One of the perils of global fashion dominated by countries in the temperate climate, is that from October onwards every year, I am, for some insane reason plagued with a desire to own and wear woollens, sweaters and God-forbid, boots in the hot tropical sunshine. It does not help that being global fashion, the fashion in the international clothing chains boast coats, sweaters, scarves, boots and any number of clothing styles to keep the warmth in and the cold out.
When you live in a tropical climate that hardly ever gets really cold unless you head up to one of the local hill resorts, the last thing you want to do is to keep the warmth it. You just want to let it out, baby! 😀
But I’m suggestible that way, so when I was in Uniqlo last week, I was suddenly seized with a longing to buy a woollen beanie hat. Yes, it was irrational. Yes, I would have looked pretty dumb but I still wanted it. I didn’t get it of course. Not THAT irrational. But I did succumb in other ways 😀
Are you this suggestible? If you live in a warm climate, do you sometimes get that irrational desire to wear something warm and soft and fluffy?
