On one of my Melbourne trips I was introduced to the institution which is Cotton On. T-shirts, sweatshirts and other cool basics. Later it turned up on our shores. And it has branched out. One of my favourite shops is Cotton on Body. I discovered this offshoot of Cotton On in Queen Street, Auckland and got a good haul … plushy dressing gown, fancy pants etc. Recently discovered there is one at Dressmart Hornby Christchurch (yay) and one in Riccarton which I haven’t visited. It’s great stuff, nice materials, bright and lots of cool 50s pinup style … gingham, polka dots etc.

Yesterday I went to another Cotton on … the one for kids in Northlands Mall as another baby mama told me they have stuff for bubs as well. And a sale. Scored some lovelies … an adorable tartan dress, and some rompers plus a plain black t with “Security” written on it. And this one …


Huzzah for bargains and nifty stuff.
