Stella McCartney ‘lips’ sweatshirt (also available here), OPI nailpolish in ‘Kiss on the Chic’, Aesop hand balm, Karen Walker x Benah sloane satchel (in navy or burgundy) Every girl needs at least one sweatshirt in her closet right?

With multiple festive themed gatherings behind me, I’ve managed to make it through the week relatively unscathed, although well in need of a quiet weekend. For me, I’m looking forward to curling up with the latest copy of the Gentlewoman, and reuniting with these Karen Walker ‘trixie’ sunglasses. After misplacing them while in Auckland two […]

Do I or don’t I? The Alexander Wang ‘Marion’ bag

by jamie-lee on October 30, 2013, 6 comments

Alexander Wang ‘marion’ bag Perhaps one of the biggest thrills of shopping online is when the parcel finally arrives in your mailbox. You tear the package open, and inside is just what you were looking for, perfection personified; or something like it. But sometimes, your excitement is met with sheer disappointment, where expectations are not […]

Benah x Karen Walker

ph. by Sonny Vandevelde There’s no denying that I have long been a Karen Walker girl. Her Wellington store has seen my card swiped more times than I care to remember, since my first purchase there ten years ago. And while I’ve always been a fan of classic Karen, there’s an alluring property in her […]

On cameras, lenses, and future additions

by jamie-lee on September 18, 2013, 10 comments

Growing up, I was always one of those children who was fascinated by cameras. I wanted to be the one to click the button, taking seemingly artistic shots until I heard that ‘clicking’ sound that indicated that the film was at its end. Waiting two hours to see the results seemed like torture, but only […]

Searching for sunglasses

I doubt it’s any secret by now that I’m not overly fond of winter. I spend the majority of those three cold winter months scouring the internet for sandals, sleeveless blouses, swimsuits and sunglasses, all the while daydreaming of clear skies and sandy beaches. This year, I’m getting a head start on my summer wishlist […]

/commes des f*down

source 1 | 2 | 3 A few months on, and the fashion parody tees, sweatshirts and caps still seem to be as ubiquitous as ever. It’s part tongue-in-cheek, and partly mischievous; I mean, imitation is the highest form of flattery after all. And while I’m not usually one for profanities, these beanies poking a […]

/in my wardrobe: marc by marc jacobs katie turnlock bracelet

Marc by Marc Jacobs exploded apocalyptic katie bracelet in silver and gold If you go back through most of my outfit posts, there’s generally a recurring theme when it comes down to the jewellery. The same bracelets, the same few necklaces, and the same rings, almost always. More often than not on my left wrist […]

ASOS black leather cap (available on: AU website | US website | UK website) / img src 1 | 2 | 3 The ‘sports luxe’ look is by no means a new trend, but it’s one that I’m starting to warm up to, as usual, well after everyone else. I’ve tried on a few caps […]

/first look: Elisabeth Kwan leather goods

by jamie-lee on April 30, 2013, 11 comments

I’m always impressed when I meet someone who is truly passionate about turning their dream into reality, a virtue which in my experience, has been present in the many people I’ve met whose main area of interest or employment has been on the more creative side. Fortuitously timed during Wellington Fashion Week, I was introduced […]
