Come along to The Marr Factory 2013.

Posted on August 15, 2013

All right all right, if you’re in Auckland you’ve probably already heard about The Marr Factory. It’s a little bit like a mini in-season fashion week that is happening the week prior to New Zealand Fashion Week (#awkwardlol). It’s put on by Stephen Marr & Courvoisier and the shows are held nightly starting Sunday 25 August at Golden Dawn in Ponsonby. The designers showing are Karen Walker, Zambesi, NOM*d, Helen Cherry & Workshop and Kate Sylvester, so whatever night you go (if you decide to get a ticket) is going to be top notch New Zealand fashun. At last years you got a drink and a pretty good goodie bag, as well as food. There were mini fancy burgers on one of the nights.  So…

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…

Carhartt WIP S/S 2013: I only want to dress like this.

Posted on February 14, 2013

I have no definite ‘style’. When people tell me they ‘like my style’ or ask me to ‘define my style’, I never really know what to say because I honestly have no idea. I don’t even think I have one, let alone one that people should like. I wear a mix of all sorts of different things and can never stick to one way of dressing. Dressing like a boy is the only exception to the above. While it may be passé and more recently I’ve been liking wearing ‘girly clothes’ (because sometimes wearing boys clothes just makes you feel… well, like a boy), it’s one of the few looks that I am almost guaranteed to like, no matter how overdone and outdated it…

Get Low at Rakinos tonight.

Posted on October 24, 2012

Tonight marks the first of what I hope to be a fun fortnightly party. Get Low (get it?! GET IT?! Oh shush I know you’re smiling inside) is hosted by myself and Imogen O’Neill (The Creators), and together with Converse and Rakinos we’re out to provide a good ol’ Wednesday night party to ease you into Summer. So… What can I entice you with? Well, tonight is the first one so we’re going all out. We’ve got drink specials (including Asahi and the ‘Get Low’ cocktail – a garden party in a glass that may as well be called the ‘Get Drunk’ (by the way, if you’re under 18 please avert your eyes)) and free drinks for special people (hint: wear Chucks), food for those…
