I do the designing here at Mr Vintage. I’ve been drafted in to do some fashion consulting. I’ll keep it to the point though. This Autumn is soooo all about the alterations. Alterations. alterations. alterations. I can’t stress that enough people. And layers, colourful layers, and please people accessorise. I like what M.I.A has done in the below picture. She’s used her colours well, and that chocolate skin is positively glowing in the club. Well done.
If you need any fashion advice, tips, or just a shopping friend - Don't be afraid to reach out cos I soooo need a shopping bud....BFFs anyone?!?!?! EMAL ME! firstname.lastname@example.org Oh, and add me on facebook! And read about me too!
Chat soon darlings!
Girls and boys have different body parts. Some girls complain that some of their body parts are too big for our t-shirts. They say they’d rather some sort of V-Neck fit. We understand that you want to look your best in your Mr Vintage t-shirt, and we’re looking in to a few different cuts for you anti-conformists out there. While we’re knocking about with the cotton though, here’s a pretty good example of how you ladies might like to sex up your tee. She’s taken a Mens tee and made a few snips here and there.
Pictured here is British born songstress M.I.A at some event. Probably in Hollywood. Someone sent this picture in. We don’t look at that website. It’s not cool.
Sorry about the lack of blogs over recent days/weeks. It’s just that I’ve been busy, and my time management is very poor. I’m sure you all survived. Just thinking what’s new….. Not much to be honest, but I’ll try my best to pour out my inner-most thoughts for you folk. Work has really been turned upside down by the fact that our ‘Coffee Guy’ Lady, the beautiful and lovely Brazilian Carolina, left. Carolina has been bringing us our morning coffees for some time now, well over a year I imagine. And now we have this new lady, and her quality is questionable. Yesterday I asked for an English Breakfast tea. What I received was more like a hot glass of milk. Now, I asked for milk, but just a little bit. I was distraught. It remains to be seen whether I, or for that matter anyone from work, will ever trust her with the responsibility of our morning beverage. Change sucks. Sometimes.
Chris Brown beat Rihanna. We’ve all heard about it. It’s crazy. What a dick. Don't beat Rihanna. I’ve always though he was a dick anyway. With his stupid dance moves, girly voice and the pathetic whispy hairs that hang from his chin. Joe’s the only one at work that likes his music, but then again, maybe Joe’s the only one listening to the 13 yr old girl inside him. That’s probably it.
What's the bet Rihanna milks it though and makes a No.1 heart felt song about heart-break and being abused. Fair enough I guess though. We’ve been hitting a few movies as well. Slumdog Millionaire, MILK, and The Wrestler. Slumdog was quality. Rob gave me heaps of crap cos I went to Milk with two of my mates and we all enjoyed a tasty Red Wine. Oooh, Rob, you’re such a real man with your girlfriend and your Corona. Meh. Peace.
Well the long weekend is over, and while our fishing excursion on Friday was awesome, it couldn’t really be classified as a success. Rob managed to catch one Kahawai (apparently that’s how you spell it, I google searched it). Unfortunately we didn't get any photographic evidence of the fish being caught, nor did we get to enjoy it in food form. Slippery little bugger slipped off the back of the boat innit. But the trip was all good nonetheless, we all had a dip in the open ocean – even Andy was persuaded to get in there. Although he didn’t last too long. Afterwards we got some fish n chips and ate them at this really neat little park. That made up for our lack of success in hunting and gathering. The trip there was fun too, we listened to heaps of these Ricky Gervais podcasts. They’re hilarious. I suggest you check them out when you’ve finished all your work and want to take a load off. Check out some of the videos starring Karl Pilkington, possibly one of the smartest men in the world. Possibly.
This morning we all came to work as usual, but were greeted with some rather alarming news…. Rob’s home sick today with his head in the toilet after some dodgy Chilli Calamari, and we’re to hold the fort! And while our thoughts and prayers are with Rob, it does give us a chance to watch a little bit of YouTube without his piercing eyes lookin on us all evil like. He might just read this blog. We don't care though, we do whatever we want.
Whilst doing whatever we want, we uncovered some gems today. The best being this dude ‘Chi-City’. His videos are hilarious; his parking ticket story is especially mind-blowing. Anyway, check it out for yourself. I’m sure you’ll all find it very amusing. Don’t check it out if you’re a little kid though, some of the language aint so becoming mang.
Well the Freakin weekend is over, and after having substantial amounts of fun, we're back to work! Rob attended popular youth event 'SummerDays' (I'm not really sure if it has some zaney spelling that youths use, it probably includes some Z's or something hip like that). He said it was a cracker, but he's certainly showing the after-effects today. As for me (jay), I went to work on building my Hip-Hop image and attitude by attending the show of a highly regarded rapper 'Atmosphere'. Now, not being rascist, but I expected a Brown African-American man (not sure of the slang word for that) to be rapping infront of me. Instead I was greeted by a white man with blonde hair and a blonde beard. He was good. But it was a surprise. They were the most exciting parts from the weekend anyway.
Tomorrow we're heading out to Manukau to have our annual Strategic Planning meeting. It's always a pretty exciting time; we talk about what we want to do over the next year, and do a few brainstorms that have words with clouds around them and stuff. This time we're having the meeting out in Manukau at the Pacific Centre (it's that thing that looks like an upside down waka). We get to have lunch there. Sweet.
