Do you have stores that you find yourself gravitating towards when you shop? I certainly do have those stores that I scour through first before visiting other stores.
Style By Shaheeda shops:
Zara is right on top of my list of favourites. I was really excited when they opened in Durban. The high street brand stocks contemporary items and there’s an array to choose from.
I visited the Zara store in New York and I was “Zara Heaven” so to speak as there was a major sale my dad had to pry me out the store because I was going a little cray.
If anything sticks out for me from Zara is their denim. I own two pairs of Zara Mid Rise Skinny jeans and they are the best fit ever. I have had the one for about two years now and it has been washed continuously yet they still look great. Another piece I love is a statement neck piece that I purchased for a wedding yet it goes with tons of things in my wardrobe and I always turn to it when I’m looking to add a little extra to my ensemble.
Mango is also a high street brand and they stock a lot of classic workwear items but their Mango Jeans collection is amazing for casual wear. I have a little obsession with their statement t-shirts and sweaters off late and I own quite a few I just can’t resist purchasing them. Lucky for me slogan items aren’t out just yet so I can get a little more wear out of them. I’m so glad that they have infiltrated into Edgars albeit a small collection I still get a Mango fix in my small town.
This Australian brand is fairly recent to our shores. Cotton On stocks a lot of trendy items and it’s my go to when I’m looking for something different. I have an obsession with chambray shirts and they stock quite a few in varied lengths and styles at reasonable prices. Last summer I was fond of printed pants and I purchased quite a few from them, they are great for warmer weather as they are really light weight. After months of trying to find the perfect boyfriend jeans I found them at Cotton On and now I live in them over the weekends so they are my best purchase from them.
I was first introduced to this Australian brand in Woolworths. Country Road is every classic personalities dream. If minimalist chic is your thing then this is your store. They opened flagship stores now so there’s a lot more variety. I have an affinity towards their sweaters I actually have one for about two years and I always get compliments when I wear it. They are quite pricey but their quality is unsurpassed.

Give me quality, classic and a little bit of creativity and I’m there…
