Fashion Over Reason: Bruce in the Dam

Bruce in the Dam

Bruce Springsteen sleeveless tee, rock n' roll vibes, Amsterdam, Bottega Veneta intrecciato leather cross body bag, Rag & Bone Harrow boots

The trifecta of internationalism: a Canadian in Amsterdam wearing an American icon on her shirt. Could I be more intercultural?! All kidding aside, the thought of this crossing makes me smile and just reminds me that owning a passport is the gateway to global mélange.

Wearing Bruce on my chest is obviously a display of my affections, but I wish it were an original concert tee. I would never wear anyone whom I have no admiration for, even less so a copy of a vintage, but because Bruce is one my personal greats, there was no hesitation when I found this little slice of rock 'n roll Americana a couple of years back at everyone's favorite retail frenemy, Forever 21.

And while Bruce is a homeland hero, he's every bit universal. So does this count as me traveling to Amsterdam with him? I like to think that it is.

Love things like that, in the cosmo girl style (not exactly the magazine, but rather cosmopolitan in its original meaning :) )

Thank you very much for your comment yesterday, it felt good to know I wasn't the only one... x
