Pepa-Loves-Spring-2014-1

I was recently asked to style a few pieces from the 2014 Spring collection by Pepa Loves. I can’t explain how very happy it makes me – if you’ve been reading the blog a while you’ll know that PL is one of my very favourite labels. Every garment has the cutest little detail – as I’m sure you will see in this post (dachshund print, anyone?!)

We took these photographs outside one of my favourite buildings in Wellington; the Old Bank Arcade. This building is both beautiful and has an incredible story. You can read all about it here – but long story short; in 1997 they discovered that there was an actual ship underneath the building! I’ll have to give you a tour sometime – the basement even has a glass floor.. But for now we chose the building because it reminded me of Madrid; the base of the one and only Pepa Loves shop. When I imagine Madrid I immediately visualize pale yellows and wonderful old buildings. This structure fits the bill quite nicely, I think! Still, I’d like to imagine that I really was in Madrid. Perhaps then I could even visit the Pepa Loves store. A gal can dream, eh!

  2. Such a cute idea to choose a building to transport you to another place. It’s also lovely to get to know your city, love the story of the ship.
