The Trashy Lingerie store (online, visit Trashy.com) is a Los Angeles institution specializing in handmade and bespoke lingerie and costumes, and housed inside a fabulous Pink Building. They had already closed for the day when we happened to pass by in mid-December, but I did get  a snap of one of the front Christmas-themed window displays!

These Hot Pink custom boots, designed to mimic a pair of cat’s paws, were worn by pop star Katy Perry on her 2014 Prismatic Tour. Created by NYC-based design house The Blonds, the boots were part of a Pink Leopard-Print, Stretch Velvet Catsuit (seen below) worn by Perry onstage.

Boot Worn By Mrs. Potts in Beauty and The Beast

This colorful, lace-up ankle boot is one of a pair of boots worn by the actress playing the character of Mrs. Potts in the Broadway production of Disney musical, Beauty and The Beast. Aren’t they fantastic? If it weren’t for these photos you would probably never have seen this rad boot, as Mrs. Potts‘ feet are generally obscured by her nearly floor-length skirt (and the fact that she is, you know, a human teapot).

Alice Cooper in Wonderland

When my friend Liane and her husband Neil were invited to a Wacky Alice in Wonderland-Themed 40th Birthday Party, they took the term Wacky as seriously as possible. Not only did Neil go full drag as an extremely authentic blonde-haired Alice, but Liane took her look even further, recreating the classic Shock Rocker eye makeup of Alice Cooper. Seriously, that is just genius. Genius!

Neil and Liane

Although they are obviously having a great time at the party, notice how Liane stays in character. What dedication!

Liane is also the mother of adorable, two year-old identical twin boys! Welcome to her nightmare!

Here they are again at the party! It looks like fun! Alcohol!

Alice in Wonderland Cake

Today Liane also posted a photo of the cake on FaceBook! Amazing!
