ON MY RADAR | Colored Corduroy Bottoms - Corduroy Appreciation Day?

Who knew there could be a day set aside to appreciate the pattern and fabrication of corduroy? And get this, there's even a members only club --The Corduroy Appreciation Club where they "seek to create a community and, in turn, a sense of fellowship rooted in the historic and culturally significant fabric known as Corduroy."

It all sounds pretty serious, no? So with today being 11-11-11, the date that closely simulates the corduroy pattern, corduroy lovers prepare for commemoration. Although I am not throwing confetti in the air nor will I be signing up for membership, I for one have grown to appreciate cords since my days of a corduroy resistant child. I'm glad they can be found in cool colors!

I'm too traumatized by the stiff, lint-attracting navy cords that my mother made me wear as a kid to get into corduroy now!

If only it wasn't still 85 degrees in South Florida. I'm really leaning towards colored jeans.
