A huge musical and aesthetic inspiration to me is Marina Diamandis (aka Marina & the Diamonds). In addition to her brilliant music style, her fashion sense and visual techniques of her music videos just pique my interest and love for vintage and pin-up/rockabilly overall look.
Her unique attire's usually described as "vintage, cartoon and cheerleader", especially in her music video "Hollywood" where she's ironically depicting the "American Dream" as a complete joke.
Diamandis also mentioned that she sometimes makes her own outfits with clothes she buys from charity shops. Ahh. See this frustrates me because I have all this creative and artistic motivation to make my own clothes out of thrift shop clothes but guess what, I can't! You want to know why? Because there are no thrift shops where I live. None. Nada. 0. Nope. So the only alternative I have are overpriced clothes that you can't just wing it and redecorate!
The grunge feel to all their outfits, the morbid stories I get in my head of where this girl has been and where she's heading makes wearing the overall attire a lot more..real?
I'd gladly and quite instinctively write a story about each of those different outfits because in my head this style and type of clothing relates to everything I love about pop culture, mainly vintage pop culture of the 50s-90s.
The aesthetics convey stories and that's what makes them different and special to me.
(I'm not insane)
