What a busy week it's been here at Saben HQ! But it has all been worth it- as seen our snapchat (@sabennz) and instagram; we are now stocked at David Jones Wellington! (did the title give it away?).Mama Saben was down there for the grande opening and stayed at the Museum Hotel (which she hasn't stopped raving about), and so I hit her up for a pop quiz about the night!Ok, Museum Hotel; why was it sooo fabulous?"What's not to love about being surrounded by fabulous art? It's all in the details at the Museum Hotel- the Nespresso coffee machines in every room, the waterfall showers, plentiful towels, and a bed big enough for goldilocks!".Sounds divine! Did you have a favourite piece of art?"Yes, although I'm slightly biased as a few of the pieces hung in my parents' house for years".Now to the night; what made you pick the new Big Sis Tilly in natural croc?"I needed a clutch but I wanted a slightly bigger one.. Big Sis Tilly was the answer but it was a difficult choice between the geometric print Big Sis Tilly and the new natural croc, I went with the natural one in the end as she is the ultimate in luxe".What do you think of the new department store? We in Auckland are dying to hear about it!"A M A Z I N G, they have done a wonderful job of reinventing the space but keeping the character. The products, the displays, the finishing's and even the staff are so glamorous that you fell glamorous just walking around the space".I can't wait to see it! Ok last question, apart from Saben, was there a brand you were really excited to see?"Tom Ford, Saint Laurent, Chloe to name a few!".I don't know about you, but I'm sure hoping on the next flight down- it just sounds so lush!As you all know, we are big on Saben Love so if your around, pop in and have a play with the latest season and don't be afraid to #sabenlove and #meandmysaben because we just love seeing it!Shop BST natural croc here
Tilly is my official Bonnie on the side. She's the girl that gets me from A to B without letting me forget anything, how? Because she's just so organised!In day to day life, Tilly's my all in one; sunnies, headphones, cards, cash, lip balm AND phone all fit her with ease. Yea, she cant fit in my pocket, but with the wrist strap- she is so easy to use hands-free.Travelling? Tilly again has you covered- keep your cash and boarding pass in the center compartment which has the added security of an additional zip, and then use the card slots on either side for ID's or visa's. Add your normal bits and bobs as well as your phone charger, and well she may grow a little, she's still more then capable to fit it all in!

Our team share with you their wardrobe MVP's
Designer / Director Roanne - MATILDA
"The perfect size to stash all I need for work, but not such a haul I have to swap it out on weekends. Plus the concertina design means Matilda works like a portable filing cabinet with plenty of clever pockets to help me stay organized."
Office Manager Kirstie - FRANKIE
"Propped on the shoulder to look chic during the week, then slung on the hip for care-free weekends, Frankie has been the best investment yet"
Ponsonby Boutique Manager Anton - TILLY
"Her constructed interior to organises the chaos which would normally be dispersed between my pockets. Tilly was a game-changer, I take it everywhere"
Sales and stock manager Jesika - BABY REGAN
"Baby Regan is the ultimate working girl, mine is always packed to the gunnels. Either with a laptop and files for work trips, or a change of clothes in case Saturday dinner with the girls turns into a Sunday morning brunch"
Production and marketing manager Brooke - REESE
"I am expecting in August! So this season I choose a bag that could take me from the work-mode to mum-mode, Reese is understated and stylish, yet the inside features waterproof lining with pockets a-plenty and a hidden change mat!"

So Oskar has arrived in the Ponsonby Store, and to put it frank- he is my new obsession. To the point of which I am considering in getting him in both black AND tan! -hey there are worse things to be obsessed over right?!The hardest part is where to start with this delectable addition to our gender neutral collection.. The leather is as soft velvet, the main cavity fits a laptop and folder.. as well as all the extra stuff I never use but pop in my varsity bag anyway. His second, smaller compartment is ideal for the items you need easy access to, oh and he he looks good parked up above your hip, or slung below it, or even cross body- yes versatility it seems is Oskar's middle name.Whether it's varsity, work or play- Oskar will get you there safely and stylishly.Shop Oskar here.
