The second day of NZFW kicked off with one of my favourite shows of the week, Ruby, where we enjoyed some fresh beverages prior to the show. It was the perfect way to start what was going to be an intense day of back to back shows starting with Ruby, Celine Rita, Jimmy D, Lonely Hearts, Trelise Cooper and finishing with Stolen Girlfriends Club in the evening. Oddly enough the highlight of our day wasn't the amazing shows we saw but in fact the amazing news we received a few hours before our flight. Originally we were scheduled to fly out after Jimmy D to go straight to New York but after meeting Len Brown, the mayor of Auckland, he arranged to cover the costs of changing our flights so we could attend the full week of NZFW. I'm not going to tell you how much this was but let's just say it was something I never thought possible! Incredibly kind and incredibly surreal. New Zealand really is a beautiful place and home to some of the nicest people I've ever met. Now off to catch up on all my blog posts!

  19. How much did Len Brown pay is a question Aucklanders want to know. What did you have to do for it? Was it from his own money or the ratepayers of Auckland

  32. What did you have to do to get the money from Len Brown? Was it a personal donation, or have the Auckland ratepayers sponsored you?

  45. That is great for you that your flights were changed, Len Brown is obviously a nice guy, however were you thinking if being just as nice and donating any money back to New Zealand? The have suffered many earthquakes recently and I am sure that making sure a fashion blogger stays in their country is the least of their worries..?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow, you lucky thing! What an experience! And only you could pull off red and pink... amazing.

  51. Everything about this outfit is perfect for fall, but even better because it's colorblocked! I've never been a crazy pink and red fan but you tied it together perfectly with the difference in textures and the matching red lipstick.

  57. Edit: It wasn't tax payers money but instead a wonderful gesture by New Zealand Tourism. After the earthquakes I think it's a way to promote NZ as a safe holiday destination whilst being fashion forward and focused.
