I’ve tried taking a picture of my new haircut but it’s not really showing in the picture, mainly because the hair is flat on my head. It’s not too dramatic anyway, and I might even get rid of it soon, I’m not sure yet. It does look a bit more ridiculous in real life, but here are the pictures anyway.
On Thursday it’s Valentine’s Day, or so I’m led to believe, and on Valentine’s Day at lunchtime I’m walking around Covent Garden and I come across this jacket in the window of Hugo Boss. Please note the overall preppiness and general perfectness, particularly focusing around the crest stitching on the left breast pocket. Now look up and see the title of this blog. I need this.
Please try to ignore the fact that they have paired it up with a thin zip-up hoodie that completely destroys the poor jacket, and don’t worry, if I had this I wouldn’t not ruin it like that.
And this jacket breaks my heart a little because I want to have it, so I go in to check the price and the price is unfortunately £350, which I’m not willing to hand over to Hugo at this point in time. I’m saving to go to Australia after all.
Later I go to the gym where I meet Scott and this is where I give him his Valentine’s present. I’ve hinted about the Valentine’s present before on here, but I couldn’t tell exactly what it was – well I guess I can now.
I got us both silver rings and they have our initials engraved on them (on the outside) and we are meant to wear them not on our fingers, but on chains around our necks. And I’ll be wearing the ring with Scott’s initials, which are _ _ _ _ and Scott will be wearing the ring with my initials, which are _ _ _ _. Then when I’m off to Australia I will demand my ring back thank you very much – my initials are better anyway, I spent months choosing my names and putting them together.
Anyway, back to me now and here are three pictures with different chain options of how I could wear my ring. We have:
1) Very thin long chain. I kinda like this because it’s very thin and it looks almost like the ring is hanging there on its own.
2) Very thick short chain. I like this a lot because it makes me look like a thug, which is my second favourite look after preppy.
3) Medium sized chain from Gucci army tag. I don’t like this chain because it’s kinda crap and it doesn’t go with this.
Anyway, let me know what you think, even though I’m quite sure you won’t like any of them and at the end of the day I’ll still do what I likes, cause I always like to make ridiculous choices.
Finally, on my way back home I’m on the tube and this girl (mid-20s, black, holding the biggest Valentine’s bouquet of red roses I’ve seen all day) walks up to me and says, excuse me, that’s a very nice bag, and I say oh, thank you. And this makes my day more than I care to admit and right now I’m feeling great about having spent £930 on this navy Ralph Lauren holdall with brown leather handles and strap three weeks ago.
