Eleanor, Put Your Boots Back On
Today I wore what can only be described as my "rocker" dress. This dress is harcore, with burnished grommets all over it and a racerback to add a little edge.
For those of you who have been reading this for a while, you probably know that I used to be quite the punk rock chick from the 80's into the mid 90's.
And if you are one of my newer followers (welcome aboard!) you can see for yourself here. And here.
You're not going to click unfollow now are you? Cause even though some of you just arrived, I'd miss you for sure!
Anyway,this dress brings back the memories of the edgy Eleanor...and I love wearing it.
It completely required messy hair,sky high heels and chunky, chain jewelry.
And it brings back memories of hanging out in bars in NYC with bands like The Damned, holding Joey Ramones tea for him after a show, meeting Bjork when she was in The Sugarcubes and so on.
So in homage to my younger days, I wore the same sports bra I slept in all night and didn't wash my hair this morning.
See? I am still quite the rebel (at heart!)
denim jacket: ?
shoes: nine west
P.S. The title of this post is actually an amazing song by Franz Ferdinand that my 7 year old thinks they wrote just for me, because, you know, her mom used to be a rock star in her mind!
