Looking for Inspiration? Patti Smith has it all.

Singer, poet & song-writter. She was friends with Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplehorpe's muse, and inspiration for great musicians such as Michael Stipe (R.E.M). First it was her music I was only in love with, but then that love grew more intense. See, I have the habit of collecting pictures of artists (usually musicians). She was wearing all these masculine clothes with such attitude that really really amazed me and it was inevitable to fall in love with the personality she shows trough her style. I mean, the ripped or rolled up jeans, the baggy tees, the lace up boots, the bowler hat, the socks over her trousers, the blazers... isn't she perfect?


PS. The handsome guy next to her in a couple of pictures is the talented photographer I talked you about a couple lines above, Robert Mapplehorpe.

Weirdly, she's never had a huge appeal for me. I kind of appreciate her from a great distance.

You're right. Sometimes I get really obsessed with one person's style - at the moment it's Clémence Poésy - and Patti Smith might just be the next. I love her music too.

About your last comment on my post: No, my school isn't religious either. There are also atheists or people who have other religions at our school. Just for the Christians there is Religion class, and for the atheists or the ones that have other religions there is Ethics class.
And I bought my shoes at a shopping centre in Prague! I saw similar ones at a shoe shop here in Germany too, they were by a Spanish brand. But my shoes are by a Polish brand.
