Mentholyptus Puffa Jacket

Back with a BOOM! It's been a little over 'a little while' but here's a little something to nibble on.
Contrasting proportions: SWEET. Electric Blue: SWEET. Vivienne Westwood Kicks: NUTRASWEET. This jacket reminds me of a particular taunt that I suffered at school. My Granny lovingly took me out shopping one year to buy a jacket for my birthday (or was it Christmas, I don't quite recall). so, on the budget of an old age pensioner we headed to Mr Byrite, the only store that would cater for our level of affordability at that time. Being 12 years old and having already adopted an eye for 'a look' I was keen to get in on the Puffa Jacket movement that semed to be emerging among the older kids at school. Long story short, I ended up with a 'flat' not so puffy PUFFA jacket of the 'non branded' variety. The type which, so unfortunately, resembled the one worn by the asian proprietor of the grotty little pennysweet shop outside school. His was blatantly a freebie from his suppliers which made things worse. His bore the trademarked logo of Halls, the manufacturer of mentholyptus throat sweets. Mine did not. Yet, it was instantly tagged 'The Mentholyptus Puffa'. Thanks guys. Never forget you.

Hey man, thanks for your kind words. i hope that the rest of your night was pleasant.

I had a look through your blog -there were some interesting and not so interesting looking people on it. (It’s bad that I’ve said that, they may be interesting)

I suppose that’s the reason that i didn't wanna be photographed. coz I didn't want a prick like myself to come along and judge me based on my clothes hahahaha.

I think if you feel that what you do is important then stick with it especially if u get enjoyment from it.

I MYSELF don't really find it too important to admire self imagery.
And if you see the type of people that come into the shop where i work you would see that their so called "style" was fueled by insecurities

Anways i don't know much about fashion. If you wanna know anything about animation then i'm your man
