YES, Lily...! That was a reminder for you! I thought this ensemble would be conservative enough for NASA's astronauts as they spy down on you. We don't want a repeat performance of one particular event whereby you waved to them barefooted with a towel on your head, because you forgot ISS was going to pass by and you, therefore, had leaped out of the shower and ran outside in order to wave to them...remember?
Note: Redder lipstick, gotcha'...!
