Damon Albarn Saved Me From Being An Old, Dusty, Goth.

I am getting ready for my leaving to Seattle tomorrow and listening to videos on Youtube...and remembering my huge crush on Damon Albarn, lead singer of blur.

My crush on Mr. Albarn drug me out of the world of Gothic kids and brought me to the wonderful world of "Brit Pop in the 1990s". He saved me from turning into those old, dusty, Gothic people you see who are way too old to be dressing like they do and who seem mentally off. Or at least Albarn, blur, and all the other brit pop bands helped me with a swift exit from a lifestyle I was fast outgrowing,

So, I will share his cuteness that saved me from the dark side in four Youtube videos:

*Sigh* So cute! Those intense eyes in the "Beetlebum" video.

Doing his best Alex from "A Clockwork Orange" in "Universal".

And being snarky as usual in "Girls and Boys" video.

Singing one of my favorite blur songs, after "Beetlebum", in "Parklife".

*Sigh* I am all nostalgic tonight and want a cute guy like Albarn in my life.

Anyway, off I go to get packed for Seattle.

Beautiful green halter top for me.

If I had the money at this moment, I would buy this:

I love the colour and the cut of this halter and would wear it everywhere!

Crimson Clutch

I am loving this clutch:

Above: crimson leather 'Angie' clutch by Linea Pelle

It has an almost storybook look to it. As if it were drawn for a character in a child's book. Yet, it is very modern.

I love it.

These shoes excite me!

How beautiful are these shoes?

Above: Naughty Monkey Tri It

I am loving how eye-catching they are and the patent leather in so many colours.

I know that some people would call them "tacky" but I could see wearing them with jeans and a solid black shirt. They have a bit of a "patchwork quilt" feel or 1970s feel to them.

I just love them.

Classy With An Edge.

I am loving the keyhole cut-outs on the shoulders of this top:

Above: black striped jersey knit keyhole top by Bailey 44

It has a touch of the 80s new wave/punk rock look to it yet is modern, sleek, and classy.

Ohhhh Bright Coral!

I found this bag:

While looking through
It's coral, it's bright, it cinches closed, and it has a gorgeous strap!
Very nice.

Origami Slides...all shiny and new.

I love these slides:

Above: Hannah Origami Flat Slide by Eileen Shields

They are silver, simple, and shiny. I love the origami fold in the desgin and think they would look pretty cool with a simple black dress like this one:

Above: black jersey wrap front empire dress by Generra

And throw on a necklace like this one:

Above: Red Bloom Necklace (sterling silver and coral twig) by Bombalurina

And maybe this bracelet:

And you have a pretty outfit for a summer night/evening.

Painted Looking Shoes.

I added these shoes:

Above: black satin multicolor floral printed sandals by Balenciaga

to my stylefeed and the hate for them is amazing. They have more "1's and "2's in voting than I have seen in a long time.

I love them, they are funky, colourful, and unique. Maybe that is why they are not popular with the general population?

Maybe people think they look "messy" because they have a "paint-spattered" look due to the print?

They would look great with jeans or a solid black tights and a solid colour dress.

I love them in all their weirdness.

So You Want To Be Rockin'?

I was adding things to my stylefeed when I got inspiration for a rather rockin' outfit incoporating some of the things I had added to my feed.

How about this tee:

With this skirt:

Add these beautiful shoes:

Above: Black Satin Floral Enamel Heeled Sandals by Prada

These very cool sunglasses:

Above: Red Ombre "Lauren" Oversized Sunglasses by Tom Ford

And this bag:

Above: Violet Patent Lambskin 'Bay' Medium Hobo by Chloe

And maybe some silver bangles:

Above: Set of 14 Silver Bangles by Jennifer Zeuner

And a ring like one of these (maybe the black/white/grey one):

Above: Imooi - Mosaic Ring

And you would have a very cool outfit. Perfect for those days when you feel the urge to dress "funky".
