one color, muted, uncomplicated

I've been wearing lots of black lately, just all at jeans, black tops, black shoes, with a brown leather belt, very simple. Dressing for myself used to be such an exciting event for me, so much fun to wear the most outlandish items - of vintage descent with crazy colors, patterns, combinations, influences, and styles. But now I'm feeling very overwhelmed and disgusted by that all. I just want basics, one color outfits, and be it not even colorful colors. Is it because I'm getting older? Why do I feel this strong urge to get rid of 98% of my wardrobe, all my treasures collected through the years, once coveted and sacred to me? I don't know what it is, but I feel no need to try and create an outfit or style that has to be something costume esque or outlandish anymore. Just very muted and simple, the only things showing any sign of energy from jewelry or headbands. Maybe it's just a phase, but each and every day i'm caring less and less on fashion... :(

excess synths gilded

All i've been really into musically is a lot of 80s dance music - and theres so much to choose from! Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, Simple Minds, Dead or Alive... I don't know but I'm very into it all for the campiness and just the simple uncomplicated poppyness of it's wonderbar... and this video = amazing... I never used to care much for Simple Minds but I'm diggin' this song a lot...
