wet seal teal coat, black slacks, shoes from bunny, head wrap from target. the jacket is corduroy and nice and snuggly. plus i love the big buttons...
fabulous colorful lining inside the jacket. i usually wear it with the cuffs rolled up so that you can see the fun inside. also, fun beaded necklace from express.
more black on black- always chic, always my go to. cotton black sweater with side button detailing (hard to see), with resultant asymmetrical neck line. paired with black and whit earrings and silver rose pin.
you can the buttons here some. very warm and cozy!
my bunny says this poncho makes me look like an art gallery owner, which i think is very funny. paired with giant purple ring, rocket dog flats, and black trousers.
the gun street girl.
Tom Waits tshirt with express skirt and target flats. if you do not know his music, you owe it to yourself to get on it. he is on the very short list of my most favorites- in music and in style. many of you know of the affect Tim Burton has had on me- Tom Waits is also on that list, in that certain pieces immediately remind me of him and i know instantly that he would love them.
Tom's early work is gritty, classically influenced jazz piano. his voice is unmistakeable, his lyrics are imaginative and cut to the core. he is like no other. lots of black on black with small surprises (linings, cuffs, a handful of glitter), fabulously cut suits, and a sense of occasion, circus freak, road warrior, and vintage master are all present in his look.
he also possesses one of the most fascinating, gravelly, darkly beautiful voices that have ever graced this existence.
here's an earlier track, "Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis."
and hats! bloody fantastic hats!
i think his look is uniquely American and i always embrace lovely men with style. you may recognize one of his songs from Fight Club... "Goin' Out West."
in 1983, Tom's music took a moved away from jazz and classical in what has been termed a turn for the weird.
this change can be most easily heard between the records Heartattack and Vine (1980) and Swordfishtrombones (1984). my favorite is Rain Dogs. and i am a gun street girl.
this shirt is from the Glitter and Doom tour, it's a photograph of an oil stain that Tom took. i think it looks like a guy pointing. i love it. and i always know i like a stranger who recognizes it and who's the cause of it all.
