At what age are you supposed to stop wearing sweatshirts with cartoon characters on them? It’s the question I asked myself when I placed an online order for this Minnie and Mickey sweatshirt.
I’m generally all for the “freedom of wear” but I have to admit that a Mickey or Hello Kitty t-shirt doesn’t do much for your credibility in situations that require formal dress (such as job interviews, asking for a raise, meeting with your lawyer : just try, and see how the person accross the desk reacts).
When I started my blog (if you’re up for a good laugh, just browse through my archives), I was naturally drawn to anything Kawaii or childish; but I sobered up and now aim for a more “adult” look.
But seeing that sweatshirt, I couldn’t help but want to wear it: it’s regressive…but off-beat. It’s simple, I like it when Mickey shows his weaknesses: anry, tired, mad, jealous … I like him best when he parts from his perfect ways.
That being said, I still don’t know if there’s an age restriction for Mickey-wear: I’d say that as long as you feel good in it and don’t feel like you’re playing dress up, all is possible. So, are you ready for the Mickey Mouse Club auditions too? (English translation by Bleu Marine)
