NZ â€œnew vintageâ€ purveyor Oops Oh My seems to be a local distributor of Chic Star, a popular Chinese “new vintage” manufactory. And that’s good â€“ I just wish theyâ€™d sell the full Chic Star range. The clothes have good reviews online. On Oops Oh My, prices are good, delivery/returns for those of us in NZ are easier with a local distributor, and they have regular and plus sizes. Oops Oh My is looking for NZ models wearing the clothes, too.

The New York Times hosts a cerebral discussion about “wild nail polish”.
A reminder that Frolic Lounge is on tomorrow, and I’m the lucky emcee. After the dress rehearsal, I can tell you this is one naughty and different burlesque show.
Can it be, another burlesque event in Wellington, so soon? Yes! Next Saturday, July 9th, at Mighty Mighty bar on Cuba Street,Â is Dr. Sketchy. I doodle and sketch myself â€“ just finished a cartooning classâ€“ so I am WILDLY EXCITED to be helping out as the hostess for a Dr. Sketchy featuring Belleâ€™s Beauties! There are three beautiful girls, who will be dancing, then posing for drawings and paintings. Plus chocolate, plenty of tables, and prizes for Best Dressed and for the victors of two drawing contests. The bar staff at Mighty Mighty is happy to provide water glasses for brushes to gouache and watercolor artists. All that, and this may be the best-lit burlesque event youâ€™ll ever attend.
I’m not the poster artist for this one; the girl on the poster, the lovely Chantal, is one of the models you can expect.
