Black Out

With the 'summer' weather being as fickle as it is right now: one minute sunshine warmness, the next black heavy grey clouds and lashings of ice cold rain, thunderstorms and freak floods .I've decided I need not bother with getting together a vibrant summer wardrobe, to hell with it what is the point huh? Besides I've failed to find any summer items that really appeal to me, there is a real lack of exciting prints I'm bored of ditsy floral prints, I've had it up to hear (pointing at my head) with the whole boat and anchor/ Alexa Chung style crap which is just about everywhere from newlook to frigging topshop. GO AWAY. Jeez these retail outlets sure know how to milk a celeb 'inspired' trend don't they?
Rant over, until next time ha!


Times like these, I simply turn to the inner punk/psychedelic/ grunge/emo/indie/ rock i.e the stubborn thirteen year old self who doesn't seem to fade really. Probably because my style is influenced by music and my taste in music hasn't changed since I was pre-teen I remain loyal to all bands with something to say and stories to tell. At thirteen I was already well aware of how I wished to express myself and of course there is no better tool for self expression then fashion, it speaks volumes and is capable of doing all the talking. Even when you yourself wish not to speak and chose to remain silent, those threads will communicate your current mood. As far back as I can remember I've been having a love affair with rock music and I'm assuming its here to stay. Sticking two fingers up to those who called it a phase.
Anywhos I was having a bit of a sort out the other night (being a night owl and all) I came across one fierce poster of The Distillers (fly by band they were, epic tunes though)and another poster of Stone Temple Pilots.
Stuck in a rut with what to wear, I simply turned to these two bands for my outfit reference point. Yep the inner thirteen year old is lurrrrrrrrving this black out!
I don't take part in outfit posts as I'm shy (well sort of) and do not fancy splashing pics of myself for the whole world to see, just the thought fills me with dread. So I figured I'd post up the items I'm wearing to illustrate this glorious black out I'm experiencing...
