Its this kind of campaign that rails me. Soooooo seductive. Hot-horse Sophia Coppola has directed the latest ad campaign for a collaborative range between the fashion house of Marni and high street megastar H & M. And boy does it look gooooood. It has it all - Marrakesh, retro sun-soaked backing track, delicious eye-makeup, warm… Continue reading Watch: Seductive Marni at H & M
Love the idea of these - two in one shoe, a ballet flat and a stiletto. Wear them out for the night and just pack away the heels when you've had enough. Or, wear the flats to work and slip on the heels for some clubbing. Clever. They have some eco-credentials, using some recycled and… Continue reading Shoe evolution
So I like Ascot Friday, as a style blog - she thrifts a lot, reuses a lot, remakes a lot and then looks HOT in the lot. And I am sure if I took a piece of fabric out of my stash and put two armholes in it, and wore it under a cardy, I'd… Continue reading Hmmmm…
Feet firmly on Planet Earth
Starfish Clothing stock some mean labels. Obviously their own fine work, as well as other great green stuff - such as the brilliant kowtow clothing and Terra Plana shoes. I saw on their facebook page though, that this is Terra Plana's last season. Tear. So should you be needing some new shoes for winter, nah… Continue reading Feet firmly on Planet Earth
Awesome. VVVintage take vintage clothes, and through upcycling them with designers transform them into some new glory. They are working with Oxfam, using some of their stash, and returning 10% profit back to them too, and international shipping is free should you want to partake in some of their splendid treats. This kind of re-imagining… Continue reading VVVintage
Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step Three: Shoes
Onto shoes. I am no Imelda Marcos when it comes to shoes. I have struggled buying ethically made shoes in the past, and so apart from a few pairs, the rest of these guys were bought second hand. And I dont know - buying shoes second-hand just ain't as enticing somehow. Hence my modest collection of 34… Continue reading Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step Three: Shoes
Oh happy day!
Most Wanted Vintage, the cracker jack store for all vintage treasures found in Aro Valley, Wellington has just launched an online shop. Go have a gander, especially if you are homebound or provincial - you'll thank me for the mainline to the good stuff.
Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step Two: Scarves
So, sorting out my scarves were a breeze. I knew I had heaps of these suckers and boy was I right. But as I normally keep them stuffed in a bowling bag I never see exactly how many. Soooooo, with a drum roll, here is my scarf collection before the cull. I had to take… Continue reading Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step Two: Scarves
Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step One: Dresses
Okay. So before we begin I suggest you pop back a couple of posts, and read about this guy. He owns a couple of handful of things and seems genuinely pleased to do so. It challenged me. A lot. I subscribe to many of the measures of sustainable living and I do feel virtuous in… Continue reading Downsize me/The Wardrobe diet. Step One: Dresses
The most expensive t-shirt in the world
Is this for real? It looks as though they sell nothing else, and there in only one image of the t-shirt on their website. And really? £256,500. Wow. I did a google for the company who make them, Superlative Luxury, and got nadda. Is it a high-end Nigerian bank account scam? A piece of satirical art?… Continue reading The most expensive t-shirt in the world
