ASOS grey tank, Topshop skinny jeans, T by Alexander Wang cardigan, Alexander Wang emile tote, Celine heels (similar), Marc by Marc Jacobs katie bracelet, Karen Walker necklaces In addition to my recently imposed shopping ban, I’ve decided to undertake a small personal project – the thirty for thirty challenge.

unlikely favourites

Glassons peplum top, Karen Walker cardigan, 3.1 by Phillip Lim leopard skirt, J Crew glitter belt, Topshop loafers, Proenza Schouler PS11 bag Doubtless you will have seen me wear something like this before, but I’m far from one to shy away from the familiar. Ironically this peplum top has already seen more wear than I […]

New in: Miu Miu bejewelled flats

Miu Miu bejewelled ballet flats I first spotted these gorgeous ballet flats last year while in transit. I couldn’t resist the jewel embellished toe, and of course decided that I had to have them. Unfortunately, at the time, they had sold out of my size, so I popped the idea of ever buying them in […]

relying on the weather

3.1 by Phillip Lim dress, T by Alexander Wang cardigan, Country Rd socks, Beau Coop x Karen Walker shoes, Karen Walker necklace and bracelet Lately, I’ve been finding myself manically checking the upcoming weather forecast in the hope that I can continue to leave the house in bare legs, and start pulling out my skirts […]

Two things that I never leave the house without. A wallet that on its own is good enough to function as a small pouch, and a iPhone case which has allowed my phone to survive the many times that I’ve let it slip from my fingers. I’d be pretty happy if I could take Max […]

comparing opposites

KW brocade skirt & blazer, Glassons peplum top (similar), Charlotte Olympia kitty flats, Alexander Wang emile tote Still toting the tote, which has become a semi-permanent fixture on my arm due to the sheer amount of things that I can fit in here. Having become accustomed to smaller bags, I had forgotten how much one […]

I’m thinking it’s time for a shopping ban

Zara linen t-shirt, 3.1 by Phillip Lim skirt, Country Rd blazer (similar), Witchery embellished flats, Alexander Wang emile tote, Diva necklace, Marc by Marc Jacobs bolt bracelet I’ve decided. I’m officially on a shopping ban. I’m not sure for how long, and I anticipate that I will allow myself the odd concession, but after somehow […]

weekend comings and goings

Karen Walker dress and coat, Ashley Fogel jumper, Alexander Wang kori oxfords and emile tote, Mimco ‘starlight’ necklace Over the weekend I caught up with my girl Nina for a bit of post-New Zealand Fashion Week catch-up and to check out the Kathryn Wilson pop-up shoebox. As luck would have it, we bumped into the […]

changing tastes

Karen Walker dress, Helmut Lang blazer, Charlotte Olympia shoes It occurred to me the other day, how seldom I wear dresses in comparison with a few short years ago, when I would sub-consciously reach for them each morning, throwing an oversized cardigan over the top and calling it a day. Now, I probably opt for […]

Alexander Wang ‘emile’ tote After hunting high and low for this bag in the black pebbled leather with rose gold hardware, I found I had luck on my side, as a special order came through for me on Net-a-Porter. Finally I’m able to retire my considerably worn yet much-loved MBMJ patent leather tote in favour […]
