I love Alice McCALL!

Honestly, I do. I can hand on heart say that I seriously love every single piece that comes out of the Alice McCall design studio. Oh yes, every little Australian droplet of urban, boho brilliance is a welcome addition to my Walk-in-Wardrobe. Especially this smashing, slightly-smockish wee number that comes in a rather flattering shade of apricot. Maybe this love affair has something to do with our shared initals, A.M?

Any point in Reinventing the Wheel?

There's definitely point in Reinventing the Wheel if you're talking about the new range from kick-ass NZ streetwear label Lower. It's packed with dynamite new prints, a scattering of this season's shade of denim and a sprinkling of uber-cute printed leggings. The icing on the cake though? A collection of gorgeous wee day-dresses. As you know, my penchant for frocks often gets the better of me and this was certainly the case when I popped into Lower's flagship store Thanks while I was in Mt Maunganui in the weekend.

Chanel is forever...

Fashion's most iconic personality Coco Chanel has been thrust into the limelight on quite a few occasions of late thanks to an array of movies and books. Glorious little tidbits created to remind us all of her unsurpassed, influential role within fashion history and the latest edition to this enjoyable homage collection is due to hit shelves this month; Justine Picardie's Coco Chanel. The legend and the Life.
Hence why I thought I'd throw on a little Chanel and strut it like the lady intended.

This raw edged and rather youthful ensembled can be credited to the man at the helm of contemporary Chanel: Karl Lagerfield and his epic 88 piece show in Paris recently.

Top Shop Unique to The Department Store

Top Shop gear has proven to be an absolute smash amongst Kiwi lasses, so much so that the clever cats at The Department Store made a call earlier in the year to bring out a few pieces from the 
fantastic Top Shop Unique collection.
This is a seasonal range that has a little bit more "jusgh" than the regular pieces and the collections tend to tie together more conceptually rather than being just trend focused. 
The first few bits landed in Takapuna last Friday, so I of course made a bee-line over there straight away.
Tulle frocks never looked so cool.
