I'm watching seasons 4 and 5 of Buffy, because being alone all day (hi, Erik!) makes me miss my hip and attractive fictional friends. I've discovered that watching BTVS is bad for my fashion sense. I always end up going, "Do I have any oversized, furry-looking sweaters? I don't think I do. What a pity. And where are my floor-length denim skirts? My ankles feel so naked."
Also, I really, really want a pair of leather pants. I know, I'm no 90 pound Sarah Michelle Gellar and I would look like a half-ton of fail in anything more skin-tight than jeans, but the craving is there. I want leather pants and a sequin top, and one of those dumb chokers with the big flowers on the side.
Edited to add:
Faith thinks I should own leather pants, but I question her credibility.
Mmmm, Buffy fashion. Even when it's become dated it still looks kinda awesome. I'm sad I didn't watch it during my teen years because I might have actually had a fashion sense if that had been the case!
And damn but do I want a pair of leather pants too. And the jewelry! Aw man. I would join in your hanging out with your hip and attractive fictional friends any day.
*sad that this is my only Buffy icon currently*
I'm waiting for the nineties to swing back into fashion, but it may take a while. Then, you and I can step out in our awesome leather pants, asymmetrical blouses, and knee-length sweater coats! I think I may start spontaniously killing vampires if I get a sweater-coat.
I was just thinking about one of those sweater coats (dusters, I think they were called?) the other day and how fun it would be to have one, though I remember scorning them at the time. But a little lightweight one would be perfect now that I'm in southern California where it gets chilly at most and you don't need anything heavy.
I fully expect to come into my Slayer strength upon the purchase of a sweater duster. Unfortunately I have not seen many in stores lately. Leather pants are sadly lacking in most outlets as well. ;_; I think I still have an ankle skirt around somewhere though!
I recently had a sweater coat, though I think I was calling it a trench-sweater or some such sillyness. Thrift stores have them! They also have leather pants, and other Buffy-like accoutrements. I don't know if they have those silly flower-chokers or necklaces of tiny, shiny beads, but I'll have to look, to complete the outfit.
I blame you for the dream I had last night, in which my school almost fell into the Hellmouth (which was pretty cool because there was a good thirty seconds of free-falling and that weightless feeling) before being carried away by helicopters, one of my anatomy professors was basically Giles, and I was, of course, Buffy, being pressed into service for today, which is supposed to be THE apocalypse, apparently. :-P
I dreamed about BTVS last night, too! Except I blame watching Buffy for a solid five hours before bed.
I wish my school would fall into the Hellmouth. I have an exam tomorrow, and a good catastrophe would probably delay us until I had time to study.
Nope, Faith is totally untrustworthy. She would tell me to wear leather pants, just to snicker at me later. She'd be all, "Whatsamatter, E? You look awesome! Here, have some body glitter! And a bustier! No, you don't look like a hooker! You're five by five, baby!"
And I'm like, shut up, Faith. Don't make me kick you into a piece of rebar or something, because I will.
