Many of the lovely bloggers in our little community have been facing some incredible challenges lately, myself included…. I just wanted to take a moment to say my heart is with all of you who are grieving, holding vigil, recovering or otherwise suffering. 2013 seems to be an unlucky year, indeed. I’m thankful that we have a creative outlet like blogging – it really is therapeutic to lose yourself in something you enjoy, and the social aspect of a supportive online group is a bonus.
Mr. Kitty and I have not been out dancing in ages… But in looking through my stash of unused outfit photos for something interesting to post, I came across these. I completely forgot about this one, which is a shame because I really loved the combination. Much more than I enjoyed the club I wore it to… 😉 The club was supposed to be a Dark 80s theme but the “dark” aspect was fairly subjective, I guess. I did dance to one Joy Division song, then we stood around for an hour saying to each other, “how could this be called ‘dark’??” and then we left. What the heck is it about Tainted Love, anyway? If I hear that song one more time, I swear I will scream. It actually was the final straw this particular night. Nothing makes Ms. Kitty exit a room faster than Tainted Love. Except maybe anything by Bjork, but that’s a different story!
So, enough about the music I don’t like. At least it will give us something to talk about in the comments. 😉 This outfit combines a corset from Gallery Serpentine, a velvet top and skirt set from Express, and a lace over skirt that I modified from a cheap peignoir.
Oh, and loads of fake hair.
What are your favorite dark 80s songs?
