Just Right Black & White

I never wear white, probably because growing up I was always climbing trees and rolling around with our pigs in the paddock (especially after a litter of piglets were born). We soon learned that any white clothing would return home a shade of green or brown, so it was pretty much banned from my wardrobe.

Mermaiden

I scored this whimsical 90s mermaid print dress from my friends shop Fox Brownie Retro on a recent trip to Wellington. Inga was always very supportive of Most Wanted Vintage when it was in Aro Valley and it was cool to have the roles switched where I was the customer shopping for gems in her lovingly handpicked vintage clothing shop. She also sells her own designer label Recidivist in store too along with Continue Reading

Tassels & Teals

Currently 5 months preggers, Iv’e been growing out of everything I own at quite a rapid pace. This has led me to wearing the same dress over and over which drives me crazy! I’d heard stories about this happening, resorting to that same comfy item that resembles a sack, but didn’t think it would happen to me, especially with the Continue Reading

Double Hubble

Woohoo, double the celebration tonight as we have reached the halfway mark with Bugsy in the belly and it’s my Aunty’s 60th Birthday, so were off for a fancy meal at No 7 Balmac. I thought I’d wear this gorgeous purple tie dye velvet dress with much growing room for the bump and along with the already decided dishes I’m going to order at the restaurant. What some fashion photographers may encounter is Continue Reading

The Year I Loved & Lessons Learned: 2014

A look back at the highlights and lessons learned in 2014…

WORKING AT THE CUCKOO’S NEST –  ETHICAL BOUTIQUE

I loved working here, where I was encouraged to run free with my creativity to put together shop displays and window outfits. It felt great to work for an ethical business, with great staff, supporting locally handmade jewellery, crafts, clothing, up-cycling and vintage wares. I wish more Continue Reading

Crazy Christmas Traditions

Well I survived my first sober Christmas (in yonkies) due to the bun in my oven and it was just as fun as always. The silly family photo has become a Bruce Clan tradition over the past few decades. Pulling a silly face at our house doesn’t quite cut it tho, so it has evolved into Continue Reading

HAPPY HOLIDYS

Woohoo, it’s the holidays! Growing up we always wore our absolute favourite outfits on Christmas day. Sometimes it was the same snazzy outfit that we wore to our school disco, like our much loved frilly, fluro tiered skirts with matching tank tops from D.E.K.A. After much thought and excitement put into our outfits, we usually just spent the day stripped off in our Continue Reading

A Bun in the Oven

You may have heard I’m currently knocked up and super excited to finally be able to share the news! Gone is the stress of making up excuses why I can’t attend your social event or have you around for dinner.  The truth is, I wasn’t avoiding you I’ve just had really bad Continue Reading
