Maybe a Trip to the Outback Will Help With This Little Phase I'm Going Through

It must have been about 17 years ago I watched a certain movie with a pair of wowsers (party poopers) who were shocked and stunned at what they saw.
What a shame for them.
This week I watched that same movie three times in a row and now I simply cannot get enough crazy-shiny in my life!


 To whom do I owe the honour of injecting a super-strength shot of fab into my week?


 Miss Felicia Jollygoodfellow,


 Miss Mitzi Del Bra,


aaaaaaand, Miss Bernadette Bassenger.

 1920s beaded cap, 1960s bikini knickers - Etsy
"FREEKY" necklace - custom-made by Phussy
Sequin top, feather bird on my head, bangles, feather earrings and Glomesh bag - thrifted
Sparkly bracelet - lovely Miss V
Frida necklace - supermodel Tamera
Pink sparkly necklace - scrumptious Krista
Green tights and purple fence nets - Sock Dreams
Shoes - market






I cannot compare myself to those wonderous wenches in the frock and costume stakes, so maybe I could be their wig-brusher, glitterfier and sequin-polisher?

Oooooooh and in other fantastical news, Spy Girl has been super busy with her sketch pad this week, I love this art work!  Thank you so much Anne!.

"Check us girls, aren't we faaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous?"

Be brave biatches and knock 'em dead this weekend!

EDIT: YOU CAN WATCH PRISCILLA QUEEN OF THE DESERT HERE.  EEEEEEEEP!!!!!
Mwah, mwah, mwah!
Desiree xoxoxo

  2. I haven't seen Priscilla for ages! I really should watch it again. I totally fell in love with it when I was 17, especially the soundtrack, so many favourites. You look gorgeous - wow you're one bendy wench!! The double tights are gorgeous and the sparkles are wonderful - sequins are a must. I love how you add a touch of the flapper girl to every outfit. Perfect. How cool would we look in Mitzi's headdress? xxxxxx

  3. YOWZA! You are one hot dang momma and so bendy too, I'm very impressed! I used to be able to do the backwards bend but I haven't done it for ages and I'd probably put my back out if I attempted it right now, although I can't say I'm not tempted after seeing your magnificent display of it. Once when I was working at the pub in Covent Garden we were inundated by Pricilla fans on their way to a screening at the Prince Charles cinema in Leicester Square, it was fabulous!

  16. I LOVED that movie!! It's been so long I probably have forgotten the majority of it! The sequin top is amazing-- I am sort of having a sequin moment, too!! Your back bend is very impressive.

  20. Is that film really 17 years old? Doesn't time fly? I need to dig out my DVD of it and watch it. I love it and I think you pay a great homage in all your glittery fabulousness. You're so flexible too. Btw, have you recieved a parcel of joy? Xx

  22. You are a picture of sparkly happiness!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, what a classic. My favourite line is "Come on, cabanossi tits." Or maybe anything Hugo Weaving says in the pub scene when he's selling make up. I think now I'll have to watch this today! I love your sparkly blue top, and that is one impressive back bend, especially in those shoes!! Bring on the crazy shiny!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Not only men get to be drag queens. Some day, I'll do a post all about how drag queens helped me learn to accept my femininity. And, man that back bend is impressive!

  27. How could anyone not love that film, it's been one of our family favourites for years, weird to think it's as old as my daughter actually. Whenever it comes on I always end up watching the whole damn thing again. And you look beautiful as always, I left some sequinned dresses in the charity shop yesterday because I'd already gone over budget, but you make me wish I'd bought them now. Oh dear, I can feel all my good intentions to save money going out the window again! xx

  31. You did WHAT? I cannot get over that bendy backward thing. You make me feel sane, my dear, but then you also make me want to dance on my table in swimsuit bottoms. Or maybe because you make me want to dance on the table in my swimsuit bottoms.

  40. I adore that movie, and have watched it over and over and over - over the decades :) I know this is not cool, but I also listen to ABBA sometimes.

    You are everything wonderful in a style blogger. Magical, surprising, shiny, and beautiful.

  45. I remember seeing that film in the theatre when it came out and loving it. When one of the magazines that targeted the queer community in Toronto ran a contest where you had to dress up like one of the characters in the film, I made my own "Flip Flop" dress, and won a copy of the movie, a poster and the soundtrack! I think I was probably the only woman who entered.

    YOu are a rather flexible minx, aren't you? I used to be able to do a backwards bend like that, but not anymore ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Aw dude! I know exactly what I'm going to be watching tonight. I haven't seen Priscilla in aaages.

    Also, you've inspired me to dig out my "A cock in a frock on a rock" tank top to wear under my work uniform today!

    ReplyDelete

  49. Yes ma'am! I LOVE that movie. When they first started promoting it they used the slogan "Drag is the Drug" (I found this out via the commentary on the "extra frills" edition my husband bought me). I loved this slogan so much I painted it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thewhocaresgirl/4656330276/

    And made it into a tee-shirt! http://www.flickr.com/photos/thewhocaresgirl/6165718273/

  50. Oh wow, this is like watching a bird of paradise table dance. I feel like I've got colour coursing through my veins now. What a wonderful start to the weekend, thank you! xxx

    ReplyDelete
  51. How did I miss this? Thank feck for Helga, eh?
    I saw Priscilla the musical the other day, and felt compelled to remind myself by re-watching the film...again! Not sure what won - Jason Donovan or Guy Pierce, I love them both!
    Pink and green is the best colour combo ever, especially when encasing your delicious arse! xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  52. Isn't it amazing how some yoga poses can be performed better in heels? You go, darling! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. ERMAHGERD... I loooove this! Priscilla is a definite fave (I think I must have watched it at least once a year every year since it came out) - the costumes! The music! The fabulousness!

    And there's you - in all of your exquisite, flexible, fabularse GLORY... table dancing and bending and generally being MARVELLARSE!

    One day Imma come up there and plop on that sofa for a few days and make you dance for me on that table and bring me ice cream. Because I am terrible, Muriel.

    Love yer bits! Sarah xxx
