Dexys Midnight Rediscoverer’s

The bandana is back! (for my neck at least)

I’m at an age now where I can recount being an ’emo’, with mixed emotions, (touches of embarrassment, hints of fondness and lashings of nostalgia). During the early-mid naughties it was in part, a socially accepted norm, to be an ’emo.’

One fundamental part of my uniform during those heady times, was my red bandana. I swore by my red bandana. It was always round my neck worn like a cowboy/wannabe gangster, or folded over and donned round my noggin, a la 50’s pin-up style. Sometimes, even tied to another bandanna and worn as a belt! How kooky(!) *sigh*

ANYWAY, I visited my parents last weekend and stumbled upon the forgotten, dusty gem of a neckerchief and decided to bring it back to life once more, and tie this simple outfit together with a pop of colour at the neck and striking orange woollen coat that I unearthed in a small town (always the best kind) charity shop for nine whole English pounds and 50 pence.

Not forgetting my new Mango black jean flares which I absolutely adore and have worn 4 days in a row this week already. I’m starting to think my work colleagues may think I binned all my other trousers and have since sworn to wear these forever and ever amen. (Maybe I might just do that?!)

 

What will be your next rediscover?
