my pinch of rock + ode to my shoes

i love dresses. i love vintage. i love lace and embroidered tops. i love the 40’s mixed with the boho 60’s. but i also love my share of rock — just a pinch is all good for me. i love (and hate at the same time) that when people see me, they’d immediately assume that i go out, go clubbing and am super into dance hits but would be surprised and somehow confused at knowing my music choices. ever since i sang back-up for my cousin’s indie rock band sheila and the insects (yes, my cousin is ian zafra), i have been hooked into new wave, punk, electronic and indie rock music. (a bit of influence came from having dated someone in a rock band too..LOL) i look for those quirky and captivating beats and the deep, sarcastic and even smart-ass lyrics. 
the smiths | the killers | kings of leon | temper trap | the national | broken social scene | band of horses | the ting tings | keane | coldplay | the cure | the honorary title | smashing pumpkins | death cab for cutie
these are just some of my favorite bands and they make sucky days bearable for me. 
now about my shoes…welp, i think it’s dead. my first ever forever 21 shoes (which is a big deal for me as we don’t have it here in PI) is dying. they say in fashion, we need a bit of sacrifice. it was sacrificed indeed. it didn’t die in vain i assure you. it served it’s purpose by being my friend’s shoes in a recent photo shoot we did.  just us friends, having fun. even with my non-dslr camera. for the photos, you’d have to hold on to your seats. (or not..hehe)
(ps. and to my friend, if you do read this — do not feel guilty. i’m gonna’ miss those shoes but they are replaceable. friends are not.)
