Wellington

Spent the last few days in Wellington with my lovely mum and aunties. The weather has been pretty disappointing but omg I have done so much shopping and found some really cool thing. Shopping in Wellington is so different from Christchurch and given more time I think I could find a whole new wardrobe here (not that I need one). One shop on Cuba street coughed up about 5 amazing dresses for me to try on in 10 minutes of searching but they all ended up being the wrong size or the wrong price. But I think if I went their regularly I'd be a very happy chicken. People just aren't as stylish in Christchurch (sorry Cantabrians). I've noticed a massive difference in male style especially. Guys here actually give a f&%#.
I found some great fabric too which I am going to rip off Kate Sylvester with. I'd buy your clothes Kate but they are just too expensive for me. I'll make up for it one day. There was this great fabric place where everything was really cheap, then they'd tally it all up at the tills and divide the total by half. Can't argue with that kind of bargain.

So Wellington= more choice, but I think it's easy to say that when you have lived in Christchurch for so many years and pretty much exhausted its second hand opportunities. I suppose I would catch up on Wellington eventually anyway.

Woah! Actually in love with those sandals and socks, it may used to be a crime against fashion, but it looks SO AWESOME. Thanks for your super lovely comment! Panda xo
