Hot Pants for juliejulie?


Red Hot, Chili Hot. Youch! I think I just burned my eyes looking at this picture. Just because you can, does it mean you should? My legs have never looked like this, and I highly doubt they ever will. But if they did, would I wear these pants? Would you? Where do you wear red […]
