D O I T Y O U R S E L F


HERE IS MY TRIBUTE DRESS TO MICHAEL JACKSON (CUE CROTCH GRAB, SHRILL SCREAM AND LOOK LEFT) THE ONLY MAN I KNOW THAT LOOKS BETTER WITH AN APPLIQUE THAN WITHOUT AND DEFINITELY THE ONLY MAN I KNOW THAT DOES LOOK TOTALLY AWESOME GRABBING HIS "SMOOTH CRIMINAL" IN PUBLIC. NOW IT TAKES QUITE AN OCCASION TO GET ME IN A DRESS, LET A LONE CRAFT ONE OUT OF FRINGE AND A GARMENT THAT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS DESTAINED FOR THE POLE. (CUE SHRILL SCREAM, CROTCH GRAB, THRUST AND LOOK RIGHT) IT SURPRISINGLY DIDN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL AND PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN A LOT QUICKER IF HALFWAY THROUGH I DIDN'T PUT DOWN MY NEEDLE AND THREAD WITH THE FEAR THAT THE WHOLE THING WAS LOOKING A LITTLE LESS MJ AND A LOT MORE LIKE MICHELLE QUAN AT THE 98' WINTER OLYMPICS. MICHELLE IF YOU'RE READING THIS WHO'S BAD? IM BAD...AND NOW RAMBLING. ANYWHO ENJOY. (CROTCH GRAB)

  5. Please answer me: what is the shade of the YSL lipstick you wore on the pictures with the white t-shirt with shoulder pads? I really want to know. I have tried to ask many times, but I haven't got an answer - so now I try again.. Hope to hear from you this time :-)
