New Theme!



Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I've been dark for days, and now you know why. Ryan has been working feverishly to produce the new theme!! How amazing?!

We, we, we so excited. 


All Rebecca Black jokes aside, I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I gave Ryan two requests for the theme and he even accommodated the ones I didn't say. You may have your own Technical Director, but mine is also a clairvoyant.

I'm so dying, I'm six feet under deceased. But I still can't stop smiling about the way the site looks!


Yay Ryan!!! Without you, I'd still be trapped in the world of Wordpress.

Bloody Mary


I'm about to pull an 11 hour shift at work, so I don't have time to blog today. I'm going to share with you what is getting me through said 11hr shift though.

This:


Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries got engaged! I'm thoroughly excited. But not as excited as the E! network is. Aside from the fact that they've begun planning out 16.5 new Kardashian spin-offs, they realized the gays love Kris Humphries just as much as Kim. Seacrest finally has someone to talk sports with, that doesn't look like an alien Bruce Jenner.

"Can I have my allowance now papa?"
Congratulations!

So deal with that.

Surrounded by GaGa (in Jersey?)


Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I was going through a slight depression this weekend, as the stern realization of CFW's passing hit me right on my Bang by Marc Jacobs scented face. Then, there was a Gaga at the end of the tunnel.

I mean, what better way is there to reinvigorate my insatiable desire for fabulosity than listening to Lady Gaga's deliciously gay Born This Way album? The album was released at midnight, and I clicky clickied, and downloaded. Then stayed up wearing my favorite bow tie and sunglasses jamming to each song. I'm back and better than ever people.

Download that shit right here: [The Best Internet Portal Ever Created]

There are more events on the horizon across the Cincinati area for Ryan and I, but we've got some serious pop culture to catch up on.

Did you know that the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered last week?!
Sans this crazy hoe:
Yes Mel Gibson, we're wondering where the crazy is going to come from without Dannielle Staub too!

Don't you fret Mel, Theresa's brother and his wife are new additions to the cast, and they're 2008 Britney Spears nuts. 


No, you shouldn't be scared. Unless you live in Jersey. But if you live in Jersey, you should probably move anyways.

Joe and Melissa Gorga are crazy with a capital WTF.


If you missed the brawl at their son's Christening, you should be ashamed of yourself.

But if you did, this is appropriate:

Make sure you watch tonight, "you sons of bitches!"

That's a quote from the video. I don't care if you had lesbian moms, but I applaud him for updating the insult so it is more inclusive.

Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: The Attendees


 I've shown you so many designers, now I want to show you all who attended Cincinnati Fashion Week's Finale show.


It was a family affair! Me, and my Aunt ( who worked with Lindsay Lusignolo) looking adorable.

One of the newscaster's for Fox, Sara Celi (my new friend) and her friend were sitting right behind us.
I see sequins and a gold chain necklace in the same picture! I already miss CFW.

All of Lindsay's former coworkers, they were so excited!

Sarah Celi with Amy Scalia, Editor-In-Chief of Cincy Chic. Clearly, I was in good company in the press section of the venue.

Another adorable picture of me and my bestie (who just moved to ATL) Teren Posey

Melissa Scalia was the host for the evening, and she happens to be wearing a gorgeous gown provided by the  beautiful lady she is taking a photograph with! Ashley Burnside, owner of Fetish Boutique.

Melissa, and the man behind the magic, Nathan Hurst. I hope he is enjoying some much deserved time off! This week was so extravagant!

Me and one of my new favorite people, Vivian Moore. Vice President of Mitchell's Salon and Day Spa. 
Words can not describe the level her vision, and her talent with hair took Saturday Night's show to. 

Finally, the ever glowing Adhrucia Apana wearing a creation by Amy Kirchen. How am I supposed to resist using a look with a plunging neckline, sequins, AND shoulder pads as my closer? It can't be done. 

Sorry this post wasn't sassy! I had so much fun this week, I couldn't be sarcastic towards the people who made it that way (again)!

Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: Lindsey Lusignolo


Zach is in black, Ryan is in blue.
 What a perfect opener.Its volume makes it such a statement piece, yet it is still totally figure flattering because the sheer tulle allows you to see the fitted underdress. Clothes like this that are fashionably showy, a little avant garde and yet completely practical are what every woman needs to stuff her closet with.
If Black Swan had ended with Natalie Portman mixing her crazy dual personality issues into one lesbian-kick ass-dancer-swan, this is what she would wear. And isn't that the perfect criteria for you to want this for an evening out?
 Semi fitted bodice, charmeuse fabric. You get a little hit of sparkle from the front...
The lights go down as the Drag Show is starting...

