I came across this little snippet on my homepage today. Pash rash and turbans, it said (with appropriate pic). The top trends from day one of New York Fashion Week.
And I thought Well bugger me! (as you do) and went to see what (if anything) this year’s elegant woman would be wearing with her pash rash and her turbans.
I was quite taken with the delicate tracery of black string that passes for lingerie ‘in Kim Kardashian stripper style’ and followed the link to a photo of KK herself wearing, along with a few scanty pieces of fabric, see-through thigh-high boots – an image I stored for future reference should I ever break my leg and need a waterproof cast cover for the shower.
But the peak of elegance, imho – the real show-stopper, particularly if you’re startled into unwary movement and end up needing KK’s cast cover – is this.
Well bugger me! I thought – again, being quite tired and not up for much in the way of original thought. Who’da thunk? All those years I regarded socks with sandals as the province of old men (in Australia at least) and black legwear with white/beige footwear the epitome of no-no, and here they are in one glorious fashion package! How inelegant am I?
Very, is the answer to that. But I’m doomed anyway. The pash rash would be far too expensive.
