Yesterday night Danica and I attended the Juliette Hogan fashion show at the new Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland. This was my first time ever being at NZFW and what an experience it was (thank you Dan for the tickets!)!! I have never seen so many immaculately dressed women and men in one place before and being surrounded by people who were all there for their love of fashion was simply amazing. The Juliette Hogan show was everything I expected & more! It was full of feminine floaty dresses, sheer fabrics, peter pan collars & the return of the maxi pleated dress.

These are two of my favourite outfits from the show taken by Amber and Hilary. The first outfit was a silky dress with a knit mustard cardi & the second dress was the last outfit for the show. Love everything about it, the collar, the muted tones, the sheerness and the pleated maxi.

Danica looking stunning in all Juliette Hogan.

 Highlights & Lowlights of the day

  • Meeting Juliette Hogan, she is soooo down to earth in real life (highlight).
  • Danica buying her outfit from the Juliette Hogan boutique (highlight). We will definitely return!!
  • Eating my favourite pasta at my favourite food court on Queen St (highlight), then trying a different pasta which was absolutely gross and a waste of money (lowlight).
  • Finding that shops on Queen St. actually have pretty crap service (lowlight).
  • Danica almost ripping her brand new skirt (lowlight), however it didn't rip so (highlight)? lol no clue.
  • Seeing Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage (highlight), not having the balls to get a photo with her (lowlight).
  • Taking photos in the bathroom & then ninja-ing the camera back into my bag before someone came in (highlight) oh good times...
  • McD's on the way home (definitely a highlight).

Fave looks

Print on print looks amazing, as long as they don't clash (in a bad way).

Nicole looks gorgeous as ever! A crisp white shirt gives class to any outfit.

Love any type of layered look, especially one that involves a pleated skirt, 
leather jacket & a long length scarf.

Hanneli never goes wrong. One bold piece mixed with neutrals is always chic.

I.WANT.THIS.SKIRT. Enough said.

Blog of the week

I have decided to start sharing blogs which I find inspiring or read on a daily basis. I have sooo many fashion related blogs bookmarked at the moment, its just total craziness. And!! that's not including all the tumblr blogs I have bookmarked either! So each week expect to find a post on an amazing blog :)

This week I'll introduce you to a blog which I just found today. This blog mainly focuses on outfit posts, but another reason why I LOVE this blog is because of all her food related posts aswel! Those who know me well, know that I LOVE food! 

Visit Annabel's blog Blushing Ambition here .


Its been a while since I've seen an editorial that captures romanticism as perfectly as this one does.
These three images are perfection.
