The Liberation of Rag Balls! Freedom!
February 25, 2008
Motoring along on the Tailgate Rug, 2008 edition. I’m so hooked on this thing that I am lugging around two cones of Peaches n Creme double worsted–as if they were PORTABLE or something. My blue rag balls are holding up well, though I’m a little concerned that there’s a little too much cobalt in the dark blue. But not concerned enough to do anything about it. It’s a rug, right?
So I’m flipping through the New York Times spring fashion supplement, which is something I do only when I’m feeling kind of strong for it. It’s so maddening, that thing. So much energy put toward stuff that often seems self-indulgent, hard-hearted, or just unlikely. I mean: I understand the trickle-down nature of fashion, but I just can’t get too cranked about the day when the sterling-silver clutch cast from a piece of termite-bored wood shows up at Old Navy.
ANYway, I flip past the six-inch heels and the gilded bronze chokers, and I come upon this:
Woohoo! “Free spirit” Chloe Sevigny is grooving on rag balls! Rag balls made from Liberty fabrics, even. High five, Chloe!
PS The runway show of Teeny Project Runway is in the works. It’s hard work, putting on a fashion show, people. It’ll be tonight before the show begins. But get ready. Chloe Sevigny has NUTHIN on you designers.
