Miss Atomic Bomb Inspo

Miss Atomic Bomb Inspo

I was totally inspired by u/peppermintys [post earlier] (https://www.reddit.com/r/femalefashionadvice/comments/94tr8m/give_me_a_song_and_ill_make_a_mini_inspo_album/) where they’re making inspo albums based on songs, and I suddenly had all kinds of ideas. I was totally that kid who would make soundtracks to go along with her favorite books (ask me about my Hunger Games soundtrack; it was lit) and I’ve always been a very musical person. Songs are kind of like an auditory mood board, so the idea of creating visual fashion inspiration from a song felt like a very natural extension.

I’ve been really digging [Miss Atomic Bomb] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qok9Ialei4c) by The Killers recently, and I knew I had to design an inspo board around the girl in the song. She’s independent and a little edgy, but doesn’t push the boundary into eclectic or androgynous. While most of her style is built around sharpness and simplicity, it also all has strong notes of romanticism and nostalgia. She’s a little bit of everything, because how the song’s protagonist sees her–youthful energy and heartbreak and wistfulness all in one.

[Here] (https://pin.it/egqoss52s2famo) is the Pinterest board based on the song.

I’ve never done an inspo board before, and literally created a new pinterest profile for it, which I think says something about how excited I was about this idea. CCW for sure–I’d love to hear what y’all think!

    Wow, I’m a huge Killers fan and was very surprised to see Miss Atomic Bomb here. I think you were able to capture the edgy romanticism you mentioned in your OP.

    Loved the look of that music video and the fashion of Shot at the Night

    I love the song, and love the Killers. On top of that, a lot of the outfits from your pin board look like my style – I literally own that rust Madewell skirt! This makes me happy 🙂

    I think you nailed it! The music video always makes me think of flowy dresses that move with the wind, mixed with worn leather. Like a refined American Southwest look.

    I was a bit concerned as to what this was going to be reading the title.

    Today is the 73rd anniversary of the Atomic bomb dropping on Hiroshima Japan….

    Great job u/aloneh95 ! I totally love The Killers and i think you captured the essence of the video (I can see myself riding a car through the desert in a hot night in that midi skirt). I bet your Hunger Games soundtrack is badass as well.
