Style Points: Tonya Cleans House

Style Points

Meet T. Every morning, she looks at her closets (two large side-by-sides! Lucky girl) and stares. And stares. T wants her closets to only hold “go-to” pieces that work for her. She is, like many of us, so dreadfully tired of not knowing what to wear in a jiffy. Just like many of us, she […]

Style Points: Violet Lips

Style Points

Honestly, I don’t think a classic bright lip ever really goes out of style. To me, it adds perfect polish to the charcoal and other neutrals of transitional Fall.

Style Points: Spring has arrived

I hope you kept your black combat boots and grunge tees from the ’90s, because, if you haven’t, you are going to wish you had for spring! The difference is that in 2013, we juxtapose them with beautiful feminine pieces like a draped neon dress and delicate necklaces instead of exclusively with the baggy oversized jeans and plaids of yore.

Style Points: When Les Dames and IC Kings collide

IC Kings

Iowa City’s own drag queen group, IC Kings, recently joined forces with Les Dames Burlesque d’Iowa City for a one-night gig at the Mill. In their collaborative acts, the Kings looked even more “Kingly” standing next to the ultra-feminine expressions of Les Dames. Painstakingly creating their male expressions from scratch in daring and original ways, as one audience member remarked, during the large group numbers it was easy to forget that it was, in fact, all female performers on stage.
