Yesterday I was convinced I had managed to ride out my jet-lag from the US. Until about 4am, that is, when I found myself completely wide awake in bed with nothing to do. I'm not sure if it was a combination of jet-lag, over exhaustion or stress about my up-coming publication/The Big Move To London but there was no way my body was going to let me go to back to sleep, so I slipped my iPad out of its case and found myself watching back to back episodes of Buffy. I've just got up to Season Four now - in my mind the best, when Willow really comes into her own both as a mega Wicca and an even more mega lesbosayswhatnow. And a funny thing happened: this morning I found myself yearning to dress like her.
It might be her old high-school uniform of loose cord trousers, cropped tops, fuzzy sweaters and backpacks, or the witchy student look with pseudo-occult prints, ethnic vibes, choker necklaces and lots of transparent layering but I WANT TO DRESS LIKE WILLOW ROSENBERG GODDAMNIT. Thank goodness there's a Tumblr just for freaks like me (update: there's another!). There's even a wiki on how to become her.
Does anybody else see JW Anderson in Willow's style? I can definitely wear my Anderson tie-die sweater, and I think one of the new season Acne ones would do well for this look too. But I really need to get some old-school 90s chokers. Help me. Please.
With my dip-dyed hair I'm kind of feeling Tara too, so maybe I'm morphing into an all-in-one lesbian power couple? Who knows, maybe this is the next stage in my evolution...
