FABTV: Billy Idol "Cradle of Love"

FABTV: Billy Idol "Cradle of Love"

Devon. That's her name. The blonde vixen who enters the geeky (but cute!) dude's apartment and asks to play her tape, yes tape, because her family's stereo is broken. Little does the geeky cute dude know what he's in for. She struts in with her high ponytail, black headband, tied boyfriend shirt and short black biker shorts and stirs up quite a show. Some may call it a strip show, but I call it a rockin' display of fashion circa 1990. With her Madonna undertones, Devon declared herself sexy at hello. I may have been eleven years old but I wanted to be Devon and I turned out OK.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the FABTV.

P.S. If you're looking for an easy to assemble, highly original Halloween costume, take note.
