I must admit that I don't listen to a lot of new music. I think much of my fashion inspiration comes from songs of yesterday's past, particularly new-wave and post-punk. Although I like to wear fancy dresses and skirts, I am also drawn to lots of black. On a day-to-day basis, you will find me wearing something quite similar to this outfit. Black dresses, black tights, and ankle boots. I also love this hat (it is definitely one of my favorites). It reminds me of Boy George during his Culture Club days.

One of my biggest musical inspiration is Joy Division (Unknown Pleasures). I first heard Joy Division during middle school but never took interest. However, I developed quite an appreciation for their talent during college. There music is about a decade ahead of its time, and you can still hear their influence in contemporary songs. Shadowplay is by far my favorite Joy Division song. I was quite upset that The Killers butchered the song in a horrible synth-filled cover.

Love, love, love Joy Division! I wrote the "She's Lost Control" lyrics on my dorm room wall. Your hat is cute and does remind me of those 80s-90s videos.
