Lazybones Palm Springs range – Instore now!

We’ve had lots of people asking after the newest Lazybones Summer range and you won’t be disappointed when you see the pieces in real life. Light, airy, feminine and the most perfect pieces to take you from summer days on the beach to summer parties at night.
Lazybones have also been working really hard on the sustainability front to make sure that by 2018, 85% of their production will be fair trade with a certified factory in India using only organic fibres.

This is a big move for any business, large or small, so we’re thrilled to be able to stock brands that have ethical production and sustainable fibres at the forefront – leaving a lighter footprint on this earth, without compromising style.

Available exclusively in-store only is the Estelle Picolette dress with its statement maxi length, balanced out by its feminine and floaty cotton voile fall. A relaxed gathered waist band and bodice, it features delicate front functional buttons that loop and fasten – finished off with side seam pockets making it the perfect dress for practicality as well as style. With a vintage inspired pink floral print on a vintage mint base, it’s the perfect Summer companion!

For those after a darker, dressier print we also have in stock, the Nora dress in Zafra print. Very much inspired by a 70’s shape and cut, with its tiered and multi gathered skirt starting just past the knees, it’s V shaped neckline and loose bodice with waist belt to tie around – it’s a feminine and elegant take on a classic 70’s silhouette. This one features a smaller scale pink floral print against a black and white base, making her perfect to wear casually or for dressier occasions, teamed back with clogs or wedges for that real 70’s aesthetic!

Both dresses are 100% Cotton Voile and available in XS-XL.

Available Instore only!

New In: Elk Spring/Summer

The Spring season is coming and we’re stocking up on some beautiful pieces not only from our in-house brand, Made590, but our friends over at Elk, too. This great new print has arrived instore and is in the loveliest colour way with olive green, pale pink and blue throughout the geometric print.

This print features in both a skirt and top. The boxy cut top is an easy to wear shape perfect to layer with jeans, pants, shorts skirts. With the wide cuffed sleeve and rounded neckline, you can wear this as a relaxed fit, or wear for dressier occasions tucked in and rouged out.

The skirt has so many details starting with the elasticized waist which can be worn on the hip or at a higher point around the waist. With lovely pleat details starting at the waist and throughout the skirt it creates a statement look with the perfect amount of volume. The length is also a touch longer at the back compared to the front, accommodating those of different heights. Wear as a smart, casual outfit on summer holidays and BBQ’s or wear with your favourite heel or clog and team back with accessories for the perfect night out or occasion wear ensemble.

Now available exclusively instore only!

SIZING (in skirt & top): 8-16

Belt, belts, belts…

Our very popular belts are back in stock and we have some new shades as well to welcome them back in for the Winter!

If you haven’t already heard, we’ve teamed up with a small family business in Greece – who have been in the leather business since 1947 – to create these quality accessories.

If you own a pair of our sandals that we released back in Summer, this exact business is the same one that have made these belts exclusively for us here at Made590!

The quality is superb, and unlike cheap and nasty belts, these are all cut as a single piece meaning the backing won’t separate and the colour won’t peel.

With a width of 4cm, you can team these back with a pair of pants as a dressier option for work or special/formal occasions, where it with jeans or your favourite made590 skirt or dress.

The belts can either be worn high-waisted or lower on your hip. If you do tend to wear your belts on your hip, you will need to size up for this option.

The belts come in a wide size range to suit all style and fit needs from S – XL.

belt width is 1.5inches or 3.8cm on all sizes

SMALL 24-29 inch waist or 61cm- 74cm (approximately fits 6-8 Australian sizes)
MEDIUM 28-33 inch waist or 71cm- 84cm (approximately fits 10-12 Australian sizes)
LARGE 32-37 inch waist 81cm- 94cm (approximately fits 12-14 Australian sizes)

Gertrude Made Dresses Have Arrived!

