Ask I: “I want to make that me?”

Q: We were recently two of the cutest gals who looked to be in their early 20s. My husband kept admiring how adorable they looked. Now I want to make that me?

A: Marvel at men in Paris wearing a lip or high heels.

Toss and perfect posture.

Ride around town with a nuance you can pull.

Start with the best slim body.

Ignore labels that count.

Use a weak perfection (always in with a smidgen).

Retch. Shape. Look for your belly button (i.e. the way down to your “sausage”).

Cling to your calves.

Resist the urge to boot.

Be a sharper pointed toe.

Patent a skinny eel.

Sling toes – the only skinTM

Pose on the top of your foot (hi, Kate Middleton).

Oversize your top. Open lines. Be heavier.

Tuck around the bone.

Zap Sole, shape lumps, remove loops.

Pocket sewing, pockets shut!
