These are a few of my favourite things...

If you read my blog religiously you will know that I live in New Zealand (in the southern hemisphere) which means that it's summer - although the weather today hasn't been very good... Anyways, there are only 17 days of summer holiday (vacation) left and for the next 12 days I will be away from the blog, so I will leave you a plus-sized post with some of my favourite things.


The Karen Walker hoodie on the left is one of the things I bought this morning while shopping. The only thing I love more than shopping is shopping when there are massive sales on(did I mention that I saw a pair of Stuart Weitzman heels marked down to $150 from $650? Oh if only I could walk in 5" stilettos...) This hoodie was on sale for $171.50 (NZ dollars) down from $245! You can buy this at My Catwalk, however it is slightly more expensive there. I also heart the Louis Vuitton S/S 07 collection, aren't these barrettes cute? I also liked the LV earrings except they came in a set of three different ones (I'm not too sure about mismatching earrings, but could this be a trend?). You can find these at eLuxury.
I just learnt a new word - 'Jute'. I used to refer to it as the rope-y strawy thing wrapped around the heels of some shoes, but now I know the real name for it. Right now, jute-wrapped wedge heels are in every shoe shop in Auckland and they're probably going to be pretty big for the northen hemisphere spring too. I know I'm contradicting myself by putting monogrammed shoes here but these Gucci wedges are so stunning, you hardly even notice the ugly double G logo. You can find these at Saks. In my humble opinion, the Prada spring handbag collection is pretty blah, but this bag is so... I can't even find words to describe it. Why am I so captivated by it? Is it the quirkiness, the patterns or the bright orange leather? It's just so very lively and exciting. This bag is also at Saks.
Today while I was shopping, I tried on every pair of flat, open shoes in every store in Newmarket (Auckland's #1 shopping destination) but they all felt really weird. So instead of spending $100 on a pair of ones I'd wear once get blisters and then put away in my wardrobe, I bought another pair of Havaianas for $30 (NZ dollars that is..) These are the only rubber flip-flops (jandals/thongs/slip-slops/sandals/whatever you call them) that I have ever worn that actually don't rub. I also have a pair in pink, but these black ones are far more practical. On the right is the "Miss Marc" canvas tote. Marc has hit the nail right on the head again! I especially love the zip pocket at the front (it's where her lips are).
Now lets just hope the weather improves...
