News – Madame Fancy Pants


Christmas open hours!

Come say hi! We are here all these days...the other'll need to go to the beach or shop online!

SUMMER(S) is here!

Well, ok not ACTUAL summer - but Summers the label!

And who is this Summers the label you ask? Well it is the lovely and talented Jessica Matthews who has renamed and branded Aida Maeby to Summers. But why did she rebrand you also ask? Gosh you ARE full of good questions!

Well here is what Jess has to say:

“When a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer, I found myself searching for a way to support her from afar. The name Summers is in homage to the friend I lost. The name change has sadly come too late for her to see, but I hope that with our ongoing donations to breast cancer support and research, other women might be spared the same fate.”

Which I think is just a bloody good reason don't you?

She is also donating  $4 from the sale of each garment to The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, which is great coz we know that every cent helps right?

All of Jess's garments are designed AND made right here in lil Wellington, the coolest and craftiest wee capitol city around don't cha know.

SHOW ME THE GOODS you say? Well ok ok. The first part of her 'In Clover' collection has arrived so.... Here ya go!

We are a bit in love with the Emer linen dress - she is going to be GREAT for those hot summer days, and then team with a loose tee or cardi for when it gets the chill factor. So good!



Justina Blakeney x Studio Calendars & Planners!

If you have been to our new store at 225 Cuba Street - you may have seen our BEAUTIFUL wallpaper. It is by The Jungalow by Justina Blakeney - her style is so eclectic and just amazing. I feel in LOVE with the wallpaper when I saw it and knew it just had to be on our new store's walls.
So how flippin EXCITED do you think I was when I saw that Justina had done a collab with Studio Oh. SO MUCH!!!
We just got our first delivery of her planners and calendars in so CHECK'EM!

Love a shoe? Then say HELLO to Miss Wilson!

We have just received the most part of our Miss Wilson SS19 delivery - and BOY are they B E A U T I F U L !

Let's say hi to the range and some pairings we think would be winner!

Naomi! She comes in a beautiful Amethyst - which is going to be the perfect spring party shoe we think and would look super beautiful with the Sealed with a bow dress by Coop. Did someone say garden party?

Naomi also comes in waxy dark tan which looks like she just stepped out of the 70s and would add a certain spunk to the delicate ivory lace Hazel Midi by Tuesday. This beaut Hazel midi buttons off and you can just wear your swimmers underneath and just shed the dress ready for ....pool party, anyone?!

Karen is the earthy nude shoes that make your legs look like they go forever and would look stunning paired with The Playsuit of happiness by Coop - and you're off to the party!

Luna is your every weekend head to the market sandal - or if you are lucky enough to be heading off to a beach overseas..then....Luna is for you! Team up with a Maxi dress like the Eva maxi by Tuesday for some Grecian goddess esc style.

Silver Tyler sneaker is your go-to for pretty much anything! Dress a simple dress up - dress a pretty dress down! 

Team it with The Salasai Beg for love dress, Up in arms dress by Coop or the Essence dress by Blak. Either way, you'd be lookin fine!

Enjoy your summer wardrobe planning!

(Also - there are 3 more gorgeous styles due in September so keep an eye out!)
