High fashion, it’s all in the execution?

July 31, 2009

Blog Guy, please let me jump in here quickly because I have special fashion needs which are fairly urgent.

Okay, I’ve never heard of urgent fashion needs, but go on…

I’m Judy, a wartime spy facing the firing squad, and naturally I want to look my best. I’m furious!  No designers are producing chic blindfolds!

You’re right, largely because there is very little repeat business. I think I can help you, Judy, but these designs haven’t been made public yet, so you have to promise not to give this info to anybody else.

Hey, I’m a spy. Of course you can trust me not to pass along secrets!

Okay then. For starters, what’s your best color? Judy? Judy?

Are they just trying to see how dumb women are? If this catches on, I give up.

There has got to be nothing more embarrassing than having your negligee blow up into your face.

It’s too bad Judy just got plugged. I think she’d have looked good in the orange ensemble, no burqa required.

If your burqa should detonate or…, Hopefully, you’ll still have enough cloth to at least do a respectable T&A cover job
