Ree Smith's Profile

About

Thank you for visiting "our" shop. I am Ree and Minnie comes from the name of my company - named after my great grandmother - Minnie Faux Ltd.

I believe that wearing lovely and good-fitting clothing helps make busy women feel good about themselves. The feel of some fabrics and the colours and patterns of others makes the wearer feel positive, attracts compliments and gives that little extra joy from wearing them. Therefore I design clothing and accessories that are full of touch, colour and pattern; are flattering and comfortable to wear; and help solve everyday problems with fit and practicality … beautiful things to make your life easier.

It all started with Sonsie swimwear – swimwear for women with a larger bust. Sonsie swimwear is bright, colorful and flexi-sized with a design that is chockfull of tricks to make the boobs look smaller and to flatter the rest of the body. The range includes the Sonsie tankini and Sonsie swimskirt to cover the least favorite parts of the body and each coordinating piece is sold separately to allow the woman to choose the size and what she wants to reveal or cover when wearing a swimsuit.

New Zealand merino wool is beautiful to touch and a naturally sustainable product. Merino Minnie scarves come in beautiful colours and are designed to be a scarf and a hood/head covering. The hoodie scarf can also be worn as a shoulder shrug. Merino wool is an amazing product, it is a very fine wool and the fiber keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. It is also shower resistant and flame retardant. Merino wool is unlikely to prickle or itch like other wool because the fibers are so fine and it is "odor resistant" (a nice phrase that means you don’t have to wash it often as it doesn’t stink) and long wearing. And you can wash your merino in the washing machine!

Minnie + Ree skirts are our latest innovation. The skirts are made from designer cotton fabrics and are knee length wrap skirts. They are fastened at the front with a line of snaps which enable the wearer to do up as many of the snaps as they want so the skirt can be worn high on the waist, lower on the hips or during any changes in weight or shape. They are cool to wear in the heat and winter-up nicely by adding tights and boots.

The Minnie + Ree range of lovely and good-fitting clothing and accessories is growing every day – have a look at what we’ve got – beautiful things to make your life easier!

MinnieRee.com is my website and I can be found most Saturdays at the Frank Kitts Underground Market in Wellington, New Zealand. I also go to other crafty markets - check the blog MinnieRee.blogspot.co.nz to see where we will be.

I live in New Zealand on the Kapiti Coast which is just north of the capital city of Wellington.
