BODY WATCH : Trying On Those High Fashion Images
I love to leaf through a high fashion magazine, looking at those creations that are far beyond my reach. I visualize myself standing in the doorway of some pristine resort, arm up to the archway, a slim shadow cast behind. It’s the second best feeling in the world, not having slipped to depths of self-indulgence, and then having those feelings of guilt and remorse, for whipping myself into a frenzy of shopping for a little number that looks good only when worn by someone who has not eaten more than a stalk of celery in a lifetime.
