Another Day, Another Dollar...

20th July 09

It's been busy busy busy around these parts! Last weeks event went spectacularly well, it was crisp, cool, sunny and everyone seemed to love it.

The thing about some of the events we run is that they have pockets of intense labour and I mean intense - lifting, moving, shoving, picking up, getting dirty, muddy and sweaty (ahem, I mean glowing) - which all occured on Thursday (day and into the late night) and Friday morning.

The weekend was a blessing, and this week it's full on again but with none of that 'glowing' malarky. It's the opening of the Dunedin leg of the International Film Festival - we have the gala opening night on Thursday, of which I have a gorgeous 40's black and white dress, thrifted just recently, to wear.

There are some AMAZING films coming to the festival this year - which is why, for the next two weeks, I'm probably going to be slightly out of action (seeing at least one film a night on week nights, and at the moment, one of my weekends has at least three films to see per day - movie overload! But great for passing away those cold winter days.).

Some of the films I am most looking forward to are Coraline (love Neil Gaiman and am most excited to see the film), Coco Avant Chanel, The September Issue, Valentino: The Last Emperor and so many more. Most of the ones I've listed are fashion related, but there are lots of amazing films that don't have anything to do with the subject too.


If you are in Auckland or Wellington, I think your leg is still going but will be over very very soon, Christchurchers - yours is on the way!

I have yet to catch up on comments and emails - soon-ish hopefully? And I have three new things for the shop which will go up on Wednesday.

  1. They canceled the film festival showing here in Hamilton ( do they think we are not cultured?) and I soo disappointed as I really wanted to see Coco.

  6. I think it is so neat that you work with a film festival! I'm a huge cinema geek (well, probably not as much as I used to be... but it's still there! ;), and it sounds so fascinating! :) Albeit, a lot of work, but interesting nonetheless!

    Your outfit is lovely! Oh, and I'm going to send you a quick email about possibly doing a little feature for your shop on my blog... ;)

  11. Love the way you have belted this dress, it's so ladylike and pretty!
    I love Neil Gaiman too! I enjoyed the Newbery book out this year, it was really interesting (The Graveyard Book).
    I marked your pumpkin skirt as a favorite for myself on etsy. I have to go measure one and see what I think about it fitting. It is so cute!

  12. Very pretty outfit, you look wonderful, my dear. (I especially like the little rows of buttons one the cardigan's sleeves.)


    Wishing you a splendid day!
