High Maintenance

Given the chance,
I’d probably be high maintenance
wanting only tailored dresses and designer shoes
to wear to parties where I can shmooze

Hanging out with creative peeps,
drinking wine and telling stories
before stumbling home at dawn,

thankfully, I’m simply too broke
to squander a few bucks on even a smoke
I much prefer hanging out in sweats and tees
fashionably correct in my Minions jammies

My 2 cents:  I never heard this song in its entirety till 4 days ago and just added it to my playlist.  Because, you know, Michael…And don’t go all out on me because of its lyrics and whatnot.  I like the beat.  ’nuff said.  And again, Michael.


What Should I Wear Tomorrow?

Paper Planes by M.I.A.

My 2 cents:  Unfortunately, my playlist is not cooperating with me at all as far as the questions go, but this kinda works.  Clothes can be made from paper planes.  In my case though, it just might need to be a much bigger paper plane…

Daily Prompt: One For One With My…

Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FAD.

I have this mad love affair with shoes
though I’ve moved on from Jimmy Choos
This one’s quite simple really,
no stiletto heels to
trip me or harm me,
I’ve got no qualms,
‘one for one’