Three new beautiful dresses have arrived instore and online, made from the gorgeous Outback Wife series of fabric from Gertrude Made. This range of fabric has a really lovely back story and has been named after women who live in the Outback and their stories. Here is a little bit of the back story behind the range from Cathi, the lady behind Gertrude Made.

blog-OUTBACK-WIFE-MADE590

“Many of the old barkcloths I’ve sewn with over the years have had women’s names on the selvedge. I always wondered if they were the names of real women and if so, who were they?

So that, combined with my belief that the more good fortune one has, the more obligation one has to give back. I decided with this opportunity I would like to give back to my fellow rural women, here, and elsewhere, by raising awareness of the reality of living life on the land.

While social media has in some ways worked towards closing the gap between city and country, I feel in another it has widened it. Oftentimes I feel that social media depicts rural life in an overly ‘styled’ way, and leaves many city folk believing it’s a leisurely ‘lifestyle’. True, it’s a life filled with joyful moments and great beauty, but it’s also a life that requires courage, resilience and strength to face the countless challenges of environment and isolation.

I hope by bringing you these women’s stories, I can play a small part in providing some balance to that ‘styled’ country life perspective, because behind the food you eat and the fibre you wear, there are real people and these people have stories and lives that don’t need editing or styling to be inspirational.

They’re my reasons behind the naming.

To finally share this collection which has taken more than 18 months to create feels much like I imagine undressing in front of a room full of strangers would. I’m laying my heart out for everyone to see and being a private person, I feel quite emotional for it all. This collection says very much who I am.

I’m truly thankful to my rural ladies for sharing their stories with me and for allowing me to share them with you.”

IMG_3310Aggie Dress – Outback Wife Elaine GreenIMG_3270Aggie Dress – Outback Wife Kirstine Blue

Get ready to meet your new favourite dress! Aggie is the big sister to Agatha, which had the same cut-out keyhole back and shaped, fitted bodice, but was a sleeveless shape with lots of party potential. We wanted Aggie to be the grown up version of our favourite party dress, with a cute capped sleeve to give just that little bit more coverage and the same perfectly gathered knee length skirt which means she will lend herself to events as well as work and weekend fun! and of course, she has pockets!IMG_2956Penelope Dress – Outback Wife Kirstine Green

Penelope features two pockets at the front of the dress and and flattering cap sleeves. This style sits just above the knee, and is an Aline skirt shape. It always features a rounded boat neckline. This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of sandals or clogs or perhaps stockings and boots for the colder days. Because of its fun and classic shape you can wear her on the weekend or even dress it up to wear to work! You are bound to stand out in the crowd in this dress – and you know we love that at Made590!

We are completely in love with this new range of fabric from Gertrude Made and think you’ll love it as much as we do!

NEW STOCK: LazyBones – Ava Cardigan

The beginning of the year always means exciting things when it comes to stock!

We’ve just had a delivery (we are reporting this in real time!) from our friends at Lazybones, in Northern NSW.

The ‘Ava’ is a lovely cropped cardigan made from 100% cotton which makes the feel of this extra soft and comfortable. She comes in two striking colours; Midnight Blue and Fern green.

Ava has a pointelle knit on the front bodice of the body, making her a lovely delicate knit to look at and with enough detail to add her to your favourites in the cardigan collection.

She has a 3/4 sleeve making her the perfect companion for the inbetween, seasons – great for throwing in your bag and light weight enough to travel with. In two neutral colours, she’ll be able to be matched back with many other colours and clothing companions. Perfect to wear with your favourite dress as she sits a little past your waist, finishing at the top of your hip creating a flattering line as she is a nice and streamlined cut. Great with tops and skirts, and blouses and pants. ‘Ava’ also has a crew neck line which makes it easier for layering underneath creating a ‘no fuss’ finish.

With lovely details to finish her off like wooden buttons, she is perfect for casual and dressier occasions.

Please note that she is a shorter length cardi, if you would like to wear her oversized, please consider going up the size as she is more a of fitted structure.

Hop online now to add her to the cardi section of your wardrobe, or pop instore to see us. We love visitors!

Happy Monday!
