When we were in London last week, I picked up a copy of the London Evening Standard (as you do.) It was free, and I thought it might be interesting to find out what the pulse of the Big City is like, being a confirmed Country Bumpkin. Didn't use to be such a Bumpkin, but 17 years living outside a huge city and you do view "the metropolis" differently than you do if you are in the thick of it every day.
Naturally, I went to the fashion page, to discover an article called "The Invisible Dress". Apparently, this is what we all need to get through the work week. We should wear a dress, because being just one piece, instead of separates, we can manage to put a look together.
Then there was a selection of quite pricey, quite baggy, non-descript clothes. Victoria Beckham's shift dress was the most form-fitting, and at £1050, the priciest.
Now, my reaction to this news (that I must have a dress, or it will just be TOO DIFFICULT to get dressed) must come as a result of not being in Fashion Central. But I did have to think, "if that is the most pressing thing you have to manage, perhaps you should give the work world a miss!" I mean, really.
