Miami- City of (Fake) Boobs

Over the holiday weekend I took a trip to Miami. The weather sucked and did not get a tan at all! I spent most of the time lounging under an umbrella by the pool reading trashy magazines or the New York Times. It was great for people watching. I’ll say this, I saw more fake boobies in 3 days in Miami than I have in my lifetime. There are more silicone enhanced breasts in Miami than in Vegas. Seriously. What was more surprising was the demographic: everyone from 20somethings to 40something moms had them. One might think that this inspired some boob envy but it did not. I have never been more proud of my relatively flat chest! Au naturel is the way to go in my opinion.
This obsession with having unnaturally round, hard breasts is too much for me to wrap my mind around. Why? Most people’s livelihood does not depend on porn star boobs. I mean, right? What I gather from the many plastic surgery make-over shows on TV is that this is a “self-esteem” issue. But true self-esteem should stem from a sense of personal worth and not from a spanking new pair of breasts. That’s my take on it. I think there were times in my less secure days when I did want to have bigger ones, hence my compulsive wear of push-up bras. I’ve since relegated those to the back of my closet since I realized that small boobs are way better in terms of what I can wear without looking like a complete tart.

How To Be A Better Voter. Also, Man Candy

I found this article by George Stephanopoulos called “How to Be a Better Voter” and briefly skimmed it. He makes some good points but the bottom line should be this: want to be a better voter? Vote DEMOCRAT. In the 8 years since we’ve had a Republican president things went from great to “oh shit, we really did it this time!!” The proof is in the shitty economy and crappy Iraq war situation. Who brought all this on? Um…that’s right, Bush and his posse of money-grubbing white geezers.

Hopefully the American public will see the current economic and political hardships as an indication that this country needs a real change when it comes to leadership.
On an unrelated note, George Stephanopoulos is a foxxx.

Dior Couture Show Review

I just saw the pictures from the Christian Dior Couture Fall Show ( and I was nearly floored by its perfection. John Galliano has once again proven that he is a fashion force to be reckoned with.
The palette was mostly subdued tones of white, cream, grey, and black with punches of color here and there and of course, Dior’s favorite- the leopard print. He seemed to draw inspiration from the 20s, 30s, and 40s, pulling the best details from each era and combining them to yield a spectacular array of dresses and ladylike looks.

The models wore retro, cloche-style hats that Galliano brought into the 21st century through the artful use of tough details such as studs and grommets. Their make-up was equally dramatic- a modern Cleopatra eye, reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor. Otherwise, the faces were kept minimal and pretty. The shoes can best be described as “Lady Dominatrix” with sky-high heels and lots of exquisite details.

And the clothes? Oh, the clothes…ethereal, frothy. Galliano is a mixmaster when it comes to combining structural elements like nipped in waists and strong shoulders with featherweight tulle skirts. The result is absolutely brilliant and it gives even his most goth clothes a dreamlike quality. And don’t we all need a little fantasy sometimes?

Man Candy

Mmm, Pierce Brosnan is still the hotness. Although Daniel Craig really does 007 justice, Pierce is still my all time favorite James Bond because he's the epitome of suave sexiness.
