singing in the rain

I have not been feeling very inspired fashion wise the last few days. Spring sporadically disappears. Though the light in our hallway would dispute that...

I spent most of yesterday taking photos and loading things on Trade Me. I do have some items for Etsy as well but by the time I got all the measurements, photos etc. done for Trade Me I had no energy left for Etsy!

Instead, I spent the evening hemming vintage dresses and skirts, sewing buttons onto thrifted cardigans and coats and dancing to Rock Around the Clock in my living room. I love domesticity.

Now, I am going to indulge in watching 'Across The Universe' and drinking hot coffee on this windy Wellington day.



  1. Wellington was terrible today (Sunday)! There was even hail. I hate how so much of your fashion choices in Welly is dictated by its incredibly changeable weather.

  2. Oh ! You're beautiful !
    I love your style and your blog ! So nice !

  3. That dress is so cute! And the weather has been beyond shitty in Christchurch also.

    I just wanted to let you know that I am wearing one of your lovely bows today on the blog! I unstitched it from the headband - I hope you don't mind - and put a brooch fastening on it so that I could use it on the headband AND handbags AND hats AND etc. :D I've worn both bows dozens of times, and I love them!

  4. I like your blog very much indeed, you photograph beautifully.

  5. I loooove your dress colour, and your darling hair. :)

  6. Ana B - I know! The last couple of days have been so awful. I have been hiding under a million layers and a hat! But look outside - sun! yay!
