Often at times, be it an event, a holiday, or any extreme type of social setting you can begin to loose yourself. After a few hours, you start to compare yourself to others around you, you loose that confidence to stand on the table and dance like no one’s watching, to take that shot, to sing that song etc. well here’s how to rise from that sinking feeling.
We’ve experienced the thrill of rockstars gallivanting our screens and front pages, and been amazed. We would look to the likes of the indie sleaze era and stars partying on MTV, and we would dream to be them.
Remember the excitement when “Pam and Tommy” hit the screens on Disney+ or when we immersed ourselves in the rebellious journey of the Sex Pistols through their captivating biopic? These shows transported us back to an era filled with scandal, recklessness, and endless inspiration. It was a time when visionaries like Dame Vivienne Westwood and Pamela Anderson set the stage for fearless self-expression.
I like to think my personality was born from imagining I was a groupie on tour with the two of them.
The spirit of indie sleaze is experiencing a powerful resurgence and I, for one, couldn’t be more thrilled. The self expression that comes from dressing in such styles is incredible. When I slip into a jeweled Ed Hardy tee or slide into a pair of sleek leather trousers, I’m transported to an era where your look was a bold statement—a time when conformity was left behind, and vibrant self-expression took center stage.
Gone are the days of trying to blend in with the crowd, diluting our unique personalities to fit a mold. It’s time to embrace the freedom to go about life as if we’ve just struck up a deal for the front cover of the rolling stone.
So, the next time you prepare for a night out, dare to channel your inner rockstar. Embrace the leather trousers that add a touch of vintage glam whilst your chest is jewelled in chrome hearts. Let yourself take inspiration from such bold people and their bolder sense of individuality, tonight, the city is your stage, and you are the headline act.
Embrace the spirit of not giving a fuck, and paint the town red with freedom! Let’s make the most out of every opportunity because life is for living, and if it takes envisioning yourself partying with the likes of Alexa Chung or Kate Moss till the early morning hours, then let that become your reality.
