So, last night I saw someone wearing the most horrific cardigan I have ever seen in my life. A big grey wooly thing with all sorts of clashing patterns that made my eyes hurt.
The trouble is that things like that are probably really in now. I always see people in ugly clothes wondering around London, and I’m pretty sure everyone there is really cool, and would never accidentally pop on a vile cardigan. It must be to do with the vintage thing. “Oh this old thing? I picked it up in charity shop because I’m really poor. It was just so cold I brought the first thing I saw”. You know, that sort of shit.
What I really don’t understand is how it all caught on. I don’t remember ever picking up a magazine and reading ‘buy the ugliest thing you can find and it’ll make people think that you are AWESOME’.
It makes me feel really self-conscious. I don’t own any jumpers with a giant clowns face on them. I have a few with stripes, and several cardigans, a black one, a grey one and a beige one. These aren’t going to make me many friends in Jaguar Shoes.
Clothes confuse me.
