Ingrid Starnes + Tessuti now in Newmarket! And I'm doing a giveaway!

The Ingrid Starnes collections have had a home for a while in the beautiful Tessuti store in Herne Bay - so successfully in fact that they have now opened a second store at 13-15 Kent Street, Newmarket. The pop-up store will be around for three months, so definitely get in and enjoy it while it's around! The beautiful light interior is the perfect home for Ingrid's elegant collections and Tessuti's beautiful homeware.

To celebrate the new store, I have a giveaway to run! The prize is an awesome Ingrid Starnes and Tessuti gift pack featuring including a $150 Ingrid Starnes Voucher and a Herve Intense of Bois de Cashmere candle by Herve Gambs.

To win, simply comment and tell me what your favorite piece from Ingrid's winter collection is (check out her awesome new website and online store) and your favorite thing from Tessuti (personally, I'm very partial to the Missoni range and all the candles). Make sure you include both  and don't forget to leave your full name! The winner will be drawn next monday. Good luck. x

  2. My favourite piece from Ingrid Starne's winter collection is the bee cami and my favourite thing from Tessuti is the Missoni Luca Hand Towel in the colour 'Sundown' :)

  3. What a beautiful store, I only wish I was in Auckland to see it. My favourite piece from Ingrid Starnes would have to be the Bee Cami in Ink, absolutely gorge ous and something I'd keep in my wardrobe for ever!! To offset the feminity of the cami I would choose the Day of the Dead ring by Petra Bettjeman from Tessuti.
    From a very sick follower who's stuck at home under lock down but still manages to get heaps of enjoyment from your blog:)

  4. OMG the store looks stunning!!! Can't wait to check it out. I love Tessuti's book collection and covet the fabric covered Kenzo tome. And I can't see it on her website, but if that is the top version of the Eddie dress in the above photo - WANT!!!!

  6. The Cornelia Dress in Amber is so gorgeous! As is the Cray Dress in Ink. And I love (and totally need) the Cutlery Drainer by Morgan Haines. Have been looking for on for weeks and this is so perfect. (And all the Louise Douglas jewellery.)

  8. I'm drooling over the ILI Silk Sheer Dress from Ingrid Starnes and I really adore the Rosary Wall Sconce at the Tessuti shop!!

  9. I would kill for the earthy-toned Eliska Dress from Ingrid Starnes - I love its classic silhouette. From Tessuti? geez, what's not to love? I'm currently painting the bathroom so some Missoni hand towels would add the right amount of umph to the neutral walls :)

  10. It has to be the silk teddy with the lace detailing plus the moroccan rose scented bistro candle for a lovely winter night in.

  16. Avery jacket from Ingrid Starnes- structured goodness. Missoni humbert throw mmmm.

  17. Since it's just out of Ingrid's AW12 collection it would have to be the Pink Alba slip ( to suit it perfectly would be the Quad stack rings by Petra Bettjeman from Tessuti (
    (too impossible to decide between the fragrances and candles)

  19. Everything these guys do is amazing! I'd be broke if I spent too much time in their gorgeous store!
    I just adore Ingrid Starnes' Ida Dress in blue, the silk is so tactile; and the Missoni Montgomery throw is my Tessuti fav (although as a Mum the WeeBits travel rug is so cute too..

  20. I am so excited to visit this beautiful new store! I love the Ida dress in mustard and I've been wanting the Rose knicker set in blue for ages!! From Tessuti, my favourites would definitely be all of the Missoni throws, particularly the Morrison throw! xx

  22. Such a beautiful store! I really love the Myrtle skirt.

  23. I desperately love all of Ingrid's collection, but I have a soft spot for the Eliska dress in black. It reminds me of the pleat dress from her very first collection that I love. Also, I'd be the world's happiest mum with a Missoni towel to make me feel glamorous, those stripes of colour kill me. Also it's what I have always associated Tessuti with, luxury, whimsy, and quality. Ooh la la!

  24. Ooh tough choice. Loved this collection when I first saw it, but I think the Ili dress is my favourite. Tessuti-wise, my favourite is the Trio Stack Rings by Petra Bettjeman. Gorgeous!

  25. Such a bright and bubbly store! Sad I don't live close enough to pop in and visit. I adore the Teddy Suit in Ink. Lets just say its too nice to be cheap - in my circumstances. Love love love.

  26. I love the June dress in scarlett (the pale blue looks pretty too). From Tessuti, I'd go for the Missoni Morrison throw. Would love to brighten up my bed with it.

    Charlotte Marr

  27. I want that lace teddy just so I can look at it all day long. And I think I might need one of the Missoni throws for the same reason!

    Ingrid Starnes: June dress in Stone. Tessuti: Butter Doll. Really incredible collections all around.
