“Seeing simply is seeing significantly.” - Jack Wilkinson

It was a quick first visit, but I needn’t stay long to say Eden Garden has become one of my favourite gardens in Auckland. Flowers are scarce during autumn but the variety of glimmering shades of foliage makes up for a whole lot. In a happy accident, I managed to colour coordinate, and at the same time, stand out amongst the flora with my muted mint dress from ethical fashion label Pinch & Punch who makes their garments right here in Auckland. I love how this dress strikes the perfect balance of relaxed and elegance, in the perfect shade of green – and I can see myself wearing it for many seasons to come. Ethical clothing brands like Pinch & Punch show us that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way. I think it’s time we join Fashion Revolution Week, yes?
