It’s finally New Zealand’s time to shine! This week I bring to you Daisy Jean Floral Design’s latest collection: New Zealand Natives. Daisy Jean recently reached out to me about this range and asked if I would share some with my audience and of course I jumped at the opportunity. A range dedicated to New Zealand – what’s not to love? I may be a little biased as I was born in New Zealand… So often as a small country we’re forgotten about and I think it’s super special to have a range dedicated to our native birds and flowers because they are just gorgeous.
Long time no talk! The last month has been a bit of a roller coaster; I have been working five days a week AND I made it in the finals for Miss Pinup New Zealand in association with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum!! As you can imagine I have had a lot of prep work – four outfits ( & that’s just for the pageant!) I’ve been working with the ever so lovely Fran from Cry Cry Cry Clothing and I must say every outfit is MAGICAL! I cannot wait to share them all with you. ❤ Miss Pinup New Zealand in association with Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum takes place on the Saturday of the Very Vintage Day Out (weekend) in Auckland on the 28th & 29th of October (yes, this time next week)! So come on and cheer me on if you’re in town! If you have already got your tickets let me know below – I must meet everyone!

Moving on… Daisy Jean Floral Designs recently contacted me about a Halloween collaboration which is why we are here! If you didn’t know Daisy Jean Floral Designs was one of the first “Pinup” businesses I ever bought from when I first started in the scene three years ago. So it was huge honour for me to be asked to collaborate with them; their hair flowers are my favourites & they are so well made!
Daisy Jean Floral Designs came up with a super cool Halloween range (in which they have hand drawn, painted and assembled) ranging from owls to cats and my personal favourite The Witches Flight brooch! I love the resin coat over the top of the brooch and the size of the brooch itself; it’s a real statement piece but I also feel it can be worn all year round depending on the outfit. I decided to pair the brooch with this incredible dress from Chi Chi Clothing – I have bought from them before and they never fail me! This dress is vampy – I love it especially as I don’t own a lot in black.
What are your Halloween plans this year? I’m attending the Blood Moon Ball and already have my outfit sorted. Are you attending the Blood Moon Ball?
