Reply Rose February 11th, 2009 Lena, Du siehst den Damen der 40er-Jahre verdammt ähnlich. Eva Braun wäre bestimmt neidisch geworden bei diesem Outfit! Reply Lena February 11th, 2009 Eva Braun? Ich hoffe das ist ein Kompliment… Reply Aloisius February 13th, 2009 Hee, was glaubst Du denn. Es kann sich nur um ein Kompliment handeln. Zweifel völlig unangebracht! Reply Lena February 14th, 2009 Na dann bin ich ja geschmeichelt! 🙂 Reply Mima June 4th, 2009 I’ve been to all of the Blitz parties so far, and I can’t say enough good things about them! There’s a great atmosphere, some really friendly people, not to mention some rather spiffing gals and dapper chaps!
