Lindi Kingi swag

Image: Katherine Lowe

The only actual physical mail we seem to get these days are bills, bills, bills (*sings*can you pay my bills?). So, I was pretty excited when I got a lil package containing goodies from Lindi Kingi Design in the mail box. See that photo above? That’s me, wearing x2 Lindi Kingi necklaces, because a) I’m one of those people who has to wear everything new that I’ve gotten all at once, straight away and b) I’m terribly indecisive and couldn’t choose between the two. I also got THE cutest python skin coin purse. As well as harboring coins, it’s now become the home for lipstick and hair-ties. As it happens, I was checking the site today and noticed Lindi Kingi is now selling on my all time fave store, ASOS. Choice!

Fashion Fest – the d00ds

It’s been all about the ladies round these parts lately, but I’m here to make amends. Here’s a lil tribute to some of the menswear shown over Fashion Festival week. Something for everyone here I reckon, especially if you’re into camo, smart suits, leather accents, letterman jackets and gingerbread men. Yes, I said gingerbread men, what of it?

Fashion Fest – Final Day

The above photo was my favourite moment on the catwalk during Friday’s final show, I think I sighed a little as the model turned to reveal the drop-back of her stunning Liam dress. Friday night’s show easily had the most sex appeal, and not just because it began with models in lingerie. It was more a elegant and dark, brooding sort of sexy, rather than the overt kind. The colour injected into Jimmy D and Zambesi was stunning, the ankle strap heels in Liam caught my eye and, let’s be honest, the fact there were a lot more fellas on the catwalk than previous nights didn’t go unappreciated, but more on them later…

Fashion Fest Day 4 – #latepass

Huffer

The Thursday and Friday night shows were by far the best of the week. Thursday night definitely had more of a playful vibe, the collections were largely street, with so much I could see myself wearing. I’m all about that Sylvester polka dot playsuit and those Workshop neon sunnies. I’m kinda looking forward to it being cold enough to wear one of those cute grey Huffer beanies too. Actually, it kinda IS cold enough now. Yay?

fashion makes you hungry

Nikau, Maddy & Katherine

The stomach rumbling began around the time Viva’s eating out editor, Nici Wikes, started talking about the best places to dine in Auckland. There was no time to remedy this however, as after the Viva Live seminar we were straight on to viewing Collection 3. In between snapping runway pics, playing ‘who’s your favourite model?’ and making mental wish-lists, many a ‘I’m sooooo hungry’ was exchanged between whoever was near. Fashion makes you hungry yo. So, after the show it was settled - MaddyNikauKatherine and Emma and I were to go have a ‘real bloggers seminar’ (word to Dusty McFly) and fill our bellies at Ken’s Yakitori Bar just round the corner on Anzac Ave. Best. decision. ever. Katherine and I were both concerned we hadn’t ordered enough, until the food came out, and kept coming…and then we had to get a take-away bag. So, please, enjoy the fashion in the post below, enjoy the food – then go eat something yum.

Um, yeah…not really sure what I’m up to here ay. Oh, actually, I think this was my attempt to showcase the Herschel backpack. So seductive, no? I’m wearing a Zara knit, a French Connection skirt my girl Resh gave me from the UK, a Zara peter pan collar top underneath, Baby-G watch, and those trusty leather chucks.
