RLX Bag Pt. 1: Now I REALLY Hate Curry
I know it’s pretty normal in the blogosphere for people to show off their FRESH new clothing & apparel but in this post I plan on doing the total opposite. I’m here to show you something not-so-fresh. Actually something that’s pretty wack.
Now Peep The Wack Sh*t:
LOOK AT MY BAG!!!
Man… How wack is THIS photo? It’s an eye sore I tell you. This happened after leaving an all day shoot for my video “The Friends Zone” (which features Shitake Monkey). My homegirl & my former DJ (SynCity¹) & I shared a cab.
I had my black Ralph Lauren RLX duffle bag (which isn’t made anymore) [*not shown] & this RLX knapsack in the color I now call “was white”. My duffle bag contained some of the outfits I wore in the video (from my own closet not a stylists pull ‘n’ borrow) & my knapsack had my MacBook Pro, Sony camera & my external hardrive. I asked the cabbie² to pop the trunk.
- I WAS about to point out that he was Indian just for relevance to the stains you see on my knapsack BUT… I guess you kind of figured that out being that I live NY.
- “Yes” that IS her real hair.
Q: Was that slightly racist of me to point out that the NY cabbie was Indian?
So anyway, he pops the trunk, I didn’t see nor smell anything ‘fishy’ so in goes my bags. Maybe I should’ve concentrated my focus for the scent of curry & not fish. I arrive home in Harlem, hop out of the cab, grab my bags & head upstairs without noticing. The next thing I know, the following morning, I see this. I damn near passed out.
I’m going to try & clean this as Ralph discontinued making these knapsacks as well & I haven’t seen it on eBay since I purchased this. I will update you all on whether or not I restore the original freshness of that which is my Ralph Lauren RLX knapsack. Wish me luck friends! I think I’m going to need it.
- Paloma Perez for pull ‘n’ borrowing some dope Polo pieces of my choice for “The Friends Zone” video shoot. You came thru in a clutch.
- DJ SynCity. You owe me $6 punk!
- Anonymous cab driver for allowing me another topic to add to my blog. Oh & you may potentially owe me about $195… Punk!
Q: Should I refer to the cabbie as “anonymous” if I clearly saw his face but can’t recall his name or plate number?
A: Probably not since he wasn’t necessarily ducking me. It’s my fault… Punk!
Post Script: Just so people won’t find this blog post contradicting – Paloma (the stylist for my video shoot) pulled about 6 different outfits from Polo’s All American & Saturday Evening Post collection per request. I brought about 3 outfits from my own Polo Naval Utility collection. Done!
