|Army green is so last year,|
but Poetry Friday is always in style.
I have recently connected with an old friend (we met in 7th grade) who loves hats as much as I do, but is much more facionable than I. Check out her blog-with-an-attitude, Pretty Cripple.
I should have realized when I learned about Museum of Fine Arts, Boston's current vintage postcard exhibit, "The Postcard Age," that postcards are on-trend. Since I began the 44 Postcard Project, I've heard about postcard websites (Post Secret) and literary postcard contests (Geist).
But it wasn't until last night that I realized: Postcards are the new Black, this season's height of literary and artistic fashion.
Last night, the Academy of American Poets posted this:
|The 2013 National Poetry Month Poster|
I spy postcards!
In keeping with our fashion theme, Postcard 21 is the height of vintage fashion. When I spotted this postcard in a local antique store, I knew I had to have it for the project. It has just the right blend of haute couture and hairball. This postcard puts the "kit" in kitschy.

I happen to own a very elegant pair of vintage ladies gloves. They are perfect for the symphony.
