This is one of my favourite dresses ever - its also my travelling dress as its super stretchy and comfortable. It's not by a Wellington label, but an Auckland label called Illicit Clothing. They currently sell street wear - hoodies and tee shirts and import a few dresses, tops, etc... from some USA labels. But there was a time when they used to make the cutest girls clothing. I am not sure why they stopped doing this - I used to see lots of girls wearing their stuff.
When I went to put this frock on yesterday I was a bit worried - I thought it might have been as case of "designed in NZ - made in China" but I was happy to learn the dress was both designed and made right here in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Excellent.
My outfit/accessories aren't terribly New Zealand, although every single day I wear this cute ring that Rich bought me for my 30th Birthday. It's from the New Zealand Jewellery designer Meadowlark. I think when I reach my weight loss goal (10kgs down - 20kgs to go) I might buy myself another one of their rings to reward myself for a job well done (hopefully I will make it before the end of this year).
