Life's crazy. Ever since I have been featured on Buzzfeed.com in this "teen style icon" post, I can't even tell you what's happening. The local newspaper wrote an article about me and my blog (page one, guys!), featured me on their website and boom, that was my official "outing". Most of my friends knew about this blog, bu I've always enjoyed how anonymous the internet is - now everybody, like, everybody knows about my blog. And actually, people are being really lovely! I've got tons of positive feedback and supercute compliments and congratulations. But it's not over yet - I'm doing a interview on the radio this week, and a entire photo set plus interview with another magazine! I almost feel famous, it's so weird (in a freaking awesome way!).
Besides that, school kinda sucks. Because of the overwhelming amount of deadlines and pressure I am basically stressed all the time. To get rid of the constant worries (such as: I messed up this important test. I am going to mess up the next important test tomorrow. I won't get a job. I'm not even able to live on my own.) I'm trying hard to get more of a I'm-young-I-don't-care-attitude. So what could be a better soundtrack to my life than Kurt Cobain's wonderful voice?
My family gave me a Nirvana album for Christmas last year, which I lost and found again in my room like two weeks ago. I've been listening to it constantly since then. Most people say listening too much Grunge music makes you unhappy or depressed, angry or aggressive - in my case, it's just the other way round. Nirvana makes me feel strong, vigorous and invincible, even happy, to be frank. I'm not able to put it into words as great as Kurt himself: "Punk is musical freedom. It's saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster's terms, 'nirvana' means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that's pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock." . I mean, freedom is the thing you should search for in music, shouldn't you?
But the pure music of Nirvana is not the only reason for my current Kurt-Cob-session: in fact, I bought The diaries of Kurt Cobain, which is a book with the collection of diary pages and the German translation (for times when I can't read his handwriting,haha). I think it's amazing to read the diary of another person, especially of a person that interesting as Kurt Cobain! It's like a glimpse inside his head. His writing is extraordinary shocking and wonderful, his letters tell so much about him and the notes for song lyrics are incredible! I'm obsessed, which you can probably tell from the fact that I am hugging a book.
YAY for this book and NIRVANA. Isn't he the best? His smile is as lovely as a child's and his voice probably as husky as ... I can't find a comparison, he's too great.

Needless to say, my outfit is grunge-inspired. Of course I could not resist the urge to wear a flower crown I made this summer. I also wear two shirts - layering extreme. I liked the idea of clashing two different tartan patterns, so I chose a thrifted jacket-shirt-thing in dark green and a shirt a good friend of mine gave me (not forever, sadly. it's so cozy and comfortable and soft and grunge.). And as the ultimate key style of the Grunge era included a lot of flannel tartan shirts, I think they fit the theme quite well! I am wearing one of my favorite T-shirts underneath the layers. It's beautifully printed with the different phases of the moon - I bought it on asos in the men's department for around 10 euros, I think, so it was quite a good deal.
The pants I'm wearing are from Zara (I'm so short, Zara's pants are the only ones fitting me, seriously.) and are high-waisted. I am pretty obsessed with high-waisted jeans, actually! The boots were a gift from my lovely boyfriend last Christmas and are my ultimate go-for on bad days as the holographic texture projects tiny rainbows on your feet and what on earth could make one happier than this?
I also wear my beloved black lipstick and the bracelets I could never put off.
Wow, that was a lot of raving in one post. But how couldn't I?
Anyways, I love connecting music with fashion, so I hope you like this post.
Lots of love,
