I zoomed back to the post office, which oddly enough, the postal carrier did not leave it in the usual spot next to my door, but I had to actually go to the PO to pick it up. So I did. I took Bubbles with me to get the book and as we were walking home, I had to control myself from ripping off the brown paper.
We got home, Bubbles, my pink poodle and me. I took off her aqua and rhinestone covered leash and sat down. I used a small blade to carefully cut open the paper and then removed the bubble wrap, which Bubbles then grabbed to start popping in her tiny little mouth. So adorable. Did I tell you she is trained to line up my shoes in a row?
Back to Dita's book. I flipped through the Fetish side first and sure enough, open to Dita in a red and black rubber dress with large ladybugs attached to the wall behind her. All the lovely thoughts came through my head of how cute she and I would be dressed together in our ladybug outfits.
Flipping through the rest of the book, I was reminded of her show I saw recently. Her powder puff act, the famous martini act, her carousel act and her opium den act. I loved them all. What I really enjoyed seeing was her carrot red hair as a child and her silky straight hair in some of her earlier shoots. I like her with straight hair. She seems more real, less polished, more down-to-earth.
My favorite part of her million dollar show, though, is absolutely, positively, 100% - all of her crystals. Black, red, aurora borealis, pink, clear, blue, and on and on. Oh, and her lace up corset, from crotch to neck to head and cinched all the way up the back with seamed stockings and a lace hood. Who knew? Dita knew. You can see more of her on Dita.net.
Love you, Candy
