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.

9I 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.

      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.! – 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…’

    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
