I actually had to think about this one. I'm a lover of colour, but I found it quite hard to combine the right ones here. In the end, I went for this vintage tapestry coat layered over a green sweater dress over red skinny pants and the new creepers which I'm Not Taking Off this week. (here's my report in case you missed it). Not as spectacular as some of the outfits I've seen, but hey, I'm happy. :)
Since I'm off to the Paradiso later to jump up and down in front of Sleater Kinney, this outfit needs to go day to evening. So I've layered it with a printed tee, some fun arm candy and, of course, the mix tape bag. I've packed a few golden '80's hits to go:
- Human League - Love Action
- Wham - Everything She Wants
- Hall and Oats - Kiss Is On My List
- ABC - The Look of Love
- Heaven 17 - Temptation
- New Order - Blue Monday
- The Smiths - How Soon Is Now?
- Talking Heads - Burning Down The House
- Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
- Grace Jones - Slave to the Rhythm
ETA: that was incendiary! Those ladies really tore up the Paradiso.
For your viewing pleasure, here are a few pics of Sleater Kinney from the pit. As you can see, Carrie is a guitar goddess, and Corin wore a dress to match my socks.
Best. Girl. Band. Ever.
