HOLY CHIC STUDIOS

Sunday, 21 December 2014 | Comments: 0
Being the girl that's always on the hunt for new, affordable, fresh, high quality New Zealand labels, Holy Chic fit right into that lookout. What makes it even better? I'm all up for the cheeky puns. It's clear to people around me that you won't get by a conversation with me without me mentioning the driest pun you'll ever hear. I'm not sure who came up with this name 'Holy Chic', but I say genius. The face of Holy Chic, Maia Cotton (62/Chic/Ford), resembles the fun, teenage person we all are inside and I think the clothing reflects just that. There are pieces in this collection that I wouldn't exactly wear, but there are pieces that I would wear every day if I can - that's what makes this label what it is, something for everyone, whether that's in the style aspect, or the budget aspect. The pieces start at NZD$29 all the way up to $195 - As I said, something for everyone. Holy Chic can be found at The CO-OP located at 8 Northcroft Street, Takapuna (Next to The Department Store) and online. Take a look at my favourite pieces from this label, styled, modelled and edited by yours truly.

MICHAEL HILL JEWELLERY

Wednesday, 17 December 2014 | Comments: 0
Sometimes when life throws you pressure, it's nice to gift someone something - to see someone's face light up when you're feeling down, or to be more realistic, it's nice to buy something for yourself. I've always done this, I find every excuse to buy jewellery whether that's for an 'graduation present to myself', 'birthday present to myself' or 'new years present to myself'. I guess it's not the best way to go for my bank account, but it makes my heart sing. Another excuse, but I'm not complaining. Something I've also noticed lately is my friends or followers asking how to style their jewellery with their outfits, so let me show you what you can do with silver, gold and black jewellery and what type of outfits you can wear with it. There are some pieces I have to have on my hand/wrist when I go out; 3 essential pieces. The bracelet, the ring and the watch. When Michael Hill reached out to me, I couldn't help but jump on the opportunity to do this blog post for them. 2 years in a row, I've bought my friend her presents from Michael Hill. Let me tell you something, she cried for every one, that made her heart sing. Michael Hill Jewellery can be found, practically anywhere. Albany Westfield here in Auckland, Takapuna has just opened one up and you can even find it online - get it delivered right to your door.

WEARINGS ON: 101214

Wow, these past posts have all been me, me and oh, me. Though that's the beauty about having your own blog, you can post what ever you want. I found myself reaching for warmer clothes lately, partly because I feel a cold coming on, and Auckland weather has been especially unpredictable. For example, it was bright and sunny this afternoon and now as I'm typing this, rain has struck - which isn't very good for the races going on today. Any who, this is my outfit today - wearing Nom*D, Dolce & Gabbana, Glassons and ASOS. Full outfit details below, as always. 

CAN'T PREDICT THE WEATHER

Monday, 8 December 2014 | Comments: 0
It's a known fact that we can't predict the weather, but even if I do my best to check the weather report the day before, it's never right. I can't predict the weather, so I can't judge what I should wear for the day especially in the early mornings. Mornings could be raining and cold, afternoons could turn to a Summers dream - That clearly happened a few days ago when I wore this outfit. Way too hot, but I still liked it nevertheless. The good thing about wearing black is the illusion of making you look taller, which is exactly what I need for my 161cm short ass. I wore this outfit twice and I still can't get enough of it. Mesh is a great way to wear lots of black, without looking conservative or feeling too warm - not that there's anything wrong with that, but fully covering yourself doesn't do you very well during Summer time, unless you want to get a heat stroke, then be my guest (Don't do that).

EDT. #4 BY GLASSONS

Tuesday, 2 December 2014 | Comments: 0
It's rare for me to say this and you'll probably only hear my saying this 3 times a year; This collection is perfect. In every single aspect. I got a press release before the collection launched and I couldn't believe my eyes (I don't even know how I got onto the Glassons media list?). I immediately wrote down what I wanted to style without hesitation, didn't even know if they'd let me borrow the pieces but thankfully they did because student life isn't the way to go when you're wanting to style clothes. I've put together 5 of my favourite pieces, the pieces I will slowly buy as I work through the Summer holidays. If you haven't seen the pieces from the Glassons Edt. #4 collection, hurry - I'm pretty sure they'll sell out fast. Big ups to the Design Manager, Kiriana Petterson, you've made this girl- and every girl in NZ & Australia- very happy. The collection was inspired by Pacific's early explorers and can be found in selected Glassons stores. If you're in Auckland, the Edt. 4 collection can be found at Queens Street, Newmarket or online (Evelina (Clyne) as the model, sold me more on the collection than it already has). The name of the pieces I'm wearing will be at the bottom of the post. (Edt. 4 is a limited edition collection, so get in quick before you miss out!)
