OK, OK, OK, so I'm always a bit late to jump on the bandwagon (or have things moved on so far now, I'm actually cool again? like how Jack eventually went so gay he became a lesbian?), but I had a go at styling myself up all geek-chic. The result, I think, is pretty much Facehunter-esque (cringe), but I'm still liking it... I wore my classic pale blue Marc Jacobs shorts, which are sadly developing a very worrying hole that I will need to get seen to, with a short-sleeved Alexander McQueen shirt. I love this shirt because it is practical, stylish, and actually one of the few things from his collections that I could have seen Lee wearing himself - considering he mostly dressed like this. The button-down collar ads to the preppy look (btw, I recommend checking out Igor+André's painting of McQueen which featured on the front cover of the Sunday Times Style - go bloggers!). I accessorised with an Eva London Oxford graduation ring (designed by my dearest friend and sworn enemy, Anna Jewsbury), a vibrant green organza Issey Miyake bow-tie to match the emerald (and my eyes), and to top it all off, some cheapo geeked-out tortoise-shell glasses from Topman.
What else does any intelligent gent need? Of course, a textbook on Quantum Mechanics (the classic by Cohen-Tannoudji et al.) and a pretty-in-pink pencil.
Wow, there was a lot of linking today...
