And Then I Touched Bianca del Rio

I'm not going to bury the lead on this one.  I touched Bianca del Rio on Friday night.  There's photographic proof somewhere, and I'll post it as soon as I get it.  If you're not familiar with Bianca del Rio, you don't really know me at all, do you? she's the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6.  Do yourself a favor and watch this show.  It's the best thing on TV.  Seriously.  Then go to Bianca's site and buy something.  Seriously.

I attended the South Carolina Pride President's Ball featuring Bianca del Rio with two of my best friends. At the end of the night Kristin, Holly, and I had our pic taken with.Bianca. Her comment: "What do we have here, the cast of Downton Abbey?" Need that pic.
Looking good, feeling gorgeous.


I'll now subject you to even more outfit pics than usual because I look fantastic.  One day I'll be old and shriveled, so let me be young(ish) and hot(ish) now.  Thanks to my friend Natalie for suggesting that I wear this necklace as a headband.
 

Now serving legendary goddess realness.  The dress code was your best black and white.  I decided black would be easy, so I went with white.
 

Dress, Ross; earrings, Walmart; headband (really a necklace), ebay; shoes, Target.
My friend told me how photogenic I am.
I'll give you photogenic.
Unfortunately I got something on the dress over the course of the night.  Say a prayer to Saint Oxiclean.

 

Can I tell you how much I love Bianca del Rio.  That clown is my spirit animal.  She has a combination of stone-cold, caustic bitch and self-deprecating, vulnerable bitch that speaks to me.
Wow, wow, wow.  Veronica la Blank is an amazing
performer.  Her lip sync to Beyonce's "If I Were
a Boy" brought down the house.
Nicole Roberts is so very talented- an amazing performer (as seen
at Augusta Pride) she made the sequined, zebra-print dress she's wearing.  I need that dress.

This banner belongs to me now.  Seriously.  I own it.
This guy is wearing my favorite color.
Here we are with Miss Patti O'Furniture.  I wish I had photographed all her
great looks.
End of the night.  It's 2:00 am and
I'm still rocking.  
Check back for my photographic proof of the touching.  First time I've said that (on this blog).  I'll also be posting a video of part of Bianca's show on YouTube.

Identity Swap

This outfit doesn't look like me to me.  It looks like my friend Kristin.  Maybe it's the fact that the shirt used to be hers.  Maybe it's the fact that the brooch is an alligator and she's a big fan of gators.  Maybe it's the fact that I don't wear a lot of pants.  Whatever the reason, I was channeling my inner Kristin.
 

Sweater, thrifted; shirt, swapped; pants, Walmart; earrings, Cozumel; brooch, ebay; wedges, 6pm.com; flats, Rack Room Shoes.
 

You know me; any time I wear heels I have shoes of shame on standby.  These gladiator wedges were comfortable enough I didn't need the flats.

Summer Bronze

I've spent quite a  bit of time outside the past few weekends, and it shows.  I didn't realize quite how tan I'd become until I downloaded these photos.
 

Dress, Walmart; belt, Body Central; shoes, Younkers; earrings, gifted (thanks, Kate!); necklace, handmade by me.
 
The color palette makes my skin look even more bronze, not that I'll complain.
 

Wear your sunscreen!  (I did; that's why I'm tan not pink.)

Easy Bee-zy

This outfit is great because it's easy to wear but still looks like I care.  I paired a sunflower print top with a sunflower print sundress and added bee-themed jewelry.
 

Shirt, gifted (thanks, Mom!); dress, thrifted; necklace, bracelet, and earrings, handmade by me; shoes, Rack Room Shoes; glasses, Firmoo.com.
