WVW: IFB Conference, September 2011*
I posted some shots of what I wore to the conference in Pre-Party and IFB Con in New York, but here’s a closer look. I did typical Vahni high/low, and that’s not just the hemline I’m talking about.
Of course, I had to do this dress. I had “mullet dress” reverberating in my head when I tried it on—a term coined by the fascinatingly contradictory Wendy Brandes—who makes me feel like a complete proletarian when I’m beside her, though it’s not due to anything she’s done or said. Yeah, Wendy B. Don’t let her Upper East Side, nary-a-hair-out-of-place look fool you. She could sass the pants off you in a string of four-syllable—or four-letter—words, and is adept at both. She is the designer of the swear rings, after all.
Anyway, I think “mullet dress” is brilliant terminology, for the record, Wendy. It might be the only time one can reference a mullet and not suffer the slings of societal stigma. Clever, that. Here’s another for a future Huff Post mullet dress file.
