I’m so glad I finally found a time and place to wear this crazy cupcake print shirt! Day #2 of NZFW, looking all layered up in a massively oversized wool coat because I learnt after Day #1 that yes, it does get cold. I was happy to have some of my favourite Aussie & NZ designers keep me company for the day – I’m absolutely besotted with the Benah x Karen Walker collection and this round bag in new season pink was the perfect size to keep all my essentials. I spotted these crazy metallic shorts backstage at Alice earlier this year and have had a soft spot for them ever since – I think my obsession with pink right now is quite clear.. I wanted to also introduce you to Izzie, a beautiful sweetheart from Wellington NZ who so kindly helped me with photos over NZFW, she’s so lovely to shoot with. We squeezed in these photos in between shows, on an deserted pier right around the corner – the perfect spot to capture this outfit with the serene harbour and crystal clear water and away from the busy-ness of it all.
