ROLLING UP & TUCKING IN

I can’t help but think of my mum whenever I put something on. I’m going somewhere, you’ll get it but you know me, I speak as I think and it usually involves plenty of babbling. Last week, I welcomed you into the inner workings on my mind. It’s too late for you to be that douche who creepily tip-toes outside my house in the early morning.

When you think about what fashion has become now, there’s plenty of “schools of thoughts” and movements. Similarly to how art has always been – think impressionism, surrealism, etc. Although when it comes to fashion, it’s much much more wanky than that and I’m sorry I even mentioned these cultural movements in this sentence, implying some sort of parallel which, obviously, doesn’t exist.

I mean, have a look on YouTube and you’ll find videos explaining you how to half tuck your shirt (and probably some about how to wipe yourself but this is another debate). When I said wanky earlier, I totally include myself in this movement though. I didn’t wait for any videos to help me tuck my shirt in a weird way and you can even see, with this outfit, that I roll up my tailored trousers. Just because I can really.

This is what fashion is about now and I constantly think of my mum because I can hear her asking me what is wrong with me, my half tucked shirt and my rolled up smart trousers. She wouldn’t have time for this though, she’d drop the question and wouldn’t even expect an answer from me. My mum is such a dude, I love her to bits.

The days when looking impeccable was a must are long gone, I barely use my ironing board anymore and am happy to stamp a smug “it’s fashion, you don’t get it” on anyone’s forehead if I catch them commenting on my weird interesting dressing choice.

I’m obviously being sarcastic. I mean, I meant everything I’ve just said but let’s just say that the lousy tone was more of an artistic choice of mine (*smug face*) but babes, just do whatever the hoot you want. Try, experiment, explore, tuck in, tuck out, roll up, roll down, do your own thing! You do you!

IT’S ONLY FUN. And those who take themselves too seriously, slap them in the face, we’ll find a way to let you get away with it at some point.

Mucho love,
