Gotta be honest here and confess that the song itself was a bit of a grower, but as soon as I saw the video I was SOLD! Fun fact: Gaga in Versace is a good thing -

My favourite look is of Gaga in the iconic vintage 90s Versace silk shirt, and apparently she's now vowed to wear nothing but Versace for 2 months after Donatella gave her a key to the family vault. Can you say WELL JEL?

I am ALL FOR this look on Gaga - just feels like she was made to rock it... Observe:

I mean, yes it's garish, loud, mental, tacky, fabulous, ghetto and weird, but that's why we all love her, right?

So anyway this look reminded me of a few things I'd favourited over on Etsy a while back but then promptly forgot all about. Check out these Edge of Glory-esq treasures:

The more I look at this shirt the more I'm like, I MUST HAVE IT! For Godsake it's got a giraffe on the back. Come on, that's amazing! Yup, defo gonna get this.

An actual Versace shirt from the 90s. I want this so badly it hurts, but it's like £150. Click to enlarge this photo and see what I mean though - stunning!

Even though I just bought that Zara backpack (which is actually kind of similar now I come to think of it, at least in terms of shape, zip and studs, hmmm...) this is also making me foam at the mouth with bag-lust.


I'm predicting somewhat of a resurgence in this vintage Versace-inspired look thanks in part to Gaga but also in response to the news that they''ll be the next big designer to collaborate with H&M for Autumn. I'm 
pumped for the studded bodycon leather that I've heard rumours of... And, well, it's got to be better than last year's Lanvin collab, right? *shudder*

Anyway, what do you guys think of this look? Should I buy that shirt? I mean, I probably will anyway, but will y'all disown me if I do?


Oh, and just cos I watched it yesterday and it was HILARIOUS, here's a few quotes from that seminal 90s teen flick, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and a brilliant photo of Hilary Swank looking like a goon. Happy Friday!

Kimberly "Buffy? What's your sitch? You're acting like the thing from another tax bracket."

Pike: "Buffy, you're the guy. You are the chosen guy."
Buffy: "Right. I'm the chosen one. And I choose to be shopping."

"Does the word "duh" mean anything to you?"

"All I want to do is graduate from high school, go to Europe, marry Christian Slater, and die. Now it may not sound too great to a sconehead like you, but I think it's swell. And you come along and tell me I'm a member of the hairy mole club so you can *throw* things at me? "

Kimberly [while having a fight with Buffy]: "Get out of my facial!"

Versace + Gaga = fate.

Definitely get the shirt! It's farrrr too amazing to pass up on!!!
Versace & H&M = Cannot wait.
Though I doubt there will be anything left because I will undoubtedly be in uni all day that day and by the time I'm done it will all be gone. Sad face.

Much Love
