This euphemism shouldn't need any explanation. In fact, it'd be improper to explain it bluntly which is the point of using a euphemism!

I hope no one is offended, it is all in good fun.

Very fun shoot to do!

Thank you everyone for taking the time to look at my photo.

Is that a modern papasan chair? Can't see the carpet from this angle.

Harsh light on her upper body and legs kind of underexposed...I feel it's kind of unbalanced.

I'm kind of glad that your picture doesn't answer that question lol (judging by the eyebrow colour, I would guess no... lol).

Nice image for sure. Great facial expression.

If I wanted to be picky, on my laptop screen her head was a bit blown out, but it looks much better on my LED monitor.

I like the euphemism here. The platinum colored hair does suggest that the "carpet does not match the drapes". The face and pearls seem a little overexposed, which left harsh tones on other parts of the skin. I would to have liked to see a softer overall skin tone (a slight glassiaun blur would have worked well here.

I am sure you know this, but it seems her top half is overexposed while the bottom is under. There are a lot of washed out areas, which is a shame because it is a really nice composition.
(I'm guessing they do match, once she takes the wig off)
