Got Wood?

I know what you are thinking, and I regret to inform you that it is true. Yes, I have shed my flamboyant, colourful, too-gay-to-function personality and gone back to the roots of masculinity and biological purpose: to chop god-damn wood.

Wheels & Dollbaby shirt
Sass and Bide Jeans
Nathan Smith shirt
Leather jacket from a random Asian store
Doc Marten boots
Ralph Lauren bag
Giles and Brothers leather bracelet
Gone are the days of spending hours in a shopping mall looking at clothes, drinking our decaf soy lattes. Now I spend my time living in a cabin, probably made out of wood, in the middle of the woods, chopping, well you guessed it, more wood. It's like this beautiful harmonious cycle of a lumberjack.


Heh who am I kidding? Me? Chopping wood? Unless I'm chopping a Chloe tree with maybe a Prada axe? But why is the flannel shirt such a masculine piece of clothing? I wore it and all my friends were like, "Flannel? Really?" like it's now a fashion crime for me because I lack the testosterone. Am I really exiled into a flannel-less world? To be honest, I thought I looked quite heterosexual. No one else did. In fact, they laughed when I said that. I don't blame them, you can see in the background of these photos I actually shopped at Pitt St Mall until it closed.

But seriously why is Wheels and Dollbaby, an Australian brand known for their feminine pin-up doll clothing making masculine flannel shirts? I mean designers spend lots of resources moulding their brand into a particular image. Maybe they were targetting the male demographic that want to appease their inner woman by going one step closer to wearing a skimpy tight dress.

I can just see it now.


If you haven't died from all the faggotry from this post I thought I would try and inject more masculinity in this post. Because Lola obviously is more of a man than I'll ever be. It's like that Freaky Friday movie. We are stuck in each others' bodies.

  6. I don't know - you look like a trendy lumberjack...the skull & crossbones on the back of your flano alerts me to the fact that you're not a "real lubmerjack" though.

  8. Hehe, you are the most dapper woodchopper! I love the print of your flannel - it's actually perfect without looking anything garish. But I'm in absolute love with your bracelet! It's so quirky! Who says lumberjacks can't drink decaf soy lattes?! They need that velvet richness after a long day of catching splinters! Your pin-up doll made me absolutely crack up - oh, we just need more people like you to brighten up the world. Lola looks so snug with her coat! :)
