Winter Style with Spree


My winter closet is in desperate need of an overhaul. It is predominately dark and structured, but I’ve always veered towards classic pieces which sits kind of in the middle of masculine and feminine.

This season I hope to start introducing a few contrasting pieces, like this leather-inset coat from Spree. It has a great structure to it, but the faux leather collar adds a touch of edge and masculinity. I’ll contrast this with a pop of feminity in the form of a pleated shirt, peplum knit or even  pointed stilletos. In my opinion a basic pair of skinny blue jeans is the perfect foil for any statement piece and these from Next not only look great but they also fit the bill.

And who can resist a pair of suede over-the-knee boots? They can be very sexy but worn with a pair of black jean-leggings and an oversized knitted jacket it completes the perfect weekend look.

I am also a recent convert to gold hardware and love the how it adds a touch of luxe to any accessory yet remains understated. The messenger bag is perfect for weekend brunches and the tassle bag is perfect for toting around your weekday essentials. Now just for the final touch, the ultimate red lippie from Bourjois.

Shop these and other great winter essentials at Spree.co.za. I’ll be launching an exciting competition in partnership with Spree tomorrow, so you might want to save those items in your shopping basket before checkout to see what I have in store. Have a great Sunday and see you all tomorrow!

Shopgirl Finds: Heart Shaped Plates

hartjie bordeAs I mentioned earlier, my fiance and I am now in the throes of apartment hunting and it has been really hard to steer clear of the shops until we find somewhere to stash it. But browsing on the internet doesn’t count does it?

I love this subtle hint to Valentine’s Day without it being too cheesy. As it is white you really can get away with using it as  servers year round. I am just picturing it ladled with chocolate-dipped strawberries or a delicious French toast breakfast on V-day.

The best part about it? It is on sale at www.spree.co.za
