Twenty-Seven Names. Spring/Summer 10/11. “Twelve”.

Another solid collection from NZ label Twenty-Seven Names. Sheer fabrics and pastels are defnitely on trend for the upcoming summer. Pity I have to get through winter first. However, I am a little put off by the fact that the models actually look twelve. Kind of makes me feel that if I were to try any of these pieces on, it would be a case of mutton dressing as lamb. Insecurities aside, there are some lovely pieces in this collection, and now I think I should add a pair of lavender shorts/culottes to my ever growing list of wardrobe ‘needs’.

    I am seriously in love with the blue velvet dress in the last photo.
    And I see what you mean about them looking really young, they have a compleeetely different body shape to me too.

    wow dress #6 looks exactly like winona ryder's dress in reality bites πŸ˜€ and yeah I totally agree about the models looking like they're 12, it's a bit creepy.

    @catherine: I think I need to catch on to that trend too haha.

    @deathwearsdiamondjewellery: I know right? I dream of having hair like this. I wonder if there was lots of styling involved or if it naturally falls that way.

    @asymmetricera: Thanks. I'm pretty sure that last dress is velvet. It's such a nice change from all the bodycon velvet dresses out at the moment.

    @principia: ooh I'll have to suss that out (re: reality bites).

    @Jules: Thank you. It always so lovely to hear from people who enjoy my blog. As for my template, it's a very heavily edited minima lefty πŸ™‚
