Oh my Teer! A Guest post by Teer Wayde...

October 22, 2015 1 Comment

The following is a guest post from the absolutely drop-dead-gorgeous Teer Wayde. For the uninitiated, Teer is a Melbourne-based fashion fiend and plus size model with attitude, style and glamour for days. She's also part of the Erstwilder family. But we'll let Teer explain how that came to be... 

A few months ago I had a phone call that made my week! On the other end of the line was the adorable Marc from Erstwilder with a brilliant idea. Now as you now know for the most obvious of reasons (hence why I'm on here!) Erstwilder has finally launched their own online store and it was only a few short months ago that I was jumping with excitement over the news which was super secret at this point.

After being a huge fan of the brand for a while now and continuously falling in love with the adorable little critters and items that are released each season it only seemed fitting that we would finally team up. Together we worked out a plan and everything was set in motion to snap a few hundred or two images of the stunning range in stock for the website. Other than being super excited about the shoot I have to admit I was dying to get into Erstwilder HQ more than anything. I got to met the team, learn more about the product and got the sneaky previews of the new website before it went live.

Armed with boxes of adorable stock and my dear friend and photographer, we set out on a sunny afternoon to shoot each and every item we could possibly shoot. Pairing different styles with different outfits, colours with complementing fabrics and hairstyles with accessories we had it all planned. Through this whole process I ended up falling in love with so many more items, learned how cute they can look with a variety of different looks and became obsessed with the whole new range of Travel goodies.

My stand out favourites shot on the day have to be these:

How adorable is this lovely little orange cow? Accessorizing up with her as she accessories herself. I love how well this shade pops on my bright red top.

Now I absolutely adore foxes and tend to buy anything I can get my hands on including the adorable range here but this little lady won my heart. She's larger than most of the brooches and is a real statement piece.

Well done guys, you've now turned me into a huge fan of the statement necklace! I've always shied away from big statement pieces as I have a large chest but with the right top, they are brilliant! This style is definitely on my lust list.

Then finally one of the most adorable styles we shot. I love how creative the designers have become and how many two piece brooches you can now find in the range. This balloon style is so sweet and will look amazing with shirts, cardigans, dresses and more!

These are Teer's favourites... what's your favourite Erstwilder design? And if you are yet to start your collection, which do you have your eye on?

Love the Peanuts pins

Snoopy is a very special character and the pins are fantastic

Pretty pastel

Got these to go with a couple of my pink brooches and they look great. I love wearing matching earrings with brooches

Perfect brooch.
Adorable doggie to add to my pack.

Pleasantly surprised? You bet!

I've been aware of Erstwilder for a long time, seeing their beautiful brooches online and seeing some of my friends and customers wearing them (I work in retail). I thought they weren't for me; brooches are something your granny wears to a family get together! Until I actually sat down one day and had a look at their website. I immediately fell in love with the collection. There's something for everyone, whether you love an extra pop of colour or a little something quirky on your outfit. I ordered the "Puss In Books" brooch and thought I would spice my order up with a "Lucky Dip" brooch. I'll be honest, I was skeptical at including a lucky dip to my order. I thought that I would be given something from a really old and unpopular collection that has been sitting around for ages that just can't be sold. But I was pleasantly surprised when I received the gorgeous "Favourite Flower" brooch from the Floral Affair collection. It literally felt like the person packing my order thought "who doesn't enjoy getting surprise flowers delivered to their door!" and knew it would make my day.
1. The colours and details; so beautiful, you definitely get what you see in the pictures.
2. The packaging; these are works of art and deserve their own little boxes to protect them and be displayed. Bonus points as well for being able to buy extra boxes online for when you lose or damage a box. Not only do they come in their own little boxes, but the packaging that the full order arrives in is gorgeous. It's easy to see that a lot of care goes into packing each order.
3. The craftsmanship; these aren't just cheap resin brooches. To see them up close, you finally understand why they have the price tag they do and why Erstwilder is well known.
4. Speedy shipment; pretty sure my order went out the next day and arrived very fast.
5. There's nothing else like them! You know an Erstwilder piece when you see it.

1. They can be a bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for; high quality, beautiful packaging and fast shipping. They are worth the investment. These are brooches I will have forever.

The blue is absolutely stunning! Love this one.
