I want my M-Tee-V!
Fashion & music have long been besties but I think the launch of MTV in 1981 really solidified their relationship. It suddenly brought the two elements into our living room and exposed us to a whole new side of entertainment.
That relationship of fashion & music is still relevant today but our source has shifted from television to social media, making our favorite artists just a click away. Keep reading to learn how they’ve inspired my outfit!

🛍 SHOP MY LOOK 🛍
I consider myself a pop culture connoisseur, not only of the ’80s but also of modern times. Celebs definitely influence my style!
10 years ago I saw Rihanna wearing a pair of gold bamboo earrings and I shortly lucked out finding some knock-offs from Walmart – the very ones in this outfit post! The style is so popular that they continue to be imitated year after year, like these ones from Forever 21.
You might also notice I’m wearing a tiny bat ring. It’s a humorous nod to the infamous Ozzy Osbourne incident where he allegedly bit the head off a bat. Though I bought it for more personal reasons, I thought it fit in perfect with this music-inspired look.
The rest of my outfit pays tribute to merch acquired from concerts like my (tragically modern) MTV t-shirt.
There’s only so many times you can wear a band shirt with jeans before it gets old, right? So I chose to dress up my graphic t-shirt by wearing it over a matching leopard print maxi dress and tying a small knot at my natural waist for a little flair.
Talk about versatili-tee! 😉
