two main themes in this collection, monochromatic and luxe utilitarian, it perfectly represent the major trends on the runways. What girl can say no to polka dots and sparkly skirts. I can’t wait until the collection is in store! Which item are you craving most for this autumn/winter?

Animal print is definitely a trend you won’t be able to avoid this coming winter. Why not embrace the trend now with a few summer and transitional weather pieces. If the thought of leopard print scares you off, then why not try something a little more demure like the turtle print or a snakeskin shoe? There are easy ways to incorporate the trend without going all out. Remember you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks!

100_4223I totally want the polka dot top pictured left. You can’t see, but it has a frill at the bottom, creating a nice peplum effect and it is so flattering. It also combines three trends in one- peplum, polka dots and gold studs! Priced R250 at Woolworths (and not R225 as advertised in magazine).

Cute Glittery Find

I love browsing the inter-webs in search of cute clothes, although  I rarely buy as I am still not used to buying without having the luxury of trying on and touching before hand. This Zando dress is so cute that I may have to reconsider my stance on online shopping! Plus it is supposedly super easy to do returns.

What do you think? Isn’t it perfect for the party season ahead?

New Shop: Typo

Give me a stationery store with a love for all things pink and glitter and I am happy! Typo, being the latest of a slew of Australian stores to hit our malls, offers us the simple aesthetic of Australian design with a spin of hipster style in the form of stationery and home accessories.

They have the cutest mugs and flasks!

I love their cute gift wrap and card selection! Notepads are certainly one of their specialties  with a large section of the store dedicated to them. Sure they are a bit pricey, but this one’s paper can be replaced when it is empty. I am also lusting after the golden mail holder. Whose office space can’t do with a bit of bling?

I also adore the cute tablet, laptop and celphone covers they have. Not all their products are geared towards Apple users, so Samsung girls can also indulge in a little bit of glitter.

They now have stand-alone stores in both Canal Walk and Tygervalley Centre in the Western Cape.
