Hey hey! ♥
Don’t ya just love when you find one of your favorite albums on vinyl? I managed to get Hole’s 1994 album Live Through This this past weekend!
I really love this album; it has that distinct 90’s sound I’m quite partial to. Courtney Love has such a unique, edgy voice and there are a lot of great songs on here, in my opinion! “Doll Parts” and “Miss World” are my two favorites. ♥
I plan on collecting more 90’s records I love. The next one I have my eye on is Dizzy Up the Girl (1998), my favorite Goo Goo Dolls album. 🌸
Again, the gloves are back…don’t be surprised if you see these more often! These are the pale pink ones I’ve been waiting for… 😃 😃 😃
Shades of purple!!! 💜 Can’t go wrong with that, am I right? Paired with the gloves, I just really loved this outfit. REALLY LOVED IT. Plus, the sweater was warm (it’s getting chilly).
So, I was thinking today; who was your first style inspiration? Did you have one? I certainly did, and here was mine, funny enough:
You didn’t see that coming, did you?
Poison Ivy from Batman and Robin (1997) was my first fashion inspiration as a kid. I was 10 years old. Her over-the-top style and the fact that she was nuts made her all the more endearing, but the main appeal for me was her hair. I actually wanted to style my hair just like the above picture at the time, but I reached a compromise with my mom and ended up making my own ivy headband (Haaa! My first DIY project!) that emulated what she wore in her hair here:
I wore that headband all the time. I even had lime green sunglasses like the ones she wore in the movie.
And that was just the beginning of what was to come of my future in dressing myself. I think this was the starting point in which my family at first, when I’d debut something interesting I wanted to wear, would answer with a collective “…why?”
But then it was too late. From then on I swam so far out into my own ocean of fashion lunacy, that they decided to just smile and wave supportively from the safety of the bay docks, rather than try to swim after me and stop it.
Figuratively speaking, of course…
Which is good! 😀 I’m glad self-expression was an okay thing to embrace growing up. If it hadn’t been, I wouldn’t be who I am today, which would make me sad. 🙁
Snap shots from the start of the week!!!
I went to a Parisian-themed café:
I then took a nice nature walk and enjoyed the changing of the leaves:
So needless to say, the start of my vacation week has been splendid! 💕
See ya next time!!! Ghost post is next!
