No! Haven’t you ever seen velvet art?

January 31, 2008

Memo to fashion show staff:

I should have been more specific, I guess. I did say my vision for this creation required a model with color in her face and a flower in her teeth, but I meant fiery cheeks and a perfect red rose clenched in her inviting lips.

I did NOT want you to hire a model currently suffering from jaundice, and jam a freaking daisy in her mouth!

I am just so VERY grateful this communication problem was discovered before tomorrow’s show, where I requested a model with smoldering eyes and flaming hair…

I’m not staring down your cleavage; I’m smelling your daisy.

Hi-lighters are far less expensive than eyebrow pencils. Or, so I am told. Er.
