Ok, the title is a lie It will and has been raining on me on numerous occasions, but the question is NOT whether I will get wet. Because that is a certainty for someone like me who refuses to carry an umbrella given that I lose about ten brollies every year. No, the question is, whether I'll be happy to get wet, which is down to whether I have something like this bit of rain outer gear to keep the spirits up. Not only will I be happy to get wet, I will literally skip down the street which will inevitably make me trip up on a rock and even when I land on my arse and bruise myself, I'll still be a happy chappie because I'll be wearing this polka dot clear rain mac.
I'm getting a bit spoilt in terms of rain friendly outerwear given that
I've only just bought that gingham Valentino coat from Claire Inc. However, when I came across this mac on La Meow on Etsy for a more-than-reasonable price, I decided I needed a bit of plastic cheer, the type that smells really really artificial and slightly sweet (those of you with addictions to the smell of truly plasticky plastic). I've suddenly found myself with slightly more time to browse around the likes of Etsy/Ebay, to train myself not to become lazy in my shopping habits because for a while, I was losing my will with the 'patient search'. Fortunately, with more and more curated vintage selections popping up all over the joint, frankly, the task is becoming an easier one. La Meow's updated blog gives a wee taster of what her Etsy store is all about in terms of its period-mixing selection of vintage.
If I should fall in my rain skipping, I'm also hoping SWANclothing's sock garters will also stop my childish eyes from welling up (let's not talk about the time I cried like a baby when I twisted my ankle in a non-sympathetic hospital in Paris). Especially if they're attached to something colourful like these Falke football/footless sock type things.
So conclusion. My hair will get wet. My make-up will run. But there will be nothing but cheery glee from me as I scramble about in a puddle, scooping things back into my bag. All inevitable of course.
