somethin fishy

heh heh heh i can't help but have a little laugh at this collection of amazing underwater creatures, which are in fact handbags.  yes bags.  we're talking clutches, back packs, FANNY packs and even iphone cases.  it amazes me the creativity people have and what they can come up with.  personally the squid bag, or fish clutch are probably my favourite.  i found it especially interesting to hear the designs were developed using a new 3D pattern making technique.  funnily enough i'm hearing about this same technique in little old wellingtown in the great nz...

american girls in paris in the 60's

wooaaahhhh it's not every day i see an international collection and am completely floored by how good it looks.  sometimes i dont bother even looking at a lot of them - talk about fashion overload!!  chris benz ss11 is an exception.  one glance (at one divine aquatic floral print wedge, see image 1) and i was searching as quick as possible for the rest of the collection.  i'm gob smacked. stunned.  stuck for words even.  all i can say is i love it all. wide leg pants, fantastic prints, tan, teal, yellow, orange, cute knits, killer shoes, basically everything i wish i could own right now.  did i mention killer shoes??? check out my personal fav in the first pic...they only retail for about $1000.00NZD (gape!!)

note:  he was inspired by 'american girls in paris in the 60's' ..oh how i want to be one of them!!

pool party anyone?

a few days ago i was daydreaming of 70's disco style pool parties.  probably because we are about to hit winter and i'm in denial.  the type of party that oozes class, great hair, pops of colour and great accessories.  this editorial cements it for me and id be happy in any of these....so who's got the indoor pool.....?

molten goodness

wow not often i get really excited over new kiwi jewellery designers but i just saw these beautiful images by alexandra dodds and couldn't stop looking.  something about the intricate molten like metalwork is more whimiscal than most knuckle dusters and a lot more feminine.  these beauties can be nabbed from alexandra owen.
