RIP George Michael


I wore this outfit on Tuesday to run some errands and do some thrifting. I only thought it was proper to wear my George Michael pin in honor of his recent and sudden passing. Later in the afternoon I then learned (with the rest of the world) that Carrie Fisher passed away! UGH! 2016 has been the year that our childhood idols are dying. :(


I've been fan of George Michael since the 80s. My fondest memories are of my dance teacher Mr. Jodi obsessively playing George Michael songs for our jazz class warm ups. He would be singing the words to the songs while we did floor exercises or were practicing new dance moves he taught us. I believe Mr. Jodi even did a solo to a George Michael song for our dance school recital. I would also play my George Michael cassette's on repeat on my little red boombox that was a hand-me-down from my big brother. Ahhhh, memories.


Wearing; oversized button up (thrifted), long cardigan (H&M), so goth leggings (Killstar), earrings (The Pumpkin Coven), George Michael pin (vintage), creepers (TUK Shoes)

I can't wait to say goodbye to 2016. I don't believe that a new year instantly means a better year, but I believe it's good to look ahead and keep going.

Thank you for reading, until next time!

  2. 2016 has been a lousy year in many ways. I have fond memories of watching music videos of George Michael and Wham! on MTV in the '80s. :)

    1. Yessssssssss! I was an MTV kid and love all their videos. Derek and I have been watching documentaries about our favorite 80s artists since everyone seems to be dying off :(

  3. So shocking and sad to hear about George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, and so many others that have passed in 2016. :(
