Today is a day I wish I had a really long drive to make, because the new Taylor Swift album just dropped. Tonight millions of fans across the world are going to lock themselves in a room and reminisce on all their relationships, past and present gone good and gone bad, then gone good again only to leave you more heartbroken and bluer then you thought the first round. Then after the whole album is said and done before you apologize to your repeat button for the subsequent abuse it is going to receive from being hit so many times tonight, you’re going to wish Taylor Swift was your best friend so you can give her a hug, and then text all of your BFFs about how much you love the new album.
In typical me fashion, I have been preparing for this day since the last Taylor album dropped. But as the day got closer I could not help but find my fascination with the color red only nearly over power my life long love for pink. Something only my beloved T Swift could accomplish. But how else has Taylor influenced my personal style?
I’d like to give her credit for introducing me to cowgirl boots, but alas I’m the grandaughter of a real cowboy so I’ve been wearing those since before I could walk. But she did introduce me to the concept of rocking my boots with my favorite girly dress.
Recently, I can blame her for my obsession with red lipstick (although if I’m being completely honest that partially coincides with it officially being fall now.) Next time I visit one of my favorite hairstylists I’m going to ask for bangs, and I’m really really loving her Hampton inspired wardrobe lately. Seriously, does anyone else see her and Jackie O hanging along the coast in Cape Cod, and looking oh so fab doing so?
Taylor Swift must be commended for proving that sex does not have to be what sells and defines an artists’ success. She has proved since the beginning of her career that you can stay true to your self, and dress no different then the princess’ little girls grow up admiring anyways, and that’s in pretty dresses and pretty shoes.
Taylor, thank you. Just thank you.
