Our very creative and hilarious Michele is on a roll. Michele we absolutely LOVE these posts from you...we look forward to them and the big smiles they always put on our faces. We especially LOVE when you translate the language and actions of our dear Aussie friends...God love 'em!!! This is definitely a new Texan fashion statement from our WINDY!!!
Here's some comments:
The Aussies wanted dearly to participate in the "hat contest". You all saw their submission - "beach cap with flowers" submitted back in April. That hat was modeled by the lovely Kim.
Now we are learning that Wendy is apparently very competitive and wanted her own entry. Still struggling with the language differences between Australia and the US, Wendy translated Texas to mean country. I thought about reviewing geography and the differences between states and countries, but after careful consideration, I changed my mind. I choose my battles wisely and thought the geography lesson would be an up hill battle since they hail from a country that is also a continent.Anyway, Wendy channeled "Minnie Pearl" (the country piece) to submit this entry in the Texas contest. Her rationale, the hat is large, as is Texas. Minnie Pearl was country, which is also associated with Texas. She updated the concept a bit to portray the progressive nature of Australia and left the security tag on versus the price tag. Clever modification Kim. Sounds prudent so far, but look closely. Our friend actually thought the vertical stripes on the hat would work with the horizontal stripes on her blouse. That is just plain silly. Oh, and what is up with the polka dot purse in her right hand???? I did not even want to ask but perhaps you all are a lot braver than me and will make the appropriate inquiries (enquiries in Australian - goodness - it is hard being bilingual).
More to come.
Windy...we love your submission but really...pooka dots and stripes??
