New Zealand Fashion Week is in full swing and downtown Auckland is awash with beautiful people wearing beautiful clothes. The sun shone bright for Day 2 as I headed into the city to attend the ITZME and Julian Danger show followed by lunch at The French Cafe for a gorgeous Dermalogica launch.
How fab does that sound?
Not going to lie, it was pretty amaze but I felt like a complete fish-out-of-water at the runway show. Getting the kids off to school and kindy by 8am, pulling an outfit together, doing somewhat acceptable hair and make-up before driving into the city, parking and charging a couple of blocks in heels is not my average Wednesday morning lol. Heck, it’s not even my average Saturday night to be honest!
However, it was totally fun playing dress-ups and accessorizing. I built my outfit around my Jord Wooden Watch which I love! I paired the natural wooden beauty of the Green Argentinian Sandalwood with a stacked wooden heel (Country Road) and continued to add texture with a sheer chiffon blouse (F21), pleated skirt (Country Road) and a leather jacket (Just Jeans).
My Ely watch is a dream to wear. My usual Marc Jacobs is super heavy, (I’m sure it could be used as a weapon actually!) so wearing a quality watch that qualifies as a featherweight is a welcome respite. The wood is a juxtaposition of hard-wearing functionality and soft, rounded lines that make it a pleasure to wear, plus, free shipping worldwide and the team sizes your watch for your before despatch. 10/10.
