shoot some heroin and fuck with the stars

Since the accident, I've spent most of my time trying to finish the 800-page biography of John Lennon written by Philip Norman. It's no secret that I have a soft spot for The Beatles, especially John Lennon. As much as I question whether or not John was an Asiaphile and if Yoko is crazy/was responsible for breaking up the greatest band of the 20th century, there's no denying John & Yoko's power as lasting fashion icons.

Fedoras, large rimmed glasses, long dresses in neutral colors, fur, and headbands are all items that are currently in hot demand. But in addition to their sartorial wisdom, they also had a few messages that seem strangely pertinent to today:

Imagine all the people,
Living life in peace..
You may say that I'm a dreamer,
But I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will live as one.


  1. thanks for your comment!
    i appreciated it a lot...
    i've been thinking a lot about fashion blogging lately and am currently in the process of re-thinking what I want to do and show. inspiration is steadily creeping my way....

    and THIS IS CRAZY RANDOM, but your "Beatles"/John Lennon post is probably just a coincidence but I am currently writing a paper on The Beatles for one of my courses right now.... It's due tomorrow and I'm going crazy trying to crank out the words... But in the end, I love The Beatles, so it's all good!

  2. There's no doubt they were one stylish couple.

  3. i took a History of the Beatles course last spring semester and it was amazing. my only quarrel with Yoko is the eerie lack of facial expression on film and in pictures.
