I have heard Gov. Palin’s style referred to in the press as the “sexy librarian” look but dismissed it, as I do most such remarks. However, I discovered today, thanks to the Carleton Place Public Library blog, Tales from an Open Book, that an Italian design label, Marni has been inspired by us.

The Italian label offered its take on sexy librarians this season, much as Prada did last season. While Prada stuck with more classic lace patterns on its skirts and tops — albeit over flesh-colored linings — Marni reinterpreted lace in its own modern way. Large polka dot cut-outs gave the look a 1960s pop feel, and there was no lining underneath at all. While Prada’s show was kinky and voyeuristic, Marni’s was flirtier.

It would be hard to over emphasize how much I hate these “fashions”. In fact, I feel inspired to let my hair grow long, so that I can put it in a bun.

This is your home town librarian?

It is very easy to change themes and some of them allow one to change the colors, as well.  At our next meeting, we will consider the possibilities and make a final decision.
