(CC) Soo Tessa, we are talking fashhhun, What drives your wardrobe decisions and how would you describe your style?
(T) I like to think of my style as a reflection of my personality, I lean towards vibrant colours, texture and fabric, If it’s bright it makes me happy.  Comfort is key in picking out any new pieces. I’m a sucker for baggy tees and oversized jumpers. 



(CC) What do you love most about calling Taranaki home and being part of the Bleached, CC and Hippie Slang family?
(T) The scene and the people. It’s so peacefully beautiful and I love the chill vibe. Everyone’s so warm and friendly around these parts.
(CC) Describe a perfect day here in Taradise?
(T) My perfect day is hanging at Back Beach, Tanning, Swimming, Attempting to surf. Meeting a friend for coffee at my fav spot.. Bleached ;) Taking my camera for a walk in nature, PSA No joke my not so secret fave hobby is rollerblading along the coastal board walk, followed by a few drinkies at Fredric’s. Every great day must end watching a West Coast sunset.


(CC) Any recent sources of inspiration you would like to share with us?
(T) My guilty pleasure is trawling Pinterest. I like taking my camera along with me and challenging myself to find new perspectives. I have been watching my boyfriend and his mates surf a lot lately which is great motivation to get out there and learn more. I have recently been listening to the Common Chaos podcast which is a healthy reminder to have fun, never take life too seriously and just to go with the flow.
