Street Styling You.

Over the weekend I discovered the street style bloggers of my new city. 

It seems to be a loud secret that every city has their own blog with self chosen local style ambassadors that go out and about looking for fahionistas in their natural habitat, that habitat being reality. 

I love it. 
Seeing the people captured on the street just makes their style so much more alive.

I met these two Auckland street bloggers Alex & Mino (the two on the right) in the weekend and after they passed me their 'business card', I looked them up and to my inspiration and eyes delight, found their street blog Four Eyes

You can meet them yourselves here on this interview they had on the good morning show.

Since leaving Wellington, Street Style Journal has been created. 
I love following their posts which are almost all taken on Cuba St.
It oddly enough makes me miss Wellington less by being allowed to see little bits of my favourite city and it's creatures being captured in their lovely grungeness.

They all just make me want to dress up every day.

Swooning over Petals.

Uhm Helloooo.
This origami petal skirt has me completely swooning. I'm not usually a big fan of short skirts- I'm usually a Betty-Soo in love with 50s style knee length skirts.
But this...Oh Etsy, what would I do without you.
You can find the lovley creature who created the delight here.

Her name is Anna-Marie...Minkie or Minx. She taught herself to sew in college.
 I love that she loves matching things up with amazing tights, and weird mismatched blazers and cardigans

Belly in Minutes.

It's here. And it's better than what I thought it would be-and I always thought I'd love it.
It's so sad...and moving... and done so well...all in 7 minutes and 29 seconds. 
Julia Potts you are wonderful...

A French kid's Playground.

How amazing is this? A French kindergaten. The epitome of creative upbringing. I can't get over how wonderful this is and just how wonderful the person who created it is.

There's too much that I adore about this music clip.

Playboys Focus.

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I say

Y&R South Africa approached Playboy South Africa to develop a campaign aimed at overcoming misconceptions about the Playboy brand.
 Although the publication has always placed a significant focus on intelligent journalism, publishing iconic interviews and in-depth features, there has been an uninformed local myth that readers will only be exposed to pictures of naked women...

This campaign, featuring double entendres relating to deforestation, crack addiction and Silicon Valley, is being rolled out as an online campaign with print, billboard and digital to follow. “Playboy: More Than Just A Centrefold”.

I think it's brilliant.
