Moan of the month
Following on from my I Wore It First post, Urban Outfitters are selling vintage-look tees of my faveourite cool 80s bands. Now I didn’t mind it when people (read LA junior celebs) wore vintage Metallica and Rolling Stones tees cos those are not ‘my’ bands but Run DMC and New Order? In mass quanities? Enough please!!

It annoyed me most with the Ramones. I once overhead a girl telling her friend that ‘they aren’t a real band. They’ve just been made up for t-shirt and bags’. If I was a violent person, I’d have knocked her out!

Run DMC?! argh. i saw a pair of jellies in urban today. angry. I also saw a pair of cheap plastic wayfarers. I had the exact same pair, but I got it as a prize at my school carnival. now i can’t wear it without looking stupid.
The trends that I saw at Urban:
– ripoff of the chloe paddington
– ripoff of balenciaga keffiyeh, which i’ll admit balenciaga ripped off of palestinians
– jellies (!)
– doctor bags
– so many metallic shoes my head spun

Well it’s like that, and that’s the way it is. (Sorry – possibly my lamest attempt to make lyrics appropriate to a comment, ever).
