I don't wanna look at the camera...look at my shoes instead. See my pretty shoes? My nice boyfriend jacket, my lovely green shirt? Anything but the thighs.
But NO. I will not listen to that voice in my head. I will not hide my so-called "worst" feature. For I am...

My JLos are nearly 3 years old now - when I bought them, this was an outrageous style! Now you see it everywhere.

Both the ring and the star bracelet were purchased in museums - you can find some amazing stuff in museum gift shops!
