My Affair: Below R300 Mini Market Sale

I'm not quite sure how many reminders I did and how many silly posts I placed about this mini market. But I did. And I'm grateful I did. The mini market yesterday was the best thing that could have happened to me this December. At one point, it felt like I was cheating on the V&A and Cavendish with this mini market. But who cares. Men are known to be cheaters so I'll take my chances.

The Mini Market was hosted by the two lovely ladies, Thina and Thando. Creatives by heart but fashion enthusiasts by nature, it seems. The venue was the exclusive hidden gem of, Ragazzi. It's this haven perched peculiarly above a African Trade store, in between one mangy-looking building to the left and a Victorian building to the right. Ragazzi's is now my new home for Thursday after work drinks. I'm just saying.

So when I entered the venue, I was greeted by a swanky dressed mannequin and a small sign post indicating one had arrived. Some peeps had beat me to the venue so clearly finding gems in all the clothes was going to require some focus. Which is never a problem since auto-focus usually kicks in when I see clothes and bags. There were more items for the ladies, than the gents, however, I made do with some killer pieces that will move my day into night without changing wardrobes or looking out of place.

Below are some pics of the venue and what was available.











So, through all that auto-focusing, below I show you what I walked away with. I'm super proud of my buys and I'm already reeling from the number of different looks I can pull off with these items. Which is the beauty of turning fashion into style. Nine items will help develop close to 16 different looks. It's exciting times I tell.











Look out for upcoming posts where I show you what I can do and will be doing with these items and give suggestions of other looks one can pull off, pending on what items one has in their wardrobe.

I'm looking forward to the next installment in the first quarter of 2012.
