Fa fa fa fa fashion


for the love of me, i could not find a video for costello's "green shirt."
But you tease, and you flirt
And you shine all the buttons on your green shirt

i tried.

it started yesterday in the market with Romeo in black jeans.
that got me looking.
my mom offered nancy.

how 'bout Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini?

I wish I was kidding, but I'm not, alas:

Rasberry beret, prince
New shoes, Paulo nutini (not sure of the spelling)
Lady in red, no idea who sings it
Blue suede shoes, elvis

Even though it’s cheating to name rap songs:
The apple bottom jeans, boots with the fuuuuuurrrrr song that is ridiculously over played.
I got my vans on but they look like sneakers.

And let’s not forget the classics:
I’m too sexy for my shirt.

damn it someone mentioned raspberry beret before me. i just love the random detail the song lyrics offer... the naming of the color as "raspberry", not something prosaic like red or pink or magenta... and it's "the kind you find in a second-hand store". clearly written by someone who knows something about personal style. ;-)

lady in red is by chris deburgh... one of the most cheesy yet catchy songs of the 80s no?

some more - blue dress - depeche mode; undone (the sweater song) - weezer; vicar in a tutu - the smiths. (now i'm going to go look up this morrissey song on christian dior... i had no idea!)
