Feeling Spring

Here are some pics I took for a magazine article about the company I work for and the new clothing line we are working on. The cute aqua dress with ruffly bow, the creamy lace dress with blossom bib, the sleek grey coat and the gossamer style cowl are all made of luscious kid mohair and Lara De Lange modeled them beautifully. Ain't she pretty!
I saved my favourite shot for last, isn't it lovely?

I've been dreaming about this idea for months now, and have finally taken action and made this necklace. It is the first in a series of three which I hope to finish by tomorrow. I want to wear them in the Big Apple. The necklace is a miniature ornate frame in perspex with a gold backing and vintage lace. I added the little metal mesh bow which I found at Bead It, isn't it cute? Will post the other two as soon as they are done. Ooh and I spoiled myself with a new camera. My old one broke and that explains why my last few posts have just been inspiration pics from the internets tee hee! So there shall be plenty postings of creative goodies in the near future.

Only two more sleeps! I'm so excited YIPEE! Can. Not. WAIT! xxx

I need New York I know I need unique New York

So its off to the Big Apple for me in two weeks and I'm dumbstruck with amount of amazing things to do! So many! Google maps and have been my sneak previews into the breathtaking city that is New York and I can't believe I'm going. I've been asked to go for work to attend Accessories, The Show (1-3 August 2010 at the Javits Centre) to show some of our new products and colours. So, I have two days holiday I've been doing a lot of research as to what I want to see and where I want to go, but there's just so much! So here's my proposed list of touristy things to do (I'm the luckiest, thank you stars!):

The Museum of Modern Art

It's one of the art museums I've always wanted to see, along with the Guggenheim which is also on my list. I want to see all the beautiful masterpieces that I learnt about in History of Art.

Top of the Rock

Not only is it the setting of one of my favourite TV shows (30 Rock), but the view of the entire city is sure to blow one's mind.

New York Botanical Gardens

Nothing like getting in touch with nature than in the middle of a gigantic bustling city. This greenhouse looks like a heavenly piece of lacy architecture, I wish it was my home.

Broadway Theatre District

I don't know if I'll have the time to see a show, but I definitely want to do the walking tour around this area. It looks like it has that magical stage feeling that makes my heart jitter like school plays.

5th Avenue

And Madison Avenue and Fashion Avenue and all those wonderful places for people like me who love fashion. I plan on doing a tour of the whole garment district...and loving it.

Greenwich Village

I hear its the food and cultural hotspot and is also a great place for shopping. I'm there.

Well here's hoping I get to see all these lovely things and loads more, I'm going to have to do some serious time management and plan this trip to the minute. I've got my comfy sneakers packed.

Please give me suggestions if you know of any other spectacular spectacles worth having a look at. I really would like to know if there are any good gigs happening while I'm there but can't seem to find anything out online. Ideas are welcome.

Blueberries or Peaches?

I'm trying to decide whether do dye my hair beautiful blue or pretty peach... The peach is more subdued and is closer to my natural colour (sort of), but the blue is just so exquisite!! Decisions!

A whole year and a day...shew

Can't believe I've been writing little posts on this here blog for 366 days. Well not everyday, but still. So here are some piccies from my 'Inspiration' folder, which I've been collecting for a while. I can't reference them unfortunately because I always forget to make notes of where I find pictures. So *credit* to everyone who is involved. Oh I remember some of them now. Amor Coetzee, The Advertising Archives, Lula, Mademoiselle Robot, Tavi, The Neverending Story,

Oh my goodness, image overload. Sorry :) And, oh, I have some other good news. I got a job as a knitwear designer! Its a company that makes mohair products and have now put me in charge of their new fashion division. How exciting! I've been working there for about three weeks now and its been fun!! I actually get excited to go to work and feel sad when I have to leave, weird. So as soon as I find out if its okay to blog about what I make at work, I will upload some pics. We're doing an exhibition at the Alliance Francais for a month starting this weekend, anyone in the P.E. area, pop in and see. I'll be sharing the space with the lovely Steph from Silverspoon and Tasha from Swallow Me Whole. Come see! xxx
