A few weeks ago I ran across some (old)?! photos of me wearing my hair like this in Tokyo about 25 years ago and was obviously hitnotized. At the outset of my inspiration walk yesterday morning I suddenly found myself making a detour into the salon. Thankfully, Angel received me with open arms. (He's my colourist.)
The artworks engulfing me are all fairly recent.
For a change I belted my tunic and wore high knee socks over my jeggings. From a distance it looks like I'm wearing tall boots. I call this look "irritating chic." When I walk down the street in this, swinging my flirty little candy heart, I think, "Ohayou, genki desu-ka? (Mornin' y'all, how are ya? in Japanese) Mwah, mwah, mwah (Kiss, kiss, kiss, in Vapidese, I'm fluent.)" Let's all send Miss Simmonds some good vibes so she can go to Japan too!
Details of this outfit:
- stretchy wool-blend black tunic, Metallicus sample sale
- riding-pant jeggings, retail (suedine inset runs down inner leg)
- knee socks, retail
- brown crackle-leather Miu Miu boots, laces with side zips, thrifted, Wildlife Thrift Store
- belt, purchased in Kunming, China, mid-80s
This weekend bandmate Sandra and I will be working on visuals for our "travesty-of-music" video. We call ourselves Just Bad Enough. Listening to the latest mix, I think we should be called Smut Mouth. If I'm brave I'll post the clip. Trust me, we're more than just bad enough!
I hope you'll all be doing something fabulous this weekend, and looking good doing it!! Three cheers for NO RULES.
