WIN: A R1000 gift voucher from Edgars!

Over the past few months I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time in various Edgars stores in order to select a few items to write blog posts about, namely:

How to wear a plaid shirt
How to wear a denim jacket
How to wear a polka dot top
How to wear a leather biker jacket
How to wear a striped top
How to wear Boyfriend jeans
How to wear gladiator sandals

As you can see from clicking on the posts above I found some really great items on the shelves and have really got so much wear out of each and every item I selected! If I’m honest I wasn’t someone who really used to shop at Edgars before this campaign, but I have been pleasantly surprised, and even blown away, at the amazing fashion brands now available in store as Edgars Exclusive International Brands.

The selection of top international brands is great and Edgars is now one of the first places I head to know when shopping for clothes. A few of my personal favourites are: Tom Tailor, Salsa, Lucky Brand and exclusive footwear & accessories brands Dune London and Vince Camuto. These brands, along with many others, have really brought a great variety to the store and provided trendy, fashion forward items of excellent quality to South African shoppers. And of course the range of Edgars exclusive brands Kelso, Free 2BU, Charter Club, Merien Hall and Penny C all provide great value.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. I would put it towards a dress i need for a wedding in May or even a gorgeous pair of heels

  2. I would buy shorts, I lost quite a lot of weight and shorts are the one thing I have very few of, also a pair of short for each of my boys, can’t exactly go shopping without getting something for them as well now can I.

  3. I would definitely spend then on Dune London heels & bag!!!!

    Have a few job interviews for next month so these would make the perfect impression!!!

    Failing that perhaps some nice beauty products πŸ™‚

  7. Hmm, it all looks very stunning and will do much for my confidence. I have so many unplanned expenses atm I haven’t spoiled myself in a long time….My pleather jacket has finally started shedding (as they do) so a biker jacket would be my number one as it goes with absolutely everything!

  15. I would definitely take the voucher and spoil myself for a change, its been a while. between hubby and my two boys every extra bit I have goes to them. Even if I go out and shop for myself I end up shopping for them. So i believe I certainly deserve a treat πŸ™‚

  16. I would really love to buy a handbag I saw at edgars as I just started using a handbag after 10 years of carrying a nappy bag and I think having a bag I really love will be such a treat to me for enduring the nappy bag for so long. Thanks for the great competition.

  17. This is such a wonderful giveaway and thanks for an always stylish, fun and informative blog.
    As we are in the throes of a summer lovin’ affair, I have my eyes on a pair of Kelso silver sandals and a fabulous sun hat for lazy beach days. x

    I would buy me some pretty summer dresses!

  23. Id use it on some new undies, love Edgars bras and panties……gotta spoil myself abit because as all moms do, we buy for kiddies moat of the time

  24. With Valentines Day coming up and also our three year anniversary being together. It will all be spend on the Love of my Life!! She will probably go for shoes as well!

  25. it would help towrd my new wardrobe since ihave lost few kgs, ihave been a good gal lately…………..

  26. I would buy a new pair of jeans, some clothes for my daughters and underwear (Edgars has the best) Would love to spoil my girls even if I spend the whole R1000 on them. Such a wide variety to choose from. Love this comp, great prize, shared on Twitter. Fingers crossed! <3

  28. Survey completed πŸ™‚

    I would love to buy myself a new outfit from Forever New at Edgars seeings as my birthday is less than a month away and I am going to be a quarter of a century old!

    I have tweeted: @Roxi_23 is my user handle!

    I am a fan on your Facebook Page – Roxanne Chutthergoon

  29. Would spend this voucher on a pair of running takkies, since my resolution for the new year is to get fit .. and while I am trying road running, I can already see the desperate need for new shoes .. something my budget does make room for.

  30. I would most probably spend most of it on clothes and shoes for my kids, and maybe a little something for the husband too.

  31. I would day dream about all the things I could buy and then spend it on kids’ clothes, toys and nappies!!

  32. Without a doubt shoes shoes shoes. I love shoes. And since I wear a size 3, I buy whenever I see a stunning shoe as my size is almost always sold out.

  33. Dune London shoes or handbag! I have a fetish for shoes and bags. They’re absolutely gorgeous and I’ll be dreaming of them tonight…

  34. Ooh, there are so many things I’d buy. New shoes, bling and some divine new lingerie to celebrate my birthday in two weeks time…

  35. I’ve been eyeing a Tom Taylor demin jacket. Since your post on how to wear a denim jacket, I’ve looked at Edgars and fell completely in love but couldn’t afford to buy. Hopefully this will be it!

  36. Yoooweee, who wouldn;t want to shop the world! But let’s me honest, R1000 will only take you that far – but far enough as a nice new outfit for my 1st day at my new job (been waiting for 6 months). This will be my good omen, as I have not got the job yet, but I am speaking it into truth. 1 more interview to go! A stunning new pair of jeans from Tom Tailor would be awesome, as my work entails being on my feet all day & busy, these would take me far, in style. πŸ™‚

  37. After recently giving birth,I took on my news years resolution into getting fit and thus to my old self again,with valentines approaching I would love to purchase a victoria secerts valentine lingerie set,to ignite the passion between my loved one and myself.

