Blogger picnic!

So recently as Ayesha and I continued to run into each other over bottles of gin at parties all over the place, and my departure date loomed closer, we decided to arrange a little blogger get-together, featuring lots of wine and delicious food and sunshine. I'm so happy with how it all came together, I feel very lucky to have met such awesome ladies through the blogosphere.

Left to right we have Helga, Christie, Camelia, Laurel, and Ayesha.

I'm wearing a thrifted burgundy 70s chiffon dress and Goldenponies shoes, and Christie is wearing a 1960s daisy-print vintage dress and Chuck Taylors.

It was hilarious talking about the ins-and-outs of blogging and selling vintage with everyone. We discussed the weird things that people search to get onto our blogs- one of the top ones for The Velvettes is 'schoolgirl', which is a tad creepy. Ayesha said her number one by far was 'floral crown', unsurprisingly.

My new glittery Goldenponies oxfords! I adore these because the glitter is in shades of pink, red, blue, purple and silver mostly, so they go with everything in my wardrobe. I am tempted to just put them on a shelf and admire them, but they are so comfy and wonderful that I've worn them every day since I arrived. This is my second pair of Goldenponies shoes, my others being brown oxfords in the same style, and I am super happy with them. They fit beautifully and Erandi was excellent with keeping me up to date with the progress of my order. I've got my eye on oxfords in more colours too- lilac, anyone?

Needless to say, everyone looked amazing and it was such a nice day. We're all from very different backgrounds and span almost 20 years in ages, but our collective love for vintage means I could spin yarns for hours with these ladies. Thanks so much to everyone for coming!

P.S. Any Wellington bloggers want to make this happen across the strait when I move?!


  1. This looks like such a blast! I follow a few different Chch blogs so its great to see you all hanging out together:)

    I am a Wellington blogger and would be keen as mustard for a blog get together. I actually haven't met any other Wellington bloggers though - all my blog friends are in the South Island!

  2. Awesomecakes!
    I had a fab time,I love meeting lovely,like-minded ladies!
    Jaysus,I was plastered...!!!
    You took some great pix!
    Those shoes!!

  3. It looks like you guys had a whole lot of fun. I am so incredibly envious of your beautiful summer weather too! I get the feeling like afternoon picnics might not be in the cards for Auckland this year.

  4. Yesterday was so fun. It's a shame you're moving to Wellington so we can't have more picnics. Christie looks adorable in the 4th picture down. I love your pretty glittery shoes.

  5. I'd love to meet some fellow Wellington based bloggers! It's a little lonely if you don't know anyone else who is doing it. And I've only recently discovered your little pocket of Christchurch based ladies anyway, so it's just nice to know there are others like me out there!

  6. Nice pictures, I love picnic!


  7. Beautiful photos, it looks like you guys had such a great time!

  8. oh they are the oxfords i have!!! :D
