Bjork has recently come out with some new music… along with a new look, which is always beyond the reaches of common aesthetics, even for performers. It got me thinking about how much of an effect Bjork had on my own personal aesthetic. Which over the course of my life is really quite profound, I really don’t know what I would be like if it weren’t for the Sugarcubes.
I would still be me, of course, but videos like ‘Birthday’ inspired my personal style throughout my teenage years, the years when you’re still trying to figure out where you fit. And I really liked the fact that she didn’t fit, and it was ok. I had never seen someone who was so unique and completely unapologetic for it. It was so refreshing living in a world of cookie cut houses that you could be just who you were. That’s why I loved Bjork’s style so much, and I’m guessing that’s why we all love her so much.
Upon watching the video on YouTube, I haven’t seen in years, it occur ed to me that I still really love what she’s wearing there, and I could probably find something like that quite easily… This dress from Free People, is a lot like the dress she’s wearing in the video. You can pair it with a long sleeve tee, which you can find just about anywhere…. but this dress, is simple and super cute! : )
