I have a question for you; Have you ever seen a fashionable person smile?
The answer is no.
But why is this? What is making these magnificent creatures troubled?
There are many reasons why fashionable people don't smile, I'll break some down for you.
You're walking past doing shit and you see a boy decked top to toe in black. He's wearing about 5 layers of what looks like bed linen pinned to his lank figure and he's wearing an expression that looks like he's contemplating murder. Why is he so miserable? What could have possibly happened to him that made him look so sour?
1. He's poor as shit
This guy couldn't even smile if he tried, he just spent £400 of a pair of Raf Simmons shoes, he's not going to be able to eat or pay rent for a good few months. I know I'd be sad if that happened to me.
|Your priorities are in the wrong place my dear|
2.You're hurting his eyes
Having to look at clothes that aren't from brands that demand 3 figures for t-shirts is exhausting, irritating and painful on the eyes. If only he could be surrounded by 50 other people wearing an outfit that costs as much as a deposit on a flat maybe a smile would crack across his jaded face.
It's a lonely fashion life.
3. He's not the only sad one
If you happened to come across somebody in the street with a massive smile across their face, you'd probably wonder who they just murdered. These fashion people have chronic bitch-face syndrome just like you, but because of their flashing dressing, you're more likely to pay attention to them and notice their stroppy faces. He's happy on the inside.
4. He's bored
There are 4 staff bundled together talking about yesterdays party and you feel like walking into their shop is intruding on their conversation.
How dare you interrupt you pleb!!
It's a hard life working in "Dat Boutique Wot Noone Has Herd Ov" (you know the place right? no of course you don't). His 5 day weeks with long hours on his feet and few customers make days slow and dull and his only solace are his co-workers. Yes they look like scary pack animals whose clothes cost more than 6 months worth of rent but the truth is they're just bloody bored of standing there.
5. Not everyone appreciates his sense of style.
Some people just can't keep their opinions to themselves. Our poor little noodle-haired hero has a hard time from some of the shitty guys in his neighbourhood.
It's hard being fabulous so give him a break. He can take solace in the fact that in 3 years time, those dumb shits will be wearing the exact same clothes as he is now and he can laugh at how sheep-minded and out of date they are.
So there we have it, the mystery that is the scary fashion boy hopefully debunked for you.
I swear I only blogged like last week but I turn around and it's actually been like 6 months, I can't believe it!I'm in a busy period of my life at the moment, it's my final year at university, I now have a job and the website I'm working for Stylehoney is about to be released so I don't have much time to sit down and blog for long periods of time so forgive me I am STILL ALIVE!
I am more active on other social media-y things particularly twitter and tumblr so please follow me there~
