Fuji Instax snaps from the opening night.

This title is self-explanatory but I’ll go into a bit more detail. Basically, Twenty-seven Names is one of my favourite New Zealand brands. There hasn’t been a collection where I haven’t fallen in love with at least three pieces. I still wear one of first pieces I ever bought from them (which was about 4 years ago). Needless to say I was pretty pleased to hear that Anjali and Rachel were opening a second New Zealand store (their first is in Wellington) in my home town, Auckland.

The little shop sits somewhere near the Devonport Chocolate shop and the WORLD Beauty store on Ponsonby Road. Ponsonby is going off these days, I swear I have never had so much trouble parking in Ponsonby than I have this last couple of months. I digress. The point I’m trying to make is that the girls have opened a great shop in a great space in a thriving suburb and you should all check it out. The address is 177 Ponsonby Road and all you have to look out for is the really great sign they have out front and the beautiful interior (the girls did the whole fit-out themselves (with the help of their boyfriends) and it’s pretty impressive):

The store is stocking a large selection of their current Winter collection and for all the people who have been asking me about the ‘Lost Jockey’ coat (that I have in the camel colour), they re-cut it so you can get it now if you want! (Note: it’s slightly oversized.) Same with the really awesome Bella Cape Trench (pictured below with the Rene Shift Dress).
