on the importance of copy editors

I went down to the Fashion District yesterday morning. I giggled when I saw this storefront.

I should snap a photo of the antique furniture store down the street from my place. They advertise great prices on "French Pervintial" furniture.

{In case some of my international readers have missed the point, the correct spelling for the above should be: crepe (as in crepe de chine a type of crinkly fabric - sorry, I know I'm missing some accent marks in my spelling), gabardine (sometimes used for suiting), tulle (a light sheer fabric, think ballet tutus) and taffeta (a shiny fabric that I think looks a lot like wood grain)}
