Futuristic-Electro Pop

The future is here or at least pop wants you to think that. The music sounds cool, but unfortunately it seems everyone’s copping the same style.  And it’s impossible to tell who started this trend and who the copiers are.   Another thing about electro pop is the singer doesn’t necessarily have to be able to sing in order for to sound good.  A good example of this is Britney Spears.  She came back on the cusp of the electro-pop trend and I think this type of music is good for her.  I actually like a few of her songs.  That hasn’t happened for me since the beginning of her career. 

The trend is full of pantless looks, awesome shades, shininess, face make up, leggings, catsuits and awesome hair.  Look at Lady Gaga, Keri Hilson and Ciara.

 Ciara “Go Girl

 Christina Aguilera “Keeps gettin’ better

Of course men are on this electo pop wave too

 Kanye West

There seems to be a real push for female electro-pop singers.  So Kanye’s kind of out numbered right now not that he’s alone. Personally I like electro-pop, but I like real instruments better, so whenever I hear these songs with real instruments I love them even better.  What do you think about this new electro-pop trend?

How to wear Leggings

April 6, 2009 at 9:51 pm (fashion) (, , , , , )

Putting on leggings is easy.  You just slip them on, just like pants, but they are not pants.  I’ve seen so many girls around campus who seem to think that leggings (and even worse spandex)  are pants.  They aren’t.  For all the people that wear leggings correctly I applaud you. 

You can wear leggings with skirts, dresses, tunics and other long shirts that cover the behind.  Do not wear leggings with short shirts.  It just makes it look like you thought your leggings were pants.  Of course if you happen to be running that is a different story.

not pants these are tights  This is even worse than thinking leggings are pants.

  This is what I see around campus and I don’t really want to.   They haven’t moved to tights as pants yet but you never know.

I love leggings and tights and don’t want to see them abused.  Please wear them correctly.

20s stylin’

Short Bob Haircuts 2009

Recently I’ve really started like the 20s as in 1920s.  Guess it started with the comeback of the bob for me.  I think bobs are awesome, but unfortunately I’m not brave enough to cut my hair. *sigh….anyways the first person I noticed with an awesome bob was Rihanna who seemed to love cutting her hair.  Not so much lately though.  But now it seems like bobs are popping up everywhere like with Philip Lim’s models, Lady gaga, they’re just everywhere. 

 

Also, for the 20s fashion there’s the emphasis on legs and I luv tights and leggings.  I luv all colors and styles and I’m always glad to see other people in them as well as long with they have nice legs.  I wear them as often as possible.  Of course that shows up again in the 60s, but I think its awesome.  Wearing tights and leggings means plenty of tunics, short dresses and skirts.

Recently I had bought a cloche which is a hat from the 20s.  I wore it as much as possible since its made from wool and would be kind of hard to wear as of now.  Mine looks kind of like this one, but with a smaller bow.  I’ve like these since I saw Angelina Jolie’s hat from the Changeling.  Haven’t watched the movie yet, but the style was awesome.

I suppose you can tell my favorite designer from this list of things that I’ve listed.
