Wearing My Music

People often say that fashion is a form of expression. I would agree with that statement, however it’s not always true to everyone. I spent years working as a singer and musician and was only ever able to express my musicality by wearing fan based items. It was never easy for me to find items donning a music print. These days every time I see something remotely featuring music symbols it simply has to be mine!

Collectif Clothing is a vintage brand that I have loved for years. Recently they carried some lines with bold piano key prints and music based items. When I was browsing the sale section of their website a few weeks back I was thrilled to see that this skirt was available. When it comes to vintage fashion, swing skirts are my thing. especially Transitional items are always great to wear especially when you can pair them with other items in your closet.

You could call this a Parisian chic kind of style. When putting this look together I wanted to go for a classic, chic style. I have more beret hats and head scarfs than anyone so it was easy to include one of my black ones. The winter cold is still making the days uncomfortable and so I decided to opt for a turtleneck sweater. Believe me you can dress in a way that you want and accommodate the weather too, especially in the winter!

This skirt is a nice thick material with quite deep pockets too. I love the practical side it has in addition to the scarlet red stitched music notes. I decided to wear a pair of shoes that are extremely comfortable and vintage enough in style so of course I opted for my black t-bar heels from Hotter shoes. As always when I wear black on black fashion I go for a pop of red lipstick so when the clothes I have add that extra red, even better!

I really do hope that I continue to find music based items to wear because they will always have a valued space in my wardrobe! A bomber jacket with a giant treble clef at the back would be perfection!
