Monday Musings

Spiegel had a 30% off sale this weekend and I bought two dresses I had been yearning for ever since they appeared in their spring collection. The list prices of the two dresses were already reduced by 12%, so the dresses were actually discounted 38% off list price. How could I resist?


The Zoe Mod Dress (orange multi-color) and the Deco Dress (in blue and white) are on the way. The Deco Dress runs small, so I hope they fit and I won't be disappointed. spiegel-deco-dress

I spent most of Sunday doing my income taxes (and that is why today's blog is a little late). To show you where my priorities are, according to my tax records, I spent $1460 on women's wear for myself last year and $97 on men's wear!

Saturday night, I watched Men in Black 3. I liked Men in Black, was disappointed with Men in Black 2, but was pleasantly surprised by Men in Black 3 and I enjoyed the film very much.

I did not expect it, but there is one trans moment in the film. Agent J (played by Will Smith) travels back in time to the year 1969 and visits Andy Warhol's Factory during a "happening." As he passes through the crowd in The Factory, a beautiful female greets him with a very deep masculine voice. According to IMDB, the "Transvestite at Happening" was played by Javier Rivera AKA Rebecca Glasscock, “who was one of the nine contestants cast for the first season or RuPaul's Drag Race.”

Have a good week. Mine ends with a trip to UCONN on Friday to present a workshop titled "Femulate: The Art of Becoming Womanly" at the True Color Conference.


  1. They both look like great dresses!

    I haven't watched Men in Black 3 yet, but I'll have to look for that one. As I recall from the Wikipedia bio, Andy Warhol (or some of his TG associates) was an early influence on Lou Reed.

  2. Nice post, Stana. The dresses look fantastic! I'm sure they will fit you well.

    Spending was an eye opener for me! I haven't done any figuring on my behalf (as far as taxes go) but I'm sure I've done similar spending. Especially with the constant purging and replenishment.

    I'll have to watch MIB 3 (haven't thus far) and 1969 was a very good year but I will admit, I really want to see the transvestite!
