Trivia Tuesday – Bras, Karl, and Goats

“I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out” –Dolly Pardon

I know this is more or less a geek blog but I can’t possibly give you a quiz about geekiness because I just don’t know it good enough. So, for today here is fashion trivia, real fashion not geek fashion šŸ™‚

  1. In 3000 B.C.E., experts believe that nail polish was invented in China.
  2. According to Allure magazine, the average woman owns 10 handbags. (I guess I am not average. I admit to having 89 bags)
  3. In 1955, Coco Chanel introduced the first Chanel purse with quilting and a chain strap. (And yes I have one of these.)
  4. In 2004-2005 there were 800 new shades of eyeshadow created.
  5. Louis Vuitton is not known for his punctuality but recently he stunned the audience of a fashion show in Paris for beginning exactly on time.
  6. Elizabeth I owned 2,000 pairs of gloves.
  7. It is rumored that Karl Lagerfeld has an iPod nanny. This nanny is in charge of organizing, uploading, downloading, and keeping track of the music on this fashion icon’s more than 100 iPods!
  8. Clothing from 1920 to 1960 are considered vintage garments.
  9. Cashmere comes from the Kashmir goat.
  10. John Paul Gaultier designed the now famous cone bra for Madonna.

If this were a quiz, how good would you have done?
