Yay! It is well and truly spring and we couldn’t be happier. We are thinking cute summer dresses and, of course, shoes that scream summer. Call It Spring’s new collection takes us to a forgotten seaside resort and amusement park. The boys skateboard in empty pools and across the promenade while girls play hard-to-get at the arcade, sipping on Slurpees and wearing sorbet-tinted wedges. Don’t you want to be them?

We love the new bags, accessories and shoes available at Call It Spring, which is why we are giving a R500 voucher to one lucky Grazia reader. To stand a chance to win, comment below telling us why you love spring.



Competition closes: Friday September 20

    Spring is always a great time to be alive. For one you don’t feel miserable because of the harsh winter cold, Spring always breathes new life into your experiences. It is bold, colourful and a fresh new way that brings opportunity and new ideas to every thing we do. From the clothing, to the food we eat every thing is born anew in Spring.

  • Natasha Eniye Okah

    Reasons why I love Spring:

    1. Looking forward to the end of winter and the start of warmer weather.The amazing feeling of your sun on your face and being able to get out more.

    2. The mass of daffodils that are so emblematic of spring. Flowers really do add beauty to the environment.

    3.The great feeling of putting away your winter clothes and be able to go out without having to pile on layers.

    5. As spring approaches, we can see the days getting longer.

    6. Being able to shop at Call it Spring.

    7. Being cooped up indoors for what seems like eternity, or almost freezing to death every time you go out, it’s great being able to enjoy going out more. It’s warmer, it’s sunnier, and you can enjoy sitting outdoors.

    8. Spring makes me feel optimistic,enthusiastic,energized and full of plans.
    I like to get out more and be more active. It’s probably the sun affecting our brain chemistry, but spring makes me want to do so many things!

  • Nicola Meyer

    I love Spring for the blue skies, beautiful flowers and the casting off of the Winter blues

  • Cassy

    Spring is the most beautiful and colourful time of year. The weather is that perfect combination of warm and breezy, and the seasons fashion is fun, feminine and full of life – the patterns, colours, florals, styles, frills – there is no other time quite like it. Spring is when the earth breaths life into the air, leaving everybody refreshed and ready for anything.

  • Chelsea E Britz

    The chill of winter leaves us with the fresh spring air. Spring is just lovely and happy and bright and fun. Spring is laughing and dancing and sitting in the soft sunlight. Spring means my dresses and skirts can come out of hibernation and my sunnies and bright nail polish can come out of retirement.

    Spring is pure bliss! Its a time where anything can happen, a time for new beginnings. Somehow when the weathers this perfect, the food tastes better, the wine much crisper and the company of family and friends more memorable. Its a season that uplifts and motivates. The colours and bursts of freshness begin to emulate in everything we do and everywhere you go.

  • Wiedaad Adonis

    the air is so clean,
    Gotta love the spring

    could make me sing
    more than the flowers
    and the sun showers
    and that’s if i could win
    win with a big grin

    spring is the time for creativity, time to get out of your comfort zone and experiment with different colors, shades, and prints. Spring also brings out a certain vibe in everyone where you just want to go out and meet new people do exciting things. I just love spring.

  • Samantha

    Spring is personal to me. It is symbolic of preparation and transformation of the mind and the heart; evident in the careful planning that goes into our wardrobes, look and style. Spring is a confidence booster. It lifts up our spirits and builds our self-image (the way we see ourselves). It gives us mornings to look forward to and promises life and prosperity. It influences how we dress and what we wear – pretty pastels, fab florals, all things bright and beautiful. Fashion is not just about what we wear; it’s about reflecting what we feel on the inside. Spring is optimistic and when we feel good we tend to want to look good. That’s why I love Spring.

  • Heidi Visser

    Loving the smell of jasmine & fruit blossoms in the air! There surely can be no other place like SA, and more specifically JHB in spring time! How amazing are the sunsets right now?! Weekends are spent wining & dining outside, savoring all this gorgeous nature beauty, with a strappy dress and some strappy sandals or heels! Aah – what a life we live! Love SPRING!

  • samantha-jane samaai
