A Visual Wolf Whistle Moment

The title is an ode to Deex's over at Pistol Whipped's most recent post, and I thought "visual wolf whistle" was the perfect way to sum up that instant "ohmygoshthatoutfit" moment that we all experience every now and then.


I just had this wolf whistle moment, but it wasn't at a gig or on the bus as usual, it was on the net, which really dilutes the great moment that it usuallly creates (is it only my system that creates adrenalin when a perfect outfit rocks down the street? it's like i'm excited on the person's behalf for putting together something so genius.)

but I digress.

For this momentary girl crush was Lena Headey, a brit actor (yes, I had to look her up..) with a not so great resume, but what do I care.

Take a look at this. Well, I fear that I have over-hyped the moment, but really I wanted to put more emphasis on the wolf whistle moment rather than her outfit. Instantly assuming the tee was Urban Outfitters (she just has that look) I found it on the online store (on both sides of the atlantic).

This look is very easy and perfect for a day when you fancy hitting the snooze button on your alarm. Roll out of bed with 20 minutes to leave, skip washing your hair and pull this gear on with a squirt of your fragrance du jour. Of course, the just "got out of bed look" doesn't excuse sleep breath or dribble mouth. Whoa there, don't be forgetting etiquette.

Her style reminds me of a friend back home. I hate it when ppl with the hip just-got-out-of-bed look have the breathe as well. You are right. We must not forget etiquette!

Haha! I've never heard the term wolf whistle, but I totally understand what you're getting at. I love the t-shirt, and have the feeling it may be mine very soon!
