Raquel Zimmerman gets Graffi-Couture.

Posted on October 23, 2009

I just saw this over at Nivin in the Crates and had to repost because of these crazy shoes! Plus because Raquel Zimmerman looks hot. Plus she is rockin’ some pretty extreme outfits.

Balenciaga Resort 2010.

Posted on October 23, 2009

These pics are old but I am posting them now because I am feeling spring in the air. I am also feeling summer – only a little bit (- the appearance of the sun does not fool me, it’s still damn cold outside), but it’s enough to get my mind thinking about expanding my summer wardrobe. I can’t wait to be able to leave the house without 2 cardigans. Resort collections. You either love ‘em or you hate ‘em. I love them. Especially these outfits from Balenciaga’s Resort 2010.

St Jerome's Laneway comes to Auckland – UPDATED

Posted on October 20, 2009

This year and last year I went to Australia to go to St Jerome’s Laneway Festival. Laneway tours around Aus and is like a really small big day out where everyone is over 18 and all the girls have red lipstick and fringes. And all the guys have tight pants and raybans – in other words, it’s full of hipsters. This year they had Girl Talk, Architecture in Helsinki, etc etc. It was okay. Last year they had Broken Social Scene, Feist, Dan Deacon, Okkervil River, etc etc. – it was awesome. ANYWHO, next year line-up was announced recently and based on that, I have no plans on crossing the ditch, but I have just discovered that if I change my mind, there will…
