i’m walking on bargains 

The one thing I love more than shopping is shopping for bargains.

The suburb of Boksburg is known for many things but I highly doubt being a fashion hotspot is one of them – I’m trying to change that – one post at a time. I mean it is home to the only H&M in Ekurhuleni and boasts two of my favourite Mr Price branches.

The past weekend I went looking for bargains and boy did Boksburg deliver. 

I started off at the Woolies Quality sale in East Rand Mall (it’s still on by the way) and found these amazing tassel detail peep toe block heels for R270. With the last few weeks of summer still with us I’m excited to rock these babies. 


I’ve styled them with some new goodies from my range: Ifindo earrings, R50; cuff, R70; mini Indoni, R130 (all items available in assorted colours).

Luckily for me, East Point is right next to East Rand Mall and boasts some amazing outlet stores including Nike, Adidas, Superga, Levi’s and my new favourite spot: Call It Spring – the heel life is really growing on me. They are currently running a 2 pairs for R500 special which could mean savings of up to well over R700.

I found two pairs that spoke to me and I can’t wait to rock them. 

This wedge is feather light – it feels like you’re walking on air. I’m definitely going to rock mine with a pair of Zuzi earrings, R150 and a mini Indoni, R130 (all items available in assorted colours). 

The other pair I took are these cork beauties, and they are everything! I totally feel like I was born in the wrong decade – I’m a 70s baby and these platforms speak to that. They look really high to me and there is a chance of me falling in them – but hey for these babies, I’m willing to risk it. 

For these, I’m loving my Yato Jewellery Studio leaf headpiece – she makes some amazing pieces in her studio and she’s very budget friendly! I also added my newly available Cleopatra earrings, R50 to finish off the look. 

In my many adventures (which is just me getting lost in the place) I managed to find Palms Value Centre located on North Rand Road. My eyes and ears couldn’t believe it when I was told that the Cotton On group had two of its popular brands’ outlets, Cotton On and Factorie, right there at the value centre.  

Although Cotton On and Factorie don’t stock plus sizes, I’m still a fan of the brands and love their heels and accessories. 

I found these amazing burgundy mules from Cotton On. They only set me back R150 and they are super comfy and can be worn with my dresses, skirts and jeans. 

I’ve styled them a pair of tassel earrings, R60 and a rope neckpiece, R250 from my range.

I’m totally inspired to shoot these looks with full outfits and hope to share this with you all soon.

Happy bargain hunting – I hope you come across great finds like I have.
