{ Out & About }

Very excited for this incredible NZ film to now be showing in cinemas across the country. I was fortunate to see it at the opening of the NZFF a couple of weeks ago and was completely blown away – an amazing story and some incredible performances. A must-see film.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

{ Colour Of The Week }

Dusty shades of blue, green, pink and orange – there's something about this contrasting combination that I find quite charming!

I often drive past a public installation of Reuben Paterson's work beside the entrance to the Newmarket train station and wish our art group had bought one of his pieces. I can't resist glitter and diamond dust. Perhaps it is the magpie personality that resides in me or the fact I am a '70s baby and so is he. The installation Paterson did for the education area of the Auckland Art Gallery was a lot of fun too. Kids could view his work through a kaleidoscope and convert his glittering patterns into mirrored twisted and twirling ones, which allowed the kids to manipulate his art works. I think I had as much fun as the kids did.

{ This Week in the Office }

It's end of season sale time so Emma has been busy with artwork for adverts and in store signage for our stores.  It will be sad to see Copenhagen go but we need to make room for our upcoming Summer 2014/15 collection. And who doesn't love Summer! Here's our Britomart pop-up store looking sale-ready snapped by @britomartnz.

Shop the sale in store and online for a limited time only.

{ Snapshot }

Does anyone else remember this Cinderella book from back in the day?? 

I came across it the other day and was transported to my childhood-self immediately. Oh how I drooled over every single dress. My BFF and I used to negotiate which dress we could each bags, and fantasise for hours, completely absorbed in its pages. 

I adored the colours, the ribbons and bows and 18th century styling. I mostly recall being able to almost feel the wondrous silks and twinkling laces; all the fabrics and colours were utterly alive for me.

A 'well-loved tale' indeed. This one's for you, Rosie :)
