Do you ever have those moments where you look inside yourself and think "What would Steven Tyler do?"
Not only did I think that today, but I looked in my closet and thought
"What would Steven Tyler wear?"
and then I went to work!
so Steven Tyler is a huge style inspiration to me, he is constantly pushing the boundries in his music and his style. I don't know about yall, but I find it so incredibly sexy if a guy is confident enough in himself, his rock and his fashion that he can actually wear sequins, scarves and leather pants. He is basically the champion of the world!
Here are some pictures of the rock icon himself including some vintage photos
I dont even mind the guy-liner
and this is by far my favorite photo of him!!
Major babe since his teens!!
Not only is his music brilliant, but he is insightful as still water the panda!
here are a few quotes of his that have inspired me
"As you know, I'm androgynous, I can wear a jacket that most guys wouldn't put on. But you make it in guys' sizes and suddenly they're wearing them. I think styles should get back to getting people to wear things that look so good that they dont even care."
"Humility, is really important because it keeps you fresh and new"
"I mean, as long as it doesn't have a bra attached, guys can take a risk and wear stylish things that went out of style 30 years ago. As things go around, they come around."
and my all time FAVORITE quote has to be
"And the things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first."
now onto my outfit
Steven Tyler is famous for his eccentric accessories and saucey use of colors and materials, his life and style is perpetually out of the "box."
and can we just acknowledge that Steven Tyler had feather extensions before all the bitches in junior high, he's been rockin those babies since 1970
-Steven Tyler's silk scarf covered mike stands inspired my head piece, which is actually an Obi from one of my kimonos, luckily for me it has duel purposes!
-Disco pants are from American Apparel
-My fur shrug is from Armani Exchange and I've actually found so many uses for this baby, it was well worth the original price, and dont worry my friends, it was killed from a fake animal, the kind that roam that alternate fake universe where fake boobs and fake food are the norm...oh wait...that sounds like LA (hehehehe)
-My button down shirt-dress-thing is from Betsey Johnson, with this thing I always feel like I should be on Rock of Love
-Cheeta Print bathing suit is from Victoria Secret, my sister kindly let me borrow it
-all the jewelry is from my jewelry box, if you REALLY want to know specifics just let me know
-I'm also wearing my clip in feathers that I bought from the Pow-wow
and my various rings are also from the Pow-wow
and alas, the return of my Thelma & Louise boots!
and believe me, these boots are made for walking
we'll contemplating the longevity of the 41-year old band and the perplexity of gravity and how it effects 62-year-old Steven Tyler, I seriously advise you to watch these music videos
yall already know how much I LOVE Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone
so of course I died when I saw these music videos,
oh and please note the high-tech graffics in Amazing...hahahah I die
oaky its time I go
but I hope Steven Tyler inspires you as much as he inspires me!
Keep it sassy yall,
