The Designer Collection at NZFW 2010

Stoked to be offered a VIP ticket last night to The Design Collection show at NZFW.   As the name suggests over 50 designer labels hit the catwalk including Huffer, Brady, Sable & Minx, Cybele, Hailwood to name a few.  Outfits were a mixture of current season and previews of some winter 2011 pieces.   My favourites were Zambesi, Juliette Hogan,  Twentysevennames, and NomD.  Quite suprisingly I really liked Treslise Cooper whose outfits were more funky than her typical frilly and flowery numbers.

BTW annoyingly my camera died after the drinks so unfortunately I can't show you any of my own pics from last night. But here is a taste from Stolen Girlfriends Club.

American Apparel full length skirt pleeeease

Just wanted to show you my next summer purchase, it's this beautifully floaty, full length skirt made of chiffon by American Apparel.  I hunted high and low online to find out where this skirt originated from!  AA have a great collection of basics, as well as skirts, blouses, leggings etc.  I'd always thought they stocked simple cotton tees and sports wear - but no!  Check out their site here.

Auckland say hi to Sass & Bide!

My all-time favourite store has arrived in Auckland, and right on my door step in Ponsonby.  I'm absolutely loving this seasons graphic and tribals prints and have already been in there to hunt out a purchase or two!
