Can you believe it’s August already?! Although I’m prone to feeling agitated by the speed of time, at least August brings hints of spring and suggests a glorious summer to come! The daylight hours are definitely getting longer and although I’m still battling to get myself out of bed in the mornings, earlier dawns and later sunsets (if not warmer!) certainly help my mood!
The spring and summer fashions are undoubtedly something to look forward to! South Africa is blessed with some of the best weather world-wide, so there is plenty of time and wardrobe options to enjoy less clothing, more skin and that sun kissed feeling. With edited versions of 80’s and 90’s fashions back in the trends, it’s time to enjoy what was good about these periods (oversized styles, flashes of colour, lux grunge, casual chic) and rework vintage pieces (recessionista anyone?) hiding at the back of your (or your mom’s) cupboard.
Some Friends with Jenny news: there are more and more stockists countrywide, so check back to this blog frequently to find out where. Also, Friends with Jenny will be releasing some simply awesome and glam 2010 t-shirts from October – to get everyone in the mood for the soccer spectacle that is sure to dominate from January 2010! The Friends with Jenny tea parties are a huge success – what better way to indulge in some retail therapy (and a catch-up) than in your lounge with your girlfriends, some cake and a few bubbles? And finally, to launch Spring/Summer 2010, Friends with Jenny will be holding OPEN DAYS in Johannesburg, Cape Town AND Durban!! Dates and venues to be confirmed, so watch this space (and let your countrywide friends know of the shopping experience coming to their city soon!)
Have a good week!
The MASSIVE winter SALE continues with 50% off all winter goodies! Some AWESOME pieces still left! Book an appointment ASAP (or regret it later!).
