Musical Tag

I've been tagged by Fashion-Obsessed!
Here are the rules: List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre or the words or even if they are not any good, but they must be songs that you are enjoying right now and that are shaping your summer. Post these instructions on your blog along with your seven songs and then tag 7 other people to see what they are listening to!
Since almost everyone has done this tag, I thought I would change it up a little, so as it is not stale:
I am in love with music, and I am a musician. Music shapes my life so much more than I even realize. One very strong aspect about music is that it relates to my style. Seeing as this is a fashion blog, I have decided to follow the tag rules (by posting my 7 favourite songs of the moment) but along with that, I will add a fashionable photo of the band and explain how their music and style has influenced me.

1. The Only Living Boy In New York - Simon and Garfunkel

** I love their carefree style and folkloric feel. My fashion is heavily influenced by the folk and hippie styles **

2. These Days - Nico

** She is a hot blonde with an amazingly unique voice. She is rock chic with a touch of folksy softness. I am influenced by the blending of opposite styles, which in turn create something unique in it's own right. Her eyeliner is also to die for. **

3. Why Do You Let Me Stay Here - She & Him

** Who doesn't love Zooey Deschanel? I saw an interview with her and she is the same as I am. She dressed in party dresses as a child, loves the influence of the 1960s mod era, and needs a whole other house to hold all her dresses.**

4. With Arms Outstretched - Rilo Kiley

** Jenny Lewis, the front woman for Rilo Kiley is a divine dresser and an Indie queen. She is cute in everything she wears! Her eclectic blend of folk, rock, and country sound is mirrored by her eclectic clothing. How inspiring! (second photo from a Rilo Kiley concert I went to!) **

5. Under My Bed - Meiko

** Another folksy gal is Meiko, who proves to be eclectic in her own right, but also down to earth and laid back. Her penchant for the 1960s and 1970s styles keep me under the influence. **

6. Swimming Pools - Thao with the Get Down Stay Down
** Thao Nguyen is another indie darling who isn't afraid to dress the way she likes. She pairs simple garments with loud statement pieces in a playful and fun way. Having that ability is the foundation of a fashionable person! **

7. A Day In The Life - The Beatles

** need I say anything about the Beatles? They are my favourite band. And from Please Please Me all the way to Abbey Road, they continue to be one of my biggest inspirations. **

Today I went on a thrifting binge and found many many nice items. Photos will come shortly!!

Love Zooey Deschanel. I wish she was in more stuff.


Thanks for your comment. With all the Musical Tags flowing about, I got inspired to make my own collage on what I liked (since I love more than just 7!) Great post you have here too. And Zooey is fantastic. My younger cousin (who is turning 9 in August) looks just like "mini Zooey" creamy complexion large doe eyes. I hope she grows up to be just like her! <3
