You’ve got the love

I know I’ve been missing from a while and I know that a lot of work or just the bad weather are no excuse. So I will just let this pass and get to the main idea of this post. What is your main source of inspiration? And not just for the way you dress. But the inspiration that can help you make out exactly who you are. For me, one of my powerful sources is music. As long as I can remember I loved music. I got lost into the lyrics and as a child I used to invent my own songs and sang them while I was alone at home. dress/ Pimkie leather jacket / Zara bag

My father is to blame for this passion. We used to have this old radio in the kitchen that would be open in the morning playing Queen, Dire Straits, Phil Collins, Bryan Ferry, The Cure and Bruce Springsteen and every weekend we would listen to rock ballads and music from the 40s, 50s, 60s & the 70s.We would play anything and that made me have a deep love for music – whatever the rhythm.
Now, that I’m all grown up I have this weird nostalgia that they don’t make music like they used to. Or maybe it’s just because we move so fast, there are too many songs and mostly bad ones out there and they get old so fast and we lose interest in everything almost immediately. [sad face]
That’s why I picked “You’ve got the love” as a title. Because, after all, you have the power to change and to make things happen. You can get inspiration from the past [The Source feat Candi Staton 1986] and use it to create the best version of you here and now [Florence and The Machine 2009]

Care este principala voastra sursa de inspiratie? Si  nu ma refer doar la inspiratia pentru felul in care va imbracati. Vorbesc despre tot ce va ajuta sa va cunoasteti mai bine, sa va construiti asa cum vreti sa fiti. Pentru mine, o sursa extrem de importanta a fost mereu MUZICA. De cand ma stiu am iubit muzica. Ma pierdeam in versuri si imi inventam singura melodiile mele pe care le cantam atunci cand eram singura acasa.

Tatal meu este cel care mi-a insuflat aceasta pasiune. Cand eram mici (eu si sora mea) aveam un radio in bucatarie care statea deschis mereu. Dimineata incepea cu Queen, Dire Straits, Phil Collins, Bryan Ferry, The Cure si Bruce Springsteen, iar in weekend ascultam balade rock si muzica veche din anii ’40, ’50, ’60 si ’70. Ascultam orice si tocmai asta m-a facut sa iubesc muzica atat de mult, indiferent de ritm si stil.
Acum am aceasta nostalgie cum ca muzica nu mai este deloc ca alta data. Totul se face pe banda rulanta, sunt mult prea multe melodii si nici nu avem timp sa digeram bine un cantec, ca apare altul.
Cu gandul la ideea de inspiratie si la ce a fost si ce va fi – am pus tilul “You’ve got the love”. Pana la urma, puterea de a schimba ceva sta in fiecare dintre noi. Poti sa iti aduni inspiratia din trecut [The Source feat Candi Staton 1986] si sa o folosesti pentru a construi cea mai buna varianta a TA astazi, acum! [Florence and The Machine 2009]

the seismograph of chic . . . [whose] most famous creation turned out to be herself.”  > Newsweek about Diana Vreeland
