Starving for Fashion...

I've been starving for fashion. Not in the sense that I eat poorly, so I can buy designer goodies and Vogue magazine. But in my mind, it hasn't been stimulated, and I am not surrounded by sartorial splendor, artisticly beautiful nor frivolous things. There is no glamour. The most exciting thing about my life lately is Gossip Girl pirated/streaming on the internet and vintage fashion blogs. (Exception -- the occasional eye-opening road trip across the country! I wish this happened more often, but for now I'm uninspired, messy & stuck in the city.)

I know there are many more important things happening in the world/NZ right now, but these are some of the things I miss. I have lived on this island now for some 2.5 years. It's very hard to pull a great look together for a lot less. It's a very expensive city that I live in. Imagine $10 -$15 meals at fast food take out joint. $5for fresh orange juice. $100 for a decent quality dress.

LSL & I went to the Auckland Museum, and we freaked out over these beautiful vintage pieces. In this particular part of the museum, we saw the various decades of New Zealand fashion & designers.

All New Zealand made!

Oh how I miss thrifting back home! I miss how accessible this stuff used to be. & how I wish Chris & I could do a cross country road trip thriting in various op shops.

I found my old nautical inspired knit dress that reminded me of something Anna Karina would wear. I love that kind of stuff. I should start caring again.
