What she said...

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
- Coco Chanel

Lady love of the moment...

Constance Jablonski...

Tell me what you want, what you really, really want...

Shiver me timbers suede 'puss n boots'

'Lonely nights divide me in two' men's leather McKinley boots

'The end won't be long my friend' men's leather booties

'Colour me pretty' summer dress

'I love you honey but still I can't smile' baseball bomber.

Soooo faithful followers, we have a question for you..we want to know what you would pay for this bunch of goodness. While we have priced it out already, we are doing this for YOU as much as for us and we could be swayed to change the prices once you tell us how much moola you are prepared to pay for O-G original products. Be realistic. Do it. Leave us a comment on our facebook fan page and you may be in for a surprise...!

We're not the only ones...

If you look closely, just under the scroll bar on the right hand side, Moochi tells you the same message we have been telling you for a while...'online store coming soon, slowly but surely'.

It's the age old cliche right? Good things take time... keep checking in or you just might miss out :)

Winter wishlist...

  • Although we sell and scout for vintage finds, I am also partial to the extraordinary talents of Anjali Stewart and Rachel Easting, the masterminds behind twentyseven names (www.twentysevennames.co.nz).

I want the Black Bird and Osaka dresses (pic below). Check out the lookbook at Front Row Diary http://www.fashionz.co.nz/ptgallery/twenty-seven-names-winter-2010-look-book.html
  • Jodhpur or Riding-Style Booties.
I want flat and tan. But I can't find them. A pair ALMOST perfect sold on Trade Me for $77 today (P.S none of the boots on gran's loose change are that expensive!! P.P.S This kind of thing, but nothing like them really...)
  • Biker boots.
Bad ass. Black. Mostly flat, ankle with buckles. Fairy godmother? Please help me!
