Popbasic – Ashbury Collection

Popbasic’s Ashbury Collection will be released very soon. For this limited edition micro collection, Popbasic’s co-creators, Madeline and Coen, present us with a beautiful vegan leather skirt, a basic black tank top and a collar necklace. All these pieces present endless possibilities for pairings, particularly with other items in previous Popbasic collections, such as Le Breton.

Popbasic is also on Polyvore. This is my main style expression tool and I personally like when a brand engages well with the members of this community. And by “well” I mean in a way that promotes shared experiences and creates a sense of community. In return, the brand benefits from the input and feedback of consumers who are very dedicated to the platform. 

For the Ashbury collection, I picked up a Tweet from Popbasic encouraging Polyvore members to style the collection.

Challenge accepted!

How would you style the Ashbury collection? Would you use Polyvore to express your ideas? 

Thanks for reading!


A New Zealand native, the Pōhutukawa appears to have inspired this Max skirt.

For the first Europeans to relocate to New Zealand, the hardship of such journey and life in such a distant place must have been diminished by the fact that, not only was it Summer around Christmas time (instead of the cold, dark, wet UK), but also that this amazing new world featured these enormous coastal trees which burst with red flowers around that exact time of the year.

They must have seen it all as a sign of good fortune!

Neutrals With A Pop

Playing with textures and even patterns today.

But the most daring element in this board (well, daring to me!), is the red lipstick and nail polish.

I wouldn’t usually consider wearing pink with red but I find that little pops of red here and there go perfectly with blush pink.

This also strikes me as a perfect outfit for those transitional seasons when it’s neither too hot nor too cold, and the sun is (still) shinning!

Have a great week!!!
