On the peplum and burgundy bandwagon, that is! I'm a little late in the game but don't hate me; I live in South America, where everything moves a little slower, and trends just take longer to trickle down.

If you have a particularly sharp eye you may notice I 'ave something resembling a mild case of chicken pox on me legs - this is because nobody in Brazil has air conditioning or, strangely enough, bug screens on their windows. And, as Boyf says, "those Brazilian skeeters are shifty!" which roughly translates to us both frantically clapping our hands around the room at 4 am and still not managing to diminish the herd of giant mosquitos that occupy our room at night.
But maybe I can work this in my favor because - haven't you heard? - chicken-pox legs are the new burgundy! Or so I like to tell myself. Maybe polka dot stockings will be super in soon, though, and I can proudly brag that I don't need 'em, suckas! And all the pretty girls will be jealous of my fashionable scratching.
In other words, if you haven't already, I'd like you all to meet my new things, including this nifty earring and this purse ($30 SCORE!) and Frankie and Freddy (the Siamese twins) and Carlos and Madeleine, a few of the new friends I'm carrying around on this cool bangle. You only wish you were this popular.
