Miss Crabb, Winter 12. These pieces are both so simple and so special, and the palette is poetry to my eyeballs: petrol, raspberry, mustard, sage, lilac, sand. I’ve just bought my first Miss Crabb dress, procured from Service Depot. The fourth one down in black rather than petrol (mistake?), it’s lovely and drapey and a bit grown up. I’m also so in love with the dark raspberry of the first dress. I shall covet it from afar, as I think it was almost twice the price of the one I own.
In other news, my dear friend Laura (who got a book deal! The happiness!) invited me to be a guest on the second episode of her podcast. We talked about memorable meals, both in foreign lands and locally; both spendy and homespun. If you are so inclined, you can listen to it here.
I can’t believe I didn’t know about Kowtow until recently. For ages I’ve been whinging about how in Wellington there’s a lack of quality, affordable basics, and Kowtow was here all along, practically in my backyard. I tried on the lucky dress a few days ago, it has a crazy bat-lady thing going on, and is super great. I hearby declare that I would like All The Things.

Blown away by Twenty-Seven Names‘ NZFW presentation, as per usual. Love these guys.
Via Katherineisawesome, who has some choice party pics from the event up.
Boutique by Jaeger, via calivintage. That last dress is serious birthday dress material.
I always look forward to seeing the new Ruby collections. I must have missed this lookbook coming out as some of this is already in store, but a nice suprise, especially since it’s only a month to wait for another new collection at their NZFW show.
Just gorgeous. Dazed & Confused July 2011 ‘In Bloom’, via Rag Pony.
Wowsers in your trousers, how great are these pictures? Loving this Clever Nettle and Summerland collaborative shoot. One of my favourite things about the internet is getting to witness the growth of awesome creative people. It’s certainly been a pleasure reading Anya’s blog over the last couple of years and watching her photography become more and more amazing.
More here, here, and here.
Lover at RAFW, what an amazing, ghostly, striking show. These are some of my favourite pictures, follow the photographer’s links back for great coverage of other RAFW shows.
