#869 Who wears short shorts?



I wear short shorts! Kate Sylvester was kind enough to gift them to me last week and I've been waiting for any opportunity to wear them out. I'm obsessed. It's been a bit cold so far but I braved the 8 degrees here in Diamond Harbour this morning to take the picture. Come to think of it, every item I'm wearing was a gift. Dad's sweater (not so much a gift as a take), Pantharella socks courtesy of Crane Brothers and birthday Chucks from my flatmates. Thank you to all my benevolent benefactors.

I LIKE YOU!

Are they the Gordon shorts? I love those shorts. Made boyfriend try them on in the weekend. They are awesome but he won't let me buy them for him as they are $255. Plus he probably doesn't like being treated like a dress-up doll. Damn. I love the button. Plus the elastic at the back. Plus the length. I heart them a lot. I am glad someone gets to have them.

Yes! I love the crown button too.

Buy them for him! Tell him he's lucky to be your dress-up doll.

These look like the kind of shoes that a man of your tastes would particularly like to wear. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_lpFvUD9O3hQ/Ssc0152x1jI/AAAAAAAAHiU/cEmFrytzFhM/s800/cdg-play-converse-chuck-taylor-front.jpg

I've already put my order in for the cream high tops.

And I blogged about them last time I was in Christchurch: http://www.isaaclikes.com/2009/08/700-comme-play-shoes-my-buzz.html

damn right. it's almost like they've taken your two favorite things and mashed them together. For me I'd probably end up with some kind of chicken flavored beer.

Oh. Before the picture loaded I was having visions of you wearing something Bruno-esque. Thank god.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Brave move for chch, I sometimes get threatened due to my penchant for short shorts here.

Don't worry Rob, I only wore them in the privacy of my own home, and even then I had to run inside to avoid the large mob brandishing pickforks and fire.

I heart short shorts! I like how all the chain stores (with the exception of Hallensteins) are carrying them this year. I got a great pair from jayjays! Wtf?! I know. Probs won't last long, but meh - worth it for 30 bucks. Cotton on are doing good denim ones. Its a bit of a shock to see them being relatively fashion forward! (not that short shorts have been in fashion for the past god-knows-how-many years).

AM GETTING THEM! For his birthday. I just had this mare where I rang KS and the girl was all 'we've sold out in speckle' and I was all 'AAAAARGH' and she was all 'what about this colour?' and I was too stressed out to decide and I had to ring Area 51 but then I rang the wrong one, then had to find the right number and then called it and put them on hold.

Hmm. That wasn't such a good story after all.
