A cheerful collection, for cheering up

Just came upon this gem of a designer 'Nadinoo' on the blog Fancy Fine. Not only do I love Ashley's post (frankly, playing vintage dress up before a night of kareoke with these two is my idea of a dream date), I LOVE Nadinoo's clothes.  I love the pastel colors, giant bows, and sailor collars.  The cute vintage inspired prints of sailboats and airplanes are exquisite... not to mention the 'bird a day print'.  This one just sent me over the top.  An ornithological themed dress?! Marry me?
Also, online, Nadinoo made up three fictional characters who go on made-up adventures in their clothes.  Super adorable.  And one last added bonus, all of Nadinoo's garments are hand made in England.  It's always nice to know where your clothes were made and who made them. Check it out: Nadinoo

I'm back... and overwhelmed.

Hello, sorry I have been gone for so long.  I just got back from my island trip and a short hiking vacation with my boyfriend last week.

Seems that the world has been flipped on it's head since I've been gone.  Oil spills, worldwide anti-corporate greed protests, islands going without water because of climate change... Needless to say, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to keep up with the world.  Especially since the oil that is spilling into the Bay of Plenty is washing up on the shores of one of my study sites, Moutohora Island.  This pristine island is a sacred Maori pa site where hangi stones are collected, also its one of the largest colonies of Grey-faced Petrels in New Zealand.  My heart is aching.

Anyways, once I regroup, I will post some picture from my travels and get back to fashion blogging!
