Earlier this week, while on a shopping romp with Dove, we took me to Valiant because she heard there was new yummy there. Before I bought anything, I decided to search my inventory, just in case…and realized that not only had I bought several items there, I had never even worn one of them…ever. The first step is admitting that you have a problem….but instead, I decided to just wear and blog some of them - phew, that was close!!
I chose the Black Military Blazer to break my Valiant cherry and I don’t regret a thing. First of all, everyone knows girls love guys in uniforms, so that’s a plus. It's black like the night, and full of prim attachments, which is more bang for your buck (Redgrave, please take note). It comes in two sizes, with prim cuffs, collar, pockets and shoulder pins. Although I love the white cuffs, personally, I think it was the shiny buttons that won me over - what can I say, I'm a simple man with simple tastes. The details on the jacket are quite nice, and it didn’t take much wrestling with the prims to make everything fit great.
Armidi got off my shite list by finally releasing some more boy's clothes…but don’t think I didn’t notice they made tons more for the girls again, like they needed it! Anyways, I love'em in RL so I grabbed their Low Rise Chinos (in black, in case you wondered). The pictures don’t really do the detail justice, so you have to take my word for it….*flashes a used car salesman smile*…they come with cool bunched up prim leg bottoms and they are actually blacker than my soul!! I wasn’t even sure that was possible until this moment. Topping my crown is the Reznor Hair from Sinistyle - I liked it enough to buy it in a few colors…I have to thank my man crush on Trent Reznor for that purchase, just wearing it makes me feel Closer to him…get it? see NIN has this song?? It’s the best love song ever, google the lyrics and sing it to your significant other.
In order to head off the “originality lynch squad” roaming the grid these days, I just wanted to give props to Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Dracula for inspiring me to mix black with black when I'm getting dressed…I'd also like to thank the cast of the movie Hoosiers for inspiration to wear Chuck Taylor knockoffs on my feet!! I sincerely hope I haven’t missed anyone because Lord knows I care, I really really do!!
