You no doubt know that we love us some dressing up and vintageness, ala Amy’s 30th, so we were quite stoked to receive this from Kylie:
Vintage Clothing Extravaganza this weekend!
This Sunday 26th July 1pm onwards at the Kelburn Church Hall, 81 Upland Road
Do you want to look the part but don’t know how? Are you looking for inspiration? Do you need some new threads? Then this event is for you!
Join two of our resident vintage gurus Amy Jansen-Leen and Ness Kirkham as we step back in time to educate you on the vintage world of style from the 1920′s jazz age through to 1940′s wartime. We will cover fashion, make-up advice and hairstyling tips for both men and women and everyone will receive a booklet to take home to refer to.
We have well over a hundred pairs of shoes for sale from $5-30, several racks of vintage and vintage inspired clothes from $5-80 and lots of accessories catering for both ladies and gentlemen so make sure you bring plenty of cash along (or visit the ATM down the road before you arrive) as it is CASH SALES ONLY!

1pm – Ladies to be seated, styling session to commence

If you’re going along, do let us know how it went, please.
We received an email today from our reader Lizzie to say
Just wanted to let you guys know that a Wellington makeup/frangrance website has free delivery until end of June!. They have such fantastic prices on there and all the top brands! Cheaper than strawberrynet!
So of course I headed along to www.gracielou.co.nz to have a looksee. My credit card is very very angry with me right now for the dress I bought the other day, not to mention looming unemployment, but otherwise, I would probably be doing some shopping there right now. The Pop Beauty eye compacts are pretty, the idea of Smashbox 24 carat gold mascara really intrigues me, and there are some brands on the site I haven’t heard of before. So if you’re into that sort of thing, go nuts! And don’t forget to let us know how it goes.

Thanks for the tip Shannon!
Shannon sent us a twitter last night telling us about a huge makeup sale in Manners Mall, and today she sent us in these field reports:
- shannonq@prettyx3 Multiple tweets to follow! Definitely worth a look in – main makeup brands they have are Maybelline, Revlon, CoverGirl, Loreal.
- shannonq@prettyx3 Huge selection of lip stuff (mostly <$10). Foundations are mostly darker colours. Not much skincare.
- shannonq@prettyx3 Large range of perfumes but didn’t look terribly hard at that (too many people spraying liberally).
- shannonq@prettyx3 Three lip glosses, a L’Oreal foundation (of which they only had six – score!), eyeliner + mascara for $63! Score!
So if you’re in the area, sounds like a good thing to check out. Thanks for the reports, Shannon!
The lovely folks at Evolu have arranged for us to do some 2 for 1 deals on their gorgeous Invigorating Body Lotion and Invigorating Hand and Cuticle Cream.
They don’t mention it, but the first time I tried Evolu was stealing the products that my dad got from flying Air NZ Business Class, so you know, if you wanna smell like you’ve just joined the Mile High Club, or just, you know, want to feel good, then get your ass out to Petone. There’s lots of fun stores out there, and the French Toast at Go Bang is amazing. Woo!
Madame Fancy Pants on Cuba Street is having a sale until February 8. Here, we’ll let their image do the talking for us:
Remember how Torrid had gold Obama necklaces, and silver McCain ones? They were totally right. But if you need to stock up on a Halloween costume. how about this Palin Posse tshirt? It’s 75% off! Or maybe you need some Boob Lube by Save The Ta-Tas to go with your Man Junk? Apparently it’s for breast examinations, and 20% of profits go to Breast Cancer Research, but mostly I just love the name.
Oh yeah, and clearence is currently 50% at Torrid, but with the NZ$ at .59 of the US$, I’d be very very careful if I were you.
Oh and also, if you’re a New Zealander, please vote tomorrow. And please vote for a party that you think will do good things for women. The Hand Mirror has done an excellent job of asking candidates questions about issues that concern women, and they make for some important reading before you make your decision.
