OUTFIT // CLOSE TO ME.






Classic navy coat, River Island. Grey knitted jumper, H&M. Vintage oversized men's blouse. Vintage leather waist belt. Boots, ZARA. Vintage bag. Hat, H&M. Can't remember what lipstick I was wearing, and where the hell I got the idea from to do my nails in twotone

Today's song is a classic. This version of The Cure's Close to Me dates from 1985, but it's timeless. I can listen to it daily, I don't think I'll get tired of it. And it inspires me in so many ways!

Since classic is today's word for me, I opted for classic pieces for this outfit. A navy jacket with golden buttons, a conservative knitted jumper, a vintage bag that resembles the Godmother of classic bags - the Chanel 2.55. To top it off, I added a tad of bright red lipstick and an old-fashioned hat to give it a little French twist. In other words, total overkill of classiness. Mmm, I love overkill.

Anyone who knows The Cure, knows that the word 'classic' doesn't apply in the same ways for their music, and this outfit. But I think that the esssential key word of a classic is timeless. I mentioned it before: it's interesting to mix up classics from different eras, whether it is musical inspiration or literally a mix-up of a 90s denim jacket and a 60s maxi dress.

In my opinion, time clash is going to become the next classic.
