… too Elvis?
“Well, it’s one for the money, Two for the show, Three to get ready, Now go, cat, go.
But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes. You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.
Well, you can knock me down, Step in my face, Slander my name all over the place.
Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh, Honey, lay off of my shoes…”
So Sunday, as is our frequent routine, my beloved Martin and I did a quick “off-price shopping” run. Coming from Europe, off-price shopping (think Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx or Marshalls) is still a new experience for him. Anyway, yesterday I was apparently in a “blue” mood. Thanks to a combination of a rewards certificate, a “birthday” coupon and fortuitous placement on the clearance racks, I came home from DSW with the blue suede bucks above for a song. They are definitely more of a “Fall” style, given their deep navy color but I think they will look cute as hell with jeans…
I also scored the navy and white striped American Eagle “undies” at like 25% of the regular retail price. Believe it or not, as a gay guy, I am a bit late to the game in the whole fancy, sexy undies department – and, as a man that needs an XL (for the waist and nothing else, LOL!) , I am always ecstatic to discover big boy panties on the racks. No kidding – see how my boxer briefs say “American Eagle” around the waistband? My Sweetie’s say “LE (eagle logo) AMERI” around the waist!
The socks in the pic are from a previous shopping excursion but I thought the image needed a third “something” – it was just a pair of underwear and a pair of shoes – two pairs, if you will. Good in poker, bad in photos.
So yesterday was a “blue” day for me. I hope my shoes don’t/won’t look silly on my feet but, even if they do, they make me happy when I look at them so who cares? They are kinda’ unexpected for me, I suppose, but I am tired of being so “normal” and “expected.” I guess maybe ladies have known all along the power of a fun pair of shoes…
