Aloha from Hawai'i

In the spirit of Pasifika Festival this weekend we picked out five festive dresses and shot over to Hawai'i. Hawaiian Airlines has recently started a direct flight from Auckland to Honolulu which means Air New Zealand are offering competitive prices! With this approaching Winter weather I suggest you plan an island trip to soak up the sun. On the other hand, our Summer days have not disappeared yet, as we have had some stunning blue sky days here in Auckland recently.

We had a lot of fun taking these photos, jumping around to different spots and taking advantage of the golden hour. Hawai'i is especially beautiful at this time, as you can see from the photos below! If you go to the island of Oahu I suggest spending the day at the North shore, then picking up a poke bowl (delicious local favourite) and driving back around the Windward side of the island. For the first time Pasifika will have a Hawaiian village and I am very excited to see what it will be like!

Aloha to Austin Kino for taking the photos and to Waffles, Nig Nog and Speedy (the chickens) for allowing us to photograph them. Out takes from this shoot will be on our Instagram.

Support Local

Maddy Budd outside Ariki Store in Grey Lynn (on Ariki Street)

This is our linen Antonio dress by Pluto and one of my favourite pieces in store at the moment. It is simple, comfortable and I can easily imagine wearing it in Winter with stockings, some kind of sturdy rainproof shoe and a jumper. It is good quality linen so it will wear nicely too. This kind of dress is a perfect basic to have in ones wardrobe, it comes in two other colour ways (charcoal grey and light light greyish purple) and its one of those dresses that will last through the seasons.

Keep it simple guys. 

The reason I have named this post 'Support Local' is because we shot this outside the Ariki store which is a cute new(ish) coffee shop that sells amazing food, Kapiti ice cream and milkshakes! We were meant to get a milkshake but they had just closed (closes around 4pm). Anyway, long story short, I think we should support local artisans! Like this sweet spot and our clothing store too because the designers are your neighbours, the sewers are your neighbours and the garments are made for you by women just like you!


Love the daughter of a Moa girl.


p.s. Thanks Maddy Budd for letting me take photos of you and thank you to my neighbour for letting me pick your daisies.
