Drinking cocktails in the big desert...

Well kids..I'm off to Australia for tropical cocktails and searing heat...Can't wait to wallow in mud like a pig (just read my Chinese Horoscope).  I hope to find a few victims, errr I mean fashionistas on my travels but in the meantime check out a delightful (bad acting) campy Australian film.  The character Kandy ( I'm sure it's with a 'K') has a ravashingly demure frock on and legs to die for...bitch!  One things for sure she doesn't mind.  Kudos Kandy.

People on the street

People on the street with umbrellas and coats, fur and tassels and hats and things...If it's raining are sunglasses really that necessary?

The Real Soap

Here let me throw this at you.   The worst Soap you will ever see...bad jokes, bad laugh tracks, bad clothes, bad script, bad Italian pronounciation...best of all bad acting!  Check out the cast, you'll remember a few faces.  Try to watch until the 'faux' Italian scenes...truly retarded but the best scene.  Enjoy if you dare.

Amanda Lepore

She does just about everything that Amanda Lepore...What a diverse life!


Skull head clutch

Skull head clutch, fur and leather what more can a rock n' roll girl ask for?  Party hard!

Men's Oxfords

Men's oxfords with rolled jeans. Vintage trend





1955 - The Paris Catwalk

My, my, my how times have changed...When people actually wore fabric!  In fact, dresses at times were called gowns.  Why are we so casual these days? How rather dull of us!  Enjoy and remember to have a serviette on standby in case you drool over your keyboard.

Pink Fur Trim Booties

Boots with a pink fur trim...purrrrrrrrr!   I want to lick these booties...Santa's (Father Christmas', Babbo Natale, good old St. Nick's etc etc) elves would wear these if they lived in Milan or Russia.  My guess is they need the heel for the height.  Nowadays the elves aren't so preoccupied with red and green, i mean that's soooo 1983.  Today's fashion conscious elves need a bit more glamour in their life.  Working all year round in freezing conditions isn't an ideal way to spend one's life especially that of a dollar a month factory (assumed!).

Geometric Muchacha

To be a Muchacha you need ChaCha heels.  The Heel you are about to see is a geometric muchacha one with matching clutch.  Sparkly and shiny my favourite type.  One can imagine a sexy mexicana babe or a hot latina Queen in tight shiny skinny high waisted cigarette pants, the type that needs to be stitched onto you.  Big dark Farrah Fawcett hair from the 70s and an off the shoulder boulder holder (extra tight) top to match (and to hold a pair in place).  Red lips and chacha dancing needed to truly pull off the look.  It's a sort of space age 'Grease' look going on.  I recommend dancing in your bedroom to the song attached DOWN BELOWWWWWWWWW.

VALENTINO! Shoes! Part Two





Hello my pretties...

Frankie Morello...Wise Words.

If Mary Tyler Moore can make it own her own as she gayly throws up her berret and if these two can...Well then, there are no worries.  Miss Moore for president! and the Frankie Morello boys for prime minster!

VALENTINO! Part One

Drool worthy, sexy, elegant, extreme hotness.  Eat hearty!   
Valentino your excellence towards style is a dripping Porchetta, succulent and tender, fit for the freshest Panini, and then downed with the finest Frascati.  You are the Matriciana of fashion dishes...You just can't leave Rome without eating the above mentioned just like you can't say you love fashion without respecting the elegance and beauty of Valentino design.

Maybe it's the name but there was even a beauty with Rudolph Valentino, slick, sauve, handsome a real elegance about him and even a tasty extragance...Watch him as he graces the dance floor with a saucy Tango...Racy for 1921.

BOWS...More Bows.  Furla pumps.

It's better than Bob Hope's version.

Mega Kitsch Boots

Mega Kitsch is a type of style, it's so bad it's good often finds its in way into my fashion vocabulary (and wardrobe).  Bad taste is a fashion trend and depending on who you are, where you come from and what you do for a living it might just be your cup of tea.  It's not that I oppose, it's just that it makes me giggle with delight...Would I wear such Fuck me boots?  NO! HELL NO...Well, maybe if I was going to a dress up party, dressed up as a 90s sitcom ('The Nanny').   Meanwhile look at this blog...Rather fun.






hmmm Yellowy

Yellowy and mustard like.  Djon, hibachi and tumeric.  Just don't mix them together and eat it you are liable to vomit.  Eeewwwww that's nasty!

Blue pumps

Patent, suede and snake in various shades and tones. I see a trend forming...OoooOOOoooooOOOoo. 

No it's not Elvis Presley singing blue suede shoes but instead some 60s garage psych punk even if I wouldn't be jumping around in these heels and stomping to the music.

Hold my snake

'Hold my snake' said the priest to the actress...
I was going to add a Whitesnake clip but I just couldn't let myself do it...It was too painful for me.

A man, A suit and a scarf

A man, a suit and a scarf.  Not just any scarf but a nice one, flowing in the breeze like a Lucy Maud Montgomery book (coughing...Anne of Green Gables).  Laugh carelessly like a Juila Roberts character (thankyou Tina Fey) and skip and jump like a lumberjack and press wild flowers (Oh Monty, you).  Everyone needs something pretty in the wardrobe.  Buttered scones for tea? Anyone?

A rich tapestry

Fur on the cuffs and lapels, how luxurious, how vintage, how expensive?  Imagine yourself rolling up in a curtain, a rich tapestry or Mittens, your lovable cat to keep warm...Not such a bad idea, just watch out for carpet burn and clawing.

Film Noir For Winter

Film Noir for a winter.  Watch them all and enjoy the narrative and the costumes.

My favourite

One from the vault, a nicely dressed man, the suit, polished shoes, fur lapels, cravat and a big smile. It made my day when I asked if I could take a photo.  He beamed with delight, and so did I!

Something for the boys - Ethel Merman

Dear god,
I love this.  It's a dream come true to discover that Ethel Merman had a disco record.  You really do have a sense of humour.  I suppose a broads gotta make a livin' any which way she can.  It may not be her regular show tune classics but definitely a record to have in the old collection for any true camp lover.  May the cheeseyballsyness be with you always and forever. 
Amen

Older than your time

I'm just saying...You're as old as you feel.  But your head is older than your feet.  Think about it.




Why the long face?

Black boots

Black boots for super strong women, don't step on them otherwise you just might get stiletto stepped on back or even boot slapped!  Boots symbolize for a gal, one who is grounded, reliable, fearless and powerful.  'These boots were made for walking' just ain't a classic Nancy Sinatra tune.  It's a tune for a gal on the go, a gal with a mission and when she earns the right she will walk all over you...but only if you deserve it!

Bordello of heels

Heights of heels and platforms go up and down much like an economy of current times.  It can sparkle and shine, glitter and glow and be super sexy.  Alas walking becomes an artform a skill, something to be practiced and one just can't walk normally on uneven roads, it becomes a head down cautious walk.  Hard to be mysterious when you are clutching to stable friends in sensibile shoes.  

Happy to report that these were all dudes wearing these beauties.

Going for a casual stroll.
