Bill Cunningham New York

On the weekend I went to see Bill Cunningham New York. At first I didn't think it would be much to see.

I was very, very wrong. This movie is an absolute must see!
And I'm not just saying that - I actually walked away after the movie feeling different about life. Is that weird?

This movie is really a documentary on the life of Bill Cunningham.
In case you don't know who he is, Bill Cunningham is an 80+ year old man living in New York, working as a fashion photographer for the New York Times, specialising in street photography.

He hits the streets everyday getting around purely on his little bike, taking photos of stylish men and women. Whilst might I add, using a film camera still! Check out the trailer above to see more, because I really could go on and on about this amazing docco.

Bill Cunningham New York has limited screenings and is probably not on for much longer, so make sure you check it out!
If you do go and see the movie, comment and let me know what you think of it!

You can also see his work with the New York Times via the link below:

City Living

I had to start work extra early today so the city was nice and quiet for once. Here are some snaps I took while walking to work.

Vintage Denim

Vintage Denim. Is there any other kind?

I have a growing collection of vintage denim pieces, particularly high waisted shorts.
Op shops and eBay are the best places to find these.You'll more than likely find vintage denim as jeans, but with a bit of practice you can cut them into great one-of-a-kind shorts.

Now this last multi coloured denim pair are technically not vintage as it is Bubblegum brand that I bought at City Beach about a month ago. However the amazing fabric is vintage. Really, it is legit vintage fabric. There were only limited amounts made of these shorts in the original vintage fabric!

Bleaching denim is another great way to add a bit of interest. This yellow denim vest was originally a 'dirty' denim jacket. I cut the sleeves off and then soaked the whole thing in a bucket of bleach for a day or so and it came out this amazing peachy colour!

Pleased to meet you.
