I would like to interrupt this mostly-craft blog to bring you an update on world fashion. I would like to declare a this code red alert. The world has gone mad in the fashion department. Did anyone watch the Olympic Opening Ceremonies? I mean seriously!? The world is watching..is that the best you can do?
Australia- not the worst. Their Olympians are attractive people so that helped the clothes. But to me it's a cross between flight attendant and freshman sorority girl.
France...so close. This was the best Westernized clothing I saw (the best overall being the traditional African outfits, you can't go wrong with that) These are also attractive people. Love the hats, love that square bottom tie, love the blazer, love the red belt...BUT what's up with that side strap matchy-matchy purse. You were doing so good and then you blew it...so 1992.
And let's all give a round of applause to the real heroes of this runway event. The poor Chinese women who had to dance cheerleader style (spirit fingers and all) for the entire ceremony. I thought your outfits rocked, especially the built in water bottle holder on you hip. Fashion is one thing, but survival should always comes first.
