Another Day, Another Dollar...
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.
