Its been a LONG time since I wrote a blog.
Not blogging since 20th September has made me feel glum, my life has changed lots since then and I am angry with myself for not documenting it as I promised I would do. But not to sit on my blue elephant for too long, I decided today that I am going back to a weekly blog post.
So where do you start when you’ve not blogged for five months? Nosing at my stats of course and see what search terms people are using to find me. Now my ego was sufficiently fed with terms such as “pretty swallow tattoo” and “Frankii Silver” coming up as my main hits – but corr blimey, there was some right random toff in there as well mainly the term “Fred Perry Shirts and Dodgy Quiffs!” That made me chuckle because I LOVE a Fred Perry and Dodgy Quiff.
I remember when I brought my first Fred Perry polo shirt, it was when I was 16 and living in Hastings. I saw some girl in Brighton wearing one and was desperate to get my hands on it (because obviously if I had that shirt I would look -really- cool and my life would get better) so being young and naive I strolled into Debenhams grabbed one of the hanger and took it to the changing rooms unknowing that they cost around £65.00. FUCK THAT for a shirt. Decided a Fred Perry wasnt for me, I could do with being un-cool and not looking like some random bird in Brighton… The next Sunday I went to a Car Bootsale with my mumma and there it was, brand new, with the label, black and white, size M. mens Fred Perry polo for a £5.00 – this is the moment I decided that it was meant to be for me and Mr Perry and I havent looked back since.
I love a good polo shirt, stick with some turn-up jeans, converse and a cardi and you get a really laid back rockabilly day look which looks super cool without trying to hard. A polo shirt on a bigger girl can look awesome I think wearing them tight on big boobs is sexy, I avoid loose ones because they can look like a work uniform!
The man in my life even loves a good Fred Perry (he quite often borrows mine!) when I first met Scott he loved the Golden era suited and booted look but has relaxed what he wears in the last couple of years and he quite often rocks a FP.
Dodgy Quiffs is my usual day hair. I love the Forties and Fifties scene, but without a couple of hours to get ready in the morning I can’t do the hair so usually resort to backcombing and a HUGE quiff with either my hair down or a pony tail. I personally think the bigger the better with a quiff but can quite often find myself looking like a parody from Grease.
Well that broke my fingers in back to it.
I cant wait to getting back to blogging properly.
Catcha soon 😉
