shape it up

Sometimes designers try to compensate for blah, unflattering clothes and boring handbags with ridiculous head gear.

This is becoming a very serious problem.

Don't you know that when a problem comes along, you must whip it?

Whip it good!

idle mind, idol sonnet

John Galliano A/W 08

Upon the cheeks a hint of fat did lay,
That monstrous mark of man's mortality,
Until a dev'lish deal did I thus make
That death and wrinkles would I never see.
So traded I the flesh from 'round my face
In bold exchange for endless centuries.
And though some say I've got no human grace,
My laughter far outlasts but all disease.
Until I met a man one midnight hour
Who lighten'd me the error of mine ways,
For gave he flesh for fantasy and power
But mock'rous threads did damn his lustful days.
Thus there was ne'er a tale so wrought with pox
Than that of cheekless Lord Boskeletox.

This post recognizes Ms. Lundahl and the 7th grade Eastern Magnet Program for forcing a then undersized but rather feisty Haute Fuzzer-to-Be to write her first (and prior to this, only) sonnet. Iambic pentameter, HF salutes you!

did somebody say 'pop quiz, hot shot'?

Please, allow me to take a moment from my random appearance in the G-Star show to answer that question for you...

And tell that wildcat behind the wheel not to slow down, or that fashion won't even get a chance to bleed to death.

pop quiz, hot shot!

There's a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. But before we get to that--tell me, how do I look?

a) Like the 'make your own tissue paper flower' table in the Mexico exhibit of the Children's Museum.

b) Like I'm ready to accompany the Snoopy balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

c) Like Carrie Bradshaw circa season 6.

d) Like I should have left my dress on bus #2525 when it blew up at the airport.

e) All of the above.
