sequinned

the other night to celebrate my birthday, i went out to a burlesque-meets-broadway drag bar with a few friends for the evening show. it was so amazing, the acts were so good and there were so many numbers - including a little mermaid & rock horror number! i love drag queens so much, i just think they are so amazing. i love the whole over the top, glitzy look (surprise surprise!). in fact, if i had been born a man i would love to be a drag queen! seriously. it's scary how many things in my wardrobe would be perfectly at home on a drag queen's shoulders.
anyway, this is what i wore for the show. as you can see, i kind of adapted my outfit to suit the drag bar aesthetic! hence the sequinned jacket. and the dame edna everage hair (which has already faded loads, waah!) i really love themed outfits! they just make me happy, haha. lame, i know. but then, isn't that what clothing is all about? fashion to me just isn't any fun if you can't have a bit of a laugh & enjoy yourself, instead of being too busy caring what other people think.
jacket - dorothy perkins, top - ebay, skirt/petticoat - charity shop, tights - topshop, shoes - peacocks (ribbon added by me)
this is kind of a blurry shot of the full outfit. i was a bit rushed for time & didn't really have enough patience to set up my tripod, but i wanted to get a picture with my shoes in (for once). also working a little bit of underwear-as-outerwear with this peachy pink petticoat.
and finally a shot of my feminist necklace! this is the biggest seller in my shop, and i am so pleased. i really love making these so it's lovely to know that other people appreciate them and the idea as much as i do.

    1. oh thank you! it's really very simple, i just painted the base red & then had a play about with my nail art pen. it's really quite messy if you look closely, so that's why i didn't do a tutorial haha!
