Average disposable income in Pretoria is well below R21 000 per month - how far below I do not know. More than 60% of the people live below the poverty line and earn less than R200 per day.
Accommodation in city centre is cheap in comparison to other areas like Hatfield, Menlyn, Brooklyn etc. which is less than 5km away from the city centre. However when you get further to the outskirts such as Silverlakes it is 4 times as much, but in Mamelodi (same distance form city centre as Silverlakes) it is about a third of the price in city centre.

Maybe I don't know what a summer dress is. But Mr Price which is the the most popular chain store doesn't have dresses more than R199.

The cost of an apartment in Pretoria also varies dramatically depending on location.
From R800 a month to R10000 for a 1 bedroom apartment.
