CLOTHING: "My pink Fluevog boots ($249 at John Fluevog, 242 Queen West, 416-581-1420) are my fave boots ever. My pink knee-high fishnets came from Ardene ($4.99, Eaton Centre, 416-408-0665, and others). My Brazil 7 Jeans, which I've worn a gabillion times, are part of my evening uniform ($3.99, Value Village, 924 Queen East, 416-778-4818). My necklace is a Jrox original lariat ($250, firstname.lastname@example.org). My dangly yellow earrings are from Yoka ($39, 2116J Queen East, 416-686-0836). The Muttz concert T-shirt, designed by Tara Hunt, my most bestest friend in the world, is available at www.horsepigcow.com for 35 bucks.
