Prior to today’s Julien Macdonald Spring 2016 show at LFW, I had a bit of time to people-watch.

Which prompted this thought: we spend the majority of our time preparing or waiting for events to begin, events which are often short-lived or anti-climactic.
Why not flip the script and catch others’ attention while we’re in down-time?. We owe it to ourselves to star in our own life-shows, whether we’re in line at the grocery, meandering in the front yard or waiting for a fashion show to begin.
