Hello October

October

October is here and it’s finally time for some warmer weather. I’m ready to break free of this winter mould I’ve been living in for so many months and I long for sun-drenched days and lingering summer evenings.

WHAT’S CURRENTLY INSPIRING ME

KAREN O
The feisty frontwoman of my all-time favourite band, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Everything about her is just so ridiculously cool, and her angst-filled vocals always manage to somehow haunt me. She’s truly a cool kid in her own right.

NICOLE RICHIE
Incredibly old but incredibly amazing photo of Nicole Richie. I think the high-waisted thing took a while for me to get used to, but now that I’ve come to terms with it, I want her shorts for summer. Oh, and her sunglasses.

YOUTH NOVELS
I just purchased Lykke Li’s debut album yesterday afternoon, and I have to say it is rather good. Think electronic pop with feeling. Her vocal ability is flawless and she has furthermore encouraged my recent infatuation with Swedish indie-pop. Very nice, indeed.

VOGUE AUSTRALIA NOVEMBER 2008
My impulse magazine buys at the supermarket never fail; they always manage to pick up the usual traipsing-behind-my-grumpy-mother that usually goes on when I make the mistake of accompanying her to pick up some groceries. It’s foolproof, I tell you!

Happy October, all. I have a good feeling about this month.
