I have stated a few times before that in my life music and style go pretty much hand in hand: a certain song or the mood of a song can define what kind of ensemble I end up pulling out of the closet for the day. Many times I’ve wanted to transmit my inspiration sources in the form of music, but a bunch of Youtube videos at the end of the entry would feel kind of silly, especially when most of the tracks I’d like to play can not be found from there. Hence, I’ve just ended up naming my entry titles with song lyrics or something of the kind.
After multiple requests from my behalf, the required plug-in for a play list has finally become available on Indiedays, and I got the pleasure to be the first one to test out of this new feature. If this works out, I was thinking about making this a weekly habit, if time permits. My plan is also to put something current and those forgotten gems on your platter, hence the title name “Off the beaten track“.
Today’s dark but dancey playlist is a prelude to the weekend which will include dressing in black (no surprise there), meeting up with friends, attending a fashion show, and hopefully good times. Let me know what you think!
