Quirky Clothing

Take a good look at the pattern on this woman's dress. Yep, it's scissors. I saw all sort of interesting everyday objects incorporated into fabric patterns. Giant razor blades. Bright CDs. Forks and spoons. Combs.

Another peculiar phenomenon was leaving labels visible. A man's reading glasses still had the label in a lower corner when he's using them. A man in line at immigration at the airport still had a big label stitched onto the sleeve of his suit. Someone put their shirt carefully over the back of the chair so the label showed.

I am sorely missing the 7 cent avocados I was eating in Kenya. Yes, a mere 5 Kenyan shillings--or 7 cents each.

You are amazing. I do that label thing too, only by accident. I run around looking like a slob while my three kids (5, 3 and 2) appear mostly clean and fully dapper. Keep that travel logues coming.

I'm picturing giant razor blades on a dress and thinking that it might look rather macabre. :-) As for the avocadoes, my god that's cheap. If we had 7 cent avocadoes here I would turn green from eating them, therefore fortunate I suppose that they cost much more.

Hm. Well, I guess we advertise companies on what we wear so, scissors? I wonder if they'd let her on to a plane in that.

As long as none of the fabric has tampons, or syringes on it, i'm ok.

I get the creeps from that new credit card commercial where scissors walk the streets. I think we are supposed to think they are cute. But I can't help worrying: What if people fall! What if the scissors get mad! Wha tif children try to play wiht the scissors?
