I’ve Got That Tune


I’ve Got That Tune

Ciao, my dolls!

I walked out onto the BDA courtyard, the smell of fresh peonies immediately appealing to my senses. My new Gucci heels fortunately didn’t sink as I walked across the fresh lawn over to where Rachel was reading Pride and Prejudice. I sat next to her with an arch of my blonde eyebrow.

She shook her head at me and then put the monstrous book down. “So what brings you here?” Rachel asked.

I frowned, smoothing out the twisted gold links of my bracelet, “We haven’t had any STARS meetings or bonding time since Spring Break, so I’m officially inviting you to our sleepover meeting at 9:00 tonight, when Poppy will promptly be thrown out of the room.”

Rachel just laughed, rolling her eyes, “I’ll be there.”

I gave her a smile, before adjusting my Bare Minerals Cupcake lipgloss, and strutting off. And yes, I do strut.

With a sigh of content, I threw my favorite dark purple pillow onto the ground, next to Sadie’s. Luckily Poppy went with few complaints, and I got everyone to show up on time. Serena is always late- this seriously needs to go in a record book or something.

“Okay so we’re down to two choices,” Taylor announced, clicking through the options of the flat screen in the small lounge room adjoining our two dorms. “PLL Marathon or Kardashians?”

“Kardashian!” Rachel yelled, and clicked the option before anyone could protest. Serena laughed and rolled her eyes. Rachel had a minor obsession with Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Taylor pressed play and leaned back into her lavender bean bag chair.

I scooped up a handful of pink jelly beans, popping a few in my mouth and throwing a few at the back of Sadie’s head. She kept giving me hilarious death glares. I just smiled.

In the middle of Khloe trying on a new dress, a hideous one to be honest, an orange ribbon came onto the screen, and beeps sounded from the TV. A collective gasp echoed around the room.

“BDA is closing?!”

T.A.F Round Five

Five beautiful girls were scattered around Massie’s bedroom.  Massie was putting her finishing touch on her outfit: her charm bracelet, Alicia was busy staring at her reflection in the mirror, and everyone else was eyeing Massie to see when she would talk.  None of them knew what she would say next.  She was in mental shock after hearing her parents tell her that Isaac was off-limits to her for the next week.  All Massie told them was that they needed to have their hair and makeup done, and cute outfits that were perfect 10’s.  None of them had any idea why.

 “Massie… where are we going and what are we doing? We have no way of getting anywhere without Isaac and no one else’s drivers can take us anywhere… spill!”  Claire finally pushed her to say something.

 “Let’s go girls! We have somewhere very important to be.  Trust me, it’ll be fun and worth going to” Massie replied, smirking.  So the five of them hurried down the stairs and out the door.

As the girls designer heels hit the smooth concrete, a loud whirling sound could easily be heard from down the streets. “Ehmawgawd!” Alicia gasped, raising a French-manicured hand to her mouth. “Is that a.. helicopter?” Kristen breathed, her Chanel coated eyes widening to the size of saucers.

Kristen was dead-on, as usual, and the little white helicopter sat happily as one of it’s doors opened, revealing a long-legged brunette. “You are Massie Block and friends, yes?” She asked, a Brazilian accent showing as the woman smiled. Massie stepped forward from the Pretty Committee and grinned back, “I’m Massie, yes. You must be Angelica?” She asked, twirling a curl around her finger.

The woman, Angelica, nodded, “Angelica Castillo, yes, and if you don’t mind, we have a show to catch,” she said politely, opening the door for the girls. They filed in one by one, somehow squeezing into the tight space.

30 minutes later, they were being filed through silver doors, different people wearing headsets and clothes flying everywhere. “Where are we?” Dylan asked, amazed. Angelica was pushing her way through the crowd, leading them. She thrust an orange door open, revealing a hoard of outrageously gorgeous girls, “Welcome to the Dolce & Gabbana April Fashion Expose!”

The Pretty Committee squealed with delight, of course they’ve been to tons of fashion shows- but backstage access was granted to celebrities, models, designers, and assistants only. “How did you pull this?” Alicia asked, grabbing onto Kristen’s arm in excitement. Angelica spoke up, “Ms. Block entered you all in the Teen Vogue D&G Contest a few months ago, and you girls won. Your prize is participating in the expose, and keeping one of the D&G dresses you model for us today. Plus an interview in the May issue of TV.”

Once the girls were all rushed through hair and makeup, and fully dressed, they got in the line of models.

“I can’t believe this is happening,” Kristen said, smiling. This is why Massie made them perfect their runway walks last sleepover.

Massie winked at her, before stepping out to take her turn. She walked flawlessly through the gardens, loving the bright flashes of photos being captured. She struck a pose before the daffodils, and then walked into backstage. “You were awesome!” Claire squealed, waiting her turn as the last girl to go.

“Thanks Kuh-laire, did you expect anything less?” Massie teased.
