An obligatory Blogger Deer is in this post (and some NZ icons)

I have been having some feet problems recently - most of my winter footwear seems to make my feet hurt.  

One day my feet hurt so much I bought another pair of shoes to alleviate the discomfort.  They were not a huge improvement on the comfort level (my face in the photo below says it all) but I think they matched my outfit nicely:

 Genuine suede Italian shoes $2 from Presbyterian Support Shop.  Worn with Chagall wrap skirt $4 and Vintage Goldcrest coat.

Despite the discomfort I really love this outfit! 

 On a completely unrelated matter, I often walk from work to the main street through a carpark and an alley way.  The walls are covered in graffiti and collage as well as the original signage.  An iconic image of Sir Edmond Hillary has been there for years and years.  But was recently, partially covered over.  So I took a photo.  It wasn't until I really looked at the whole wall I realised the new image was a giant head:

The "inspirational poster" was a couple of metres out of shot.  The accidental spelling errors of sign-writers is a constant source of amusement for me.  

Now,  I want to show you an outfit I wore two Fridays ago - I know I am a bit behind in Frock on Friday so I decided to combine Dunedin grunge with cute:

 Levis maxi skirt 50 cents, iconic "Dunedin" tee shirt $2 Toffs (normal retail $150 or something equally silly) Cardigan from Hospice Shop.  Socks and shoes retail.  Kitten necklace and Hello Kitty earrings both retail. Modern and vintage mood rings, both from a school fair, polished Paua and Silver ring from Barking Fish, Port Chalmers.

 I like the bunny socks peeping out from underneath my long skirt!  At lunch time I was visiting a stationery store with a friend and found myself a little cutie:

....a bobble head reindeer!  SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Unlike my Saturday morning post last week, I am short of time today, so that's all for now.  Hope you have a great weekend!  Bye xxxxxx
