These photos mostly serve to show you my Lazy Oaf greaser dress (£10 in one of their amazing sample sales) which features a pattern of records, bequiffed dogs, hair grease and a PAIR OF SHOES I OWN. That’s right, a pattern of fictitious objects designed to emulate a certain mood actually contained a PHYSICAL ITEM I OWN. I was struggling to find two-tone brogues that were vegan, so I bought a black pair and just painted certain sections white. The result wasn’t particularly neat but I like them anyway.
Recently I’ve been getting really into brogues; they started being fashionable in about 2007 but it’s only since 2011 or so that I’ve liked them (recently in Lailalanguage). I’m mostly influenced by the men in my life; James, Danilo, my Dad and at least half of Quizcats have all been known to rock a brogue. I’ve got massive feet anyway and have been borrowing shoes off my male friends all my life (James and I are exactly the same size). I wish there were more vegan brogues out there! I think in general what I wear is far more influenced by the boys I know rather than the girls – that might sound weird as I wear a lot of skirts and dresses but boys always seem more put together and smart than girls to me, I think there’s less room for error because they have less options. Who influences your style?
