On Why Buying From Emerging Fashion Designers Costs More Money (and Why That's Okay)

@papillon I have zero problem paying a lot more money for ethically produced clothing. Make something I like that fits me. That's all I'm saying.

I love that commercial, to be honest. :D

On Why Buying From Emerging Fashion Designers Costs More Money (and Why That's Okay)

I like rayon. It's a versatile fabric that first became popular in the 1930s, when swanky society types would wear it made into drapey gowns, and ordinary ladies would wear it made into bright patterned frocks, with bakelite jewelry.

I would love to support up-and-coming designers, but they don't make things I want to wear to work, it's hard to find the romantic and feminine designs I like, and it seems like lots of them only make teeny sizes. I'm sure the designers do care about their work, but I don't think many of them care about me.

@Donovanesque Hey hon, this may not be the open thread. It's looking less and less like it, tbh.

On Young Farmers to Rule the World: The Book

@Tragically Ludicrous I remember after college when I considered joining the Peace Corps (I don't know) and all their literature kept mentioning beekeeping. Like in about 14 different places: "Let us know about any special skills and hobbies you have, LIKE BEEKEEPING..."

On Young Farmers to Rule the World: The Book

@travelmugs I wonder if you are one of my BFFs in real life :D She grew up on a farm in Iowa and has told me some lovely stories...she wrote a great poem about hosing out the pig, um...I'm not sure what they were actually. Pig houses? Anyway, they were full of crap, and gross. One time a girl who met her in college was like, "Oh, you grew up on a farm? That's so cuuute!" No, it wasn't.

@Daisy Razor Ha!

I know someone who got into beekeeping and now she uses honey and bee metaphors constantly in conversation. I kind of like that.
