Photos: style.com Femininity be damned – I always think girls look better when they’re dressed in boyish clothes (it’s one of the reasons I like Karen Walker so much). For Spring 2011, Junya Watanabe followed up on his nautical boys with a sailor-striped collection for the girls, complete with leggings under layers and white bucks on their feet (more looks below). Very few things look as good as a girl in an amazing pair of men’s shoes, and these are some of the best I’ve seen in a long time. Down with heels – up with flats!I LIKE YOU!Click to Continue!

She chose a one and a quarter inch cuff. Next, a quick visit to sign up at the Auckland Library, where, on my Dad’s orders, I attempted to borrow a copy ofClick to Continue!
Drawing: Mikhail Gherman It’s Mikhail Gherman‘s birthday today, and right now he and a crew of revelers are celebrating at a bar on Ponsonby Road. As well as being a top creative director at Publicis Mojo, husband to Karen Walker and regular mentor to me, it would seem Mikhail has quite the talent for drawing. I’ve just been sent the above picture – drawn by Mikhail in a quick-art competition with acclaimed Kiwi photographer Deb Smith.
