Hi, I’m Lauren Magnus, owner of Kitted.
A shopaholic living the “wife-life” in Durban, South Africa. I work from my home (well, an office attached to my home) where I live with my hubby, Scott, and our little homie, Colton (he’s our dog but also co-incidentally, my husband’s bestie).
I qualified as an English teacher and have been teaching high school English for the past 4 years. I was always doing personal shopping for friends and family on the side during my teaching career as shopping has always been my unwavering passion. I used to shop after work and on the weekends, until I got too busy to keep up and I realised that I wanted to do this full time. Now I run Kitted: a personal shopping and styling business that allows me to shop for and style people all day long – my absolute dream job.
I fell in love with fashion at an early age, but in a different way than most. I didn’t fall in love with it because of what was trending or what was popular, I fell in love with style!
The way that style is timeless, ageless and limitless and accessible to everybody. I wanted to be the one to help people find the best style for them. Fashions will come and go, but great style will always be fashionable! Style is different for every individual, and my mission is to help you find the best style for you.
My approach to personal shopping and styling is one that is completely relaxed, this is a fun experience. There’s absolutely no reason why shopping should ever be painful – and if it has been for you so far…you need me!
There’s something completely magical about watching a person put on an outfit that they love and seeing their personality transform right before your very eyes. Everybody deserves to feel beautiful, and that’s what I’m here to do: to help make you the absolute best version of yourself.
I have a range of clients that use for me for many different reasons: some are simply too busy to shop, others hate shopping and don’t want to even step foot into a shopping centre, others are looking for a new look because they feel like a change, some need my help with choosing what style/look suits them best, and some are just looking for a great outfit for a certain event. Whatever your reason is for using Kitted – let me help you. Let me make your life easier and get you looking completely gorgeous.
