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.

    At a first glance this “Mullet” idea’ s capillary vibrancy is far to flirt with Sexy / Glam indeed, AND I (bashfully) must confess that this (strongly enlacing) Harness Here tends to catch all my “SM CHIC(icious) attention Dear V !!! “Uber Radiant day-to-day Mistress-ittude” . . .

    You know, I’ve had a harness similar to that for over a year now, and I’ve never worn it. What the hell am I waiting for?

    V, you are so stunning… I love your hair with the soft waves like that. It’s so pretty. The dress, the boots, the whole thing you’ve got going on is just to die for. Oh, an that leather body chain, harness, thing-a-ma-bob is hot sh*t! I love it!

    I am so sad I missed your panel. I totally forgot to tune into IFBCon until the afternoon. Hoping for some good video footage on IFB.

    I feel like this comment is all over the place. It’s friday. I’m tired. Have a great weekend! LOL :)

    I wish I was like this one guy I worked with at Lehman Brothers, who shamelessly took credit for all good ideas while shifting blame for bad ones onto everyone around me. But I’m not, so I’ll have to point out that I did not invent the term “mullet dress.” It’s probably been kicking around since the unsightly Oscar dress worn by Geena Davis back in the day! The only thing I can take credit for is developing an obsession with the look! And, yeah, you WILL be in an upcoming post, because you looked hawt!
