Wishlist: Warmer days


As the days get warmer I am already dreaming of swimwear, soft layering and bare legs. Can you tell what my favourite season is.

Some classic pieces and even some trans-seasonal ones on my wish list.

Zippora Seven X Model Maison Shot by Cybele Malinowski.

We love supporting Kiwi models and as soon as I saw one of my favourites Zippora Seven shot for Oyster Magazine I new I would have to share.

Shot in her own home (at current) in Bondi by Cybele Malinowski for Model Maison. Dressed in her own clothing and in her natural environment Zippy never fails to impress.

Also of note the incredible photographer Cybele Malinowski shoots models in their homes for her site Model Maison to feed our facination. It is beautifully done and well worth a look. Check it out here.

How incredible does this multi talented Kiwi look. Natalie Cantell is a Model, fashion editor, recreational yogi (LOVE) and would be musician.  I recently saw her featured on Witchery blog showing off the latest Winter looks (amazing, definitely have a look). Originally from the City of Sails, Auckland she now spends her time between Sydney, New York and the South of France. It was her platinum blonde locks and natural style that captivated my attention. Natalie is one to watch!

A touch of lace



This has to be my  favourite look I go back to time and time again. One baggy boyfriend singlet and one lacy soft cup. The combination of androgynous with a peak of feminine is what does it for me.

My favourite singlet for this look is from General Pants (mine is worn to death, think I will be stocking up on a few soon). As for the negligee you can’t go wrong with Lonely Lingerie, there are many I adore (colours are incredible) Anouk underwire bra, Sabel two strap bra, Stella McCartney Clara Whispering underwire bra, Elle Macpherson For You underwire bra.

What are your thoughts on showing a peak of lace?

I am in awe of this undone perfection that is Lonely Hearts Seon. The new range is captured with beautiful soft and real styling.

You can’t get better than natural light especially that of a bedroom window. Loving the bright colours, cutouts and that lace.

The latest capping for Karen Walker Eyewear featuring some rather special people. Karen Walker has teamed up with the Ethical Fashion Initiative to help bring business to Africa. Her latest range not only features Sunglass cases made by micro-artisans of  Africa, she has also used them in the campaign. They include machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers and metal workers as well as members of the Maasai group who create the more elaborate beading work.

Absolutely stunning campaign.
