Oh Boy, Oi Polloi


For me, one of the joys of being a lass is comfortably wandering into the men's section of a store and being able to purchase something in sizes ranging from xxs to l with no qualms. I think it is a bit of a luxury to be able to wear men's clothing so freely... not that men cannot wear women's clothing, but I imagine the fit must be harder, at the very least. I quite like men's clothing, especially in terms of basics, sweaters, cardigans and the like, which is why I squealed in delight when I stumbled across Oi Polloi, an online boutique "for men" -- which just translates to online boutique of "oversized wonderfulness for me." I feel a bit bad stealing from the boys, when it's hard for them to do the same, but with goods like these, it's hard not to.

This collections is so pleasing; I'm in love with it! I've never heard of it before so thank you for sharing (I'll probably be reblogging this in the near future!).

I, too, find the joy of being able to slip into any size of men's clothes when it's quite difficult to do the same for any piece of women's clothing!

I should have known when I immediately wanted that striped tee that it would be St. James. Oh St. James, how your perfect striped tops haunt me!!

Oh, and I swear I will be sending you an email about cameras post haste, this week has been a rough one but it'll all (temporarily) be over tomorrow...
