As London fashion week approaches; everyone who is important, once was important and perhaps wants to be important; picks out the specifics for the weeks’s events. From handbag selection, arrays of accessories, the daily “look”, and trends intending to follow or set to entire outfits and back up outfits for fear of being upstaged. Yes, being upstaged is considered valid grounds for changing an outfit, reevaluating it and changing it again; especially if you are one of the less important people seeking a title, or just a female with the prerogative to change your mind 5 times a day.
Howeverrrr…Lets not forget due to London’s recent display of “typical British weather”; reconsideration may be down to one other thing. Rain. With worries of ruining an item of clothing, pair of shoes or god forbid an entire outfit; by getting it wet or worse shoving a rain mac over it; why risk it?
Wait for a better day, or at least a day with minimal possibility of rain. I mean why risk losing the red soles of your Louboutins to wet pavements or having to walk around with soggy fur all day, or horribly damp and uncomfortable jeans; with a day that claims to be a 60-percent-chance-of-rain-kind-of-day, knowing tomorrow is a rain-free day. So it may be ten degrees colder but the term “no pain, no gain” in reference to fashion, does not mean go flaunt your stuff even if it is pouring with rain, but to “grin and bare it” for fashion’s sake. When your teeth are chattering, your arms have goose bumps and your nipples are starting to show; all the while, wondering why you never wore a jacket and wishing you had tights in your bag; you might not be so disheartened given that your lack of sensible clothing makes up in character and compliments. Lots of compliments, because let’s face it; who at fashion week was ever remembered for the way they done up their coat buttons, wore a wooly hat and covered up every inch of their body?
