image source: afterDRK One of the first things I sacrificed when tackling the ambitious task of fitting my entire wardrobe into two (!!) suitcases, were a number of my cumbersome, woollen winter knits. The soft cosy kinds which envelope you in warmth on the crispest of winter days. My justification? The lack of a ‘real’ […]

Wishlist: Alexander Wang ‘Manuel’ heels

Alexander Wang ‘Manuel’ mary-jane heels There isn’t much logic behind it, but I can’t help but want for a pair of Alexander Wang’s pastel toned platform mary-janes, regardless of the fact that I don’t quite have anywhere to wear them. And it appears I’m not the only one, considering how few options (and sizes for […]

What I’m wishing for this Christmas

by jamie-lee on November 30, 2013, 2 comments

With Christmas little more than three weeks away, and all those Thanksgiving sales becoming increasingly enticing, my running ‘wishlist’ has blown out more than ever. This year, it’s all about the small luxuries in life; floral scented aromas, a supple lambswool scarf (any colour will suffice), a monogrammed leather clutch, and a gold rimmed mug […]

shopping for winter coats

Topshop wide collar pea coat I know how difficult it can be to find a coat for winter, so when I come across a style I like, I’m pretty quick to add it to my wardrobe, within reason of course. Considering how few coats I actually own, you can imagine that this doesn’t happen very […]

coming up roses

Florals for Spring seem like a bit of a no-brainer, but somewhere along the line I seem to have missed the memo since the closest thing I have to floral is Marant’s take on a paisley-esque print. With new collections starting to drop in stores at a rapid pace, I’ve been keeping my eye out […]

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 […]

On my wishlist: Sass & Bide Talara sunglasses

Sass & Bide “Talara” sunglasses While I’m not exactly in the market for a new pair of sunglasses, if I was, I’d probably be stalking this pair of Sass & Bide Talara’s. I can’t help but be drawn to tortoiseshell sunglasses, and the simple yet seemingly complementary style is what really sells it for me. […]

Joie ‘Felix’ top, T by Alexander Wang stripe t-shirt, Vince textured v-neck sweater Summer has officially begun in New Zealand, which can only mean one thing: summer wardrobe planning. I continuously seem to gear myself toward a wardrobe with a summer focus, which is odd considering the mostly mild to almost non-existent summers we get […]
