Our April Fool

Oh darlings!
PeaceBang is so tired that she just sat and cackled helplessly over this video of Brenda Dickson sharing fashion and make-up tips from the height of the over-opulent, cheezy 80's:

Thank you, thank you to whoever sent this to me. GOD love you, honey. I really needed that.

That vapid voice! That enormous hair! The way she says "joory" instead of "jewelry!"

Best lines:

"Ostrich feathers, anyone?"
"Snake and jeans are always a great look."
"Here, I've added a fox."
(apparently in Brenda Dickson's glamorous world, one needn't specify that one is wearing, for instance, snake BOOTS or a fox STOLE... it's just "snake" or "fox." And given her penchant for snake, fox, ostrich and leather, Miz Dickson's going to have some mighty karma to work out in her next lives!)

Don't quit watching before the vid's over because you'll miss Bren totally fall apart at the end, where she loses her grammatical skills entirely and says things like, "You can wear burgundy or a real, real dark orange rouge" and "I powder very very good, because that really sets the make-up."

Have a laugh on me, dear ones. We're heading into Holy Week, and we need all the laughter, rest and good energy we can muster.

A hoot and a holler. I see from the comments she has developed something of a gay cult following now.
