I used to listen to RX Bandits flat out when I was a teen (hence the title of this post). Recently I have been slipping back into old favourites, like Brand New, Usher, oooold Biffy Clyro, Justin Timberlake and Paramore. An eclectic mix for a teen who could never make up her mind on what fashion she loved. I dabbled with every hair colour, wearing tutus as casual day-wear, and ball gown dresses with Emily the Strange docs. I think / hope we can all see that I have moved on from those questionable choices.
Which brings me to my next item; these Snake-skin look stiletto platforms. Even saying those words makes me shudder. What more of a juxtaposition could you have from the scene teenager sporting eye-liner all down her face, to what sounds quite glam rock, or dare I say, something that a fallen women might opt for.
But I tell you what, these bad boys are actually pretty great. I remember back to when I started going clubbing in my under-aged years. I rocked a good heel or two in my time, and they weren't too unlike these guns, and I did it in confidence. I had no fear of falling flat in my face, and really did the whole dressing beyond your years thing pretty darn well. I could probably do with a lesson or two from seventeen year old me yenno.
Now, a sophisticated twenty-something takes to the tiles, a little shaky, but feeling pretty god damn sexy in general. It takes a lot for me to say that, because I think I am about as sexy as an OAP's unshaven calve sleeved in saggy socks. But there you go; reach a little beyond your usual fashion favourites and you might just find yourself looking in the mirror and saying "oh hey deeeer good lookin'!"
