What I Wore Today

Good Intentions

I didn’t mean to dress like Joey Buttafuoco, but as I look at the pictures from Friday, it kind of turned out that way.  And now I get why the “Love Will Tear Us Apart” shirt felt so perfect.

  • Pants, belt & stud bracelets: F21
  • Tee: MetroPark
  • Jacket: H&M
  • Pumps: 9West, from the outlet in Lake of the Ozarks, MO
  • Stud earrings: Kohl’s, by Avril Lavigne
  • Sunglasses: Lola Star in Coney Island

I Didn’t Intend to Look Like Sid Vicious Today.

But I kind of do.  It’s feeling like a really long week.

Shirt: Metro Park.  I love how I’ve been seeing students in Joy Division t-shirts recently.  This second generation looks more social than the first.  And just to be clear, I wasn’t part of the first.  I do like this song, and all that Joy Division represent in music history, but I’m really fascinated by the co-opting going on with this t-shirt.

Pants: Sears.  I’m pretty pleased with these pants, and all the associations: 80’s, 50’s, punk, new wave, retro.

Ankle boots: Excelsior Goodwill.  They’re Steve Madden.  I have the pink version, which I got at Lord & Taylor.  I think I can say exactly the same thing about these boots that I said about the pants.

Jacket: a little shop in Cincinnati, near the Convention Center.  It was marked down to $5.  I thought it would last one season and I’ve had it about seven years now.

Rhinestone skull earrings: Hot Topic.

Necklace: thifted in Evansville.

Arms: brown & black stud bands, Wet Seal; silver bangle set, Dogtown (STL) rummage sale; others, thrifted & TJ Maxx.

Sunglasses: that little place on Durant in Berkeley.

I could go on and on about how postmodern this outfit is, but I’ll just leave it for now.
