Avant-Garde – Day 7
Congrats! cmajernik! You won the Kate Spade purse!
As far as the question goes, “Who invented the purse?” The answer is first the Egyptians (purses appear in hieroglyphics) and then in 1841 industrialist Samuel Parkinson ordered a set of luggage and an even smaller bag for his wife to carry on their train trips — the little leather bag caused such a sensation that the modern day purse was invented.
And, as far as Avant-garde is going for me, pretty good, although I’m quickly running out of pants because this look needs a lot of dry cleaning. I was forced into jeans yesterday —
Here I am dressed for a preschool potluck dinner. This outfit says neither “preschool” or “potluck” but no one seemed to notice and I brought a big watermelon offering. I realize that just slicing up a bunch of watermelon is kind of cheating in the potluck world, but do Avant-Garde moms care about the unspoken rules of covered dish gatherings?
I am pleased to say that no, no they do not.
