Life Is a Drag

Last week kinda sucked for me, but I know this week will be better. For one thing, tonight is the finale of "RuPaul's Drag Race"! And the first gothic-punk drag queen on the show, Sharon Needles, has made it to the top three! Huzzah! She has been so much fun to watch, not just for her spooky style but because she has a great sense of humor & greets every challenge with a wicked smile & creepy yet "can do" attitude. I hope she wins tonight, but even if not, her making it this far is a victory for queer weirdos everywhere.

Today, I'm trying to serve up a little Sharon realness in a corporate-friendly fashion, but not too fishy, I hope ;-)

What I'm wearing:
Black & white stripe silk blouse, made by Donna | Black gear-print tie, Cyberoptix on Etsy | Black velveteen skirt, J.Jill | Black tone-on-tone stripe tights, Calvin Klein | Black patent square-toe pumps, unknown brand, possibly thrifted | Silver medallion earrings, random accessory store | Gunmetal cocktail ring, gift from Kendra | Chanel "Vamp" lipstick



What's your favorite TV show this year? Are there any celebs you particularly follow or admire?

  1. Love Drag Race! And I have to admit a fondness for "GCB" - Kristin Chenowith, how can I not? X)
    I'm a big fan of this outfit :)

  2. I like how the earrings match the tie in a way.

  3. GORGEOUS! Seriously, I love the stripes in the blouse and the print on the tie-what a great combo, and one I probably would have been a bit afraid to do because of my paranoia about mixing prints. I miss U.S. tv-there's no streaming here in NZ and the tv services broadcast everything two months later, but before I left, I was really liking the Bones spin-off The Finder.

  6. Thanks! And wasn't it frustrating that last nite's Drag Race finale wasn't actually a finale? Foo.

  8. Mixing prints is something I'm a little wary of -- I don't go too crazy with it, but I find that small touches can be cool. Especially when stripes are involved!

  9. Go Team Sharon! Hopefully next week ;-) I love tie combos too, tho' I have startlingly few shirts that work with them.
