DI-SIZED CLOTHES NEED A NEW HOME.It's the dress of your dreams. An outfit to Di for. A gown fit for an almost-but-not-in-this-lifetime queen.
OK, so it's been worn once or twice before. But Diana herself, the ex-princess of Wales Wales, Welsh Cymru, western peninsula and political division (principality) of Great Britain (1991 pop. 2,798,200), 8,016 sq mi (20,761 sq km), west of England; politically united with England since 1536. The capital is Cardiff. , owns the torso that it was draped over, so how bad can it be? (We mean, REALLY ... do you think she doesn't bathe or something?)
Yes, yes, yes. We're talking about the Diana collection, those fab-o-rama ``oh-this-little-things?'' from her very own closet that will be auctioned for charity at Christie's on June 25.

We at Take 5 Central think that owning a Di dress could have some merit. After all, you never know when you might need to frouf up your image.
But enough about us. What would YOU do. If you had an extra coupla bucks to spend on a famous little schmatte schmat·te

[Yiddish shmate, from Polish szmata.] , would you want Diana's? Why?
Or if not, why not?
And if the contents of Diana's closet doesn't float your boat, whose clothes WOULD you want to own? (And we want to know why, of course. Doesn't that almost go without saying?)
