There are few things better than being naked. This blog is devoted to those things. Clothing that demands being worn. Ideas that make you feel loved. People who are so sexy it almost hurts to think of them naked... Almost.

This summer I’m going to live in boostiers, this vest, and high waist skirts. I have two boostiers that I haven’t worn since 2 summers ago. I’m breaking them out again this year! Holla!

Why hellooooo lips, eyes, and everything.

Where can I get a parrot that will undress girls?  (Also, killer shot.  They just don’t make ‘em like that anymore!)

My love of burlesque and macaws just met… It was spectacular.
