I also scored the cutest little photo album, in almost perfect condition :->
It was so hot for the time we were there i lived in my maxi dresses, both from Jay jay's, not a place i usually shop because the fabric tends to be a bit..well...crap, and the dresses are way too short for the likes of me!but i love these two dresses, they are so comfy on hot days!the jewlery is all from opshops, except my moonstone and silver pendant from Melbourne(which you can't see!) . The boy and i are moving there later in the year and i can't wait!
This week i have set myself the challange of NO ice cream or chocolate, i am addictted to both and it has been bothering me for a while, it will be hard, i hope i can do it!
wish me luck...
p.s i forgot, i also found the most dinky little deckchair with rockers instead of legs..for only $2.

lovely day today..the sun was shining and we had nowhere we had to be!after a lazy sleep in we took the long way out to the pokororo fair and ate crepes and ice cream in the shade( neither dickie, the boy friend, or i are equiped to deal with the sun..we burn even THINKING about it!). Later on my family turned up and we all went swimming in the motueka river...it was devine..and i got to try out my new togs!
I love this dress, it fits me perfectly after only the most basic alterations, it is made out of the lightest material and its been homemade by some clever soul...so its a one off!It has the cutest shawl collar...
I got it from one of the $2 op shops in Christchurch, there used to be three of them but now there is only the one in ferrymead...its crammed with stuff!takes ages to look at everything, but its worth it cause its so cheap and I always find SOMETHING i love! I know most the op shops in Christchurch off by heart, they are stored away in my little internal thrifting map, now so are the ones in nelson!

so, my first proper post! my camera has died so im posting an old picture...
I got this dress in kuala lumper...after travelling for months we had next to no money, but i was hanging out to buy SOMETHING other than food..so i escaped from the money grinch ( the long suffering boy friend) and ran off in the middle of a monsoon (i soon realised this was a major flaw in my plan) to one of the huge local markets, where i found racks and racks of secondhand clothes..so to cut a long story short i found 2 dresses, one i have since sold, and this one, which i wore constantly while travelling in Australia (see smaller picture)...it has the cutest little sail boats all over it!
When i got home to NZ i got mum to take it in for me...yay!
The shoes are one of my fav pairs...super comfy..Ilove the little cardy too, i found it in a clothing bin at the recycling centre, it had no buttons so i poached some off an old skirt that had died a natural death..
I spent the day op shopping today, scored the cutest little bag and a sweet wee jumper, not that i will be wearing it being as it is so darn hot!
