Hallelujah!! I have finally managed to get the courage to wear my jacket to school, and now I have I can't bear to take it off! At first I thought it was a bit too formal having originally only bought it for a wedding, but now I can sense all sorts of possibilities and I'm very excited for it to develop into something crazy. So hello, here it is for now, just a little bit naked with only 3 Morrissey badges. (which I'm terrified will fall off) Over time I hope for it to look even nicer, and these are the jackets that have been inspiring me...
Effy- Skins Series 4.
Lots and lots and lots of badges.
Rik Mayall as Rick from The Young Ones
Also for the badges (I never did manage to win a Blue Peter Badge though.) I also adore Vyvyan's style in The Young Ones with his little denim number..
And I have a confession, one that I had to reveal this week in an improvised monologue at my theatre class.. I'm becoming completely reliant on listening to Punk rock to have the confidence to walk around college (a bit sad I know), but when I'm having someone as equally angsty shouting in my ears, everything seems a little better.
Thankyou Johnny Rotten from The Sex Pistols
Isn't his jacket beautiful??
I'm in love with Sky Ferreira in this jacket, she's not my favourite model (mainly because I've been told I look like her, pfft I wish) but this is brilliant. I've always been too scared to stick my small patch collection on things, I may have to experiment.. I'd love a slogan jacket or a "Girls" patch, Tavi style..
And finally, combining both the badges and the patches, my lovely Dr Frank from Rocky Horror
While I'm on the subject of fashion, may I remind you, this isn't a fashion blog. I'd love to be, but I'm just not fashionable, I rarely buy clothes due to complete shop phobia but I do like to pour over fashion blogs, magazines and photos!!
Which brings me to THIS ITEM OF BEAUTY...
Look- it's Winona Ryder as Veronica Sawyer from Heathers (basically my favourite film.) I nearly cried when I saw it was from an American store, and so for sale in dollars. Grr.
Anyway, I hope you've all had an excellent week.. what would you do with a plain black jacket, I'd love to hear any other ideas or inspiration??
