der schrecklichen franzosischen Pudel,
lives you could only dream of
I think "poor dogs!" might work for the first one (or the first one that came up for me, at least.) I also might have switched the "best" and "worst" models, but maybe I don't understand what they are supposed to be doing. (Also, I wonder if there's some weird photoshop stuff going on in one of the "worst model" pictures, as even w/ the retro swim suit she looks like she's missing a bit of her torso. Maybe it's just an odd photo, though.)
Oh, I'm sure it was fun for the poodles. Who wouldn't want their hair dyed pink by Paul Rudd?
Apropos of 8, I'm glad someone made good use of the Chanel exhibit. I was disturbed by how effective it was in making me want the bag. (A bag I can't have because I blew my bag budget for the decade on Mulberry last year.)
I've never really gotten into the whole handbag thing. But I've passed the Mulberry store on Bleecker and I can see how, if that's your thing, that would be the place.
Not poodles, but still French:http://henrikplengejakobsen.net/sider/works/01_03/sheeps.html
All my other handbags have been in the $10-$40 price range, but I really liked a Mulberry style that was out a few years ago, and my husband remembered it and mentioned it to his mom when she asked what would be a good gift for me. She sent me a gift certificate that was very generous, but by Mulberry standards was about enough to buy a wallet, so I added a lot of my own money to buy a big, dark red bag that I love but am afraid to take out in the rain in case the leather gets spotted. It spends a lot of time on the couch next to FatMouse, which is sad because what I like about Mulberry is how sturdy and indestructible the construction of the bag feels.
