What He Wore: Stripes

James wore this amazingly fabulous blazer on Christmas to the get-together with my side. (These pictures aren't from Christmas though.) It is a ladies blazer from the 1960s- aren't the colors great? The jeans were thrifted and decorated by Beatrice with crayon. The shoes are 60s era Hi Brows- very patriotic.

James isn't really the What He Wore type; He even blogged about it on his tumblr. I'm unsure, as usual, whether that semi-colon ought to be a full-on colon. Can never remember that rule! (internetting interlude)Turns out it should be a full-on colon, but I'm not going to change it. Instead, I shall now share rule 4, brought to us by Mr. Google: 

Rule 4

Use a colon instead of a semicolon between two sentences when the second sentence explains or illustrates the first sentence and no coordinating conjunction is being used to connect the sentences. If only one sentence follows the colon, do not capitalize the first word of the new sentence. If two or more sentences follow the colon, capitalize the first word of each sentence following.
I enjoy reading: novels by Kurt Vonnegut are among my favorites.
Garlic is used in Italian cooking: It greatly enhances the flavor of pasta dishes. It also enhances the flavor of eggplant.

So, I should have said:
James isn't really the What He Wore type: he even blogged about it on his tumblr.

Is that how you interpret the rule??