  38. I would totally get myself either Tom Tailor jeans or either a pair of shoes or handbag from Steve Madden (my FAV designer) πŸ˜€ <3

  39. I would like to buy a shift dress from Forever New but desperately need new trainers/hiking shoes so would probably do the sensible thing and buy new shoes if I won

    Oh and PS I also like the awesome comps on the blog – forgot to mention that in the survey

  40. Since valentines day is coming up and I am single I think Id like to spoil myself with some gorgeous Sissy Boy and La Senza lingerie.. because I think it is so important for woman to feel sexy everyday regardless of a man.. dress for yourself first! Cause even if no body else sees it when you feel good it shows in the way you carry yourself and your whole your attitude!.. and that will only attract good things πŸ™‚ and when someone does get to see what you are hiding under your clothes they wont be disappointed! πŸ˜‰ so bye bye granny brooks! πŸ˜‰

  41. I would like to buy a few pairs of sandals – keep my feet cool during the hot summer days & days and make them look pretty too!

  42. I would definitely spend it on upgrading my work wear, because, let’s be honest, I will actually get more use out of it as work takes up more time of my life than leisure. Better to feel and look good at work and make blue Mondays a little brighter, right?! πŸ™‚

  43. i would like to buy a long sleek sexy jacket that’s goes with all outfits plus a hand bag,shoes n hat. From Miss P Soobramoney my bday on 23 February I would highly appreciate this gift n I’d b very great full.

  44. I would spend it on some nice shoes.. and I love the Kelso brand so definatley a few clothing items from there too. πŸ™‚

  45. Completed the Survey!! Also shared on facebook and google +. If I had to win I would use the R1000.00 to buy myself a studding pair of shoes for my wedding. I dont have a pair yet.

  46. Fantastic give-away! I would love a denim jacket! Definitely what my wardrobe is missing πŸ™‚

  47. aaaah so many things….. but I think I would buy a biker jacket and a plaid shirt. Two things I have coveted for ages but have never gotten around to buying!

  48. As my mother used to tell me, “It’s not the winning, but the taking part that matters.”

    Yes, should we win R1000 Edgars gift voucher, me shall stagger round in rockin’ Dr. Martens and get a cosy cardigan for mother, her hands don’t knit so well.

  49. I would buy a cute dress for my brothers wedding or maybe something nice for winter? OR maybe some shoes πŸ˜‰

  50. Thanks for the competition, with such a negative start to 2015 where everything that could go wrong went wrong!! I would spoil myself for once with a Tom Tailo jeans.

  51. I would buy one or two shirts from the Donna Claire collection (they are quite pricey) and if I have anything left I would buy some make up or Yardley perfume. πŸ™‚

  52. i am starting a new job in february definitely need some new professional clothes for work. I would by one or two new blouses and a pair of suit pants to help my wardrobe.

  53. Since I’m not working an valentine its coming this month I want to spoil my girl friend once a year pls.

  60. I would add some classic/timeless items to my new wardrobe, like the denim jacket and polka dot tops. Also a pair (or two) of Gladiator sandals.

  61. I would buy Vince Camuto heels and Lucky Brand Charlie skinny jeans. Have tweeted @rehanaseedat

  62. I would spend it on clothing that I desperately need. I have put on weight and clothes are fast becoming uncomfortable. Also, my clothes are so old and outdated. I have had some of the items since I was a teenager and I am now in my 30’s!!!!! With two children that are my world their needs come first so as much as I do love fashion and clothes have not been able to get anything new. It would be such a confidence booster to wear fashionable new clothes that I can be proud of as the clothes I have now don’t represent the person I have become. It would mean so much to win this. I have completed the survery. Thank you so much for a chance to win.

  63. Done! I’ve been eyeballing this beautiful dress at Jo Borkett that I’ve been too scared to try on in case I love it too much. With the change, I’ll finally get new bedding for myself and husband. (You know the kids always come first.)

  64. Tweeted on Twitter. πŸ™‚ I would certainly use the voucher to get myself a decent pair of heels (all the heels I own are hand-me-downs from family members, lol) and a pretty Hallmark watch I’ve been eyeing for ages.

  65. My eldest officially needs clothing she had a growth spurt so I will buy her a couple of things after I buy myself a new pair of shoes…

I would would either get one of the the gorgeous Lipsy London or Jo Borkett dresses I saw for a wedding that’s coming up or a stunning pair of Dune London heels. I saw the cutest Salsa top too … Oh sigh … What a girl to do with sooooo many amazing choices … tweeted via @Kimb_leigh too πŸ™‚
