Blogback Mountain

I'm off to traffic court this morning. Pray for me, and check out these lovely links in the meantime:

So, if I had to list the three things I love most, in order, it would probably go: Fashion, David Bowie, my family. The fabulous new blog Fashion by Bowie has the first two covered.

Catwalk Queen advocates a bright colored coat for Spring. Can't argue there.

Cuffington is kind of pissed that she wasn't invited to this year's Costume Party at the Met. Curse the unreliability of the United States Postal Service, because mine got lost in the mail too! Again...

The Queens over at Kingdom of Style teach us how to sew a tulip hem. I probably won't be attempting this one, since the last time I tried sewing was around age 9, when I made such horrid outfits for my Barbies that they instituted a massive ad campaign with the slogan "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Winona's Designs." But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try.

Feministing has news that Disney is now selling "Princess" wedding dresses for thousands of dollars. The 12-year-old girls interviewed in the article think this is pretty cool. I think it's freakin' terrifying.

One morning I woke up to find that sometime during the night I had sleep-drawn this diagram:

I had even enthusiastically titled it "Ear Wigs! So Clever! Massive Success!" And that's kind of the end of that story. Check out Gala Darling for tips on how to wear an actual wig.

Hey Maya--
Yes, I actually did sleep-draw that earwig diagram. Although the original one was in a notebook and, obviously, I had to recreate this one for you using my mad Paintbrush skillz. I so want to wear a purple wig someday. You're my new idol (and that's not sarcastic).
love,
winona

I want to forward the wig advice to T'Banks.
TYRA. It is one thing to wear a wig. It is another to tape a piece of fuzzy string to your head and say it's "fffffffiiiieeeeeeeerccccceeeeee" or whatever you and your many drag queens would call it.

ear wig=scary.
You are so hilarious! And I can't believe the thing about Disney princess dresses. I'm still shuddering in horror.
your blog rocks.

Thanks dolly! I am totally wig obsessed at the moment. I wore mine again yesterday & felt soooo swank.

So I have to ask--what does one wear to traffic court? Do you have tips? Recommendations? Hope it worked out in your favor...

I too have fashion and David Bowie at the top of my list of things I love. Along with cake...
