What if Philippines has four seasons?

Hi everyone, since I am in my blogging mood today, I just want to share what it would be like for our country to have four seasons- spring, summer, winter, fall. Minus the summer, which I think we always have, it would be wise to observe, do or even DREAM of the following, of course that is relative to FASHION AND STYLE. Here are some of my wishlists in case autumn, spring or even winter will happen in the Philippines, (I hope it will, maybe in a billion years from now, or unless the country situates itself near the north pole and away from the earth's equator. 

  • It would be very appropriate for us to wear those Chanel's boots, with cashmere sweater matched with a pedora hat and stripped linen inner blouse and a scarf to go with it. We can go to the LRT and well say to the guard, 'Wait let me fix my scarf' and tighten my boots:
  • Those sheer top and teal colored blazer matched with a perfectly cut trousers and bangles a burgundy satchel would be a perfect outfit for autumn. 
  • You will not worry about wearing sunscreen because you will have the chance to feel the snow and wear those cashmere coat, wool top or a poncho, or a suede or leather shorts or jeans. 
  • Divisoria will still be open for clothes shopping but instead of selling those 100.00 t-shirt or blouse, they would be offering you sweaters, stockings, leggings, boots, scarf of all sorts and patterns and even layers and layers of sheep or wool material.
  • The malls of course will be different. Gone are the days where we see a  mannequin dressed up in a blouse and jeans. It would be so stylish and fashionable that every single item in the mannequin would be like that of Classified Store in Glorietta. You will not be wearing that crumpy blouse or sandals, or ballet flats otherwise, you would end up stuck in the SNOWWWW. I mean, snow, not mud, not puke not anything else..but snow. Can you believe it if it snows in the Philippines? I guess Mall of Asia would run out of skating rink business....LOL!
  • As we are like photography addicts, falling leaves in autumn would be a great background for photoshoots, fashion runways and even prenuptial shoots. 
  • The Philippine fashion week would be consist of four looks, winter, spring, summer and fall. Four shows, four get ups. 
  • We would not only be wearing hats, but different umbrellas and head gear as well. 
  • Filipinos will be so fashion conscious that we will be the next fashion destination in the world. That would be a great news to all stylists, models, designers, photographers, magazine editors... more seasons, more jobs, more livelihood. 
  • Maybe Preview or Mega magazine will publish a gigantic September issue like Vogue, where we prepare almost every outfit of the coming fashion year.
  • Four seasons will not just be a hotel or a juice but more of a lifestyle where every three months the houses get renovated, clothes change, taste in food change and even the animals come out and go based on the season...
  • In winter, the houses are rock solid and we have heater or burning furnace in the house and in autumn we have lots of cleaning to do in the surrounding due to the falling leaves. 
  • In spring, we will be wearing florals, patterns, designer clothes and apparel that speak this is spring. 
  • But my favourite of all seasons is autumn... Though I have yet to experience it. Autumn brings out the best in the person, not too cold and not too hot weather is perfect to do everything from hiking, dining, biking, swimming, shopping and even shoot a fashion editorial. 
  • Clothes in winter are shot in  summer while swimwear for summer are shot in winter. So Filipino models will get ready. 
  • Our skin will be effervescent. We will not need Block and White or Gluta because the spring and winter seasons will make us very white, and we will not be afraid of the sun anymore because we need to get tanned. 
  • The Us Girls tv show will showcase four seasons of fashion, lifestyle and glamour. 
  • Food will also vary since most of us will get to be thin just to be get into that outfit. As what one movie star said in the movie, Bride Wars, Vera Wang does not fit you, you need to fit into Vera Wang. So, I say, the thinner, the better, the more fashionable. 
All these are merely dreams but there is nothing wrong with it. The ambition of having four seasons in the country is well, I guess, an outright from reality, but then again, these are some imaginative occurrences or scenarios that might occur once we have spring, summer, winter, fall.
