Last day for the year 2012

I am not one of those people who do excessive celebration on holidays. Normally I pretty much enjoy a more "low-key" style...stay home, watch a good movie and go to bed at an appropriate time. Yes, I am dull, boring but I often feel "safer" staying in than being out with the party crowd.
Today is a rare sunny day. Despite the freezing temperature (at exactly 0 degree C), I really do enjoy my walk around town running various errands!!
I love wearing tights during the winter time. To me, they are way more comfortable than jeans. I hope you enjoy whatever you decide to do on the last day of 2012. Have fun and be safe :)

Scarf by Alexander McQueen, bag by Rebecca Minkoff (Covet) and Balenciaga moto jacket in Havana.

See you next year!! :)

After Christmas

I hope all of you who celebrate the holiday had a wonderful time. Besides a leaky ceiling right before Christmas Eve, I attended church and had a wonderful Italian meal for lunch. I also went to watch The Hobbit and thoroughly enjoyed the movie!
I took these photos right before Christmas. I am on a roll with the red purses. Luckily I own three now so you will not get bored of seeing me carrying the same thing over and over again :)
Wearing all purple today. I love these cordoroy pants. They are so warm and the fabric has a little bit of shimmer to it. Perfect for a grey gloomy day! This scarf has the funniest rabbit pattern on. I acquired it overseas last month while in Asia. My scarf collection has definitely grown since!
Large Affair bag by Rebecca Minkoff, booties by Vince Camuto (now 50% off here)
Just a few more days before 2012 ends, anything else you want to accomplish?

Merry Christmas

It's Christmas Eve everyone! I decided to be festive and wear mostly red today to celebrate the holiday! You do remember my recently acquired Coquelicot Balenciaga City bag from the lovely Julie (her blog The Fashion Minx)? It's perfect for the season. I added a new bag charm to it too (an owl pirate to be exact). I thought it suites the bag perfectly!

I am doing absolutely nothing today. I want to go watch Breaking Dawn part two finally today. I still have not seen it yet lol. I hope you are all having a relax day with whoever you decide to spend with! Keep warm, or cool (southern hemisphere) and I will see you post Christmas!

Scarf by Zara, bag by Balenciaga and boots by Frye (my other favourite pair here, waiting for them to be reduced or at least go on sale lol)

Rainy day

Sorry for the lack of post this past week. My photographer man got a bit of a cold and was out of commision for several days. Today is his first day of feeling slightly better but of course we experience freezing cold rain and it became apparently early in the day that we were not going anywhere for blog photographs. My backyard came into resecue. I did one post last winter in my backyard near the frenchdoor (see this post) but I'd rather not to if I can head out to a location.
Holiday is near, are you all decorated/gifts shopping/self-giving/etc ready? I am heading south for a week filled of sport tournament. I will have this post tie you down until I return this weekend for more outfit posts!

p.s. I am on a roll with the shorts/skort look! I hope you like what I am wearing here :)
p.p.s. For those of you who follow me on Instagram (kiwifashionblog), you have already seen this faux pearl collar necklace!

Bag is Leopard Covet by Rebecca Minkoff
Be careful out there with all the wild crowd and keep yourself warm for those of you who live in the cold climate like I do :)

Happy Birthday to me

Well, it's kind of late (two days late to be exact) but I bring you this post from the 9th of December, my birthday, to show you some of the surprises my loved-one(s)had created for me.
First of all, what I was wearing. Faux chinchilla coat by Calvin Klein, fuax leather skort and snake-embossed high platform heels with strippy T to top of my birthday outfit. I was wearing Ippolita rock-candy earrings and bag is Mulberry Alexa in medium size. Sunnies are by Lindberg.

I had a wonderful surprised italian lunch with my friends, was also surprised by a brand new Ipad (my ever first one), movie tickets, a pot of beautiful flower amongst other gifts. So many well wishes on my facebook. I could not have asked for a more fulfilling birthday.
Thank you everybody!! :)
p.s. my first gift of the day, my very own/first Ipad! YAY!!

Ski bunny

This is my first post after my 2 1/2 week trip being away. It's nice to be back. Excuse for my very tired and jetlagged face. I have to hide it with my shade! When you are tired, you naturally feel cold so I am wearing my puffy bubble jacket. The key things here are my new to me gorgeous 2011 Coquelicot Balenciaga City bag (from the gorgeous Julie of The Fashion Minx) check out her stylish blog and my statement necklace. Julie and I are new friends and I wish to learn from her incredible fashion sense!

Turtle-neck T by UNIQLO (many choices here), jeans by True Religion and booties are DV by Dolce Vita
My early birthday pressie from mum! Statement necklace!!
Close up at this new to me Coquelicot City
I cut my hair, it's a bit more manageable now.
Keep yourself warm and have a great weekend guys!

Long coat

I do not own that many long coats, I think a total of two and this moss green colour belongs to that group. I have had this coat for quite a long time, in fact, I think it was during my university year. When I first got it, it actually came with shoulder pads (haha, don't laugh now). I later had them removed and it fitted me much better (I already have boarder shoulders).

7 For All menkind coated skinny (here), Vince Camuto Marcin Booties (here)
Juicy Couture bee pendent and penguin bag charm (30% off at JC site) and Balenciaga Outremer City

I should be back to my "regular posting schedule" later on this week. First, gotta rid my jetlag lol. See you soon! :)
