Rolling stones tank top, TJ Maxx (similar) Sleeveless white button up (underneath), thrifted. Black circle skirt, American Apparel Camel cardigan, gift from my mother. Underground Groovin' Bootie, Modcloth.
It is my opinion that buying tee shirts with classic rock band graphics on them from chain stores kind of defeats the purpose. I'm totally hardcore for having something that shows my enjoyment of the Rolling Stones, along with the thousands of other girls who probably own the same tee shirt. But hey, actual vintage band tee shirts cost a pretty penny and this is my favorite iteration of the famous lips logo that I've seen to date.
I love styling things that aren't necessarily classic with some more buttoned-up, proper pieces. Although my stompin' boots from Modcloth aren't exactly in my comfort zone, I thoroughly enjoyed pairing them with my full skirt and cardigan for an outfit which I was told is reminiscent of School of Rock. Hey, I'll take that as a compliment any day.
This particular tank top actually sparked my idea for my latest fashion column for my school newspaper. I will tell you that there's a bit of a giveaway in the article about my personal life, but that's definitely a story for another time. I promise you'll go "Awww...", so I think the status of my love life is a subject for a post of its own. However, aside from that, the article is about the influences behind how we get dressed. I don't just mean inspiration from movies or decades past, I explore the idea of how much impact our peers and people of the opposite gender actually affect the way we dress. I'd love for you to read the column and leave comments either here or on the website.
