new in: Glassons EDT boutique wrap dress - orange is the new black

"Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress."
- Coco Chanel 

I follow a few NZ fashion media people on twitter and last week I started hearing about the new limited edition
 collection from glassons coming out. I started to get increasingly more excited the more I saw of it, so come 
Thursday morning I luckily had a morning lecture (meaning I was actually awake) and jumped on their website
 to look at buying something from it. I had seen this fire engine orange wrap dress in the media photos and loved
 it but eventually decided to get it since it was the item I thought was most eyecatching and best for my shape. I
really liked the little details like the semi-transparent sleeves and the wrap fastening detail. It arrived super fast (as
 in next day super fast) and though I haven't had something to wear it to yet, I wanted to style/share it because
 I couldn't leave it hidden for long. 

lol I was trying to pat the cat with my shoes to make her go away, she followed us around all afternoon, she 
even made it into the video haha!
wrap dress - glassons (from their new limited edition EDT collection)
bag - mighty purse from Hedgerow
shoes - number one shoes

In my haste to take these photos I forgot two things. 1. I needed to iron this dress (since I ordered it online it didn't come with all its folds steamed out). and 2.This dress requires a slip underneath it. As you might be able to spot from some of the photos, it has large splits up the sides and an unsecured flap (since its a wrap dress). And though these details are gorgeous, they reveal a little too much skin when one is slipless and confronted by wind. I may not have worn it out yet, but I have learnt some important weather/undergarment considerations for when I do!

I also had the opportunity from nzgirl to try out this mighty purse. I did a post about it on their website (here), and also made a video about how it works because I thought it might be easier (and more fun) to explain that way. So if you're interested I've included that below :)



  1. This is such a sophisticated dress, love the colour and the heels are divine.
