It was only a matter of time before online shopping made it's way here. I am the first to admit that I was a bit scared to shop online. What if it doesn't fit? I like to touch the garment, and try it on. But, there is no denying how convinent it is. Now when I'm rushing through the stores and either don't have the time patience, or there are too many people, I find myself saying "oh I'll just get it online!". I have now shopped online a few times and I am hooked on the feeling of coming home to find a parcel waiting for me with pretty goodies inside, and I love that you can always return and get your money back if it's not what you were hoping it would be - at least that's the case from the online stores I have bought from thus far. So, don't be scared and give 'em a shot. If you don't like it, you don't have to try it again. Trust in it and soon enough you'll be hooked, which might be a bit worrying when you find yourself in bed shopping most nights, eek! Talking of saving time, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town is coming up and I need some essentials since I'll be attending most shows. I found three must-haves from Spree.co.za. I always need comfy shoes, a big bag to store my camera and notepad and of course something to keep me warm for standing outside between shows and catching some fresh air. So, now you know what I'll be shopping tonight, oh jees!

The online shopping bug has bitten me so bad, I must say receiving a parcel is so exiting! Feels like Chrismas , even though I paid for it! I studied a year of fashion design , I have a strong passion, love and understanding for fashion and the industry. I am currently busy with my commerce degree, and would like to combine fashion and business one day. To be able to attend Cape Town fashion week would be such a honour and I would love and enjoy every second of it. :)

I'd absolutely love to go! This is the first year that Cape Town Fashion week is not during Ramadaan so this would be an amazing show to attend. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed and hoping that I win these tickets :)

Fashion is such a big part of my life and it'd be amazing if this love could grow even more if I were to attend MBFWCT. Really hoping I'm the lucky one :) X

I totally agree with you about the feeling of coming home to parcels, it's like having a birthday all year round. I love the effortless-ness of online shopping and I also like the fact that so many stores are now also becoming online stores.

Fingers crossed that I can win the tickets!

Hi Spree! Great website! Would love to go to the Michelle Ludek show. Just moved to Cape Town and never been to a big show like this before!

Hannah Rose said...

Love your site first of all =D Attending Cape Town Fashion Week would be one of, if not THE, most amazing experience ever! I would hate to miss out on such an awesome part of fashion history! I would be sincerely grateful for the rest of my life if I was able to go! I really hate to beg but I feel like I just have to a tiny bit, so... PLEEASE PLEASE PLEASE pick me to go! You have no idea how happy you would make me =D

Thanks a ton!

Well well, what can i say. MBFWCT is here once more and i'm trying my best not to fall to the floor. Just thinking of all clothing and set design is enough for me to switch fields and resign! I'd love to go to fashion week, i'd die to see Michelle Ludek. Make my day, my month, my YEAR.... If i don't win, i'll surely shed a tear.

#MBFWCT
