Majka's Holiday Wishlist #1

Welcome to 2013! I hope all you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year with friends and family. I love this time of year to relax, reflect, and start making exciting plans for the year ahead with renewed enthusiasm. This summer I'm lucky enough to have my two very best friends home and plan to have some time away at a bach in the bay and a good old roadie north to explore the op shops, enjoy great food and wine, and chill out with those to know me best. Whatever your holiday plans, RUBY has some essential pieces that will ensure you travel in style and comfort. Here's to a fantastic year!


Clockwise from Top Left:Ruby Pool Dress in khaki is a flattering feminine account of the jungle camo. It’s shirred bodice emphasizes the figure as does the gathered, fully lined skirt. Dress up with a wedge or go pool side casual with trainers or flip flops.

One thing I love about summer is the ease of rolling out of bed and simply slipping on an easy wear dress. From the Ruby Limited Fashion Week collection, the Blossom Dress offers effortless style.

The pineapple has long been a symbol of wealth and hospitality, hence the name of the Liam Welcome Ring. A treasure to carry with you on your summer travels and adventures.

The Kathryn Wilson Tara Wedge is a great companion to both the Pool and the Blossom dresses with it’s subtle polka dots. Wear with capris, short shorts, or your wardrobe staple LBD.

The Ruby Nail Polish in Giovanna is guaranteed to make a statement in this unusual hue on toes or finger nails.

MYDEERFOX is my new number one handmade designer accessories label. Locally made, all bags and clutches are made with the very best leather and eco-friendly organic dyes. These geometric shapes are right on trend, beautifully constructed and have the cute logo embossed on every bag. Available in four unique styles which include the Box, Diamond, Triangle Bag (pictured), and the Pasta Clutch in either classic black or nude. I treated myself to the black Pasta clutch for Christmas and I can’t wait to show it off at style and design events over the coming year!

Grown Facial Kit is the ultimate travel beauty kit. Including a travel sized cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and facial serum, keep them neatly tucked away in the stylish black box til you’re next on the move.

The Flint Coil of Truth Sunglasses design is based on vintage styles and are designed to stand the test of time.

Finnish textile and homewares company, Marimekko has collaborated with American heavyweights, Chuck Taylors, to create these hip All Star Premium trainers. Great teamed with a casual shirt dress, summer frock, or your favourite pair of jeans.
