(Two of my best friends, Alex and Laura, and my beautiful sister in law, Amy)

If someone was to ask me right now what my best investment for 2010 was i would have to say it would be the $24 i spent on these heart shaped helium balloons! They stay up for an entire week which made them the perfect little accessory for New Years Eve. I love how much fun one can have with such a small, trivial thing, and it may have even served as a handy dancing partner when everyone witnessed my poor dancing skills... Luckily my friends don't take themselves or their dancing too seriously either and helped welcome the new year by whipping our hair til 3am (ah, that may have been a personal joke, or not). What did everyone get up to? And did anyone else miss the countdown, or was that just us?

My posts seem to have slowed down, a lot, in the holiday period and leading up to the launch of the webstore so i'll apologise in advance if you don't see any outfits posts for the rest of the week! But i am putting together two new videos for the store - one of our new lookbook and one about my daily life. I thought it could be a fun way to answer some of the frequently asked questions people seem to be asking so if you have any questions or want to know something about myself or my store just leave me a little comment and i'll do my best to include it in the video :)

New stock has been photographed and will be up in the next couple of days on the GPV Facebook page so be sure to keep an eye out! I think it's my favourite stock for Gary Pepper Vintage so far..

  42. hello anon: that is a fair enough statement. i do support luke's work and would happily promote his website once it's finished. much like me he's a perfectionist and has been working on building his new site for quite some time - once it's finished you all will be the first to know.
