I see a red door and I want it painted black






  • Remember this? Wellllll, I desperately wanted a dress in the same style, but was running out of black jersey. The trooper that I am, I accepted the challenge and decided to make a matching top instead. Worn together, you cant tell the difference - can you? Yes kids, that is a top and a skirt. In retrospect, I think this was probably the best thing that could have happened to me. Not only do I have a dress, I also get to keep my bandage skirt and enjoy a jersey zip bustier.
  • I would probably wear red lipstick more often, If I didn't think that it made my lips abnormally huge. But who know, I might change my mind soon.
  • Shoe shopping attempts = absolute fail. Luckily, my better half is in the city and has already be assigned with the difficult task of gathering some of my footwear and bringing them back here to the island, because flip flops isn't gonna cut it for my trip to the Queen City of the South.
  • I need to quit eating so much sugar.. I keep crashing all over the place from my temporary highs.
  • Have you seen "Mommy Dearest"? Faye Dunaway makes a brilliant bipolar Joan Crawford. The "No wire hangers" scene is absolutely epic.. and the fashion is gorgeoussss. A must see.
  • Im on my way out to a friends birthday with lots of amazing food and wine. Now if only I wasnt still full from that Coffee Crumble ice cream I just had an hour ago!
What did you do/eat/drink/see/want/love this weekend?

Abnormally large lips? Women pay thousands and fuck up their faces to try and achieve what you've got going on naturally!

Great work with the dress/top & skirt. Couldn't even tell and it looks wonderful.

Cheryl said...

You look gorgeous, Dane! Wow, at first I seriously thought that this was a bondage dress.Go with the super red looks, you look in them. ;)

I visited some place yesterday and today I'm going to have Italian fizzy wine for lunch and just chill out at the flat in this summer heat.

Oh wow, love the skirt-top combo! Have the same problem with the shoe shopping at the moment. Shopping isn't fun if you can't find what you're looking for. Great blog by the way!

Stunning! This combination is brilliant. You can't tell that it isn't a dress at all.

I think the red lips look great on you, they add a dangerous-beauty factor.
