Sunday, I invited friends and family to a boozy, dance-y very not elegant, not vintage brunch at Pranna. There was a lot of table dancing. Wednesday, I had a nice lunch with my dad and then tea with a good friend. I put on a Kay Windsor dress from the late 50s, a favorite of mine. I needed plenty of wool because it was so cold that day.
Nothing says I'm old and wiser than schoolmarm chic, amirite? Pardon the weird angle and look on my face; taking your own photos is hard!
I made it a little less demure with some backseam tights and really high mary janes by Call It Spring. I haven't made up my mind on "vegan leather" but I think these are very cute and they don't look so cheap.
I then did a complete change for drag bingo at Lips. Yes, that's exactly right--drag queens calling bingo and also performing. It was amazing. I wore a wool 60s dress with fishnets and these sky-high blue heels from Aldo I love. Unfortunately, I didn't get a great picture of the dress and its sweet little turtleneck, but I did get a photo of myself in a birthday crown onstage with Miss Ginger Snapt. Everyone celebrating a birthday, engagement or anniversary gets a printed photo card of themselves onstage. They wrote, "Happy birthday, hoochie! Love, the Lips Divas." I love it.
|Her costume was magical. It was like Dolly Parton ate a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader|
If nothing else, my legs look fabulous.
So I missed a week of Monday Man Candy, I missed a week of listings, but I'd like to think I had a fairly good reason. And now I'm back!
