the nogoodforme.com interview: Heather Rose of Bona Drag
Clicking through online boutique Bona Drag makes me wanna go all Supermarket Sweep and snatch up every last pretty thing for myself. I'd start with the Paint By Numbers horsey tee and move on to Erica Weiner's Wolf Tooth necklace (complete with real coyote tooth!) and then probably grab me some vintage fringey black ankle boots. And for all my Smiths-crazed pals who, like Bona Drag proprietress Heather Rose herself, worship Morrissey lots more than I do: this fabulous, fabulous Morrissey watch. (Seriously y'all, the holidays are upon us and what better gift could you possibly ever find for your favorite Smiths-lover?)
I now send you off to shop away, but first: a few words from the lovely Miss Bona Drag herself.
Who are some of your favorite fashion designers? Hannah Bartie and her line With Hearts In My Eyes. This works well cause she's also my best friend. It's all handmade in limited quantities, very amazing and very wearable. I'm also completely in love with Danielle Petrosa's jewelry line. As far as couture, I enjoy looking at Balenciaga, Christian Dior, Pucci.
Who are your style idols? This always changes and it's usually characters from movies. Right now it's Nancy from I Love You Alice B Toklas.
Who's your dream customer? I would love to see what Miranda July would choose from my shop. I guess I would just love to see her do anything.
What's your favorite look lately? My current favorites are Native American inspired jewelry, anything with fringe, vintage tuxedo dresses and always tons of blush.
Who are your most loved bands/musicians? Morrissey, Cat Power, Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright, Silver Jews, Aimee Mann, AC/DC, Mary J Blige, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, Echo & The Bunnymen, Jawbreaker, Low, Magnetic Fields, and Sinead O'Connor
Name one record you loved when you were a little kid that you still listen to today. I have a lot of those. My favorites are Simple Dreams by Linda Ronstadt and Horses by Patti Smith.
Who's your number-one all-time music crush? Morrissey. The name of my shop is named after a record of his, which means "nice outfit."
What's the best part about running Bona Drag? I love supporting my favorite independent designers and trying to inspire creative people to create.
