Don’t step on my grey suede shoes

Jacket: Fossil. Shirt: AE. Skirt: Vintage. Tights: HUE. Creeper Sneakers: TUK.

Meet my new creeper sneakers! They’re much cuter in person.

Tangents ahoy! I’m a big fan of rockabilly and psychobilly. Billygoaty is also fun. Heh, kidding. Andy introduced me to the glory of Tiger Army when we first met but it took me a while to  warm up to them. When I finally GOT IT? I fell hard. And I wouldn’t shut up about them.

Me: DUDE. They’re soooo good! Andy: I KNOW. I told you that FOUR YEARS AGO.

So since I was obsessed, Andy and I went to a lot of  Tiger Army shows.

Me: TIGER ARMY IS PLAYING AGAIN, HOMG. Andy: Already seen them twice, I’m good! Me: NEVER. DIE.

Nick 13 SQUEEEEE.

One of my favorite songs:

I couldn’t get enough. THE BEST live performances ever. The energy …I can’t even.I mean, I could’ve danced all night and still, STILL have begged for more. What drew me to the shows was obviously the music (Nick’s voice is jamazing) but the outfits that I got to witness were always a close second. The clothes, the hair, the SHOES! So much awesome in one place.

I wish I had some pictures, but you’ll have to take my word for it.

Anyway, I’ve been wanting a pair of creepers for a while and I bought these a while back:

but wear them very rarely because they’re a bit too big and make me feel like Frankenstein’s monster.

So I think the sneakers are a happy medium. I love my grey suede shoes to bitsies and they’ve got plaid lining which makes them even cooler. They’re also crazy comfortable.

I scored a pair for Z on Ebay a while back, so I thought I’d take a family photo of sorts.

Is it sad that a picture of shoes makes my heart constrict?

Z’s favorite Tiger Army song, by the way, is “Rose of the Devil’s Garden”.

    I love this outfit!! The jacket is such a great cut and the plaid skirt is so schoolgirl chic. And thanks for the music inspiration, I totally need more variety in my iPod!

    JENNIFER! I have never even called you that before. Today I was deleting some reader subscriptions (no longer need obsessive namings blogs) and I noticed you hadn’t updated in a while so I clicked over here only to see that you update ALL THE TIME! Is the other blog kaput? I thought this was a style blog and I could check in occasionally because you would email me the good stuff anyway. But it’s so much more! *shakes head in disappointment* How dare you expand your skills and interests without consulting me?

    I kid (mainly). The silver lining of abandoning my infant for the dreariness of employment will be keeping up with your apparently exciting life.

      Dear Lord woman, you make me laugh! No, the other blog isn’t kaput, I just haven’t felt like it lately. But I’ll try to update it soon, mostly because Andy keeps nagging me about it. I didn’t think you read this one, I know you’re not a fan of style blogs! I’m going to call you in a bit. Just a heads up.
