The Next Carnivale of the Couture

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Fashion is the Verb blog has posted the topic for the very next Carnivale of the Couture.

My question to you all is this: What movie do you credit with being responsible for the biggest Fashion Don’ts? In other words- Which movie started off clothing trends that never should have been.

For me, many movies come to mind, but the one that stands out the most, is actually one of my guilty pleasures.

You must go read the whole thing, for her own answer to this question it is both correct and brilliant.

***

Here is the list of the next few blogs who will host the Carnivale of the Couture.

Week of the Monday, June 5th – The Space Between My Ears
Week of the Monday, June 12th – The Sewing Divas
Week of the Monday, June 19th – About Shoes
Week of the Monday, June 26th – Style Bard

Several peoples have inquired about the “rules” for the hosting of the Carnivale, to which the Manolo has replied that they are very simple: Pick the topic, make the announcement, collect the posts, make the links, post the Carnivale!

The Manolo would also wish you to know that step of choosing the topic it is not absolutely necessary.

If you are the next host of the Carnivale and you cannot devise the suitable topic, do not panic. Many other blog carnivals do not have the weekly topic, in the stead they ask each participant to select what they believe to be their best post from the previous week, which then becomes the submission for the carnival.

So, if you cannot produce the topic, announce that it is the potluck week, and ask for the best posts from the previous week….et voila! The Carnivale it is ready.

    Haha. Leave it to you, Manolo, to illumine the origin of my actual blog name: The Space Between My Peers. (Which, of course, is influenced in large part by fashion choices.)

    Yes, one night my family was enjoying hilarity for dinner, and the topic of blogging came up. Actually, The Space Between My Ears was the unanimous choice for my husband’s blog (with the first several posts being nothing but space). And since we are all big on puns and all that goofiness …

    The rest is history. Thanks for the opportunity to host the Carnivale. I have a topic in mind already that I’m pretty stoked about.

    Ayyyyy! This it was the mistake, done unintentionally on the part of the Manolo.

    Many apologies for the error, and many thanks for the graciousness with which it has been received.




  3. Style Bard Says:

    Yay, I’m looking forward to participating! =)
