Great stylish and practical clothes for July

A great woollen blend Cape to throw on for that extra layer, with its high collar, that can be folded down or pulled up to act as a scarf. I wore this cape last weekend on a cold rainy day in Picton and found it invaluable.

The nights are really starting to draw in down here in Christchurch.
Although we are lucky enough to have some really nice days.
And we have plenty of stylish and very practical cool weather designs to keep you feeling both warm and fashionable all season long.

The Merino Zip Cardy was a hit last month and we still have some available in black and plum.
It's been my favourite piece, so light and cosy.

My pick this month has to be the Taylor Cape.
I wore it last weekend and it was invaluable, elegant and practical-a winning combination in my book.

And look out for the new top with a front insert and collar, it's a great everyday look. The Kate Top available in a viscose/spandex knit and also the Katrine Top in a modal/wool/spandex knit. These will be wonderful additions to your winter wardrobe.

We have a couple of new chiffon skirts, the Candace Skirt and the Violet Skirt, dress them up or add a pair of tights and a merino for a great casual look.
It's fun to experiment with different textures and colours.
As I get older I find myself becoming braver about what to wear- a little reinvigoration of the wardrobe is a good thing for generally boosting the spirits.

We hope you fall I love with these new pieces and enjoy wearing them as much as we have enjoyed creating them.

Studio Open Hours: Thursday,Friday 9.30am till 3pm, Saturday 10:00am till 2pm and Monday 10:00am till 3:00pm
