[picture perfect] I'm on the left (obviously), with Steve from Semi Precious Weapons on the right. I'm wearing a Rogan for Target dress, Jeffrey Campbell multi-strapped ankle boots, black tights, KILL SHOP KILL tote, American Apparel hoodie. I was spending the entire night plotting ways to steal Steve's Hilfiger leather jacket which had ZEBRA PRINT INNER LINING! Supposedly, it was a gift from Andy Hilfiger? It looked pretty great on me. Oh and last but not least, headpiece by PON PON YEH.
