Friday I'm In Love


For someone who could arguably have given up their blogging career, coming back to do a post about Robert Smith may seem strange to you.

But, I am the type of person that gets so excited when they are inspired, they just have to share the bursts of love and inspiration with the world.

No wonder people get annoyed of me , I need constant communication, there's so much going on in this tiny (jk it's huge) brain of mine!

That's why I started blogging in the first place, it was a platform for me to share this (often useless) information with the world. If you wanted to read it, you could. It was a way for me to avoid bombarding my friends on Facebook with heaps of crap and selfies. Sorry, I still do that anyways.

So here I am, posting for the first time in MONTHS. Because I am feeling so much inspiration by a man named Robert Smith, also known as the lead singer of The Cure.



I mean...just look at him.



I watched the Friday I'm In Love music video directed by Tim Pope and my eyes widened. The costumes, his black eye makeup and red lipstick, his long sleeved shirt with extra long sleeves paired with super skinny pants and bulky shoes – be still my beating heart! I always have loved The Cure, I saw them live actually...but this is a new found love, rekindled.


The icing on top was absolutely the dancing. And what can I say, I have a very sacred place in my heart for irreverent and strange dance moves (cue David Byrne obsession rant, but I'll save that for another time). Robert's awkward arms and hip shaking had me wanting to climb onto the top of my desk, kick over my colleague's 4 iMac desktop computers, conquer our desk pod, overthrow the patriarchy of our open space office plan and rename said pod as a newfound dance floor. Sadly, this image only could occur vividly in my imagination, but a girl can dream.

Nonetheless, this random obsessive thought needed a blog post, so alas! Here I am, back at it again.

Until next time kids. Back to fantasizing about dancing on top of my colleague's desks with the awkwardness of a new born baby giraffe.


In honour of me avoiding work right now and being completely enamoured by this music video, I am going to help you recreate some of these looks. YES! Why not.

This gold blazer struck me with so much force, that it was hard to ignore. It's everything. You could wear it acting as a prince giving 0 actual fucks with pajama pants and loafers.  OR you could wear it with white flare sleeves peeking out from the cuffs of the blazer and creepers. Crown, optional. Nonetheless you won't need one, because you'll look so cool it will feel like you're wearing one anyways.

What can I say, it's a classic and underrated look. What caught my eye was the extra long sleeves on this white tee. I have noticed this trend in Australia, reinvented basics, essentially. Therefore, whether for men or women or women wearing mens clothes (which is always a good idea), this look had to be recreated. Go for gold baby.
