So, what­ever your goals, here’s to a 2017 in which you nur­ture your pre­cious spirit, feed your spe­cial soul – and make time to cel­e­brate it all, start­ing right now! Magic, hap­pi­ness and fab­u­lous heels to you, our beau­ti­ful reader. May you –

Pn­ina Fen­ster pn­ina@con­de­ … Big gold hoop ear­rings bought as a birth­day gift to my­self a few years ago. Love that luxe-hip­pie vibe!

Deputy Edi­tor and Beauty Di­rec­tor Michelle Brown­lee Smith michelleb@con­de­ … Flats. With so many gor­geous op­tions, I can glam up with­out heels.

Ziyaad Bassier ziyaad@con­de­ … The per­fect jeans. Once you nd the right t, colour and style, they’re the only thing to wear ev­ery season.

Chrisna de Bruyn chrisna@con­de­ … My white adi­das sneak­ers. They’re the per­fect kicks for when I’m on my feet all day sourc­ing for a shoot.

Karen Tennent kar­ent@con­de­ … A com­fort­able bra. My bra is al­ways the rst thing I take off when I get home, and at least with a com­fort­able one, I can al­most for­get that I’m wear­ing it… al­most.

Spe­cial Projects and Events Man­ager Sarah Tuft saraht@con­de­ … My black leather jacket can be dressed up or down for any oc­ca­sion.

Me­gan Play­ton me­gan@con­de­ … Sim­ple white Tomy takkies are the fash­ion equiv­a­lent of a hug from my mom: they feel like home.

On­line Con­tent Pro­ducer and So­cial Me­dia Ex­ec­u­tive Dan­ica van der Veen dan@con­de­ … Ver­sa­tile chunky boots add an edge to ev­ery­thing. Plus, they’re so com­fort­able that I could (and have) wear them to climb a moun­tain.

Nandi Ndlovu nandi@con­de­ … High-waisted black skin­nies, be­cause they’re at­ter­ing and black is my favourite colour.

Ed­i­to­rial Ex­ec­u­tive Eva-maria Shu­man (JHB) eva@con­de­ … A tan hand­bag from Ur­ban Africa. It goes with ev­ery­thing!

Syn­di­ca­tion Ex­ec­u­tive Les­ley Mathys les­ley@con­de­ … I’m just dis­cov­er­ing the won­der­ful world of sneak­ers. What­ever the weather, they’re per­fect. Show me a pair of adi­das and I’m in love!

Zul­pha Mey­ers zul­pha@con­de­ … My Ca­sio Data­bank watches are clas­sic and com­ple­ment all my out­fits.

Pro­mo­tions As­sis­tant Lauren Wil­liams pro­mo­tions@con­de­ … My skinny jeans, be­cause they re­ally can be worn with any­thing.

Tumi Mo­let­sane tumi@con­de­ … Sweat­pants. A lazy-girl sta­ple that can go from ‘Net ix and chill’ to cool ath­leisure when I need to dash to the shops.

Yolisa Mjamba yolisa@con­de­ … An­kle boots, as I can wear them any­where, in any season and they add some­thing ex­tra to my look.

Ta­nia Du­rand ta­nia@con­de­ … I love any­thing denim, from skirts, jeans and dresses to but­ton-up shirts.

On­line Con­tent Pro­ducer Bernd Fis­cher bernd@con­de­ … A leather jacket is un­der­stated style at its best – over a T-shirt on cool sum­mer nights or lay­ered in win­ter.
