Rupert's winter coat

 Just incase you missed this on Facebook, I made this coat for Rupert the other afternoon. He does have some crazy knit jumpers so I wanted him to have something more sophisticated, like this pure wool checked coat with a collar. He he he

Rupert the winter bear

I can't help making Rupert clothes. I know I said I wouldn't dress my dog up like an idiot but he does get cold, and he does love his clothes. Unless they have sleeves, then he walks like his legs are in plaster casts. Jo 'the star' Duck took this photo. Does he like to pose?

PAGEANT

Some very beautiful friends of mine, Kate and Amanda have launched their men's wear label, Pageant. I think the pictures say it all. Fucking sexy boys gotta get their limbs in these. Massive respect. It's MAN week here at Wamp-Nation. Big up boys!

Gosh this eyebrow is my kind of eyebrow. *Sigh*
I just hope that your neighbourhood dealer is lurking around in this outfit by next summer.

Trough Faggots

 I'd just like to give a shout out to Nik Dimopoulos for single handedly changing the way Melburnians see men.  It's all just got so much more hairy/sexy, just like your man should be. Through the fliers and  posters for John and Trough Faggot Parties these images get up all over town. 
Thank you Nik. 
Massive respect.

Books to read

I am just rearranging the bookshelf, due to excessive weight it had collapsed. I thought I might share some of my old favorites, in case anyone is looking for a suggestion to read on cold autumn nights.
Boy George, Take It Like A Man, self explanatory really. 
 I adore Evelyn Waugh, maybe I'll re-read this now...
 Roddy Doyle wrote the Commitments, his books are brilliantly funny, I couldn't recommend them more.
 I think I read this whilst performing my job as a door b*#ch at Alia. Jacqueline Susann wrote this whole book all about her poodle Josephine. I loved it so much, it may be what started me on my quest for a poodle of my own.
Tom Robbins also wrote Skinny Legs And All, which is my favorite novel of his. It is, amongst other things, about a can o' beans, a dirty sock, spoon, painted stick and a conch shell travelling across America. I don't have a copy of that one so this stands as a second in line. 

Hanging Rock

You know I love a trip to Hanging Rock. Rupert came too and was so well behaved, he got all covered in grass and I thought he rather resembled a lamington.
Little French Fanny was over for a visit, et Maman.

I wore my beloved Christopher Kane jumper which got a bit hot by the time we'd trekked all the way to the top. I always insist we get to the top before were allowed to eat our picnic. He he he

Preston Zly


Jo Duck is shooting my Edgeley look-book tonight which is extremely exciting. Preston Zly have, very kindly, lent me some seriously sharp shoes. Preston Zly are a bit of a  cult in Melbourne, they design and hand craft all their shoes. There is even an inspiring story behind each design. 
I am completely in love with the Selina wedge, (above) and have started a fund to buy some for myself.   
The Sojourner, (above) is named after Sojourner Truth, an African-American abolitionist and women's rights activist they should reflect the uniform element of the collection perfectly.

Preston Zly shoes can also be purchased at The Signet Bureau, 165 Gertrude St. Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia. Click HERE for more information

Poodle mania


 A couple of people sent me the Di$count girl's poodle post, (see HERE) which almost made me regret getting a black poodle, who can never be dyed pink. I drew Rupert the other night. He doesn't have a weirdo haircut ... yet. I don't really want a weird looking dog though, I would like a pastel one. The poodles cut to look like camels and stuff kinda annoy me. I may get Rupert's hair cut into pom poms for next Gay Carnival day.
Quite beside the point, I am is desperate need of more poodle paraphernalia.
