#yoohoodarling 🍾 I’m not really OLD SCHOOL just CHANEL SCHOOL. Fun Fact: pinball gaming was mechanized in the 1930's during the rein of Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel (1883-1971). Fashion is a game of chance and skill!

FASHIONETTE QUERY 205:
I just picked up my summer photos from Costco. And my GAWD, my play cousin was right, the back of my legs are starting look like the rind of a tangelo. I CAN NOT afford to go to Tysons for lipo this year or next. HELP!
First things first, doll. Be sure to reset your body image by watching at least 3 Bond movies featuring Sean Connery. Believe it or not, there was a time when even women with cellulite could be cast as a femme fatale. Next, purchase some WELEDA BIRCH CELLULITE OIL and combine with the cupping system from LURE ESSENTIALS. Finally, rub down your legs with BLISS FAT GIRL SLIM caffeine cream. Read all about Dr. Oz’ review of using caffeine to reduce cellulite. Good Luck and God’s Speed, darling.
Sorting It All Out
A Faction (Fashion+Fiction) Episode Featuring Fashion Attorney Mariessa Terrell
In an effort to reduce the height of the mail tower that accumulates, as if by magic to the left of my front door, I decided to dedicate Friday between 12 and 2 am to sorting, shredding and filing. I’m up anyway pacing and strategizing on ways to infuse social justice into fashion law so it seems somehow fitting. Of course it’s still dark - but the lilluminated oversized “M” hanging proudly above my bed - bright, but not too bright, helps to lend a bit of party to an otherwise somber pre-dawn chore.
I’m dangerous, wielding an actual gold knife, part of an 8 piece Versace cutlery set gifted by my BFF, Simone Butterfly, Christmas 2015.
The knife, too beautiful for eating re-heated sides from DC’s finest carryouts makes the perfect gilded letter opener. The first envelope I slash open bears a return address from Lori. Apparently she will buy Brookland homes for cash. “If had a nickel for every simulated letter- from a phantom homebuyer, I would not need to refinance,” I say a little too cynically to Paris Hilton Marie who is busy preening in front of the mirrored lingerie cabinet.
After about 20 minutes of ploughing through the pile, I begin to feel exasperated. My English breakfast tea was cold and the CLE that I was streaming on trademark licensing in the beauty industry had ended.
I grabbed the last stack of mail intending to toss it into a box labeled “Someday is not a day of the week;" when to my amazement, the pile leaped out of my hand, diving and scattering in a 180 degree radius just beyond the foot of my bed.
It’s 1 am now and the black tea has been replaced with coconut vodka from a black leather flask that I keep on my bureau next to the Armani Prive. That is when I saw it- a jubilant photo postcard of a magical stallion draped in daisies who refused to be bridled. I picked up the note and immediately laugh out loud.
Yoo Hoo Darling!
What ever you are doing right now…. S-T-O-P! I am sending you a plane ticket to Napa. Par Quoi? Because I’m celebrating what is left of summer and you need to sleep. Don't worry I won't mail the tickets. We both know that you will never find it in that tower of mail near your front door.

The beauty of cultivating a relationship with God: eventually you will reach a point when you are no longer a supplicant but a daughter who has permission to appropriate. As a family member, you needn't even ask; you simply walk in the kitchen and take and eat. Today I am saying NOW Lord. The wait is over. No more delay.
Wild is the Wind. I am feeling inspired to walk forward toward the water's edge without cover overhead or boat underfoot. Some days I am terrified. Yet, I am reminded that Miracles abound even in 2017. #motivated
I agree with Audrey, HAPPY GIRLS ARE THE PRETTIEST GIRLS. But how do you conjure up happiness at will? You can't. But I know someone who can! www.BFLYforJESUS.blogspot.com
Do you #DIYdarling ⁉️ We certainly do and on #Episode1 of Simone Butterfly we learn first hand how to resuscitate a pair of gently worn Juicy Couture waxed denim jeans.
