There are a lot of months between February and September. Six to be exact. So in order to survive the days between fashion weeks, we encourage delusional daydreaming and a touch of self-absorption to numb the separation pains:
Load your iPod with the best runway playlists and leave last season’s blazer at home – because when you turn your everyday life into one big fashion show, no one can ever give you standing room.
Mundane Activity #1: Morning Commute on Casual Friday
Mental Retreat: Seventies Marina by IVANAhelsinki
On Your iPod: “It is Familiar” – Bodies of Water, “Home” – Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
A buoyant saunter down Broadway will effortlessly coordinate with Ivana’s breezy look – even if entering your office feels like walking the plank.
Mundane Activity #2: Picking up shoes at the cobbler
Mental Retreat: Daytime RockLuxe by Rebecca Minkoff
On Your iPod: “Fake Tales Of San Francisco” – Artic Monkeys, “Moving To New York” – The Wombats, “Rich Girls” – The Virgins
Some people might ask, “Why do I have to get all dressed up to go to the cobbler?” And that’s why some people won’t get an abandoned pair of Choos for free.
Mundane Activity #3: Renewing your license at the DMV
Mental Retreat: Post-Apocalyptic Amusement Park by martinMARTIN
On Your iPod: “People Are Strange (Chew Fu Manjamango Remix)” – The Doors
People are strange when you’re a stranger. And there is no place stranger than the DMV, so you might as well play the part with style.
Let’s face it – No one’s “to-do” list is exclusively fabulous. Even Anna has to go to the dentist sometimes. While next Monday's activities might not be Tweet-worthy, you don't have to make it look that way.
