This is one of Lambie’s best photos from the other day when he came in the house.
It is a lovely picture, capturing everything – Lambie’s noble profile, his Garbo look whilst incorporating a bottle of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy perfume belonging to Daisy, coincidentally.
In a moment of madness, and possibly gin, I decided to take it further. I mocked up a lovely advertisement, even finding their same font (Engravers Gothic, now you know).
I mean what is not to love? It is perfection.
So I emailed my creation along with a little message to Marc Jacobs’ office explaining that if they were interested in using Lambie that he was very amenable and we could arrange something.
One hour later, I received their reply.
I have to wonder if they even looked at the photo.
(I am also quite depressed that they wrote “inquiry” (in this Shire, it starts with an e), “utilize” (z seriously?) and “modeling” (two l’s please) and their inappropriate, if random, use of an exclamation mark, capital letters and paragraphs – I am seriously tempted to mark their email and send it back to them.
But, on the plus side, they did manage to spell my name correctly which is the first hurdle most folk fall at and I am not perfect.)
Lambie and I take rejection badly.
