Walking through Zhongshan Park the other day, I noticed this couple. They were trying so hard to look edgy, his jeans alone were a fashion statement and a half, but there they were, under the cherry blossoms, snapping each other in various sweetheart poses. Nothing like dressing for a late night KTV session, in your killer platform spike heeled boots, wig, and hot pink leggings perfectly matched to your boyfriend’s hot pink satin boots, and then unexpectedly detouring for a nice nature walk instead.
Like all tough streetsmart Shanghainese men he was holding her handbag and coat for her too. Sweet.
