MadWalk 2012

MadWalk 2012 took place last Wednesday and this time I was there.

As you probably know, the event is a fusion of a music concert and a catwalk show, so the place was packed with teens trying to get a glimpse of their favourite artist as well as some fashion lovers hopelessly trying to actually see the clothes. As that was kinda impossible due to huge place and our seats being of the nosebleed kind, the pics I'll be posting here will be more about depicting the atmosphere and less about the couture.

Enjoy!

Alexander, I don't know if you can read us, but Cypriot designer Efi Papaioannou and Greek bouzoukia singer Natasa Theodoridou paid homage to your chess catwalk thingy.

Those of you who need to see more, fret not. The show will be edited and aired on TV anytime soon.

Bad Girls


The Noir City film festival just seems to get better and better every year. There's a Noir City tradition of having the Thursday night be "Bad Girls" night, so of course that was the show we decided to get dressed up for. This year's Thursday night lineup featured our bad girl icon, Beverly Michaels (star of one of our Noir City all-time favorites, Wicked Woman), in Pickup. Laura, Fawn and I even made up a drinking game to accompany the double feature, the rules of which were:
  • Woman applies lipstick: one drink
  • Woman puts a hand on her hip: one drink
  • Someone lights up a cigarette: one drink
  • A slap followed by a kiss: two drinks
It was the cigarette scenes that really did us in. I frankly wonder how people found time for anything else besides smoking in the 40's and 50's. 

Laura wore a dress she got from Modcloth, which just happened to look like it was made specifically to go with her adorable pair of pink and brown John Fluevog shoes. She topped it off with a vintage mink stole she found at an estate sale. Fawn went for a classic secretary look complete with pencil skirt and cardigan, pairing it with a vintage hat that I retrimmed myself. I wore my vintage 50's dress and a vintage fur-trimmed hat I found at Goodwill.

As for being bad girls, we did get a little tipsy, but we weren't even in the same league as Beverly Michaels. We've really got to work on that next year.
