If I mixed the piano tie with the sheet music scarf to make a little 'fashion music' would that be funny or tragic?

HoneyBunny said...

I love love love music, so it's definitely for me! I guess I could have my top five consist only of Placebo albums:DD;)

Oooooo, I really like your picks!

Ahah, great idea ! I love it when mode & design are together !!
For the albums it's really TOO difficult !!

lauh-ren said...

okay, that watch is awesome. i just might have to purchase it for myself! and Band of Horses are amazing. As for top five albums, ahhh that is hard because they are constantly changing but they would probably be:

Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
The Killers - Day & Age
Muse - Absolution
Meiko - Meiko
Across the Universe Soundtrack

Allison said...

I love these pictures - the scarf is just lovely!
And your top 5 picks are wonderful - I LOVE Springsteen :) And seriously, can Justin Timberlake ever do wrong?!

What do you think of the current season of ANTM? I don't know why, but Tyra Banks just annoys me now - I used to absolutely love that show, but now I feel like I have no toleration for her!

erika sorocco said...

That cassette purse is adorable. And your taste in music? Perfection. Band of Horses and The Shins are two of my favorite artists. I also love:

-The Virgins
-Amy Winehouse
-The Beatles
-Elton John

Those are my Top 5, I believe. :)

Seeker said...

Great top 5 yours!!!

Mine well... must think, I love so much music that I think I just can't find only 5.

Hope you're having a gorgeous day, dear

Hemaly said...

Those little tie-scarves are so cute!

Ariella said...

How wonderful. I love piano and music notes themed clothing.

Hey Carrie. What a cool post. I'm a big fan of Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The U.S.A." is one of my favorite albums of all time. It was one that I listened to constantly back when I was growing up. Have a great week. Cheers!

I bought a Flud watch while I was in Toronto! Loved Ruffian this season.


Unknown said...

SO cute! I love the little boom box/cassette tape baggies... and the musical notes scarves are adorable, a vast improvement to the keffiyah scarves of last season which in my humble opinion come off as slightly ignorant. Although I could get called out for wearing a musical pattern scarf when it is revealed that I don't know how to play a note!!

Bradford said...

having boom box memories. did CC ever have one on her shoulder?;)
