Relaxed Glamour

The quintessential kiwi summer calls for some relaxed pieces with a touch of glamour that can easily transition from the BBQ, to the Boardroom After 5 Function. We have the perfect solution for this - the We Are Dot Amused - Spotty Dot top available on our website for pre order. This top is available in soft white and black and is double layered with a gorgeous fit and flare silhouette. The circular sequin patterns on this top give it just the right amount of embellishment without feeling overdone. The length makes it a perfect option to wear on it's own should you like a little modesty around the backside area!! I will be getting one of these in each colour. Stacey x

Through Rose Tinted Glasses

A key look for SS 16/17 is coloured lenses in sunglasses.  Featured here my beautiful Chloe frames with a gorgeous retro vibe.  Lots of gorgeous hues in lenses to choose from.  Many Designers and also high street brands have done their own version of this super cool look. Possibly not ideal for high summer in New Zealand as not enough protection for the eyes - but perfect for Spring x

The Summer Of The White Dress SS16/17

One of my favorite looks for SS16/17 is the beautiful white dress with lace, applique or cutout detail.  I have hand selected this gorgeous option from Curate by Trelise Cooper which is available on my website Caravan Of Love.  A couple of other pics for inspiration too.  These dresses are so easy to wear, and can take you anywhere a girl wants to go sx

Welcome to my Blog

Finally welcome to my blog!  I have found it a little bit tricky to start a blog as I am simply so busy and vary rarely at my desk.  After ten years working as a Personal Stylist, I have seen a lot of changes, I have seen dreams being fulfilled, I have seen love and success found and I have been fortunate enough to inspire many to evolve their personal style. I too have learnt so much on this journey and I would like to share some of my thoughts and experience with you, so this first post is a little about what has inspired my somewhat feminine, eclectic, sometimes grungy and everychanging style.  My love of embellishment started very young and I discovered the transformative effect of clothes and makeup as soon as I could reach my grandmother’s dressing table.  She had what seemed like to me my dream boudoir – with her crystal perfume bottles, jewellery boxes and a vast assortment of eyeshadow, lipstick and rouge!  I can still remember the delightful fragrance of her Cyclax Milk of Roses Moisturiser as I think of her. 

In my teenage years, I was a massive Madonna fan and took to wearing tutus with lace in my hair and today will often still embellish my hair.  In my Nanas bedroom she had a gorgeous picture of ballerina’s and my fascination with all things tulle began to blossom. 

However, as a hairdresser in the mid 80’s (yes, I used to do perms), there was an underlying darkness and moodiness to our dresscode with a staple wardrobe of Zambezi, Ricochet and Doc Martins with the odd tulle petticoat and ripped tights thrown in for good measure.  So, my feminine style took on a slightly darker tone and even though it has evolved and it is now a more relaxed glamour,  it’s interesting that when we think about it, we can often recall the moments or people that have inspired our personal style.  

I would love to know who or what has inspired your look over the years and has it changed significantly?
