Enter the Ragamuffin

slumdogmillionaireIn some earlier posts, I’ve been musing about watching what films and fashions are entering the zeitgeist as Pluto is in the earliest degrees of Capricorn.

Luxe and lifestyles of the rich and famous are dead, thanks to a 40% decline in the stock market last year and fraudsters like former Nasdaq Chairman Bernie Madoff and Satyam Computer Services Chairman B. Ramalinga Raju.

So what’s haute now? The “ragamuffin look.” There’s even a new line called Born as a Raggamuffin that I discovered at the blog I Like Her Style. (The fashion firm spells its name with two g’s, not one, for you sharp-eyed readers out there.)

So who’s everyone’s favorite ragamuffin right now? Jamal, the hero of Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, the rags-to-riches tale of a Bombay orphan.

I went to see Slumdog last week with my new BBF (Blog Best Friend) SFMike from Civic Center. Maybe if I’m a very good girl, he’ll introduce me to Princess Sparkle Pony one day!
