This is what I wore to John Waters’ “This Filthy World Goes Hollywood” show the other night! Firstly, I just have to say John Waters is a goddamn machine. He is NONSTOP hilarity with his stories! I could throw on a snuggie and listen to him talk for hours! I don’t think I saw him even take a sip of water to clear his throat. How the?! Mr. Waters, seriously let’s just knock back a few dranks and talk shit about everything in the world because this is RIDICULOUS! Secondly, let’s talk about this dress for a minute. Yes, I said Built By Wendy for Target in my outfit notes above. Um…WHAT?! I know. WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN? This dress is not part of some Built By Wendy for Target collection nor was it available in stores. It was featured in Target’s Red Hot shop a few days before Valentine’s day which means nobody would have been able to even get it in time for Valentine’s. I snatched it up on a day when it was 20% off and free shipping. It was red with little orange hearts, I HAD TO! But where were the press releases? Why didn’t anyone know about this? WHY WERE YOU HIDING THIS FROM US. Another strange thing is there were no price tags on the dress, just a sewn tag that says Built By Wendy. WHAT IN TARNASHIA IS GOING ON YOU GUYS.

Anytime I can wear my lips hat is a good time indeed. The show was at UCLA so I can’t expect a parade of fashion, just Uggs and sweats I GUESS. Why are people so boring? Couldn’t someone have dressed up like Divine or made a hat that looked like a literal piece of shit as an ode to Pink Flamingos? I guess it’s going to have to be me next time sporting that fake dook. OMG! With little flies on wires buzzing around it! Imagine! Back to my anger, seriously why don’t people dress up? We are all going to die at some point so you might as well wear a crazy hat, you assholes.

I got these vintage Japanese opera glasses for Emi and I since we were up in the balcony and besides being cute, they were actually very useful! I was able to spot host Matthew Gray Gubler’s moustache homage to JW from up above! I also fell in love that night with Elvis Perkins, who was the opening musical act. He sounds like Jeff Mangum and is Anthony Perkins’ (yes from Psycho) son. I am ashamed I never knew about him before, but even though I try to know everything that is going on  at all times, some days I listen to too much 90′s Mariah and miss out on gems such as this mang. Ple dew:

I sooo agree on the hat advice. I need to wear mine more. Kate Middleton is rocking the classy fascinators. I feel like the Fergie to her Diana.

That dress looks awesome on you too, btw.

Elvis Perkins was literally the most polite person that I had ever served a taco to.

What the what? Builty by Wendy for Targe!!?!! I love BBW! I have so much from her 2003/2004 collection thanks to Thurston Moore and his BBW guitar strap. You look great!

Anyhoo, I wish I could dress up like I used to. I learned the hard way last September that you cannot wear a dress when you have a breastfeeding hippie baby. We were at my granny’s funeral and in order to feed her, I had to hike my dress up above my boobs. My aunt had to stand guard at one of the doors at the funeral parlor to keep our milk session private. So awkward!

John Waters is so awesome. We use the same lining pencil. I love his thoughts on The Wire. I think my boyfriend should be him for Halloween.

Well done! You’re so wise. I saw his Christmas thing a couple years ago..I wanted him to talk about cha cha heels so badly! He probably doesn’t drink water EVER. My bff just sent me Role Models, amazing. One of my prized possessions is the Interview with Divine on the cover…next time I’m in town let’s find a dj who will play this for us
AND Elvis Perkins!?! Dreamy!

your hat was the first thing I spotted when I scanned the crowd for you outside! I knew to look for color, and there, in a sea of uggs and ucla hoodies, were two red lips perched atop your noggin.

8 Eli { 02.25.11 at 7:46 pm }

omg your outfit just gave me a lady boner! so hot! Not to mention the John Waters thing, he was in Vegas a while back and some friends went and no one told me he was in my backyard when I lived there. Still bummed about that, but maybe he’ll come to san fran soon

9 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:14 pm }

Thank you Corrine!!

10 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:15 pm }

Well it’s true! I just want everyone to have some laffs on their cabezas once in a while.

11 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:18 pm }

Thank you! I was worried because Built By Wendy is usually made for slender ladies but this one was so simple it worked. And yes! More hats on Poochie!

12 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:19 pm }

YAY!!! He seems like he would be pleasant. He IS co-signed by Daddy Waters after all.

13 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:20 pm }

I remember you loved Built By Wendy actually! Holy shit at that breastfeeding story. Hahaha. Well there IS still skirts and tops, no? You always had the best style Crissy!

14 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:24 pm }

“He probably doesn’t drink water EVER.” HAHAHA!! fuck that video is AMAZING!!

15 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:26 pm }

HAHAHAHA! You know…my ultimate outrageous outfit WILL have to be uggs and a ucla hoodie because it will be so unexpected!!

16 marie { 02.25.11 at 8:27 pm }

I almost missed him here! He’s so sneaky because there isn’t a proper website with constant news and events. There is one but it’s not an official one so you have to be totally savvy and alert at all times to find out when he’s around!

17 TheShoeGirl { 02.26.11 at 12:36 pm }

I am so so jealous. I wish I coulda gone… I WOULD HAVE DRESSED UP! God damnit. You know i love an excuse to dress up.

18 Fiona { 02.26.11 at 4:58 pm }

UGH orange and red, seeing those two colours together is like when two beloved celebrities start to smooch and I clutch my heart in happiness at their union.

19 Miss Eliza Wharton { 02.27.11 at 12:52 am }

Go on Marie!
keep on kickin’ ass in fashionboreland!
Waters is due to fall for you dressed like that. love the hat!!

20 Karlito { 03.02.11 at 2:08 pm }

Ay, you look so c00te! Your lips hat made me go, AHH *melts!* Seriously love it. I must agree with you, life’s just too short to wear boring clothes. PPL, GET WID IT

21 Mallory { 03.05.11 at 7:29 am }

Agreed, agreed, about hats! The hat you’re wearing is amazing, but yes, a shit hat!

I was watching Amazing Race the other day, and the contestants were in Australia and had to do a challenge where they dressed in kangaroo costumes. One of them said “I’ve never looked so ridiculous in my life.” I found myself saying to my boyfriend what a sad life she must have then. I don’t want to wait for reality tv to make me look ridiculous! I can make my own fun!

22 Autumn Luciano { 03.08.11 at 8:10 pm }

You look AMAZING. And its funny I was just confessing my love of john waters to the facebook world the other night. (o:

23 ami { 06.24.11 at 4:07 am }

I do believe I’m in love with you, wonderful wohman!
