Out and about in Therese Rawsthorne

A day of shopping spent lapping up all the post-Christmas bargains and lunching with the girls called for this sexy-yet-practical Therese Rawsthorne outfit. The flat shoes made it easy to put in several solid hours conquering the retail jungle, while the metallic skirt added an appropriate amount of sheen to the whole affair.

Zac Posen for Christmas

The tree is up, the twinkling lights are shining and the presents are waiting patiently. However... I am a little ashamed to say that I have already ripped into one of my gifts! It was a matter of urgency and there was no other solution...  I had a very swanky party last night and nothing new to wear. But from simply squeezing the beautifully wrapped secret treat, I knew it was a Zac Posen gown from the 2011 Resort Ready-to-Wear range and that this was an opportunity not to be missed!

Hi There Sailor Girl

A sailor went to sea sea sea, to see what he could see see see, and all that he could see see see... was a cute mouse in super hot sailor get-up from NZ's beloved Karen Walker and her Hi There range.
I wore this ensemble during the weekend when I was out Christmas shopping. I'm not entirely sure it helped though as I came home with a bundle of new outfits for me and hardly anything for anyone else! Never fear though, I'm not a selfish mouse - I went straight to my lappy and began an emergency session of online festive purchasing.

Party Season!

In the world of fashion there are many seasons (including those identified by the weather!) but one of the most vibrant and chaotic ones favoured by clothes-ponies is the build up to Christmas!  I have to admit this "silly" season is largely to blame for my lack of interaction, but please rest assured that I have been making the most of each occasion and wearing some fantastic numbers that just don't get a chance to shine throughout the year.
A personal fave is this Viktor and Rolf cocktail frock that I wore to a very private shindig last night... and I can tell you there's no better time to wear flowers on your feet than a smokin' hot summer night during Party Season.
