Shopping for handbags can sometimes be a daunting task. If you don’t have a large budget but you want ones that can go with a lot of your wardrobe I suggest you get to that will almost go with every occasion and from day to night as well!
Choose a light handbag for daytime in a neutral colour that will go with everything from black and grey to blue and yellow. I love dusty pink which is very in right now but camel or cream colours will also work well. This structured bag from Dune London in Canal Walk is perfect to take to work or go out shopping with. It has enough space for all your essentials but still looks classy.
For night time I will always suggest black because it is so versatile. This stunning quilted bag from Forever New in Canal Walk has the right combination of gold hardware and detail to make any outfit look super expensive. It will go great with jeans and a sparkly top or with a little black dress and wont overshadow your outfit, only add to it.
For more stunning handbags also visit Steve Madden, Nine West and Charles & Keith.

If you feel like spoiling yourself for Valentine’s day this year you should visit Inglot in Canal Walk! They have a gorgeous stand alone-store as well as a beauty section inside the newly launched Edgars. We are absolutely loving their new lips and tips range and you will as well. It features some absolutely smouldering colours, perfect for the month of love. They have the fantastic Freedom system lip gloss that will leave your lips feeling moisterised with good coverage and a subtle shine.
I also love their breathable nail enamels to go with your new pout and this nail polish is amazing as it lets your nails breathe and keeps them healthy while enhancing their beauty with some striking colors.
We just love the gloss in 202 and the nail polish in 659. Perfect for the hot Cape Town weather.
If you are planning on doing some shopping this weekend you definitely need to pop into Truworths in Canal Walk. They have some utterly gorgeous new goodies including this stunning graphic tee. I obviously couldn’t resist buying it and it works great with some skinny jeans!
The ultimate fashion event of the year has to be the glitzy and prestigious J&B Met. This year it is happening on the first of February and it promises to be one fantastic day. The official sponsor of this year’s met is Lipsy London and they definitely have the theme “Made to Conquer” down. With elaborate beading, strong silhouettes and gorgeous colours you will definitely feel like you are able to conquer the world in one of their dresses.
Lipsy is available at Edgars and their gorgeous flagship store is located in Canal Walk. There are plenty of dress options to choose from (I have included some of my favourites) and remember all customers who buy tickets to the J&B Met Lifestyle Village will get 25% off their purchase to dress for the event, when they present their J&B Met ticket.
