Wow, how is it June already!? Where did the first half of the year go!?
Actually, hell, where did this week go… Friday is nearly over and I haven’t even finished this post! Well Happy Friday everyone… hope you all are keeping cosy and not letting the winter blues bite too hard!
♥ She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry – a brilliant doco about the women’s liberation movement with loads of great footage and interviews… I watched this at the Film Festival last year and now it’s on Netflix! Actually on the same theme…
♥ Netflix. I’m an addict.
♥ That crisp cold fresh air (between leaving the house and walking to the car, it’s the perfect dosage of cold)
♥ My Kindle PaperWhite… makes making a blanket nest and reading under the covers ultra easy
♥ Vintage robes… I feel much it’s much more acceptable to wear nightwear during the day if it’s pretty and vintage, right?
This week’s style collection is all about one of my favourite patterns – houndstooth! Big and bold, or small and subtle this black and white pattern adds classic vintage flair to any outfit. Keep it monochrome with black and white accessories, play it up with pops of red or even pair with other patterns! All of the items in the collection below are available from shops and sellers right here in NZ … click through to my Polyvore to find the links to each item 🙂
I’m wearing a lot of 60s and 70s vintage this winter! And tights, berets and turbans!
A few things that are on this weekend! The Rocking Roller Coasters will be playing some good old 50s rock n roll tonight from 7pm at the Portland Public House in Kingsland – if you had an awesome time dancing to these guys at the Blue Moon Ball, head along for a boogie!
Bands for Blankets: From 7pm Sat 4th June at the Thirsty Dog
“It’s getting cold out on the streets, winters coming and there are more and more people finding themselves living rough.
Due to the overwhelming success of last years ‘Bands For Blankets’ event we have decided to make it an annual affair.
Please bring blankets or winter coats as a cover charge to see this years bevy of bands who are giving their time and talent kindly for this community-based charity event.”
Featuring the epic rock and rollers Labretta Suede and the Motel 6 as well as lot’s of local bands, head along for a great night out that can make you feel a little warm and fuzzy inside… and keep someone else warm too!
