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!
Since it’s October and all, I wanted to take myself on an autumnal date to do something seasonal and festive; I decided to do two things that were both seasonally festive but entirely opposite of each other: 1) take myself to a pumpkin patch and 2) go see a scary movie. The difference is that the first one is cute and second is SCARY.
Let’s start with what I wore to the pumpkin patch, and then some snaps of other spooktacular fall outfits I’ve worn this month!!! 💗
So I loved all these fun outfits but the Ghostface one was my FAVORITE!!!!!!! It paired so nicely with my new Dollskill shoes and purse! 💕💗 I also wore that shirt because I was hyped after seeing the new trailer release for Scream coming out in January next year! And a big shoutout to my new strawberry bow from SHEIN. It reminds me of strawberry shortcake!
Lastly, I went to see Halloween Kills… (I’ve never seen any of the Halloween movies, so this was all new to me)!
I had every intention of going alone, but holy freaking cow, I did NOT EXPECT TO BE THE ONLY PERSON IN THE ENTIRE THEATER!!!!!!!!! I went on a Tuesday afternoon, and no one else to be found in the theater besides me! I would have never guessed, and yeah, it brought the whole ‘going by myself’ to a whole other level that was totally terrifying while seeing this particular movie!
I kept looking over my shoulder during the super scary parts, shrouded in darkness, the movie basically only playing for me…DID I DROP SOME POPCORN? YES! (Don’t worry, I picked it up after the movie, I don’t litter!) DID I SCREAM OUT LOUD AT ONE POINT? YES!
As terrifying of a movie as it was…I actually had a spooktacular blast!!!! Happy Halloween month to me (and to you, too)!
