I recently just finished reading Pink Noises: Women on Electronic Music and Sound by Tara Rodgers. I’m not super-into electronic music, but I love reading music writing and journalism by women.

The book was composed of interviews split into six different sections including “Nature and Synthetics” and “Alone/Together”. I thought it was excellent, and though I was not familiar with most of the musicians interviewed, I was fascinated by their creative process and interaction with their craft. Definitely a must-read for any creative.
Fashion-wise, I was totally inspired by the simple photograph of Jessica Rylan on the cover. Rylan is an artist and performer, and invents her own electronic music instruments–doesn’t get much cooler than that.
The photograph on the cover is taken from the same performance as the one above, and I just thought she looked so cool. I love what appears to be a super-dark purple tweed flecked with colour, and rose blouse. The silver chain bracelet is simple (no doubt to not interfere with her performance) but just enough to make an impression. Here is a super-simple riff on her outfit below.
