Words by Matt Huxley

First of all. Yes I’m slack. Second of all, happy New Year! Believe it or not this March will mark my second year of existence as Infirm of Purpose. Yeah, you’ve been listening to my crap for that long.  It seems weird that exactly a year ago I was in India. It’s that time of year where every blogger is clamouring about “new year, new me, new plans” and all that crap. Well I’m here to tell you that I’ll be the same cynical wanker as I was last year. Just with hopefully more content. I am aiming to change that and consistently upload.

Let’s see if I stick to that.

To stick with the theme of revolution that seems to permeate every change of year, I’ve decided to put together a little revolution-esque outfit. Complete with layered gloves, because duh. So dystopian. The concept of gloves and gauntlets is something that has always appealed to me. They can toughen up an outfit, make it stand out, make you sweat profusely and enable you to be ready for everything. Heading into the hunger games? Pop on some gloves you be good to go.

On a more down to earth level, I actually layered these gloves together as part of my Halloween outfit (Dracula ftw) and thought it looked cool. The concept of pushing the bangle up high to add an extra dimension is something that also really appeals to me, and I think it’s an idea you’ll be seeing a lot more of over the next few months. #spoilers.

Finally, before I go. What sort of content do YOU want to see? Let me know in the comments below!
