I have one self-imposed clothing rule that I do not break: never wear beige, camel, cream or any of their variants above the waist. As a pale-skinned white guy, I’ve always believed that the aforementioned do nothing good for my colouring – I’m washed out enough as it is. But last week I was hanging around at Black Box Boutique in Grey Lynn (as I’m wont to do), and Jae Mills asked me to chuck on one of Stolen Girlfriends Club’s angora Arty Cardis in winter white so that he could shoot it for the store’s Facebook page. Afterwards, I didn’t want to take it off. The angora was soft like cashmere, the fit was perfect and the colour, while hard to wear, was very pretty. So I stole it. As you’ll see below, I think it gives my skin a bit of a pinky/purple hue, but hey, at least it goes with the hydrangea.

I LIKE YOU!
