It seems for the past two weeks i literally haven't had a chance to stop and think about anything in the lead up to the new webstore launching (which has been online since last Thursday), except for one thing - the QLD floods. I can't seem to watch the news anymore without being deeply upset by not only the damage these floods have done to Queensland but also to the families who have either lost everything they own, their home, or a loved one. It's something i think a lot of us could not even imagine and something that a lot of people wouldn't try to.

I would like to dedicate this post to the QLD flood relief appeal to try to help in any way possible to raise awareness of this devastating crisis happening just one state away from my own home.
I am pleased to tell you all i will be donating 25% of all sales from my next collection to the QLD Flood relief appeal and have also donated the amazing yellow vintage dress (seen in the 'extraordinary' post) to PedestrianTV.com who will be auctioning it off to help raise money for this cause, along with many other amazing 'money can't buy' items from Marie Claire magazine, Mycatwalk.com and Ellery, just to name a few. PedestrianTV have just launched their online auctions today and will be listing items daily for the next fortnight, which you can place your bids here.

I am so happy i can help support such a wonderful cause and can only hope you will too. I think we can afford to go without that extra hair cut, pair of shoes, or night out on the town for the people who really need to be shown right now that with our love and support everything is going to be OK. If you would like to donate money to the QLD flood relief appeal you can donate here. Please give generously if you can, every dollar counts in times like these.

  1. So good to see everyone rally behind those affected in QLD. I'm sure that yellow dress is going to be auctioned off for a lot.

  7. This is really lovely of you Nicole! It's so fantastic that so many people outside of QLD care so much :) It's really nice to know right now. Although my house is fine, many of my neighbors lost everything and it just makes me want to cry :(

  10. These photo's are very lovey, yes I also feel so bad for the victims involved with the queensland floods but the community has really done an outstanding job of cleaning up.
    I'm so much in love with your blog/tumblr, when I found out you were following me on tumblr I almost died.

  11. Yeah I can't believe they've been joined by flash flooding in other states too. How scary for them. 30 billion dollars to fix. It'll be a tough one
