Flaps fashions: Day 5
Check out my updated multi-media denim package…
I must thank the awesome, talented, witty, charming and bolshie Vanessa Wagner for hosting her Unisex: Amateur Strip Night at the Oxford Hotel. Unfortunately last night was the final, which is very sad as it is a very funny adults only night, mid week too, meaning Oxford Street is a decent place to visit.
There’s a slight nudity warning on this video, nothing you wouldn’t see down at the beach, but a bit of boob action nonetheless. Extra massive thanks to Tx for his most excellent camera work too. So that’s my parental warning, here’s the vid!
The amazing suit in which I begin the ‘act’ comes from the Fashion House of Flaps. It is a spectacular example of high 1980s fashion: shoulder pads, pleated pants, narrow ankle, double breasted with a lace overprint to boot…
It’s also got an incredible lable…
I must point out the shoes too. They are denim, posted down by a very special lady in Brisbane…
The only let down in the outfit, at this early stage, is my hair. I couldn’t decide which hideous old lady wig to wear so I wore none.
And I don’t think a revolting old ratted wig would have set off this particular item on which I spent days and days ‘studding’…
nterim report… Check back later for a denim multi-media event
I have been grappling, wrestling, shouting at the dog to stop scratching (even though she is deaf and can’t hear a thing), yelling at my computer and generally raging against the (macbook) machine.
Why? I’ll tell you why! God-damn video!
As you all know (if you read this blog regularly) last night I stepped out of denim… literally. I stripped. I flashed. I wobbled. I grimaced and generally horrified a few people including myself once I viewed the video.
So this morning in an effort to move this blog into the realm of multi-media I thought I’ll just quickly edit that video and pop it up.
Harumph! Scream! Rage! Frustration!
But at last I succeeded.
Anyway, here’s what I’m wearing today…
Top: That terrific Wrangler jacket I love so much. Thanks Flaps for letting me stink it up
Bottom: Levi’s flares with red stitching and nice crotch repairs
Accessory: Denim shoulder bag. It wasn’t in Flaps brief for this outfit, but I needed an accessory, and I needed a bag because I THOUGHT I’d be leaving the house early. Instead I have been sitting on the computer editing video for HOURS!
