(mandy coon top, opening ceremony skirt from ebay, venessa arizaga necklace, alexander wang shoes)
Saying goodbye to Panic! was incredibly bittersweet because sometimes the most meaningful things become greater than themselves when they die. Remembering all of the times Morgan and I danced to "Bittersweet Symphony", I took inspiration from the Verve for my outfit. Both that song and A Storm in Heaven which is the Verve's psychedelic debut album and a hidden gem from 90s alternative rock. A Storm in Heaven is hugely inspirational to me because of the way its songs are somber yet full of light, hollow-sounding yet a conjurer of worlds that don't exist, simply through Nick McCabe's haunting guitar.
I fell in love with this skirt because it reminded me of the music video for "Bittersweet Symphony", both in the colors and the way the falling leaves project a feeling of melancholy.
