All I ever buy is occasion wear – dramatic earrings, flashy high heels, suit pants, silk midi dresses – which I then end up wearing to the dentist because I don’t have that many occasions in my life.
But why not make life the occasion?
There's always been something about the sporty, retro nature of the Lacoste brand that just gets me. I love it. I want to recreate it without actually spending $ 100 on the website for just one item because we all know there is no way that that is happening. I will recreate it, and I will look like i'm going to play tennis in the 80s when i'm really just going to class.
I hope that one day I'll stop being so cheap and actually buy some of this art because I think it is so sooooooooo cool.
Gucci PreFall 2018
I found a bright red blazer very similar to this at this tiny church run thrift store in the middle of no where for 33 cents, and I CANNOT WAIT TO WEAR IT. IT ALSO HAS POCKETS SO I CAN WEAR IT IN THE WINTER WITHOUT MY HANDS GETTING COLD.
Gucci Dapper Dan & Dapper Dan Originals
Here's Eric B and Rakim wearing the jackets Dapper Dan designed for them that are featured on their second album cover.
I'd like to take a minute to point out that the Follow The Leader Album is fantastic. I had never listened to 80s hip hop before, and i found that this is the PERFECT peppy beat for my suburban powerwalks. I cannot wait to force my dad to listen to this on our drive back to college !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Harling Ross's interpretation of Brad Pitt's 90s Style
" I love approaching style inspiration as a feeling instead of a strict guideline. I don’t have to copy something exactly or purchase the precise thing to experience an aesthetic thrill. Maybe everything I need is already in my closet. Maybe my version of khaki shorts is a wisp of a skirt with slits as high as the Chrysler building. As long as whatever I’m wearing mentally transports me to [the source of my inspiration], I know I’m onto something. "
