The Return of Whisky Tango Foxtrot!

Filed under: Whisky Tango Foxtrot — Miss Plumcake @ 12:00 pm

Hurrah, it’s the return of Whisky Tango Foxtrot!

If you recall, last time we played, we featured a pair of purple lurex platform court shoes with peacock plumes attached at the quarter. Classy. Some of you thought these were the prettiest things since Eve’s kicky little figleaf number and some of you who apparently HADN’T been huffing extraordinary quantities of glue/spray paint/some other brain damaging chemical offered a host of entertaining scenarios wherein those sparkly purple monstrosities would be suitable attire.

Today I offer you this confection.

I’ve gone on record before as saying I wish I’d worn something ridiculous and frivolous to my high school prom, because as one ages, one’s ability to dress like a disco-crazy rainbow fish emerging majestically from a sea of LSD-infused lemon meringue without a twinge of irony becomes greatly diminished. Sad.

Still, when I came across this, uh, subtle piece of evening wear, I thought it would make a great second entry to our Whisky Tango Foxtrot featurette.

You know the drill. Give me a situation wherein this would be a totally appropriate outfit. Just to make it more challenging, no submissions may refer to Las Vegas OR The Little Mermaid. Too easy.

Have at it and next week I’ll post my favorite submissions!


  1. Next week my daughters’ girl scout troop is having a fancy tea party to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. The invitation states that the girls must dress fancy–costume or real clothing. I would wear it to that tea party along with my daughters who plan on wearing their Cinderella halloween costume. :-)

  3. She looks as if she escaped from my Nana’s bathroom and is on the run from the toilet roll she managed to ditch down a side street somewhere.
