Inspired By: Led Zeppelin
Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed
Kashmir, Led Zeppelin
Hands down, Led Zep is my most favourite band in the whole wide world. Not sure what that says about me, but I know the band doesn't need much explanation.
I wore this to work on Friday, in rebellion against Casual Friday. See, people in the office have been making lots of comments lately like, "you don't like jeans, do you" and "Do you ever dress down?" and so on.
I do like jeans. I'm just tired of explaining how fat they make me feel.
Anyway, these new Forever 21 skinny jeans came in the mail (they cut them large so I fit a 27 which makes me feel good, in a naive sort of way) and I knew I just had to get my pants phobia over with and wear them.
What better way than to rock skintight red ones to work? Plus, you know, they were only $16 bucks so I felt I owed it to the Bargain Gods to do so.
Anyway, looking badass was my first intention that morning but as the day went on, I couldn't stop thinking that I looked like Robert Plant and/or Jimmy Page and Black Dog was constantly in my head.
So while I normally get inspired and then dress, this time I dressed and got inspired.
PS you may notice my boots switched half-way through. The heeled versions were a lot more flattering, and more classy for work, but the flat ones handled the sand with ease.
