HAPPY REX MANNING DAY!
Ok it's not actually Rex Manning Day until April the 8th, but I can't wait that long! This outfit is inspired by Corey Mason, the speed freak with the mis-matching underwear and desperate love for that bouffant himbo, Rex Manning. She was also the girl I longed to be, and I adore her as much now as I did as a 12 year old. The colours of this outfit aren't right - it should be a blue jumper and a yellow and blue skirt, but I wanted to make it my own, and also make it a bit less halloween-costume.
The lipstick is Rimmel Coffee Shimmer - they still make it! - and it's 100% authentic. Jumper is from River Island. I've had it for ages but you can get a similar here, skirt is from Noisy May, and the boots are my Vagabonds. Laces undone, of course.
I wrote a big piece about the music and style of Empire Records a while back, it's available for reading over here.
