|Shirt: J.Crew, Garnet Flame, Pants: UniQlo, Boots: Steve Madden, Intyce, Necklace: F21.|
So, this shirt. Not only is it cute, it has the best name. Garnet Flame. There needs to be a science fiction battle-droid comic called Garnet Flame, you know what I mean?! The main character would be ace pilot Lieutenant Garnet - tall, handsome, hates it when people make fun of his name, obviously... He'd be part of the Earth's defence against invading aliens, naturally - only he'd discover that the aliens aren't that different from us humans - they're just all green. So he'd be all torn and angsty, and when he wasn't flying dangerous missions with his crack team of pilots (who would all be awesome, just not quiiite as awesome as him), he'd be trying to convince Military High Command to broker a peace treaty with the aliens. Ahem.*
Anyway, this shirt... I fell in love with it, I waited for sale. It hit sale, I dawdled, it sold out. I didn't exactly cry, but I may have kicked something. Cussed because I stubbed my toe. Then remembered a little something called Ebay. And there it was! My shirt! And it didn't even cost more than I'd have paid if I had got it on sale. So how could I not get it, right? It was waiting for me to rescue it! Ahem.
This shirt is also another one of the things sweet, lovely Jenni agreed to send to England for me, along with this jacket. Thanks again, Jenni, you are the bestest! I've worn it several times since I got it, but never blogged it, so today I ran out with out camera and took a few snaps. Yeah that's right, for once I am actually blogging an outfit on the same day I wore it! Damn, that feels almost... professional blogger level. Yeah. I'm blogging like a boss today!
*Yes, I just made that all up. In my defence, Victor and I have been revisiting our childhoods by watching Macross in the original language. But, if you think maybe I need to read less comics or something, you might not be too far off...
