Besides the fact that she has an awesome name, there are more reasons why you should be following Tithi Kutchamuch. The main one is the fact that she is an amazing designer. Tithi is based in London and amongst other things, she creates some clever, clever jewellery (more below).

I just received an email letting me know the schedule is up for the World Cinema Showcase (the festival I was talking about the other day). As well as letting me know the schedule was up, the email also informed me that Tom Ford’s ‘A Single Man’ (see the trailer here) is the opening night film! How awesome is that?! Picture Me AND A Single Man. Book your tickets from Monday!
The Auckland schedule for those two films is below, the schedules for everything and everywhere else are here.

UPDATE: I’ve worked out how to get the video on here, so I’ve posted it below!

I have literally, literally, LITERALLY been checking the Oliver Peoples blog every single day (and sometimes twice) since they first announced their 2010 campaign featuring Elijah Wood and Shirley Manson (of Garbage fame).
Every. Single. Day.
So why is this a big deal? I can tell you exactly why. If you were interested enough to click on the link to the announcement, you may have noticed the date that it was made:
September 26th 2009.

The humidity of late is the bane of pretty much every Aucklander right now, but it’s actually kinda nice for me. Being the perpetually cold freak that I am, it means things are finally at a temperature where I can be comfortable in shorts. It means I can leave the house without two jumpers. It means I can wear skirts without tights. And dresses. And these are things I want to be wearing right now – full pleated skirts and dresses (without tights), free and relaxed and easy breezy:

The girl on the left epitomizes how I want to look. The collarless shirt thing she’s got going on with the big pockets is lovely and I like how she’s rolled her sleeves up. I’m a big fan of the rolled up sleeve. That perfect pleated, button-up skirt with the scrunchy socks* and shoes is so good. It kind of reminds me of that whole school-girl look I was raving about the other day, but more dishevelled.
The Juliette Hogan dress in the middle is something I’ve got my eye on (but in navy). I like the idea of spinning around and around in it (with no tights) and seeing the whole skirt flying around, pleats everywhere (that’s what it’s all about – the spin factor). Same with the Alice McCall dress on the right. Now that looks like a great dress for spinning around in. And it is definitely a no-tights-dress. It just looks so comfortable and carefree. Like if you did happen to be spinning around and around in it, you could fall down on the grass and not be worried about wrinkling the fabric and you could laugh and feel like you were in a movie. Or something. The only problem – I don’t know if I could pull it off. I really, really wish I could – all this talk of spinning is making me giddy.

I saw this picture ages ago, and the everything about it made me want this dress:
Well, actually, it made me want the whole outfit. The whole thing from the giant top knot bun thing right down to the sandals. And the best part? The picture not only made me want the outfit, it especially, especially made me want to stand in that outfit, in that exact pose. I could just see myself, standing, arms in a half fold – perhaps at a bus stop, or outside the library or some other appropriately school-girly location. Looking nonchalant and adorable and cute and all those things.
But then fast forward a few months later, to today. I had forgotten about the photo. I’d started obsessing about other things. You know how it goes. But that’s beside the point. The point is, in today’s Viva, that dress – that Juliette Hogan ‘Pheobe’ dress – was featured in the front. I saw it this morning whilst waiting for my morning coffee, and I remembered exactly what I felt when I first saw the original picture. The feeling was a kind of mix of 10% nostalgia and 90% desire. I want that dress. I want it again.

There’s nothing like a good black and white photograph. The kind that are so good they don’t need colour. In fact, they’re better without the colour because you can almost see the colours in the black and white. If that makes sense…?

I love these shots by Greg Kadel from Numero 111. My favourite is the one above (more below). Magdalena looks gorgeous, absolutely stunning. The angles of her body, her limbs, they’re all lean and angular and just the way I like to see them. And the contrast in the photos is beautiful.
