Colour vs Sound Clash

I've explained before how more often than not the one strong influence upon my wardrobe choice is often my music playlist.Every once and a while I may have a different source of inspiration,but mainly my daily outfits/ style depends on which tune/artist/band I stumble upon when shuffling through numerous songs and albums.Today it was a case of serious musical mash up, I began my morning with blasting out The Breakfast Club soundtrack, followed yet again by MGMT hence the colour clash,yup my bizarre ensemble was indeed heavily influenced by my bizarre early morning sound clash.I've given my nod and eighties approval in the form of these bad boy exaggerated shoulders: big enough for a small aircraft to take off into flight.
Then there's the other half of my outfit two words.Wyngarden effect.
I'm showing off (I apologise for no pics, camera batteries died on me) my DIY skillllz, wearing a pair of acid pink and electric blue jeans...slowly I'm fighting and overcoming the denim demons, if you had asked me a year ago to sport jeans I would have laughed in your face and legged it, always opting for a dress or skirt (ignorance is bliss) convinced jeans were dull,lazy and no fun.How wrong was the 2009 me?Jeans, trousers, leggings,jeggings they all have the ability to provide creative style fun for I am not at all limited. If anything it means I have to really exercise my creativity, as jeans/trousers etc require more imagination than if I were to chose a dress.From now on I pledge to dabble with the denim,I'll record my progression here...trial and error springs to mind.

I LOVE everything about The Breakfast Club. I went through a phase of scouring charity shops and vintage shops to find a top like Claire's.
And I regularly clean at work to 'We Are Not Alone', then re-create the girls' foot-shuffle move by myself.

OMG the foot-shuffle is one of my fave fave scenes that and the scene when they all run up and down the hall. Oh and the end is obvioulsy pretty damn good too.
Come to think of it the whole film is just epic!
