TCA Tour Party Is A Whole Mess Of Meh

The print puts me forcibly in mind of, yes, Roxy by Quicksilver. TCA Tour Party Is A Whole Mess Of Meh Gina Bellman's mini is another I just wasn't feeling - although I'm willing to concede that it could work better in person. I do think the camera brings out the dress's horizontal tendencies in an unfortunate way. TCA Tour Party Is A Whole Mess Of Meh 17-year-old Graham Patrick Martin is also a Bill Engvall Show kid. He just looks so disconcertingly well-groomed and Hollywood and young-actor-ish!
