Dressed To Excess

Judiciously holding back can be more powerful and fabulousshowcasing one erogenous zone at a time, be it legs, boobs, or back. Reveal the goodies all at once, and you can wind up looking like the blonde Greek chorus currently trailing Hugh Hefner.
But as I start high-kicking through my late 30s, the question wont just be where do I stop, but when. As it happens, I have a far stricter judge than myself to deal with now. The other day, in my rush to drive my 9-year-old son, Spencer, to school, I threw on a traditional djellabah robe that I bought at the Berber market in Marrakech and put up the hood. Spencer beseeched me to drop him off around the corner. But darling, I said, its so Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hes your favorite! To which he replied, Yes, Mumbut that doesnt mean I want you looking like him at school!
Im learning: Theres a time and a place. That said, people dont go to the ball to see World Wrestling Federation sweatshirts; they want eye candy, so give it to em. When the jungle drums call you to the party this holiday season, kiss that pumpkin coach good-bye and crank it up a notch.
Remember, if shes any fun at all, your hostess is counting on you.
