Lani Says' New Look

One of our favourite New Zealand bloggers Leilani Momoisea of Lani Says dyed her hair last week a beautiful pastel lilac colour and we think it looks stunning! It's such a refreshing look for the cooler season ahead and the dreary colours that are generally associated with winter.

We spoke to the lovely Leilani about her inspiration behind making the daring decision to dye her brunette locks....

It's a look I've been wanting to try for years now. It started with wanting to try the pastel dip-dye trend, which I never did, and somehow from there I became fixated on lilac hair.

Inspiration

I took this picture in to my hairdresser, Mark Henare from the new LoveHair salon, asking if it was possible. If he'd told me no, I would have been happy to give up the dream, but he said yes - so here we are.

Check out these beautiful shots, taken by Karen Ishiguro, of Leilani's new look below wearing a few of our RUBY & Liam autumn/winter 2013 pieces.....

Part 2: Foureyes on Autumn/Winter 2013

With all of our snuggly RUBY & Liam winter coats in store and an autumnal chill in the air, it's perfect timing to chat to Alex & Mino from FOUREYES, in our two part series, about their favourite autumn/winter looks.

Alex

I like finding people who have a modern twist on classic because true style is timeless. My favourite wintery looks that we've shot are:

Bella

Bella's jacket is out of this world combining different leathers and fur; necessities for a complete Winter wardrobe! I also really like the pop of colour the bag brings to an otherwise neutral look.

Bella

Bronwyn

First of all, blue is one of my favourite colours when it comes to clothes. It's easy to wear and it suits pretty much everyone. Bronwyn's look is cool, easy and casual but her shoes and accessories give her an added level of sophistication. In general, I'm not a huge fan of caps but this one goes so perfectly with her look.

Aneta

I love the way Aneta has used a pop of colour without it overtaking the whole look. I also love the large collar that breaks up the colour and balances the look and the simplicity of the block colours.

Aneta

Kylie

Kylie has not only used accessories including this great scarf, sunglasses and bracelets to put together this eye-catching outfit but has also used a strong colour element to make a statement on the streets.

What is your favourite piece from the RUBY A/W 2013 collection?

I love the RUBY Cupid Trousers the RUBY Roxy Foxy Stripe dress.

Mino

I like seeing people who are confident in what they are wearing and who can express their personality through their style - to me, this is what's fabulous! I love the following looks:

Olivia

The play on textures in Olivia's look are great from the coat to the mesh top and tassels on her bag. The colour of this look brings some warmth into an otherwise dreary Winter!

Oliva

Laura

Just because it's getting colder, doesn't mean that we need to restrict ourselves to being completely covered up. I love the colourful matching floral shorts and blazer Laura is wearing.

Laura

Zoe

I love how Zoe's outfit uses a lace texture and also a print to create a multi-dimentional look that doesn't look over-done. It's simple but really striking at the same time.

Zoe

What is your favourite piece from the RUBY A/W 2013 collection?

The RUBY Pretty Thing Sweater and Mr Jones Coat are stand outs for me!
