I love accessories
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’re used to seeing me wear sunglasses year round. But my love of accessories goes deeper than that. After all, I match (or sometimes contrast) my gloves to my coat. And I have probably more scarves than t-shirts. And I certainly seem to form an emotional attachment to my bags.
Yet, this post is not about any of the above. Instead, I decided to name the umbrella The Accessory of The Month.
No, I don’t particularly like umbrellas. And no, I don’t collect them either. Not the same way I would collect, say, scarves or bags, anyway. I have quite a few, though, but doesn’t everyone? I mean, doesn’t every woman carry an umbrella in her bag? I certainly keep one in (almost) every one of my bags. And yes, the umbrella matches the bag…
Anyway, the humble umbrella is The Accessory of The Month simply because it’s November now, and bad weather is the new normal. In other words, The Accessory of The Month is shorthand for don’t leave home without it.
So, in order to celebrate this well-deserved honour bestowed on this often overlooked and underappreciated accessory, this is me, doing a little dancing in the rain routine. Well, to be honest, I’m not sure if we could call that rain exactly. Let’s just say it was something wet: not rain really but not quite snow either… Yes, I know there’s a word for it. But to say it out loud sort of makes winter seem a bit more real, and I’m not quite ready for that yet….
