Wanda Jackson

Her voice, her singing style, the way she moves, her fringe dress. This video is the epitome of COOL. Absolute swagger.

Shoot the runner

I saw this on the TopShop website and I freaked out. I LOVE it! Who doesn't need a floor length black lace kimono? Get it here.

This is how I would wear it. I wouldn't tie the waist. I would wear it open with black skinny jeans and a black tank top. Pair it with some colorful Golden Goose cowboy boots, turquoise YSL ring on your finger, Aurelie Bidermann dreamcatcher necklace, and a Rag & Bone fedora hat.

I'm not a shorts person, but this is another awesome way to wear it. Graphic tee, denim cut-off shorts, black TopShop ankle boots, floppy hat, and beads by Rosantica. For best effect, wear it on a slightly breezy day to make your kimono move.

Hotness in all its glory.

I control my destiny

One year and I'm still very sad that you are no longer here. Personally, your passing really hit me harder than Michael Jackson. The reason might be because I related to your songs very much. I loved how it really hit me in the heart while the raw garage punk energy pulled through. I would listen to your song and think "wow, there's someone who feels the exact same way I do" and I'd find comfort in that. I still clearly remember that day. I came home from work, tired as hell, and I was surfing the internet after dinner. I went to a music blog I frequent and I saw a blog post titled "RIP Jay Reatard". At first, I was shocked, then I went into denial and thought maybe you were calling it quits in the music world, or something band related. Until I kept reading the post and learned of your death. If you only knew how much your music meant to me.
