Getting Real.

M: Tell the truth, if you saw this walking toward you on any given day:

Would you pee your pants right on the spot?

A: Like a nervous spaniel. Is she a fashion Dementor?

M: I think she is a freaking alien.

A: I like her handbag, from what I can tell but I'm too scared to get a better look.

M: Something about her is making me think of the Diva from The Fifth Element (one of my secret favorite movies, don't judge):

But she still scares the crap out of me.

A: Oh, totally! I do think she's pulling off the "draped in white boneless waif creature" think admirably. She looks fantastic. Scary, but fantastic.

I just hope she doesn't take a header in those shoes.

M: I am pretty sure she can fly, so no big.

A: Oh, that's probably true. Though thinking about her tripping reminded me of the time when I was in college and the local vampirey-goth couple was gliding down the sidewalk all ethereal and the female half tripped and totally took a header and we all laughed and laughed. Mean, I know, but it was really funny at the time.

A: Actually, it's still funny. To me.

M: I just laughed. I am mean! And THAT reminds me of the time I saw our local tough as nails, PBR-drinking, tattoo'd, tortured artist rockstar at J.Crew, loading up on some Tissue Tees.


M: It is probably wrong how satisfying I found that.

A: Nothing says gritty loner like J Crew, that is for sure.

M: I'm going to throw down and write some soulful shit about these here Cafe Chinos.

A: You just made me snort-laugh.


Woke up this morning
put on my Saturday sweater
you may have left me
But I've never looked better.

A: I just wiped away a little tear. With the corner of my Lady Lace Popover.

M: I don't know how we ended up here, but I'm glad we did.


  1. I love you guys so hard. I really needed a laugh right now.

    Oh, and if I saw her, I'm thinking Banshee and somebody's about to die. And yes, I might wet my pants just a little.

  2. She's spectacular! God bless, I wish I could pull that off! Oh never mind the plastic shopping bag and what looks like a remote control in her hand.

    PS - you guys warm the cockles of my heart

  3. can we agree that it's the hair and makeup that really turns this from almost unacceptable to terrifying alien? Picture the outfit on a girl with minimal makeup and 1970's long hair. Wayyy less crazy.

  4. She looks like Stevie Nicks, back from the dead, reincarnated as a scary white witch. I'm seeing a bad Narnia stage production...
    And, is that a dead leopard in her hand? I swear I see a paw.

    Adrien -- I TOTALLY know the goth couple you're talking about. Wonder what they're up to these days...

  5. Ashley, I am almost positive you were with me when that incident happened.
