Shopping with the Moi team @ Mitzi, Willowbridge

Mitzi fashion boutique was built on the notion that every woman should feel beautiful inside and out. The perfect dress or outfit should inspire the imagination and lift your spirits. You will find the perfect outfit to make you look and feel like a dream, make you feel desirably sexy, whimsical at best or even give you a sense of childlike innocence. Depending on your mood, Mitzi will provide you with a wide variety of choices in terms of styles and designers. Every single design will be unique and timeless, just like the sophisticated woman the store concept appeals to.

The Moi team went on a shopping trip to Willowbridge to see what's happening this season in the shops for Summer 2010/2011. Our first stop was at Mitzi who stocks designer labels such as Desray, Trinity Jones, Catherine Moore and hand bags by Mari-Leen Bauermeister and Chimpel.

What we have found is that nude colours or pastels are very in for this season. Stripes and florals are also big for this season.

Here Sybil has found the perfect little black dress which you can dress casually with floral, lace or plain leggings and pumps or dress it up with a leather belt and add some bling to glam up for the evening with some heels.

Here Rozanne is wearing a black swing top which is ideal to wear over tank tops for layering. This look is nice to wear with skinny jeans, jeggings or shorts for summer.

Big leather handbags with animal skin in nude colours and black are very fashionable for this summer.

Glam up your leather handbags with silk or chiffon scarves to add some summer colour to your look.

 A special thanks to our lovely photographer, Magrietjie for documenting our day.

Elbeth Gillis 2010/ 2011 collection launch

The Moi Team attended the launch of Elbeth Gillis's 2010/2011 collection at the Protea Fire and Ice hotel. We like to refer to Elbeth as the Chanel of SA, because of her undying passion and love for all things simple in life and of course lace garments! There were amazing dresses and we are delighted to share a few pics with you that was taken on the evening.

Colour Crazy for 2011 Bridal Trends!

Whether you have that all-important rock on your wedding finger or not, us girls can't help but sit up and take notice of the latest bridal trends. So with Bridal Fashion Week 2011 held in New York and Paris earlier this year , Moi will be highlighting the most beautiful bridal colour, look and feel soon to be walking down the aisle near you...

For brides that are scheduling a 2011 wedding, we have some exciting news for you! La Cuir A Paris (a French fashion fair/expo that attracts fashion designers from around the world) have released their color forecast for Spring/Summer 2011.

Here are the latest colour forecasts and we've put together Moi mood boards to create a look and feel for such a wedding theme and colour scheme.

“Archaic Garden” – The range is whitened, stony, mineral or delicately fruity. The softness of faded, evanescent, light and serious colours.

“Enchanted Picnic” – The range sets your teeth on edge. The neon colors are whitened. Jelly pink is transparent, the pastels are over-bright. The brights are on fire, tempered by a reasonable grey and a measured beige.

“Tropical Dramaturgy” – The range is solar, incandescent, spicy and suffocating. Yellow singing at the top of its voice, uninhibited parrot green, the orange of Tibetan monks, the entire spectrum of reds from purple to salmon pink. Bushy brown, deep blue.

“Underwater Variation” – The range delves into the blue, and extends to an aqua green. Sea anemone pink is enhanced by inky blues and purples. Navy and brown darken the landscape. White soap bubbles refresh the saturated atmosphere.

Some brides are afraid to combine different colours to a wedding theme and these mood boards show that it is easy to do so and ensures that your wedding will be fresh and fashion forward. Embrace the colour and think outside the box and I promise you that your wedding style will be the one everyone will be talking about.

Watch out for our next article regarding bridal fashion for 2011...

Till we post again
