Through the brightly lit eyes of the glossy romance of fashion
For some, the black tie wearing season may run throughout the year.
Here at rashbre central it's normally more of a winter pursuit, probably peaking around the turn of the year. It can also mean that the relevant clothes need reviving or replacing from whatever scrape they were in the last time.
So my illustration above from last weekend's early foray into black tie territory may be a little unusual because it also meant arriving bow-tied in daylight, which felt most strange.
Still, the evening passed eventfully and a good time was had by all. Even the moment when a police car pulled up on the gravel drive to ask one of us some detailed questions didn't squash the mood. And don't panic, I had a chauffeur from the fancy palace.
Since then, I've been back modelling tee shirts, including my recent cycling addition*. * Thanks for location instructions, mb
