It’s that time of year when, at least if you are a female and are in the Western world, where the media and other women start to remind you that you need to fit into that special dress. No not a wedding dress, but the Christmas party and New Year’s Eve party dresses. You know the kind that tend it fit you just so.
But this year, given my health and because I just don’t want to be bothered with any of that, I’ve decided to wear a tent. I’ve already told Beloved of my plans. If you think about it, there are some very practical reasons for wearing a tent.
First off, a tent will be roomy and comfortable. You really just have to be able to get your head through where you place the post, then you can work with belts or other items to create a certain look. Lets not forget to mention that tents will be forgiving.
Secondly most good tents are waterproof or at least will wick away the water. How many times have you been at one of these lovely affairs only to have someone spill a drink on you? Wearing a tent you have absolutely no worries, the drink will simply roll of your outfit and you can carry on with your merrymaking rather than worrying. At the end of the evening, if it’s raining or there is sleet, no worries because your ensemble is designed to handle this stuff.
Tents come in a variety of patterns and colors so you can have fun finding the perfect look for each party. Because you will have chosen exactly how to wear your tent, you are basically guaranteed no other woman will be wearing what you are. The tent can be very plain allowing your accessories to make the look or the tent can be bold and you can skip the hassle of accessories.
And when you are finished wearing your tent you can use your tent for all sorts of different things. Well besides being a tent of course. But the ideas are endless.
In other, breaking news, Beloved has advised me that we wont’ be attending any parties or such this holiday season.
