Fashions for a more forgettable you…

July 29, 2011

Blog Guy, I need some of your famous fashion advice.

I’m in a business I’d rather not name, but it’s in my best interest for certain people not to be able to find me. Am I clear so far?

I’ve seen nothing, I’ve heard nothing.

Good, I guess you’re smarter than you look in your photo.

So anyway, I like to look fashionable, just like anybody on the run. Where can someone like me go for low-profile high fashion?

I’ve got the perfect place for you. Medellin, Colombia.

Medellin, huh? Isn’t that the place known for…


And the cartels and the shootings and the…

That’s the place. They’re holding their fashion show this week, for people who like to be seen but not seen, if you take my drift.

Wow, that sounds perfect for me. Are important people at the show?

Maybe, maybe not.

But you’re sure it’s the “in” place to be?

Trust me. Everybody who doesn’t want to be anybody is at that show.

Thanks, Blog Guy! I am SO not gonna be there!

@Spin, Hmmmmm, no, too much skin showing. But please don’t bring up the goat – we had to part ways when I moved to the new job. I’m in the city now, and city goats just aren’t the same.

Judging from the “creation” in the first pic I would have to assume Little Lucia is actually little. Like maybe five years old or something.

I think some of those models have items on the wrong body parts…

First picture’s caption should have read:

“Belly dancing skirts exhibit a tendency of riding up on overzealous dancers.”
