The stunning, Cara Frew recently let us in on her fave beauty stores and fashion spots … and we’re definitely taking notes.
Best accessory shop:
Pichulik has the most beautiful African-inspired pieces, extremely unusual and absolutely exquisite. I’m lucky enough to have a few of the necklaces and accessories that I enjoy wearing no matter the time of day or night! You’ll find it in the Watershed in Newtown Junction.
Best beauty mecca (spa):
The spa at The Saxon Hotel is absolutely stunning; it’s a little oasis in the middle of the Joburg madness.
Best clothing store for her:
I’m a big Woolworths fan. It has such a stunning selection of trendy, comfortable clothing that fits my personal style. I also love Paige Denim … I live in her jeans and easy-to-wear shirts. She can be found online!
Best clothing store for him:
I think Diesel is a very cool store for men – on trend, relaxed, cool, easy-to-wear everyday clothing.
Best exclusive boutique:
Ryan Keys is my absolute favourite. The sexy, statement, one-of-a-kind, off-the-rack pieces in his shop in Hyde Park Corner are fabulous and if you can’t find something ready-made, he’ll whip up a custom made bespoke item in no time. I LOVE wearing his garments.
Best hair salon:
Franca Adriano of hair Romance in Bramley is definitely the best hair stylist! I get the most brilliant colour, stunning blow-waves and precise cuts.
Best jewellery store:
Pandora’s selection of jewellery is incredible, I love dressing up or down with an iconic charm bracelet and accessorising with its beautiful rings and elegant necklaces.
Best nail bar:
Soho Salon in Sandton City – the pedi and mani treatments are amazing , relaxing and just what a girl needs.
Best place to buy beauty products:
Woolworths is my one-stop shop as it has many brands to choose from, and its own branded products are some of my staples.
Best shoe shop:
Steve Madden has such stunning shoes … I absolutely love the fun, colourful, and sassy styles.
Best show-them-off undies:
Has to be Woman’secret! It has such a wide range of sexy pieces that are also very comfortable to wear.
