I’m featuring some more wonderful items from Auckland-based Vanessa Kelly Clothing today! This time it’s a couple of wardrobe staples – the Penelope skirt and Betty blouse. These two make the most adorable combo and are the best for these scorching summer days. Read on to find out more!
The perfect vintage-style skirt now has pockets! The Penelope skirt is almost a full circle, giving it great volume with or without a petticoat and giving you an excuse to twirl. The 100% cotton fabric is printed with sweet white swans on a peachy-pink background – so cute! You can order the Penelope skirt in any sizes between NZ8 – 20, and it’s designed to fall just below the knee.
Have you been struggling to find the ultimate white shirt? Then look no further than the Betty blouse! Vanessa’s darling take on this classic features a Peter Pan collar, gathered sleeves with a slight puff, and a row of matching buttons down the front. The fit is tailored, though not overly so, giving a sleek silhouette while also having room to breathe. The stretch cotton poplin fabric is light and just what you need from classic everyday wear. The Betty blouse comes in sizes NZ8-18, with all sizes currently available in white.
Both the Penelope skirt and Betty blouse can be purchased directly through the Vanessa Kelly Clothing website. They retail for $145NZD and $89NZD respectively, and both come in other prints and colours too. Local (NZ) and international shipping is available, and you can laybuy items if you choose. You might also find Vanessa at various markets around Auckland where you can browse her wares in person!
