And the winner is....Me!

How often do you enter giveaways? I only enter them if I really, really want the giveaway because somehow it just doesn't seem worth the odds - and I never win so those are the odds. And given those odds I forget about the giveaway seconds after I leave my comment/entry. So it was just the most unusual and amazing thing when I found an oldish message in my inbox from Kylie at Paravent (formerly known as the artist from 3 Sheets) letting me know I had won her cushion giveaway. I must have seemed like the rudest person, just ignoring the email, not replying with even a basic thank you. Anyway to say I was dumbfounded is an understatement. I wanted these cushions really really badly. I immediately made contact fearful she had given up on me and done a redraw!
When the cushions arrive and I saw them in person my jaw dropped. They are amazing. Not just cool but handmade flawlessly. Integrity all the way! Clever Kylie and lucky, lucky me.


they are beautiful- so happy for you!

GUCCI in Auckland.

Walking up the main street of Auckland this summer I was not expecting to see each side of the road wall to wall with international luxury fashion brands. It's not that Auckland isn't fashionable — to the contrary the country is full of it's own authentic, edgy fashion and creativity (a friend puts this down to the cool temperatures and the crappy television) — it's just that this kind of distinctly European traditional luxury seemed a strange fit. Then a local explained that when the cruise liners dock in the harbour the first thing the tourists see coming off the ship are the bright glossy brands beckoning. Maybe some can afford the $3000 price tags for these dresses? Regardless I love Michel Alessandro and there was no keeping me out of GUCCI, getting to see his work live and in captivity. Clearly I was not their most hoped for customer but the Gucci staff were laid back and fun and allowed me to take these photos as well as giving me a catalogue — sealed in envelo…

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!

Zombies Hate Stuff.

Day nine since the first Intragram infusion and still feeling like I've done ten rounds in the ring. Today got sick of all the net surfing from bed and persuaded C to take me out to The National Portrait Gallery even though he had taken the day off to organise various household things that needed organising. I was too unwell to actually roam the exhibitions but we had a coffee in the cafe and then took on the book shop which has to be the best arts book shop I've encountered. Heaps of brilliant books were added to my wish list but it's this novelty one that really lit my day up - Zombies Hate Stuff. Who knew? According to the author Greg Stones zombies hate all kinds of things. They're pretty disgruntled types but what they particularly hate is kittens, clowns, weddings, sharing, re-gifting and war re-enacters. They also hate...
Hippies and...

Mannequins (and regifting).
