      So you’re a true fashionista ! Maybe you could make your own version with pictures of David Gandy (LOL : I still can’t believe he read your post that was dedicated to him !!!).

        Hahah, I am totally fashion (and David Gandy) obsessed! You are so right, David inspired ensemble would be sexy and hot 😉 That man is definitely a work of art. (LMAO, we still can’t believe he read that post — and that he liked it that much? Flattering! XOXO

      I so agree ! The other day, I saw Donatella Versace on TV, and she said that fashion was not art : I was pretty shocked because I think that fashion can truly be art !!! XOXO
