Aaaaand speaking of hair … I’ve written posts encouraging women to lop off their locks, but I know the pixie isn’t everyone’s hair fantasy. I also know that hair fantasies aren’t always possible. Yes, hair grows back … but maybe you’re a corporate lawyer who can’t have mermaid hair. Or maybe your infant insists on yanking any available strands, so cascading waves are off the table for the time being.
But let’s say you could do anything at all to your hair today, and have it go back to its current state tomorrow. What would you do? Chop it off? Color it wildly? Trade short hair for long? Go natural? Share your hair fantasies.
I buy the Vogue Paris Collections compilation twice a year. I have a note in my calendar that reminds me when the coming season has been released, and I buy and devour it immediately. And then I cruise through again a few more times over the following months to digest and re-read the commentary. It’s a ritual I enjoy, and helps me stay informed about trends and high-fashion happenings.
But I could not possibly care less about Fashion Week. Which is really Fashion Month for the people who attend shows in multiple locales, and they all write endlessly about it. I imagine it’s very exciting to be there and get swept up in the glamour, but I’m much happier taking my time and flipping through the highlights several months later.
I’ve never done any coverage of Fashion Week here because I assumed no one cared. I can’t imagine starting such coverage now, but I’m still curious:
Do you care about Fashion Week/Month? Do you follow any of the coverage? Gobble it up as it’s posted? Does what’s happening/trendy from the runways interest or affect you at all?

Super-specific, I know, but I’m curious to hear your thoughts: I’ve come to love the look of cute bras showing through sheers, as well as a pretty strap peeking out from a neckline. I’ve even purchased a few fancy ones with the idea in mind that people other than myself and my husband will see them. (Or bits of them anyway.)
Why? Because I’ve loved the look on others. Because bras can gorgeous, and it really shouldn’t shock anyone to get a visible reminder that we wear them. Because it’s one of the few things that certain stylish French women do that really appeals to me.
How about you? Do you ever let your bra straps peek out intentionally? Do contrasting bras under sheer tops? Like the look on others, but take a pass yourself? Do tell!
