in my mind's eye

The vibe for the McQ FW10 lookbook is baaaaaasically my dream self as a goth in 1997.
I loved wearing my hair in Bjork-balls and I was dying it black back then, too.

I've been growing my bangs long long all winter and now I want them kiddie-scissors-gone-awry shortshortshort.

Don't you want to buy a bunch of pants at the thrift and seam rip the hell out of them and then..just..glue gun smockdress thing?

Hey now, my Chloé doc boots!
And a tablecloth from a GothScottish picnic.
And your tallest friend's sweater.
Why do I want to wear it all so badly?
I would look like a homeless shoplifter in this and YET.
And. Yet.
It looks so perfect. If not a tad bulky.

PS, I bought 99 cent black lipstick last night for reasons unknown to me.
I put it on and scared myself.

Real cool! This is very similar to how I dressed when I was 13/14/15... I also wore dyed black hair in bjork buns, striped stockings, lots of army green and skirts made from jeans.

just makes me a bit sad that McQueen isn't with us...marvelous outfits.

I am just in awe of this lookbook overall. So incredible in every way. Three years ago these looks would've been like "wtf," but I still would've adored them. xo

I'm so in awe of the general McQ collection. It was so raw and grungy and just so McQueen. Great post!


Love, Trilby.
