Do you know what today is? Do you?

I hope you're sitting down, because today is International Corduroy Day. Oh yeah, baby.

Corduroy is particularly important to me because I do not wear jeans. Cords are my pants of choice, so soft, so warm, so comforting. There are two pieces of clothing that I must have in my wardrobe at all times one is a black skirt and one is a pair of brown cords.

To honour the day, I am going to be busting out my green cord skirt. Do you wear corduroy? How are you celebrating this auspicious day?

On a personal breakthrough note, for the first time in my life I said the words "my boyfriend" out loud and it couldn't have been more awkward - although I think that probably has to do more with the fact of where I was (waxing salon, OUCH!) than the conversation topic.


  1. Ouch, indeed! I don't wear corduroy but I have 3 black skirts in my closet.

  2. I have owned corduroy (jackets and trousers) but nothing in my wardrobe atm. I find cords can be a bit of a lint magnet and I detest lint. I love denim jeans. I have about 14 pairs.

    And yay for using the word boyfriend, even if it did feel awkward. You'll get used to it.

  3. I live in jeans. I have a pair of cord shorts, which does make me feel like an off-duty accountant sometimes, but they are nice shorts nonetheless.

  4. My day is now complete. I woke this morning thinking I'd forgotten something - now I know what it was ..... National Corduroy day. How could that have slipped my mind?

  5. DDG - Love a good black skirt. No Corduroy? Interesting.

    Frisky Librarian - I love corduroy jackets! 14, wow.

    Matthew - cord shorts are good :)

    Petty Witter - Well, it is oft forgotten poor international corduroy day.

  6. I ALMOST bought a handsome navy blue corduroy jacket at a vintage store but when he told me it was 20 euros instead of the ONE I believed it to be I decided to change my mind.

    I wish I hadn't though. I had several adorable outfits planned.

    Hooray for the need to be waxed! (i.e. the word boyfriend!)

  7. ohh my god! that's huge! How has so much happened since i've been away! There must be filling in later missy!

  8. I like cords but I haven't found the perfect pair yet. I currently have a pair that are a lovely dark brown and super soft but the fit is horrid (too baggy).

    And hurray for using the words "my" and "boyfriend" side by side. It's always good to test drive its use with a neutral party, don't you think? :)
