Is Clothing Text: The Palin Wardrobe
Paul and I were discussing Palin's wardrobe choices earlier today so it's only apropos I link this after I just encountered it via Brian Williams. Clothing is textual, indeed. And not only per the sartorialist.
"The Republican National Committee spent about $150,000 on clothing, hair styling, makeup and other "campaign accessories" in September for the McCain campaign after Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin joined the ticket as his running mate.
The McCain campaign now says the clothing will go to a "charitable purpose" after the campaign.
The expenses include $75,062 spent at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis and $41,850 in St. Louis in early September. The committee also reported spending $4,100 for makeup and hair consulting."
The red leather jacket is, indeed, superb and it has gotten much air time.
Btw, this is the picture I included in the entry from months ago about the Argentinian president de Kirchner.
Bringing leather back?
