The world has obviously been plunged into something of a fashion hiatus. Staying at home has kept autumn trends in a holding pen for when we venture back out and start to tentatively make steps towards normality.
We chat with Wendy herself to find out how she would recommend navigating the jump in seasons that we have experienced in our wardrobes…
All of the team at Wendys Boutique and Tilda are so excited to be back together again after 7 weeks of working from home! From 9am tomorrow our doors will be open once again to our wonderful friends and customers! We are so excited to see you all! And to get you excited about shopping again, check out our top staff style choices for the Month!
It’s hard to believe that Mother’s Day has crept up on us, and this year will for many be one that is so incredibly different from any we have experienced before. Nevertheless, most people will be scrabbling around for creative ways to mark the occasion, whether it be gathering flowers from the garden, baking, making meals – the simple things never fail to mean so much. With our online service now able to operate as usual (just very carefully and contactless of course) there is also the chance to celebrate the day with a special gift.
International Women’s day may or may not have passed you by. For me, it was a little like Shrove Tuesday – I knew pancake day was coming, and had every intention of doing something for it, however before I had time to whip up my batter it had come and gone. Nevertheless, it’s never too late to get on board. Since the premise of this day is to celebrate womanhood in whatever form you think best, for those who love fashion, what better way than to mark its significance every day through your wardrobe?
While we slowly edge into the new season, it’s a great time of year to take an overview of what the International Designers have mapped out for 2020. In some ways here in the Southern hemisphere we have a slight edge, because the Fashion Shows dictating the Northern Hemispheres autumn/winter 2020/21 trends are taking place right now. So, from the catwalks of New York to London to Milan, the fashion forecast is available, and ready for us to take inspiration from to ensure we start our autumn in style.
The latest collections have dropped in store, and to celebrate the occasion Wendys hosted its Grand Opening on Monday (while Tilda will be flinging its doors open and revealing rail upon rail of new season fashion Monday 17th). Coinciding with the Oscars, for the fashionista it was the perfect day on the style calendar. While Hollywood brought us a snapshot of aspirational haute couture and an overview of some of the trending styles, here in Tauranga, Wendys opening was also one filled with inspiration and dazzling fashion options. The day was bright and sunny, and within the store there were shimmering silks, smooth knit wools and jacquards…a cacophony of colour and texture. Ok so we may not be in LA, but we can still dress like A-listers.
Ok, so a rodent doesn’t necessarily scream glamour, however the Chinese Lunar New Year is cause for huge celebrations. On 25th January the Year Of The Rat was welcomed with fanfare, and parties to mark this will continue for just over a fortnight, finishing with the Lantern Festival on February 8th. During this time Chinese communities across the world will be decorating their homes, throwing parades and generally kicking up their heels as they wish for a happy and prosperous year ahead. A symbol of renewal, wealth and surplus, while the rat is perhaps not the chicest of creatures, the colour code is lucky red, gold, and of course just a dash of super glam.
We live in a world that is as unpredictable as it is exciting. There are the vagaries of the summer weather – which so far have called for linen one minute, leather the next. And unless you’ve been under a rock for the last few days, you’ll have heard of the mayhem caused by the flick-flaking royals Harry and Meghan – surely unpredictability at its best. In amongst this roller coaster start to 2020, fashion has raised its head as the beacon of consistency; which for those who want to shop the designer sales in style, is good news indeed.
