I was invited to the unveiling of the new and impressive Sandton City section plus the opening of new gorgeous stores such as Thomas Sabo, Superga and Zara.
I have never experienced this before. I actually walked in and I could swear I heard the clouds part and Angels sing. It was emotional. A happy tear or 2 may have welled up as I experienced 2700 square meters of retail heaven.
I have ALWAYS LOVED Zara clothing, but I’ve only indulged when I’ve gone overseas. I kind of liked the exclusivity of it.
Before it would be:
“Oh I love your dress, where did you get it from?”
I’d secretly love saying (such a brat): “Zara, in Switzerland/Croatia etc..”
Now it will be:
“Oh I love your dress, where did you get it?”
Oh well… I’m much happier that it is here now.
The one thing I was interested in was the prices. Overseas they are really reasonable. Would that be the same here in South Africa?
Can I do a Happy Dance?
Oh wait. I did.
In the store.
Sorry if you saw that. I know you can’t unsee things. Apologies.
They are reasonable (Angels sang again) and I had to remind myself I was in public… in front of cameras and media… I couldn’t just run around like a blonde blur grabbing clothes off racks like I was running a race.
Greg and my dad looked at me like I had lost my marbles. Until they saw the male section. Let’s just say that the first person who bought anything was…ahem… my G!
I walked out with bags swinging, a content look on my face and excited to wear my new coral jacket, red silk dress and green tee (Not all at once. I heard you fashioni-stars gasp.)
The new section is gorgeous… There were bottomless flutes of champagne and plates of Oysters, glamorous people all dressed elegantly with a touch of gold and I have now been introduced to my new home away from home. I think I had better make good friends with my bank manager… and fast!
PS. All photos were taken off Greg’s iPhone. There. I said it. Love, A Blackberry user.
