September 20-24, photography by Colin and me

Highlights: the Stolen Girlfriends Club show inside a creepy old theater, breakfast at the Hilton overlooking the water every morning, gigantic faux fur coats layered over dresses layered over pants at Zambesi, a spur of the moment trip to the top of Sky Tower with my dear friend Kris Hauser, hair bones, hijacking an Audi driver to go to Takapuna, velvet and massive corsets at Cybele, spilled champagne, a sheepskin-covered front row and perfect fuzzy sweaters at Ruby, ‘flat white’ coffee, Jimmy D’s chained tshirts and triangle bras, hourly rainbows, and a backstage raid after the Stolen show with Gala to borrow dresses for the afterparty. Much love to Marc, Anna (x2), Isaac, Dan, Luke, their beautiful wives, Liam, Kris, Max, Rachel, Anjali, and Murray.

(Forever 21 silk top and skirt, T Alexander Wang bra, Balenciaga bag, Topshop boots)

What I wore to the Salasai show..had 22 hours in LA in between New York and NZ and came home to a good sized web order from Forever 21, most of which was included when I repacked. The simple black skirt fits perfectly, very straight to the knee and flared the rest of the way down, and the top filled a long standing Chanel-induced star print void in my wardrobe.

(Therese Rawsthorne dress, vintage slip, Zara jacket, vintage bag, BCBG Mendel boots)

I’m not sure quite how to classify this Therese Rawsthorne piece..I definitely thought it was just a sheer long dress with a cool curved waist when I held it up off the rack at Black Box and even when I tried it on I must have stuck both legs through one hole (this was after enlisting both Colin’s and Anna’s help to figure out how to put it on) because I left convinced I had bought a dress..tried it on the next day and turns out it’s some sort of extreme sheer trousers hybrid. SWEET. I celebrated with a small jig. We took these shots during a couple free hours spent getting our last dose of New Zealand coffee (so good) and walking around aimlessly.

Waiting to head to the opening ceremony the first night of NZFW..lounging in the lobby of the Hilton and trying to look alive after the most disorienting of flights and time changes, wearing Bodkin sweater, vintage hooded jacket, Forever 21 black stone ring, 3.1 Phillip Lim leather shorts, fashiontoast x Dannijo Loveless ring, and BCBG Mendel boots.
