any idea how lorde was at tilda swinton's birthday party??!! pretty cool tbh tho
As far as I know Ella was at the MoMA Film Benefit because firstly, she was invited, and secondly, she performed.
You’re right, it is pretty cool.
2 hours ago I discovered your blog... DAMN YOU, I meant to be studying!!! But on another note.. I love your blog and the refreshing content. So, thanks I guess.
This is the best.
Do you use flash while shooting? if so, what kind? I've been wanting to buy a flash lately
Hardly ever unless I need to, in which case I hire a flash.
Does Ben try to dutch oven you in bed?
Only when I’m good.
you made me fall in love with that madewell bag, and now i've just found they don't ship to new zealand. so gutted.
Shopbop has it (but I think maybe they ran out of brown, they have it in black though) - they ship to NZ free.
Hi Katherine, I think you said once that you had a background in design. I'm thinking of studying design next year but I'm feeling more and more unsure about it. It's a pretty broad degree that'll hopefully give me a wide range of skills but I just keep hearing about the state of the jobs available and I don't think I want to be freelancing forever and have such insecurity about my finances and the future etc etc. What advice, if any, would you have for a potential design student like me?
Here’s the thing. I’m pretty sure 95% of people don’t know what they want to do. I didn’t. I just went with what I got good grades at in school and what I kind of enjoyed doing at the time. You never really know what’s going to happen, but like with anything, if you work hard and you’re good at what you do and love it, why wouldn’t you be successful? If you do all that and you’re nice and easy to work with, I don’t see why you wouldn’t get a job.
This kind of reminds me of this thing I read somewhere, about how it’s silly to worry about things that haven’t happened yet because you don’t know how you’re going to feel when they do happen. Kind of like, being angry and upset at night about having to wake up early to do a job the next day, and stressing out about it - you could wake up feeling fine, so why panic? It’s like saying something is not going to work out before it’s happened, and therefore not even giving it the opportunity to work out, you know? I do that all the time, discount or dismiss things (because it’s easier to not try and therefore never fail) but I’m trying not to!
favourite new faces in NZ right now?
A whole lot, but the one I’ve been most excited about lately is Natarsha Orsman.
How old is James?
Like, 15 or something.
Are you going to be at the Whitecliffe end of year fashion show in November? I'm in the show and I really want to hug you because ya know.
I think I got an invite to that, if I go, definitely come and say hi.
why are you obsessed with little white girls?
Oh they’re just so precious.
what are you doing for new years
Hey Katherine, is it still possible to get a hold of a "thugged out" tee from you?
We’ve actually sold out, but we’re trying to work out the logistics of doing a reprint.
Where is your lace top/ dress from that you wore on ur bday dinner? Seen from Instagram- not stalking in real life. How was your birthday?
Hey, it’s a white long-sleeve lace top and it’s from Madewell. It was part of that first (I think?) Alexa Chung for Madewell collection.
My birthday was pretty good considering I kind of hate birthdays!
