The Fabulous Stains


What’s more badass than a movie featuring a young Diane Lane fronting an all-girl punk band? Not much…besides the makeup and clothes the girls wear in the film. Once you are done with the sequin masks and jeweled lips, why not keep surrendering to the dramatic makeup cravings and go for a ‘lil 80′s rock n’ roll glamour?

Those close to me are *privileged* to know AND EXPERIENCE how much I love to wear tights and panties just to lounge around…if only we could walk around in public however we gawtdamn please. Los Gagaz does it and everyone gets their own panties twisted! Maybe she’s just taking Stains-style to the next lev.


They even worked it right and wore panties OVER tights (helps keep them up of course)



So what say you? Halloween costume? or maybe even a flash mob type of situation?!?!? Let me know if you want to organize a synchronized dance and we can all be Youtube stars. You know I’m always down.

Wow, I’m feeling weirdly compelled to do this. It seems on a level with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, eh?

NYLON had something about the Stains in it last year, which compelled me to rent the movie. Which, has a fabulous commentary by the (now) Diane Lane! I also think it’s just a good look at fads in general- xo.

panties over tights is SUCH a good trick.

FYI, young Diane Lane = the lyrics to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club.”

[...] The Fabulous Stains, as highlighted by Agent Lover (one of my new favorite¬† blogs), looks like the most incredible 80s movie ever, and I can’t believe I haven’t seen it yet! [...]
