Thermomix parties are so hot right now!
Not only are they hot, they are a breeding ground for the notorious Thermomix virus, which creates a style challenge like no other. You want to look good, but you also want to minimise the risk of infection.
How to combine style with protection?
Here are six tips you’ll need before deciding on what to wear to your next Thermomix party. We know that many savvy fashionistas are on a budget, so the total cost of the outfit and accessories we’ve chosen comes in at less than $5000!
1. Swap your handbag for a First-Aid fanny pack
Everyone knows that 2014 is the “Year of the Bum Bag”, with fanny-pack fashionistas like Sarah Jessica Parker and Chanel getting on board with all things bum. Doubling as a portable first-aid kit, this awesome statement bag is brimming with style and saline solution, which you will need to disinfect the wounds of anyone who dares try and guilt-trip you into hosting one of these parties yourself.
2. Douse yourself in deliciously-scented hand sanitiser
We love this multi-pupose fragrance. Not only will this kill 99.99% of bacteria, it will bathe you in the delicate scent of methyl alcohol. Our pick is Cucumber & Melon, for on-the-go-protection with the illogical olfactory combination of two totally arbitrary fruits!
(Note: Thermomix virus is one of the 0.01% of germs unable to be killed by hand sanitiser. Please seek medical advice before using this ineffectual product)
3. Invest in a one-off statement piece like an emergency beacon
Nothing makes a statement like this nifty little neon-green emergency beacon, and that statement says “HELP! GET ME THE @#$% OUT OF HERE!” Your chances of being located and rescued by the relevant authorities are greatly increased, so they are definitely worth the additional expense.
4. Plan your outfit, starting with a protective suit
The foundation of every great Thermomix party outfit starts with an A-grade Hazmat suit, with its full facepiece and self-contained breathing apparatus. These offer the highest level of protection against biological pathogens like the Thermomix virus, and they come in a stylish range of fashionable colours.
5. It’s going to be boring, so your outfit should reflect that
Ear plugs aren’t just an optional extra for Thermomix parties – they are a mandatory accessory, kind of like what fascinators are to the Melbourne Cup. It’s always nice to match your earplugs to your outfit, because it’s the thoughtful little details that pull everything together, transforming a good outfit into a great one.
6. You will need to be drunk for this, so accessorise with a hip flask
You will be stuck in a room watching someone make rice milk custard and fruit sorbet for two hours. You are going to need to be liquored up, and at 10am there are no guarantees that your special requirements for liquid relief are going to be catered to. Savvy fashionistas know that BYO is the new black!
