The true question here is: why’d I wait so long?!?! I’ve wanted a Billy Idol album for a while now, and I finally took the plunge and pushed that Amazon Prime order button a few days ago. Dancing With Myself is that one song that has ALWAYS put a big fat smile on my face, every time. It’s one of those songs that reminds me that no matter what, everything in life will be just fine! The other song of his that is my favorite is Rebel Yell, and I think having recently read a blog post over at The Tote Trove, who mentioned that song, was the final push that made me go and order his greatest hits.
I just can’t get enough.
I love 80’s music, so it’s an easy album to jam to when I’m on the road – I also didn’t realize how much I love the song Eyes Without a Face! I can mentally pretend I’m in the 80’s while I have this playing, and that’s a good thing. I often hear many stories about life in the eighties from my mom and sister, who vow it was their favorite era. My sister graduated from high school in 1985, so I’ve always enjoyed hearing stories from her youth about this time period.
“In the eighties, it was an ‘anything goes’ attitude towards fashion,” my sister has said many times. Well, dang. Sounds like the perfect fashion mentality to me! That attitude may not be in fashion nowadays, but ‘anything goes’ will always be in fashion for me.
💖 I styled these khaki suspenders in two different ways: the first outfit in neutral color tones and the second, with brown and coral accents!! Coral is seriously one of my favorite colors and I feel it pairs so well with browns and beiges. I was feeling the color and even painted my nails an orange-red!
I felt really good in these outfits, and Billy Idol’s Greatest Hits also had me feeling pretty dang good to boot! In conclusion, the album will be on replay for quite awhile in my car. 😉
Upon seeing that I purchased this album, my mom informed me that she and my sister attended a Billy Idol concert in the eighties.
“He was so dreamy,” my mom recalled, fondly. And I agree!
See ya next time!! 💗
