At the risk of sounding repetitive, here are some more photos from that Dungaree shoot.

Posted on March 25, 2013

At the risk of sounding repetitive and boring, I bring to you a few b-roll shots from The Dungaree Club shoot we did a couple of weeks back. James needed to finish a roll of film so he took a few extra shots on his r6.2. The results are quite beautiful. These are some of my favourites, and there are more of his favourites on his blog here.

RUBY’s ‘An Education’ capsule collection drops this Friday. Here’s what it looks like.

Posted on March 13, 2013

Remember when that guy Evan Tetreault was in town a couple of months ago? … Yeah, well, fricken go back and read the post already then. He was here, all the way from Boston where he’s based right now. While he was here he shot a little lookbook and campaign for RUBY‘s latest 60s inspired capsule collection, ‘An Education’. I got to pop along, partly because I was Evan’s ride there, and partly because hello, of course I wanted to see the range. It is really, really cute. Drawstring printed pants, cute dresses – I’m feeling the one above (also in black, below) for some kind of party – it’s definitely a party dress, tops with sleeve ruffles, it’s all good. So, this range.…

The Dungaree Club.

Posted on March 5, 2013

There’s no denying that there’s a bit of an overall trend right now – longs, shorts, skirts, you name it, people are loving it. So, in celebration of this all-in-one trend, last week myself and a couple of others took to one of the local high schools surrounding my home with several pairs of dungarees in tow. We got some of the new kids on the block – four suitably Mean Girls-esque new face girls: Emma and Jennifer from Nova, Renee and Zara from Clyne, paired them up with some of the new season’s dungaree offerings and voila! The Dungaree Club was formed:

Karen Walker showed A/W 2013 ‘New Rose’ a week ago, I’m still obsessed.

Posted on February 18, 2013

I want to be a Karen Walker girl. There you go. Unabashedly and without shame, I want to be one of these girls. I feel like this most seasons when I see the runway images from Karen’s New York Fashion Week shows, and this time is no different. In fact, this season – Northern Hemisphere Autumn-Winter 2013 – the desire to be that cool, long-haired, quirky-casual girl is at its peak. I’m coveting a lot from this collection, ‘New Rose’ – the oversized trenches, dark green knits, black and white tartan and brown tweeds and the pink floral (is it floral?) everything – especially the quilted coat. The full-legged pants look amazing (perhaps not on a short girl like me, but on these girls…

Huffer A/W 2013: Uphill Battles.

Posted on February 11, 2013

I received these Huffer campaign shots in my inbox this morning. They’re the follow up to that video I posted last week. I haven’t seen the Autumn/Winter collection in person yet, but by the looks of things, it’s bound to be a goodie. Some of these shots are mind-blowing. I’m not allowed to disclose where exactly these were taken within New Zealand (*cough* South Island *cough*), but I can tell you that Ryan Kenny shot it, Zara Mirkin styled it and Ella Verberne, Callum Smith and Matt Hall took on the duty of models in the wilderness. My favourites below. This collection starts dropping this week so keep an eye out:

I still love Lily Donaldson.

Posted on January 30, 2013

Lily Donaldson has officially been on this earth for 26 years (as of three days ago). In model years, she’s pushing it. She’s no longer the model of the moment, but like any true star, longevity is key and a decade after being scouted, she’s still working. I have been a fan throughout the whole lifespan of this blog (four years in March), and even before then. Those of you who have stuck with me throughout the years may remember an insurgence of Lily-Donaldson-fan-girl type posting back in 2009/2010 which has since waned (partially due to the fact that I think people were getting sick of it, partially because it got a bit creepy) but you shouldn’t take that as a reflection of my lack…
