The uniform project- 1 dress 365 days, always a new look.
“The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for children living in Indian slums.”
Check it out and donate, what an awesome project!

During the weekend I stayed with one of my good friend’s grandparents. I have heard many stories about these people and they outlived expectations by far. They were extremely welcoming and were more than happy to share tall tales of their migration the New Zealand (via Australia on a flying boat) from Holland. One little treasure I couldn’t help but record was the amazing wallpaper they had in their home. It was in mint condition and I was informed it was original from the 70’s. I’m not sure what I will do with the patterns but I hope to use them for some kind of design; maybe a new blog design…
Anyway I thought it would be nice to share with you.

Semi permanent was on in Auckland over the weekend. I was unable to go but i hear there were some wonderful presentations. Alexiz Sinclair was a favourite and from these pieces you can see why I’m a fan. My obsession has been captured in these pieces; clouds, feathers, fashion. And all done in such a girly glamorous almost surreal style. Apparently she spoke on her difficulty finding her place between photography and fine arts.
Check out the rest of her portfolio and blog

The trailer for the fantastic book The lovely bones is released. When I first saw it I was a little disappointed but after seeing it again I believe New Zealand film director Peter Jackson has done a fantastic job. To be released in December.
