Ok, so here's my problem. I want to go totally glam rock girl for my performance on Sunday. I'm even going to dye my hair again, a darker red (more Shirley Manson and less Pippi Longstocking), and wear black eyeshadow. My problem? I don't really have Glam Rock Girl clothes. I did get a pair of black hip-hugger capris, with a web belt with silver gromits in it, last weekend. I could probably pair those with my black heels. Maybe not. That seems... well, less... glam. I would love to have a black sequined or beaded top, and to wear blood-red lipstick with my black eyeshadow. I need something to go with that kind of look. Something alternative, yet still pretty classy. Maybe a black mini. I have a black vinyl skirt, but it's too short for me to be comfortable performing in it. I want people to listen to my voice, not look at my underwear. I don't ask for much. Also, I need to keep my nails in shape so I can paint them Sunday. I don't expect the polish to last long (just until the performance is over, please God?), but I'm a details person. I can't see going 99% of the way to be Glam Rock Girl, and then have my hands looking like I did the dishes just before I left the house. Somebody, please take me shopping!!
Remember those tiny dolls called Glamour Gals? They were teeny-tiny fashion models with strange names (nothing like real models, haha), wearing all the latest styles. They were always so hard to dress and undress because they were so little, so my sister and I used to just switch their heads. "Gasp! Shara can't go to the club in shorts! I think the red strapless dress that Danni is wearing will look much better." Pop! Pop! Sometimes I wish I could do that with my head, and I could just keep a closet full of perfectly dressed, headless bodies. I would never have a Fashion Emergency again! But I would definitely have to lock the closet door before I could fall asleep at night.
