I saw you looking


The handbag is Fendi. And the jeans? From Guess. These pumps are Yves Saint Laurent. What you’re smelling is Dior. And it didn’t come cheap. I saw you looking so I thought you should know.

But let me tell you a secret.


When I am alone my alter ego rests,

And the me that few have met comes alive.

I strip off the clothes,

The shoes,

The bags,

The various smells.

I stand before the mirror

Naked and alive and damn it feels good!

I’m not proud of the materials.

I’m proud of the choices.

That bag? Picked it out myself.

No one told me to get those jeans.

I decided on the shoes,

And I thought the perfume complimented me.


I am my own person with my own decisions. I am individual and no one can tell me what’s best for me because only I know. I know what I want and I get it. Questions? Good. This is what makes me flawless.

 I saw you looking so I thought you should know.
