Band of Outsiders: Boy

How many of you have longingly looked at men's clothing? How many of you wear it anyway? How many of you have shelled out extra money to downsize fabulous boys clothes that you couldn't live without? Don't you wish you could just throw it on (off the rack) and go? Look no further for Band of Outsiders has answered our shrill call for sharp, masculine tailoring fit for the female form. Boy, their Spring/Summer '08 collection, has many of my dream boy's basic clothes. This is especially exciting since I recently went to Target and found that all the skinny boys got to the David Bowie collection before me. (Those skinny black jeans with the lightning bolts on the back pockets would have totally fit me!) But since I am the type of person who struggles with clean cut looks, that bedraggled rocker thing would most definitly be intact. This means little boy blazer + ripped and patched jeans, tailored button up + tank top with frayed edges. Of course fabric scrap neck adornments are also required. And as usual, boots are a given. Lately I've taken to wearing anything I can whipe my hands on when wayward coffee drips ensue. Oh, whats a dirty hippie at heart to do?

Longingly looking at men’s clothing?
Raising my hand.
Wear it anyway?
Raising my hand.
Downsizing it
Raising my hand.
And yes, I can wear Dior Homme jeans off the rack.

I really like how this collection looks. Especially love how the model looks like an mini Emmanuelle Alt.

And, i've tagged you with the Thinking Blogger Award. See my blog for details.

Did you see the Nylon article on this? I fell in love with the shorts/three-quarter-sleeve blazer/vest suit.

And what is this about David Bowie for Target?!?!?

i love the Boy collection, even though its so hard to find! Still, i love nosing round the mens sections of any shop, i love the deep colours and sharp lines. This also extends to little boy's + girls clothing areas, where sometimes i usually spot great quirky pieces to tie in with my normal stuff!
So, if i don't sound enough like Micheal Jackson, its fun finding fashion where you shouldnt :)
