http://www.365hangers.com/about/ This is a great shopping site not only because they gurantee70%off each designer item they sell, but they also shoot all the clothes on women with all different size bodies. That means if your any size bigger than sample size, [I am actually smaller than sample size but who’s counting] you can actually see what a dress will really look like on you before you purchase it.

I recently decided it's time to celebrate the little things in life that make me happy, so I wrote a poem about my favorite pen. Please send me poems about your favorite things. email@example.com
Ode to my sharpie
Your look is always dark and clear
There are a few things that I hold dear
In your power you possess
The chance for beauty, a top, a dress
And when at times you are not near
A hush will come to a photographer's ear
What could make this mournful cry
Could it be that your ink run dry?
Here’s another way you can make cheap art at home. Go get a bar of soap (Ivory works pretty well) and carve your portrait out of it! That’s what I did when artist/muse/model Terence Koh asked me to be a part of his Sugar Show at his ASS Gallery on the LES.
