Tithi.

Posted on February 28, 2010

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’m interested in objects that are not only seen but heard; an object that can speak for itself or I can talk about.” – Tithi Kutchamuch

Fashion Films.

Posted on February 26, 2010

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.

Oliver Peoples 2010 – the longest wait ever. UPDATED

Posted on February 26, 2010

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.

No tights.

Posted on February 25, 2010

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…

The perfect schoolgirl dress.

Posted on February 24, 2010

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…

Black and White and Good all over.

Posted on February 24, 2010

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.
