New York Fashion Week in the Snow
I’ve been looking at all the pictures coming in of New York in the snow..
And between you and me, I’m a thinking that snow and fashion just don’t mix…
But hey – it’s Fashion Week! It’s New York! It’s an inspirational combination!
Except something is nagging in the back of my mind, a niggling, whispering, wicked little voice saying this just isn’t right…. isn’t normal, isn’t human…
I’m loving the style…but tell me, do you hand your skirt over at the cloakroom? And is that before or after you’ve floated there because if you can walk in those heels lady, I’m a pink leprechaun with purple spots, even without the snow…
Ladies, tres tres chic…but please,Why isn’t your pristine fur covered in clinging wet slush? Your tights ripped – your knees gashed? Your bottoms blue?
I love it!…but I have to ask – don’t your toes get cold?
You left in a hurry…but it’s not worth getting hyperthermia for…just put them on.
And socks, add socks..
You too – I’ll actually be able to see your feet turning blue. You can wear gloves? So why not something decent for your poor feet?
These could either be a rare pair of socks. Or an extreme form of fashionista gangrene.
I look…I like…I think inevitable banana skins…
Bet these looked good in the shop. A nice, warm shop. A dry shop. With thick piled carpet to stride on without a care in the world…
My ultimate wish:
1. To be a fly on a wall to see if these people can actually move. Safely. In a dignified manner. More than 2 feet.
2. If they can
shuffle walk – To be magically enhanced with whatever biological gene/super power they have that I am certainly lacking. Snow or no snow.

Love the Russian style fur hats! Definitely helped to keep the hair in style during the snow and the wet 🙂
fur is certainly in……. plenty here in Astana (second coldest capital in the world)
I can’t ever imagine being that cold – it has taken me a while to justify buying fur, but I did succumb and bought my first vintage cape/that looks like a jacket last week. I.am.in.love! – and I also love Bertie who looks similar to my dog Molly…picture somewhere way below in ‘London fabric fair’ post…! x
Too true! But in love with the cape skirt. And speaking as a Rocky Mtns girl, you are absolutely correct, blue bottoms, toes, everything. There are so many gorgeous ways to stay warm! You get to wear EVERYTHING! All at once. I always felt like I was doing The Dance of the 7 Veils. Keep taking things off until you say ‘oops…’
he he! I struggle with the divide between being practical – layers and more layers – and being uber cool – but then is it if it’s not practical? I struggle! xxxx
Practical is beautiful. But the downside is I’m always leaving a trail of gloves, scarves, hats and hankies. You’ll never catch me so practical as to use a Kleenex. Never. One must draw the line somewhere.
The solution IS gloves on strings…but the street cred revolts…
It’s like sunglasses on those string things. I’d rather lose them.
Love the fur skirt but would be afraid to get salt on it! Better yet I’d be afraid someone would rip it off of me for it being fur and spray painting me!
Great fashion post! I don’t get to see high fashion or weather like that here in sunny O.C.
Thank you – although I am lusting big time after your sun…I am looking at a bit of blue as I type this, but it has been a cold, cold winter in London this year xxx
Love this post. And the critique too! That fur skirt is out of this world!
I have to say I love this blog. So well written and crisply executed. Can’t wait to see your capsule collection.
Muchos grazias! not long now.. x
I’m loving that fur skirt!! Thanks for a fresh look
on fashion week!
