I don't think I'm going to blog for a bit.

Posted on February 22, 2011

And for me, it just feels wrong to write about how great my holiday is going or clothes I want to buy or other stupid stuff that really has no bearing on anything when all this stuff is going on.

The other day I was kindly invited to a preview of Alexander Wang’s new flagship store in Soho. There was a 30% discount on everything. I restrained myself from buying some boots (below) which was good, considering I am already over the luggage weight limit and teetering on the edge of being at my credit limit. These are some of the things I saw:

At least 3 New Zealand girls are going to London.

Posted on February 18, 2011

This morning I noticed that three New Zealand girls are part of the  VIVA F/W 11 London Women Show Package – Stella Maxwell, Jessica Clarke and Emily Baker. This means we have at least three very capable Kiwi’s doing the rounds in London (and beyond). Good luck girls! (PS. The VIVA show package also includes Australian’s Skye Stracke and Codie Young. Go antipodeans!)
