Saskia Larraz Trunk Show at Allium Tonight


I’ve started hand-washing (or rather, machine-washing on the gentle cycle) my dry clean-only sweaters as a cost-savings measure…which is mostly working fine, except that doing so somehow ruined (shriveled up and shrank) my beloved lucky green Eileen Fisher sweater. I bought that sweater to sell the proposal for Searching for Mary Poppins (which linking the title just now, I see is currently selling used on Amazon for a penny…nice) and wore it in the Berkshires to all meetings at which there seemed to be anything important at stake. Now it’s gone and I need a new lucky talisman.

That’s my ever so reasonable and rational business justification for attending Saskia Larraz’s trunk show at Allium tonight in Great Barrington. Don’t you agree that this bracelet is the key to my professional future?

    Give me the sweater and I’ll make you a new keepsake from it. One that you can carry in your bag so it can be with you on big days.

    What a kind offer. Thank you. The sweater is ruined, but I haven’t actually had the heart to throw it out yet.

    Ran into loyal blog reader Lesley this afternoon who informed me that I didn’t ruin the sweater, I felted it.

  4. Kari says:

    That’s right. You felted it and therefore I can turn it into something else for you. A change purse, an Ipod cozy, a cell phone case, a business card holder, a pin for you to wear, a tiny pillow, a pin cushion… you can still keep it close.

    In the meantime, I vote yes on the bracelet.
