Stolen Girlfriends Club

Just browsing the www, being bored, and found out this amazing piece of information!
"Stolen Girlfriends Club was formed in 2005 by ex professional surfers Marc Moore and Luke Harwood. The reason for starting their own brand? To make t-shirts that their girlfriends could wear home in the morning...thus giving the brand an ever present androgynous feel. 
All their collections are made here in NZ, instantly giving the brand a high end boutique feel with an exclusive niche market."
I stumbled across this on the website Suprette which has amazing New Zealand clothing, plus a lot more. Check it out.

It is fair to say my mind was blown, though the name does make sense now! Some of their clothing is so feminine and dainty, and they do knit wear like no other, that I just could not imagine males designing it. To be fair though, now that I think about it, it is predominantly power shoulders and denim and mesh, and some of the best designers in the world are male. Of course they would have female support but you get what I am saying. S.G.C is one of my favourite designers, so I thought why not share some of their clothing.

I love their latest collection which is made up of (American) football-esque t-shirts, snakeskin, tribal print and just generally beachy clothing. The collection is titled "Life's a beach... watch out for crabs". The models were fitting with smoky eyes and lose, rustled hair with feathers in. Note: the pictures are not all from the this collection. The last 2 dresses are and the first dress. The rest are just pictures I liked that I had saved to my computer. For more pictures follow the link.

Mumford & Sons

Something about this video just gives me such a fit of joy. They are so damn passionate about their music with the foot stomping and jigging and all. And just generally amazing artists. And very fashionable. Aaaaaand quite good looking. Oh you get the picture, I love the band!

Song is Little Lion Man if anyone was wondering.

Now, on a semi-unrelated note, I was looking up the lineup for Big Day Out 2011 and everyone is like 'Wooooh Tool' etc so I decided to watch the video for their biggest song (or one of), and to be quite honest, I was terrified. Song isn't bad, I quite like it in fact, but honestly, this video is grotesque. I believe at one stage there is a penis crawling along the floor.

Now I am off to do the much dreaded study for my upcoming exams in 2 weeks. Fuck

Rumi Neely

Ahoy there! And welcome.

Like any good blog, I am going to begin with some fan mail.
Rumi Neely, I love you. I could not fault most of your outfits. Honestly, I could read your blog and look at you (in the least creepy way possible, of course) for hours. haha & now to share my favourite pictures...

*(and when I say 'favourite pictures' I really mean recent outfits that I loved.... like a little kid loves Christmas).

Oh, and her blog is called fashiontoast and if you haven't read it yet (have you been living under a rock?!) here is the link:
