Fashion Faux Pau

Today is Labor Day.  It is the signal for fall, time for school to start and for new school supplies, and time to can tomatoes.  But more importantly, it is the time to be aware of one of the greatest Fashion Faux Paus of the year.  Our mothers taught us and their mothers taught them, so too, we must also teach our daughters.  We don't want them to be caught by the fashion police or to be featured on " What Not to Wear".

According to the Etiquette Grrls:

"Can I wear White Shoes / Linen / Sandals / Straw Handbags / Seersucker / Other Warm Weather Clothing before Memorial Day or after labor Day?"

The answer is: "Nope. Unless want to look like a Fashion Victim, that is   We'll make an exception for Brides and Nurses on the White Shoes, and for Monks on the Sandals, but in all other cases, the answer is a firm no."

So there you have it.  Before the end of the day, go to your closet, and do a bit of rearranging.  There's no way you want to commit a Fashion Faux Pau.

Labor Day 09
Or.....Better yet.  Go out and have some fun today and wear whatever you want tomorrow!
Until the next time - Kyle
