Wang Wannabe...

I stumbled across this awesome image of a lovely lanky model rocking Alexander Wang and immediately realised I had a pair of shorts strikingly similar hanging in my wardrobe...

I came across them at my local Salvo's about three years ago and loved the whole slouchy, shredded, faded thing they had going on. (Yep, no DIY here people, bought 'em exactly like that). In fact they get more slouchy/shredded/faded everytime they go through the wash - gotta love that....

Excited at the idea I had something that looked like Alexander Wang's (let's face it, its as close as I'm going to get to his stuff) I decided to have a bash at the whole look, with my own twist. It served well for a Saturday morning outfit of running around doing errands before heading to the studio to train (again) for my up-coming pole comp - its seems its all I do these days....



This tee tickles me - "If you can read this then you don't need glasses. Unless you're already wearing them, then you really need them after all" Perfect example of the random English you find printed on things in China Town.

That tee is pure hilarity!

You are rocking the wang look so perfectly. I am jealous of your already slouchy faded hot shorts.
The blazer also equals love and hooray hooray for nerd glasses how I love them. I'm not going to lie, I love it all.

Great wang style photos too sir!

I feel like I have been far too gushy in this comment, so I will say something completely random to counteract this. Bucket.
