New leggings - look better than they function




I got a few pairs of new leggings online from Hot Topic - I love the look of these, but they're not the best fit or material. They like to scoot down so that you're constantly hiking them up...
 
Another pair I got is AWFUL - I wore them for the day and they got baggy knees!  : ( That's the worst thing that your leggings or tights can do.
 
My old camera crapped out with the photos from that day (baggy knee leggings) so I don't have an outfit to show you. Hopefully we'll find a new camera soon! The iphone has it's limitations (indoor and low light photos are awful.) If anyone has a digital point-and-shoot they'd recommend let me know!

OMG - this should be her JOB!

So my awesome derby / writer sis just posted a new fiverr gig - writing scathingly funny evil quiz's - kind of like a quiz  you'd find in seventeen magazine - but FUNNY AS HELL and a bit evil.

choose from the following:

Are you friends with a ROTTEN WHORE?

Are you dating a ROTTEN CHEATING ASSHOLE?

Is your friend a PSYCHO ASSHOLE?

Is your date a PSYCHO?

Is your job turning you into a MINDLESS ROBOT?

She is even offering the option of her mailing a copy of the quiz to you or the person of your choice - you could anonymously mail one to your rotten whore of a friend who keeps ditching you for any man that comes her way...not that she'd ever get the hint.

Answer these burning questions - or tell her what your topic of choice is and get a CUSTOM 10 question quiz! : )

This is a perfect way to help support her derby endeavors!  :  ) (I let her borrow my makeup and clothes - so I'm already a gold star supporter!)

Meanwhile my camera has been broken, and every time we go to buy a new one we read reviews and get discouraged. New pictures soon though - I PROMISE!

Sis Gig - Fun Mail...

My sister is raising money for a Roller Derby tournament  (she's the one in blue and black)-
her team will travel to L.A. to battle teams from around the country in the BATTLE ON THE BANK  !!

Just so you know - seeing a team play on the banked track is 100xs cooler than any of the teams playing on a flat track.





Since she's not a loser - she's not just begging for money - she is offering her creative skills to earn some extra cash for the trip! Here's her fiverr account featuring two fun options -
ANGRY TOPAZ FIVERR

You can pay her $5 to write out and mail a Star Wars postcard to a friend (or yourself) - written FROM a Star Wars character of your choice! What a nice surprise for your favorite Star Wars fan - snail mail is the coolest gift EVER! : )

Or for a mere $5 she'll write you a fun funny original short story about whatever you fancy!
I love her stories - she's very creative and hilarious, and I'm not just saying that b/c she's my sis!

Some stories she's written for my entertainment in the past have featured cast members of RuPauls Drag Race paired up with Real House Ho's to compete in Real Drag Wives Extravaganza!  Also we have a running story about a show called Outcasted Island where we strand our "favorite" people...together! That one is all inside jokes - so no one would enjoy it but me...

You could ask her to write a crazy version of how you met your husband, or somehow combine vampires and unicorns into one short story (that's what she did for a sample - it's a funny one!).




Anyway it's an entertaining way to spend $5 and send a derby girl to a tournament! THANKS!

optical hobbit

Yes - I changed my hair! But I didn't get good photos of it yet - sorry.
 
I got this great sweater at JCP on clearance for $6 the other day and I love how it looks with this long sleeved striped top underneath! They seem destined to be together - don't they?
 




One night in Filthadelphia we passed this ad at a bus stop and I snapped a photo of my cute hobbit enthusiast! We really enjoyed the movie when we saw it in Dec - and we are eagerly awaiting the next 2 in the trilogy! hurry hurry!

First nice day! Hooping and sunglasses~


It was really nice out - FINALLY - so we headed to a flea market, then the park so I could hoop for the first time this year.

I got this pair of sunglasses at a flea market last year - our mission today was to find a great new pair for Industrial Ken. Heart shaped? Pink? A bow?






It was a bit windy for hooping, but it felt good to be at it again!


We got him this pair of sunglasses - I really like them!

3 Vintage Gowns

This months theme is VINTAGE - thanks to Miss Kitty of Sophisticate Noir I had a great reason to dig through my closet and feature some of my favorite vintage dresses!

I had some luck some years ago at a local thrift shop - someone my size loved full length gowns!
I'd guess these three dresses are from the 1960's - maybe the 50's.


The gown I'm wearing is fully beaded - a bit heavy!


This gown begs to be worn with a tiara! Who am I to deny it?


And now for my best accessory -
