Set The Fire To The Third BarPosted: January 8, 2013
It’s been about five or six years since I spent a proper winter at home, and I don’t remember it ever being this cold. Also, our house is built for coolness and airiness, not warmth, so it’s not that much better inside either. My solution? Wear all the warm colors in my closet – toned down with some black and grey, of course, I don’t want to look like a walking electric heater. Speaking of electric heater, here’s a story about the titular song: even though it’s one of my favorite Snow Patrol songs, for the longest time I thought it was called “Set Fire to the Third Bar” and thought it was about actual fire-starting (figuratively, like maybe their passion sets fire to the bar where they’re meeting or something.) It wasn’t until recently that I found out “the third bar” referred to a bar in an electric heater, not a pub. Yeah, some hardcore fan I am.
Sweater: Gap (thrifted), Jeans: Wet Seal (thrifted),
Coat: Forever21, Brooch: gift, Boots: Vietnamese shop
Scarf: I honestly don’t know. It’s not mine. I grabbed it from the hook in the front hall because it’s the right color and it wouldn’t shed all over my coat like my wool scarves
