Carnivale of Couture: Movie Don'ts

Fashion is a verb:
"My question to you all is this: What movie do you credit with being responsible for the biggest Fashion Don'ts? In other words- Which movie started off clothing trends that never should have been."

Since Flashdance was already taken, by none other than our venerable hostess, I had to ask advice on this one. Enter the man with answers. Without skipping a beat, he answered, "Rocky Horror Picture Show". Thankfully that movie is mostly dim memory to me, so I had to ask him what he meant. I can't possibly post pictures of that here, so you will have to make do with a link to the Bible passage which calls it a "don't". Aren't you glad we now have a more sartorially inspiring cult movie?
But, hey, how about some good news? The next Carnivale of the Couture will be HERE! I have a fun topic in mind; check back, I will post it early. For now I'll just say: be observing carefully the people around you.

Does anyone besides me think it strange that "venerable" means "worthy of respect", but "venery" means "the pursuit of sexual activity"? Hmmm.

Totally off topic!

Yesterday morning as I was getting ready for church I realized I was about to put on my greatest bargain ever (at least that I can remember) -- several years ago (I am thinking 6 - 7 ) I bought two linen jumpers from Chadwick's for $12.00 each - one peach and one flax/ecru. They are fully lined A-line jumpers with welt pockets at an angle on the front. They are machine washable; I hang dry just about everything and they do need ironing, but I iron too, so they are not unusually difficult for me to take care of. So, these do usurp my winter coat as my greatest fashion bargain.
