cat
Cat meets me at a coffee shop in New York City's East Village last night looking like a punk rock Tinker Bell. She's wearing a black lace leotard, a stretchy self-made miniskirt and tiny white ballet flats -- the ones I tried to talk her out of months ago.

Every time I sit down for an interview, the inevitable questions about whether I'm ever in comfortable clothes leads me to believe that people think I spend hours glamorizing and that I trot around in high heels and dramatic clothes every day.
lipgloss
I learned from a young age that cool, blue-toned lip colours make your teeth look whiter, and have spent my adult years searching out those perfect shades that eliminate any sign of yellow in my smile.

Don't even think this is about "Twilight." I'm talking vintage, femme fatale, B-movie vampire diva!
