The Dramatis Personae-- DJ Barbi
While I say I don't fit in to any subcultural categories, it's probably a bit of a lie. If I could go all out, all of the time, I'd be an electroclash girl all of the way. For someone who is a fan of all the 80s had to offer, electroclash was a blessing in disguise-- Finally, a way to be hip and ahead of the times!
So this edition of The Dramatis Personae focuses on DJ Barbi a femme fatale tour de force shaking up and down the music scene. What I love about DJ Barbi's style (musical and fashionable) is her ability to take the basics, dress them up with accessories to create an image and sound that is completely tight and all her own. From the American Apparel dresses paired with boxy sneakers, long chains, and neon earrings, to the designs shaved in to the side of her head, DJ Barbi has a style that can be imitated, but hardly recreated.
One of her signature looks that are all over her Myspace page, that I'm oddly crazy about-- her nails! Who does that anymore? Each finger is this little piece of art straight out of Earth Girls are Easy:
I'm not a nail polish kind of girl, but I can't help but love these, and think, maybe... just maybe, I could keep polish on my fingers for that kind of flashback look. Meg, I'm dying to know what these nails say about her!
