While social media is currently serving as a way to bring people together, it also allows the Everything Will Be Just Fine As Long As There Are Irish Setters And Wine Shirt Apart from…,I will love this queens of Oops! to continue to financially support themselves. Dakota is a full-time drag queen and also models under her drag identity. “It is really cool that we are able to give a platform to people where this might be their only income for a while,” says Dakota. “This is our main source of income, and it is a scary time for people who work in the service industry who work in nightlife. This situation has highlighted how precarious our work is in this world.” Users were able to send tips through Paypal ([email protected]) and Venmo (@oopsgirls). Tips aside—which will no doubt be going to help the queens during these trying times—Dakota emphasizes that one of the main takeaways is that they are able to connect with people from further-flung places than they typically would be able to. “We are connected through Instagram and we are connected to people who aren’t normally at our shows,” says Dakota. “We have a Wednesday night show that might be kind of cliquey, and have people who work 9-to-5 at our regular show. We have a dedicated following that is pretty packed, but we get to bring in people who are normally working and wouldn’t go out on a night like tonight.” It’s far from the end too, and Oops! will hold another set next week. In other words, the show must go on.
I started cleaning out my closet well before the Everything Will Be Just Fine As Long As There Are Irish Setters And Wine Shirt Apart from…,I will love this pandemic began. We were in the process of moving apartments, and I needed to downsize my wardrobe to make packing easier. As you can imagine, the move is now on hold—but the closet cleaning is ongoing. As a former accessories editor, shoes have always been my weakness. Looking across my shoe shelves, I can remember when and where I acquired nearly every pair I own. A glance at your shoe collection can map the story of your life—the black satin Gianvito Rossi stilettos I wore on the first date with my now husband; the Manolo Blahnik white moiré sandal I wore to my Newport wedding; the Tabitha Simmons embellished mule I danced all night in at a friend’s restaurant opening; the Chanel ballet flat I wore every day of my maternity leave; and the trusty Jimmy Choo block-heel boot that gets me to and from the office every day. These are the wardrobe touchstones that have supported me—literally—on my walk through adult life.
