You've probably heard by now that today is Corduroy Appreciate Day, because the date 11/11/11/ is apparently the date that most closely resembles the fabric. Our sister site sat down with Emily Gordon, the poet laureate of the Corduroy Appreciation Society, and found out what she's wearing to their ball tonight in NYC. Her outfit includes corduroy shoes from Charlotte Russe, a corduroy bag handmade by her mom, and a green corduroy hat from eBay. [Racked]
