When I left New Zealand some two and a half months ago, I was planning on being away three or four weeks tops, then flying over to America at the beginning of September for Fashion Week. Plans changed, and here I am in the States with one suitcase full of clothes and no plans to go back home. So here's the thing: I'm fine for the next four or so weeks, but as soon as the temperatures start dropping, I'm pretty much screwed. Attached is a list of clothing that I'd quite like to be teleported my way. First up, the sweater my mum knitted me for Christmas last year and my Crane Brothers heavy-weight blue blazer, as seen above. (My highly concerned facial expression is the result of a car reversing straight into another one – Parisian drivers.)
My Working Style DB blazer – pretty much the most gangsta item of clothing I own.
My one-size too small hand-knitted sweater made by the lovely ladies at Masco in downtown Auckland.
My multicoloured Zambesi scarf. (Are you kidding me? I am Queen's Boulevard.)
My Jack Spade woollen shirt jacket and Untouched World merino mink scarf.
My Crane Brothers plaid DB overcoat.
My Stolen Girlfriends Club angora cardigan.
My Zambesi baseball jacket.
My black Crane Brothers overcoat (one of only two black items of clothing I own).
My green marle Uniqlo cardigan and grey marle Standard Issue sweater.
My Little Brother duffel coat.
That R&G blazer I wish I'd bought.
My orange marle Uniqlo v neck.
James K Lowe's vintage duffel that I've stolen and worn for like two years now.
I LIKE YOU!
