This outfit was heavily influenced by too many viewings of this music video. Every outfit in that video is pretty much perfect and it inspired me to bring out a vintage coat I hadn't worn all winter and unearth my leopard print shoes. I have this problem with music (and music videos I suppose) where I just fall in love with a CD or somg and listen to them on repeat. I'll play one CD every time I'm at my computer or in my car for a couple of weeks straight until I'm sick of it. It's hard for me to find balance; when I enjoy something like that I tend to get a bit addicted. There's this thing about songs, similar to certain books or merely passages in books, where they just resonate. They fit perfectly with what you're feeling in that moment and playing them in the background while you check e-mails or drive through traffic makes things seem better and more poignant. And why would you give up that feeling when you can hit repeat?
