About

1ST-mothers-day

…is a NZ fashion blog run by me, Tannia Lee. I live in Dunedin NZ with my IT geek, slash muso, slash designer husband, our 1 year old daughter Nova and our 2 cats. I’m obsessed with anything vintage, quirky and super colourful. Since Nova arrived, she has become the star of my blog and each week we go op shopping, play dress ups and shoot the crazy colourful looks I come up with.

I started this blog because I want to capture and share the fun we have injecting more colour into our lives. To show that you and your home can look amazing shopping secondhand and by supporting your local crafters, designers and artists.
You can check out my Instagram here, where I feature favourite  parts of my secondhand styled life.  If you’d like me to feature a a special something that you have designed, created or collected for your brand or shop, please email me to discuss.

The blog also follows the ups and downs of my journey photographing a toddler (never work with babies and animals they said!) Plus sharing unique houses found around NZ and cool treasures from our shopping adventures.

I also run The Vintage Roundup. Dunedin’s only vintage clothing and craft market and popular facebook page ‘Seen in Secondhand Land’, where secondhand shoppers share treasures that are still for sale in secondhand stores around Dunedin. We have put together a map of all the Dunedin secondhand stores here. If you’re on the hunt for something, let us know on the page and we’ll all keep an eye out there for you.
