Saying it with flowers couldn’t be more true this season as we take on a floral approach to life. Whether it be a cute playsuit, sunnies or rocking a spunky tropical overnight bag – flowers are a key look.
So go on and be pretty as a petal with colour and volume!

We are just in looove with the design of a pretty little white dress made by Kapi Fonua who’s a mega sweetheart. Not only did it win a major fashion challenge in NZ – it’s made entirely of toilet paper.
Also we celebrate Alicia Keys’ comeback, but also a MAC lipstick created for Azealia Banks – seriously how cool is she that even Kanye wants a piece of her.
Here’s our 212 for this week x

Kapi Fonua’s Kleenex Cottonelle paper dress, with an exquisite pohutukawa-inspired lace bodice and asymmetric hemline of floral flounce, has just WON the title of New Zealand’s favourite little-white-paper-dress.
In the full glare of lights, lenses and lip gloss, Kapi Fonua just 19 years old of Auckland will sit in the front row and see his dress lead the three Paper Dresses onto the runway in Shed 2 at the Viaduct Events Centre this evening.
Have a closer look – his dress is made entirely of toilet paper! Beautiful work!

Hey hey Islandhers!
Last week of August means for many of us a change in seasons which often means lots of new trends, social events and celebrations to get to. If it’s been a while since you’ve done something different it means it’s time for you to launch yourself a new look, item or even change in attitude.
We’re feeling hot hairstyles, heels and fresh off the press reading material this week. And who could by-pass supporting a charity when buying fabulous lippy?
