1 Lonely Hearts cutout bra/crappy Ikea mesh curtains
2 at the Process Showroom in New Zealand where I first saw the collection in September

Lonely Hearts makes the best lingerie. I failed to find the cutout bodysuit from this collection but was stoked to see that one of my favorite stores Bona Drag had ordered some pieces.

It’s been hot for the past couple days…triblend romper hot. Kind of disgusting, but fun for acai bowls in the grass. Felt pretty prepared with a blanket and all but turns out full-on pavilions are de rigeur these days. Where are people even buying these things? I never see them for sale in stores. Cause you know I want one. I may or may not settle for a tent with lots of zippers.

Shakuhachi gave me a reason to love pink. Australian designers just keep on coming out with those pieces that are as wearable as they are different.

I’m really picky about tortoiseshell shades but these are perfect and feel vaguely know, unlike my 9,000th faux fur collared coat I have on here…anyway, they were a gift via my trip to New Zealand fashion week along with my favorite round pair. Finally thrifted a long black skirt (sorry, won’t say ‘maxi’ as much as Anna won’t say ‘bootie’..typing it in quotations doesn’t count) and painted my nails this questionable shade over lunch. Which made my sandwich taste like nail polish + I feel like I accidentally ate some off of my index finger and have been slightly depressed about it ever since.

Mini Anden styled by Camille Bidault-Waddington

My favorite part of this is that it looks like the lonely enjoyment of the fruits of a really good trip to the thrift store: basic cuffed white shorts, flimsy bits of pastel silk, and an inexplicable print here and there. What we’re really looking at: Vivienne Westwood knit bodysuit, Bernhard Wilhelm socks, Miu Miu cotton dress, Emma Cook face print dress, and a Martin Margiela dressing gown belt layered over bits of vintage lingerie. And everything I want to wear right now.
