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.

in a crowd

The scene at the Stolen Girlfriend’s Club afterparty in Auckland with the lovely Anna, Dan, and a whole bunch of amped people…crowded to the point of camera focus issues. Sorry about that. Well, and for posting this a month late. Did a quick change into this dress at Anna’s house after the show but stayed with the same everything else. Ankle boots and faux fur match everything in my book.

So yes I went on this inexcusable Bebe rampage last month. It started out innocently enough with a slight desire to check out a pair of shoes but all these strappy chained things made it into the dressing room somehow, which by the way came complete with one of those overly attentive liplined salesgirls and subzero temperatures. The zipper all the way up the back was the clincher but I think I’m set on mall shopping for a good while. Go Colin for both picking out this particular dress for me and catching me eating in a parking lot..someone commented that this coat reminded them of Kid Rock. Going to go ahead and take that as a compliment since the guy’s an American legend and I used to have some kind of disgusting crush on him. And yes I do read all the comments! Always have.

I’ve always wanted a chair like this. Except mine would be strung from the ceiling. And lucite. I remember reading that Kelly Osbourne collected them or something, which made me very jealous.

Colin and I are working on a..hmm…extracurricular blog project and we need a bunch of questions from you guys to work into it. The answers won’t be posted on here but they will be answered in a way that you will see them of course. Ask away!

PS I’ll take the first ten tweeted to me.

Devonport, NZ. We were advised by the geniuses behind Lonely Hearts to make sure to explore around here and though the wind pierced my coat, tangled my hair, and made my eyes water, the view was unforgettable and the grass like velvet.
