sorry about the layout

What's better than the streetstyle showcased during fashion week, why festival month of course.

I love how each look seem to represent the journey of each individual and how they happen to still be standing here with us today.

Musics always come before fashion for as long as i can remember. Most of my looks are heavily influence by the music I listen to and so are the looks of the people that influence me, so again I love mapping out the journey of an individuals look.
And I may arguably not be part of the
MTV generation but MTV was defiantly my equivalent of vogue back inthe day. Whatever they wore I'd try to recreate and I remember the day
I turned six and my mom know longer had to layout my outfits on my bed
anymore and I could wear hatever I wanted. I remember one look being a purple pollarneck matched with the exact colour of purple leggings...yeah, again, I was six and back then my
favourite teacher's name was violet.

So I won't be going for a full blown festival weekend so I won't have to worry about packing loads of clothes with me. Personally I'm still to immature and paranoid to do the tent thing. As
much as I'd love to I'd be to freaked out that someone stellng my stuff and be to worried about over packing. I would have gone to download since I was dying to hear Deftones
live if it weren't for me having exams that week...

So this festival season I hope to see more characters than dudes you could easily read who there their to see. I'll personally be referencing Hendrix eccentrics looks, hippies of course for the simplicity in actual clothing but gift of accessorising, the native Indian or more specifically Pocahontas, for that free spirited feather look and turquoise
jewelry that's a hit this summer.
