If you walked past a dry-cleaners and saw a t-shirt from Madonna's after show party hanging up in the window, would the thought of pretending to be the owner ever cross your mind...?
Madonna of course sang about living in a material world, not a criminal world - but if only she’d known about the onset of limited edition t-shirts, she may well have altered her lyrics. How does one manage to stay ahead in the office fashion stakes, when the coolest t-shirt du jour in the office is something you can’t bloody well buy?
In a crisis of conscience, there I was on the way to work when I passed a dry-cleaners near the office and spotted Madonna’s aftershow t-shirt from the other night (Mr.G gave them out to special guests) in the window (we’ll return to the fact about the weirdness of a dry-cleaners exhibiting their dirty garments in the window later…). All it would have taken was a word to the signora about how I’d been sent from Dolce & Gabbana (magic words in these parts) to collect the t-shirt and the coveted prize would be mine.
Needless to say my overdraft got the better of me – and I decided that it was better to try faking it rather than run the risk of being booted out of DG land and cheered myself up with a bit of office improvised 'voguing' with my telephone headset instead.
