Halloween and the start of Movember - a funny time of year which leaves me overwhelmed by confusion to say the least.
Yestereve, casually boy cruising, I remained completely baffled as to whether there was a new shit hot look or just loadsa resourceful costumes. Yes. I generally have a hard time deciphering the fine line between Hackney or Halloween. It’s a thin line. A rexy line.
The other day on the bus I was eavesdropping on a convo which, in all seriousness, went like this:
“[something something], but I can’t tell whether he is really fit or a bit special needs.”
Which made me think that maybe their gene pool needed a dash of chlorine.
Anywho. I eat my words. Cos on reflection I have, on more than one occasion, thought out lout “he’s either totes lush or a bit homeless”.
And tbh I’m still in two minds as to whether a certain ex was really a troubled musician or actually just a tramp who was using me for a roof over his head and hot meal a few nights a week. (I have on occasions been told by mates that it’s DEFO the latter).
And then there’s the guy with all the bags who I thought was a tramp but then once saw outside Kingsland Road studios sitting on a step reading Vogue (true story). Is this how Hackney tramps roll nowadays? Or is this kid actually just trialling bonkers Galliano’s A/W 11 Homeless Chic (again, true story)...
Either way I remain confused.
(I don’t mind. It’s a good look. Gives me dimples.)
On a loosely relate note HAPPY MOVEMBER!!!
