For all those under this impression: you are 100% right.
And for those who don't believe us, what more evidence do you need than this?
So as a gesture of charity to the scores of fans who look to us for guidance and advice, we've collated the ultimate dating how-to, to help you stop repelling.. and start propelling!
Please note, our wealth of knowledge on this subject matter has required us to divide the learning into three fun-filled segments.
Your first lesson of the day is to...
1. Get yourself a statement piece.
What better way to make an entrance than by arming yourself with a trademark accessory. After all,the more you resemble a mental patient, the better.
Should you, like us, wish to subscribe to this theory, we nominate the following four as the leaders of our tribe.
|Catherine Baba and her turban||Anna Piaggi and her |
Babar the elephant and his gold crown (whose look was copied by Kate Waterhouse in a previous post)
|Peter Rabbit wears his little blue jacket for a thumping good time.|
And in saving the best for last, behold: Iris Apfel - also known as our favourite person in the whole wide world.
She is killing it harder than anyone else attempting to adopt black-rimmed spectacles as their trademark, because hers are the biggest and roundest of them all, and because of this, she wins at life.
Iris's mantra - that "as long as you get a rise out of somebody, and you get a response, then you've done something positive" is like oxygen to our veins.
In case you're wondering about how we adopt this strategy, you may remember a phase in which we took preference in wearing a turban.
Fun though it was, its prevalence amongst Sydney's fashion set led us even further from these roots.
With Iris's mantra in mind, this is a look bound to make an impact on our next encounter with a man friend.
While most certainly ensuring a rise and response from our man-dates, it may just not be rise or response we were after.
