I’ve recently been inspired by fashion bloggers like Agentlover and Strawberry Koi. If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of fashion, especially that of a vintage nature. It’s come to my attention that I receive better response from an audience when I’m dressed in simpler fare. Unfortunately this means that until I’m famous and no one cares about what I’m wearing (or distracted by it), my super stylin threads will be left in my closet on gig nights. How do I remedy this situation? Blog that shit!
That’s right. My super stylin threads will have to resort to being shown off on the internet under blog posts cleverly titled, “Mary Van DAAAMN!”
Today’s look I like to call, “What my grandma may have looked like when she was my age living in San Francisco, around the time she fell in love.” Certainly not an everyday look, but I wore it one evening going out to the Punch Line. Because why the hell not?
