Seems like it’s Mr Price Monday on my blog, right? Can I help it that my fave fast fashion store is pulling out all the stops to impress?
Amber Jones is set to release another range into Mr Price stores this November. Here are some of her pretty amazing things as seen on the runway:
Cleo Droomer, 2010’s Elle New Talent winner, is finally getting his stuff into Mr Price stores today.
I cannot deal with how cute this collection is. I have my eye on that maxi/ grey top combo.
To see which stores are stocking Cleo’s collection and how much these pieces cost, head over HERE.
It’s no secret that I adore Amber Jones. She’s all kinds of awesome. So I’m really excited to announce that her range with Mr Price - called The Best is Yet to Come - hits stores on 25th JULY! Yes, on Monday! Pay day! Holla!
Amber sat down with ELLE South Africa’s Jenna McArthur to chat about the range and here’s some of what she had to say:
We love the range, how would you describe it?
Wow. Hard one. A rather-odd-in-a-good-way schoolgirl who often wears her dad’s clothes from the seventies…
Tell us about the colours and fabrics used?
I was having a love affair with texture when I designed it so I chose chunky knits, linen suitings, printed woven viscose and faux fur for warmth and added denim and cotton twills for contrast. The colour palette is very earthy, with splashes of navy and warm burnt oranges.
What sets this range apart from others?
Little details like elbow patches, paper-bag waist detail, statement buttons and raw reversed hems. I really wanted the girl who wears these clothes to feel we cared about how she felt in them.
Everything in this range is completely wantable and the price point makes it imminently gettable. Look how cute:
On my shopping list:
Actually, who am I kidding? Something tells me I’m going to buy more than that :) Congratulations, Amber!
Dear Monique LHullier… Sigh. I thank you. That is all. Janine. x
This piece of prettiness is from the LA-based designer’s Resort 2012 collection.
Regardless of how you feel about Beyonce’s first single off 4, Who Run the World (Girls) [To be honest, it took an entire month to grow on me!], the video is all kinds of awesome.
Fashion Bomb Daily broke down all the designer looks from the video. Just goes to show how much work was put into the vid.
I swear this is my last Met Gala post for today. But this picture’s so good, I couldn’t resist. So apparently Beyonce’s dress was so tight, she couldn’t make it up the steps without help from her husband Jay Z and another assistant? Now that’s being dedicated to your look, Ms Knowles!

The good people (*cough* Vie *cough*) over at Twenty Two are hosting another edition of their fab Fashion Friday events at 70 Juta Street this Friday. If you haven’t yet sorted your winter wardrobe,
shame on you get there and buy something cute!
So many people wore spangly sparkly gold numbers. It’s officially a thing. Again.
[MET GALA: WHAT WERE Y’ALL THINKING] I don’t have the heart to blog about these looks individually, but I was disappointed in all of them. Especially my current style crush Solange Knowles.
To quote ELLE Fashion Editor Kirsty: sen-sa-tional! And I swear I didn’t just pick this because the Gala honoured McQueen… This look honestly made my heart skip a beat.