 ...and then BAM. She knocks you out with a metallic applique.The back of this dress is the most spectacular I have ever seen.
...and then BAM. She bursts into the song Toxic by Britney Spears, sending you into the highest heavens of gay club euphoria.

CFW After Party @ The Weston Art Gallery


Ryan and I decided to give you dual commentary for this post. It worked out well. 
It's kind of like reading a dialogue, like the ones going on inside Courtney Love's head. 

Zach is in blue. Ryan is in black.
 Bathing in maribou feathers? Glamorous. I told her if I saw her vagina I would sue. She assured me she had panties on. I'll never stop being afraid of the vag├Čn. 
 6 Vodka Cranberries + 18 Donuts = Drew is still as drunk as he was before the 18 donuts. 

She was wearing lace leggings with her ass hanging out, and silver stripper boots Christian Louboutin's AND she invited me to her closet to see the rest of her collection. Don't get any ideas lady, I've been out of the closet for a long time, and I DON'T plan on going back to Narnia any time soon. 

Cincinnati Fashion Week: Cala Ossidiana


Cala Ossidiana is the designer I don't have much to say about. The swimwear was sexy and gorgeous, but swimwear is not my area of expertise. There isn't much clothing involved, and clothing is my crack. I do however, know that the colors of each swimsuit matched the models skin perfectly.

Warning: These pictures will make you put down your cookie and watch Gossip Girl on the treadmill.
Their bodies are sick.



Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: Avni Trivedi


I thought about saying all of this myself, and then thought: Well damn, the folks at CFW did a pretty amazing job, so why not let them do the talking?

"Avni focuses on offering fashion collections that are environmentally responsible and support the centuries-old artisan cottage fabric-making industry in India. All Avni designs are crafted from fabrics that are commissioned exclusively by Avni. These fabrics are hand-made, utilizing customs that are hundreds of years old and uphold the tradition and history of Indias celebrated artisans. By requisitioning these fabrics, Avni not only helps maintain economic stability for artists, but also helps keep these ancient arts alive. All fabrics are 100% hand-dyed and woven by individual artists. The dyes used in Avni creations are chemically free, using herbs and plants to create colors. Avni's naturally dyed fabrics are created by urban artisans from Mumbai, who use their talents to create the environmentally friendly fabrics." -CFW
Also, it was a perfect time to tell you to go read Nathan Hurst's blog, the Founder of Cincinnati Fashion Week.

I'll probably be saying this a lot in this post, but Avni is a pro at taking traditional Indian garments, and putting a modern spin on it. For example, this top has a shape hugging blouse with a gentle overlay, sexy while still incorporating the Indian traditions.

I can't fathom the time it took for that garment's fabric to be hand made in Mumbai. But they're about to get more impressive. 

I love the thick, rigid fabric of the jacket with the light scarf on top. It's the same contrast the rest of the collection holds

Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: Johnathan Mezibov



Finally, a menswear designer who designs with equal parts of trend and tailoring in mind.

Jonathan Mezibov's collection is full of shirts that were perfectly fitted to each model, he has a very classy aesthetic to his design and it is right up my alley.

I bet you all are just going to hate looking at all the male models wearing the clothes. Sorry, please stick with me.

I happen to know this model (Dylan) through mutual friends, and he has a really interesting tumblr. Read.

These are by far the best pair of cowboy boots I have ever seen, and I want them very badly.

I love the belt buckles and the boots catering to the western theme, and the bold purples to contrast. 

Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: Amy Kirchen


Amy Kirchen's collection was full of classic feminine silhouettes, (with the exception of the swim wear, but I mean.) as a gay who favors sartorial freedom I love women who wear menswear. These dainty, sexy silhouettes were a nice change of pace.

Such an adorable pattern on that blouse, and I love the high waisted skirt.


This model has THE LONGEST legs I have ever seen in my entire life, and that jump suit showcases them beautifully.



The hair for each of these looks matched the clothing perfectly. The ladies of Mitchells Salon and Day Spa, and Pump Salon did a phenomenal job.

Cincinnati Fashion Week Finale: Laura Dawson


The first show of the evening was one that didn't disappoint.

Laura Dawson's collection was fairly structural, and had a lot of basics necessary for any stylish woman's wardrobe. But, she refined them with little twists in the details of each garment.

The exposed zipper on this seemingly normal overcoat takes the look from "Carmen Sandiego chic" to "Catherine Zeta Jones walking through the rain to a business meeting chic".

Knit leggings made several appearances in Laura's collection, and they were possibly my favorite part. Like the rest of the collection, its a classic look with a modern twist. That chunky knit sweater has an almost distressed look to it which is a welcome contrast to the rest of the collections structure.

You can barely tell in this picture, but my favorite part about that gorgeous maroon coat is that it has a hood.
