How insane is that sunset though?! I mean, it's Tuesday so this post is pretty late but my camera died so I wasn't able to get the post up which I had planned because I left my charger behind (go figure). Anyway, you guys seem to like hearing about my life even when it's pretty boring, so why not share more of my uneventful life where I can. Speaking of sharing more, I'm going to be sharing more updates over snapchat, so if you have the app feel free to add me @kendraalexandra. So here we go, my highs and lows of the past week.
Do you ever just buy something because you saw someone else wearing it and they looked really cool, but then feel like you can't pull them off yourself? Well that's what I did with these until I forced myself to pull them out again the other day. I think as much as you want to try and always 'dress for your figure' like we're told to do, culottes will always be one of those man-repeller pieces. So once you accept that no one will be looking at 'dat ass', rejoice in the fact they're like adult day appropriate pyjamas and this is an essential if you want to leave the house (probably to get food) in the middle of a three hour marathon of Friends brought to you from the comfort of your bed. You're welcome.

As you've probably seen me mention, last week I worked in collaboration with Glassons to capture Dunedin's street style as it was iD Fashion Week. Basically, I wandered the streets with the lovely Emily, taking photos of anyone with cool style wearing Glassons and everyone snapped went in the drawn to win one of two $500 vouchers. Since I hadn't planned on doing much for this fashion week (because university has been kicking my ass) it was cool to see what people were wearing to celebrate the week. Besides from loving the clothes, it was great to work with a label that supports New Zealand talent - Glassons are currently working with Otago Polytechnic's 3rd year fashion students to develop and pitch a fashion line and from there, one student will be picked to work with the Glassons team to develop some pieces to be sold in the stores. I think this is particularly amazing because I know from my stint in fashion school, competition can be brutal and there really aren't many chances to get such a head start in the fashion industry.
This week has actually been an incredibly busy one for me for a change and I wasn't complaining. I think it's always nice to look back and see that you're making steps to move forward and to work harder, when it's so easy to just do nothing at all. It was fashion week here in Dunedin which kept me pretty busy since I was collaborating with Glassons for a competition, but I'll be posting more about that later in the week. For now though, I'm going to make myself a hot tea and enjoy hours of Netflix to end my week the right way. Keep reading to see my highs and lows of the week...
I'm in the middle of completing an assignment so I'll make this post pretty short but I've collected my favourite things I've seen on ASOS lately and thought I'd share. I'm always searching that site because A. it has absolutely everything and B. it has absolutely everything really cheap and C. I'm exceptionally good at procrastinating. In fact, I'm pretty sure everything on this post is under $100, mostly under $50. That site can be overwhelming with so much to choose from so here's what has made it into my saved items this month. Must. Reframe. From. Purchasing.
Sidenote: if you are living in the Dunedin area and are interested in winning one of two $500 giftcards from Glassons, I'm roaming around the streets from the 22nd-24th April taking photos of people wearing any Glassons and all the details can be found here.
The past week has kind of slipped away on me because seriously, it's Sunday again and my University holidays are over already. I actually meant to spend my week catching up on work but I managed to have a holiday instead. Now I'm just going to sit back, watch Catfish and eat some food. As per, the end of the week is celebrated with a highs and lows of the week post, not sure it will be all that interesting but here it goes...
