As the world awaits the September release of my next collection (see image above), let’s take a self-indulgent and totally whory trip back to my last one, La Dolce Musto, and revel in the praise that was fulminated my way by a variety of media outlets, all properly adoring and slobbering.
I do this not to brag, but to … um … um … well, yeah it’s to brag.
So kindly allow me to jerk off in public by belching up my four-year-old press clippings.
