Deus Ex Machina

Now I'm not normally a motorcyle fan, but when I discovered the Deus Ex Machina Warehouse tucked away in a (once was) run down shed at the bottom of Wellesley Street I was pleasantly surprised even pretty blown away.  The renovated warehouse or 'Shed 5' as it's known is a cafe, clothing store and of course a showroom of motorcycles for the enthusiasts.  Whether you want a relaxing coffee in a funky setting or you're browsing for that quality biker jacket this is the hip place to go.  http://www.deus.com.au/

One teaspoon of cool please......

Another great Aussie label, that's right, One Teaspoon .  A 10-piece range was created in 2000 and it wasn't long before the celebs in the US were sporting this fashion forward label.  Now being stocked in Top Shop London, the One Teaspoon collections are a must see (and must buy)!  Loving the leopard print and 'rough around the edge' feel of these pics below.

Wedding cake anyone?


I thought seeing as it was wedding season this would be appropriate, a wedding cake dress.  Not sure how she is meant to walk in it however, perhaps she sits on a trailer - almost like in a street parade??  Up the aisle???  No problem with running out of cake for the reception!

Copper wrap earrings, $15 a pair, sized to suit. Email me at fashionfairground@gmail.com


"Incu presents Topshop or Flopshop perhaps?"

As you may have read in a previous post, I was recently in Sydney and well, as you can imagine I was keen as mustard to get to Top Shop having just heard that it finally got the thumbs up to open in Paddington.  Excitement quickly turned to disappointment as I walked into the designer filled Incu Boutique who got the go ahead to partner with Topshop.  Approximately five racks of clothing (I must admit it was a small space), over-priced, a lack of  variety and colour,  not one thing jumped out at me - far from my Top Shop experiences in London.  They say the two profiles fit well, I beg to differ.  Top Shop was never positioned as a high-end designer led brand, will be interesting to see how it goes. 

In the mean time we still get to shop online straight from the main source and have it shipped right to us here in little old NZ!

What a brilliant idea!

I've been hearing good things about this place, must make a note to venture over the Shore soon.   Located in Takapuna this store contains a collection of  designers all under the one roof.  Karen Walker, Stephen Marr, Simon James, Flotsam & Jetsam... how exciting!  A great mix of fashion, beauty, architecture and interiors - just what the doctor ordered:)  One thing you might want to check out is this fab Karen Walker 'Dada' dress on sale now at $135 down from $255... great deal!  Get in quick though, sale is on for 3 weeks only and knowing her stuff it will sell out pretty quickly.  http://www.thedepartmentstore.co.nz/
