Take Me To The Lavender Fields

What could be more romantic than escaping into a lavender field in the Wakatipu Valley of New Zealand? Pretty much nothing.

My blogger soul literally shrieked out when it saw these rows and rows of lavender bushes sitting pretty, just waiting for me to dive in. We stumbled upon this farm thanks to a random google search while scouting for things to do on a sunny day, and we consequentially landed up on Tripadvisor, which promised nothing but great reviews about Ben Lomond’s lavender farm run by an old couple and their passion for farming.

How I Decided My Blog Aesthetic X 1989Co.

Not sure how many of you here have been with me since the very beginning, but as you might know, there have been a COUPLE of name changes when it came to my blog, and generally, me as a fashion entity.

So I started back in 2009 with just Style Fiesta and a coupe of years down the line when I launched my brand, I kinda, committed to keeping the name the same for my blog and my brand. Obviously, wrong move. Too many confused readers + customers later, I decided to let my brand keep my hard-earned followers on Style Fiesta and set out to find a recognisably similar, but separate handle for myself.

An Eves Affair

Yesterweek we (Team Miss SF) hopped in to get a sneak-peak of the newly launched ‘Diamonds of Eve’ collection by Zoya and here’s our take on the marvellous assemblage we witnessed.

Summer Embroidered On My Skirt

Last week I walked into the Max Fashion store (I’m sure the name needs no introduction) with my latte in tow to browse through their latest offerings and see if anything caught my eye. I have to say I totally loved the hip vibe exuded by their sartorial collection! I zeroed in on this particular outfit because it struck a chord with me – it was just what I was looking for! Something breezy, fun, effortless and airy enough to combat the summer heat.

Mini Day Dress #OwnKnit

Thanks to the heat wave we’re currently facing – the idea of even sourcing knitwear to style for a shoot made me break into a sweat. Little did I know that walking into Benettonto source from its knitwear collection would completely upturn my pre-conceived notions about this textile.

Earlier, when I first thought of knitwear, the only things that came to my mind were my grandmum’s hobby or oversized jumpers on cold holiday nights. Now it’s probably this striped monochrome mini dress that I snagged from Benetton‘s surprisingly fun, vibrant, trendy ‘knitwear’ rack.
