True blue.

Saturday, 17 May 2008



So London was hit with an unexpected heat wave resulting in people(slow walking tourists in particular) happily crowding the streets and defying the soaring western economy by engaging in impulsive retail shopping.

With the temperatures causing people to sweat in the underground trains I couldn’t blame girls wearing short shirts for exposing their skin in order to vent their body. Having a wardrobe dominated by proper trousers I gave into the May shopping bonanza by snagging a pair of shorts and fell in love with a pair of Smurf-blue short shorts to keep my legs cool.

Ultimately buying clothes for your lower body tend to lead to purchase of something designated for your upper body. As a fashion addict it didn’t take more than a few minutes after spotting the shorts to come up with the idea of pair them up with a white shirts, looked for a cheap one in HM but those offered didn’t have the fit I had pictured in the my head. So yesterday I got a cheering visit by a friend from Sweden who kindly granted my request of brining me some Swedish candy which you can see in the picture together with the sunshades I bought earlier this week. Either way I and she headed to Ralph Lauren on New Bond Street which was my last resort for shirts since they manufacture shirts of superb quality and with great fit.

On the way there I had eye contact with a very attractive girl who happened to be top model Rosie Huntington! Like a heterosexual man I discretely turned my head a 180 degree turned my head around to check out her out properly, after all you haven’t scooped a girl out properly if you have seen her face and bum. What a sexy fox! Nonetheless distractions in the form of estrogen didn’t derail me from my quest of finding a nice fitting shirt!

At RL I was out of luck since my size is 14½/37 is somewhat rare and very popular, and visiting Selfridges and Harrods didn’t result in me holding a shopping bag with a shirt inside. After that I canceled the quest since there is obviously not a worse way to bore a girl than to let her into to your vain world of walking around London for a few hours looking for a perfect…………..white shirt. So this editorial ended up with an existing RL shirt of mine as a stand in. BTW ignore the flip flops, they’re only used indoors.

Where did you get the shorts? I have a similar complexion and I think those would look good on me as well.

Rococo: I got them at H&M.

Toffe: I probably shouldn't have worn the flip flops since I suspected that it would distort the outfit.

Anonymous: Me gay? I don't swing that way. I'm straight as a ruler.
