  • Blue Jeans -- Levis jeans of today are direct descendants of the original pair made in 1873.

What was once an apparel associated with low culture-working class and farmers in the late nineteenth-century society, is now a fashion statement walking the runways in Paris for young and young at heart alike.

  • Warning - When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
    with a red hat that doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    and satin candles, and say we've no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
    and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    And run my stick along the public railings
    and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
    I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
    and pick the flowers in other people's gardens and learn to spit.
    You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
    and eat three pounds of sausages at a go
    or only bread and pickles for a week
    And hoard pens and pencils and beer nuts and things in boxes.
    But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
    and pay our rent and not swear in the street
    and set a good example for the children.
    We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
    But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
    So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
    When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple and red.

    - Jenny Joseph, anthem of the red hat lady's group

-- Take a picture of purses - Grandma's purse, Mom's purse, Girl's purse, Teenager's purse. Then list their contents. What is in a woman's purse is a statement of history and personality (like an archaeological dig). My mom carried everything, needle and thread, Band-Aids and antiseptic, as well as anything that I ever handed her to "hold this for a moment." My Grandmother's purse had tons of Kleenex, her own handkerchief, two lipsticks and pressed powder, pills in little pill boxes with a flip lid (not regular prescription bottles), and mints from the last 5 restaurants. I know these details because I use to dump the contents and organize their purses. My daughter's purses have fake lipstick (from their dress-ups), EMPTY candy wrappers, ΒΌ pencil no eraser, some waded up paper, and an empty key ring. I guess you don't want to know what is in a teenager's purse. 3 lipsticks- half used, 1 lipstick crashed into it's top, 4 chap sticks, 13 folded notes that were passed to her (not all hers?), 25 used hall passes, comb/brush, mechanical pencil -no lead, wallet with a picture of herself and the dog (no money), broken earphones for her ipod (Who knows where the ipod is) 9 pennies rolling around at the bottom.

-- I went to a wedding shower and this was one of the games. We dumpped out our purses and someone hosted `Let's Make a Deal'. We laughed for hours.
