Pinkspiration

 I've been reading about Gypsy Rose Lee and her Chinese crested pack of dogs.

 This is Gypsy's sister, actress June Havoc. Nice shoes, lady.

Gyspy Rose Lee

I'm onto this book now, as an alternative to the Female Chauvinist Pigs book. I have to say her son (Eric Lee Perminger) who wrote this, is one whiney little brat. I'm just waiting for her to die and him to be left nothing in the will. What else would explain his mealy mouth?

Wedding Bells

It was sweetheart Kelly Diamond Doyle's wedding last weekend. We all trouped down the Great Ocean road to some secluded little retreat to witness the nuptials and the best brides maid speech ever.
We all got to pick the bird we wanted BBQed for our dinner, William was hungry and wanted two.

Kelly's little boy Arki was THE COOLEST MC ever and a very dedicated bar man for the evening. 
It was a raining quite heavily, which is good luck for the wedded pair but kinda chilly for the party. Luckily I have been stashing an orange 1960s rain coat in my wardrobe for the last 6 years. Finally it came in handy and matches my Dr. Seuss hat too.

Meatball wore a tartan bow-tie and looked dashing and irresistible, especially to a certain Derek..
This is the infamous Miss Ali Hall aka Pam Power (onetime blog special guest writer) and giver of the best and most hilarious wedding speech in history.
J & G no it's not Jilbert and George but it is the cutest pair of outfits.

Female Chauvinist


This is what I'm reading at the moment, a critique of modern feminist culture written by Ariel Levy, and I am very much enjoying it. Well not so much enjoying, its easy to read but I am horrified by some of the stories.
Quote from Hugh Hefner, 1967
"Consider the kind of girl we made popular: the
Playmate of the Month. She is never sophisticated, a girl you cannot really have. She is a young, healthy, simple girl-the girl next door... we are not interested in the difficult woman, the femme fatale who wears elegant underwear, with lace, and she is sad, and somehow mentally filthy. The Playboy girl has no lace , no underwear, she is naked, well washed, with soap and water, and she is happy."RAGE

Le Male

This is my dear friend Tim. He smells like I do, Jean Paul Gaultier, Le Male. Though Tim seems to have taken it one step further. We moved to London together and then when I moved to Melbourne he moved to New York. Tim is a famous hair stylist and I can personally vouch for his amazing powers with his scissors. Sigh, Tim I miss you and your fabulous socialising. xxxx

There's No Business Like Show Business

I watch this 1954 film last night in bed while my man went out for dia de los muertos celebrations. Gosh Hollywood was great in those days. So many girls! So many costumes. The sets. Sigh. I watched this when I was a child and loved it then too. I tried to make showgirl hats out of cardboard, sequins and feathers.

Rose garden

A parcel came from England late last week. A long awaited floral t-shirt from Christoper Kane. I went on a walk into town and wore it with a black jet crucifix on a ribbon around my neck, Dr Martens and a
black mini.
