There's no crying in baseball. At least according to Tom Hank's character in the movie, A League Of Their Own, when he made a teammate cry after yelling at her for an ill thought throw. It's one of my favourite lines from this movie and I quote it every time I don my Peaches uniform.
Anyone else love this movie as much as I do? It's so fun and inspiring. I'm always a fan of bad ass women doing Read More
DON'T YOU HATE PANTS?! *flings pants across the room*. Ok hate is a very strong word. But I think we can all agree what a challenge it is to find a good pair? I remember being so picky about this even as a wee tweenager. Apologies to my mumsy for what must have been some of the worst back to school shopping adventures that a mother could ask for. I've always been more of a skirt/dress girl myself but even I know that some days you just need pants. There are so many factors in how they look/fit, and everyone's body is very different from the next. One of my biggest complaints Read More
Back in the fall I sewed up a storm for my first ever indie market. It was exactly what I needed to push myself to get creative with my oversized fabric stash and finally make some of the design ideas in my head come to life.

Holy hanna guys. It's been like.....forever since I posted something. Apparently it takes this gal 3.5 months to get over a Euro-hangover. I think my head is properly screwed back in place now, and I'm happy to report my sewing nook is back up and running! I have lots of goodies planned for this space so hopefully my readers are still out there. Mom? Can you see this? Good. Read More
Just a few weeks before New Years my crafty pal Katryna, of Boots and Cats, messaged me asking for some sixties inspired suggestions for a new years eve outfit. She had been holding onto a few metres of vintage brocade fabric and wanted to make something era appropriate with it. I went through my picture file, sent some photos, and offered up a few ideas that I thought would be cute. And then I thought.....hey! I TOO have some amazing vintage brocade fabric that would be perfect for NYE! Read More
Welcome to my cutesy go-go world. I've "hummed and hawed" about starting a blog forever and I'm finally taking the plunge!! I'm not particularly tech savvy but I am pretty particular, so finding a host site that was easy to use but still allowed me to have full control of the aesthetic and layout was definitely a challenge. Thankfully, a smart fella introduced me to Squarespace and with a few pointers....voila! Vertigo Go is born!
The short story of Nicole A Go Go (that's me!) is that I'm Read More
