Hairy Caterpillar – 1990’s Flashback

Welcome to the 1990’s Flashback which caused dievca to desperately hunt for something cosy and fuzzy — and is causing her to currently lust over a color she cannot wear (bottom).

What is Chenille?

chenille

che·nille

  1. a tufted, velvety yarn used for trimming, embroidery, etc.
  2. a fabric filled or woven with such yarn, used for rugs, bedspreads, etc.

Origin of chenille

French, literally, hairy caterpillar from Classical Latin canicula, diminutive of canis, dog (see hound): from its hairy pile.

And…

the symbolic meaning of a Caterpillar deals with pure potential. Symbolizing the promise of the new life dwelling in their bodies. Eventually a caterpillar is going to go into cocooning stage, after which it will birth into an entirely new creature (moth or butterfly).

OK, got it! dievca wanted to be cosy, she wanted to symbolize potential and she was able to curb her Chenille Flashback in an inexpensive way at J Jill and boohoo.com:

The options have been well received and comfortable…but of course dievca ran into these Creatures of Comfort pieces and desire (not need) drives her thoughts, until she remembers that yellow is a rotten color on her…

Are you or your partner currently wearing a hairy caterpillar?
