When trying to figure out titles to my posts, especially outfit posts, I’m usually inspired by song titles and lyrics. Typically, I can come up with a title or lyric from one of my favorite bands. If something doesn’t instantly come to me, then I do a search for a few key words to spark my memory. In the case of the title to this particular post, I just couldn’t find anything using the words “may” and “blue” from my staples like Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Duran Duran, or OMD. So into the search engine I typed “lyrics, may, blue” (the color of the amazing skirt I bought from Bella of The Citizen Rosebud’s Etsy store, and name of the Miista boots). Lo and behold, out came a song by a group called Vetiver called “You May Be Blue” on Subpop Records. I’m so glad I did that because I discovered an amazing band that I had not heard before. There are great live versions on You Tube (such as this one recorded in London back in 2007), but I dig the album version. In fact, I liked the song so much that I included the video below and bought the album To Find Me Gone (Vetiver’s second album). Oh the places you’ll go when fashion blogging, no?
(Note: I wore the outfit with thick black sweater tights and a black jacket. My new job is keeping me busy with long hours, so I haven’t been able to take outfit pictures like I should. I hope to include myself wearing the outfit in a future post.)
