Hipsters can’t be defined because then they’d fit in a category, and thus be too mainstream.- Urban Dictionary
What is a hipster? I have been called a hipster-wanna-be due to my penchant for indie bands, love for beanies and my perhaps slightly holier-than-thou, know-it-all attitude. (gimme a break guys, I’m an INTJ :D)
The fact that I’m working in the media/writing industry probably contributes to that image as well.
I don’t mind being called one, because isn’t that what people like to do? It’s so hard to ‘categorise’ someone because we all have different traits and beliefs, so to make it simple, we lump everyone who ‘conforms’ to this image into the same category, so that we can have the illusion of ‘understanding’ them better.
I’m digressing again.
I was at Pavilion KL and was going to the parking lot when a corner shop caught my eye (due to a large display of a cat wearing black-rimmed glasses) (which is, I am told, a purveyor of hipster. I just wear them because I’m nearly half-blind, lol.)
IT. WAS. HEAVEN.
I couldn’t take photos because the sales guy was eyeing me like a hawk out of the corner of his eye, and I’m pretty sure photography of items wasn’t allowed. The place was a hipster dream, with arts and crafts, and glorious NOTEBOOKS WITH AWESOME COVERS everywhere. I would have bought the entire store, but I only had so much in my wallet, lol. I’m going back there again if I’m in Pavilion KL. The shop is called TYPO, and it’s a subsidiary of Cotton On.
Notebooks (RM17.50 each). There were actually many cat ones that I wanted to get, but budget.
Steel Nomad tumbler (RM50) with kitties. Who can resist!? The printout can be removed and for those more creative ones out there, you can showcase your own artwork on the tumbler.
RM6 (which goes to charity, apparently) evil-fox print recycling bag.
Other stuff I got from my cocktail evening assignment: customised souvenirs!
Leather coin pouch with customised name. 😀 Much doge, so wow
