1. Covet: Love James bridal & vintage

Blushing brides to be take note, Love James is the latest offering in town that promises to delight with its carefully curated array of vintage and designer bridal and party pieces. Sourced from across Aotearoa, the United Kingdom and the United States by fashion maven Lizzie Langridge, there are new and old delights aplenty, including dazzling beaded and lace dresses, statement jewellery and headpieces, veils, and dancing heels. 

Individuals looking to peruse the collection can book an intimate and relaxed viewing in the Love James’ Auckland showroom.

2. Wear: Chanel Rouge Allure L'Extrait lip colours

The hunt for the dream lipstick that combines colour, radiance, and care is officially over, all thanks to Chanel. The new ‘Rouge Allure L’Extrait’ features a highly pigmented formula that packs a serious punch where colour is concerned and harnesses light-reflecting powers to deliver serious luminosity to the lips. 

Providing up to 12 hours of hydration thanks to an ultra-nourishing combo of plant oils and waxes, you’ll want this lip colour in your winter make-up routine right away. Oh, and did we mention the iconic golden bullet is refillable too? 

Available in the deepest shades of red to the subtlest nude hues, the Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait lip colour is available at

3. Shop: Mahsa's Mood 5, 'New Bohemia'

Namesake designer Mahsa Willis is known for releasing ‘Moods’ that reflect personal experiences and life’s imperfect beauty. The newest, highly awaited Mood, ‘New Bohemia’, was released today, and we’re utterly charmed. 

New Bohemia bears the hallmarks of Mahsa’s nostalgic outlook on dressing in the form of sophisticated pyjama dressing, ankle-skimming flares, and ’70s-esque bell sleeves. Mahsa loyalists will be pleased to hear that coveted staples like the ‘Bow’ blouse and ‘Preacher’ top have returned. In true Mahsa style, modern prints and soft hues make the most of lush silks and cotton voile for a highly wearable collection.

Each piece is designed in-house, which adds to the glassware’s uniqueness.
