Auckland Street Art in NY Times

My friend Jenna recently sent me this article from The Moment – The NY Times Fashion and Design Blog. It’s a brief look on Auckland street art. After reading it and looking at the photos, I wouldn’t say it is a very good representation of what Auckland has to offer, but you can judge for yourselves.

New Boutique in Auckland

My good friend Vicki is opening a fashion boutique in Midtown Auckland! I met Vicki at her last boutique, Circle Fashion, off of High Street during my bathroom breaks at the now defunct Toy Kong. We struck up a conversation about tokidoki art toys and soon after she learned my affinity for bows and ruffles on pretty dresses. Her fashion taste is second to none. She shut up shop in the Canterbury Arcade and headed for Europe, where she tracked down some of the hottest fashions around, which she’s brought back to share with you. She’s also a big supporter of New Zealand-made clothing and introduced me to the owner of Oui Boutique on K’Road, Louise, whose designs are beautiful and versatile.

Vicki’s new boutique has a very magical name,¬†The White Forest and is guaranteed to pull all the fashion punches. Ladies, get yourself over there and tell Vicki that Team Sweet sent you. ;)
