If the title of this look sounds familiar, that’s ‘cause it’s the first line from Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love� from 1969, which you probably love. Or not.

This jacket is so glam rock it reminds me of Adam Lambert. You know Adam, the guylinered runner-up on this year’s American Idol. Swear to God, I cried so hard when he didn’t win, I must’ve smudged my own guyliner and ended up looking like Gene Simmons in stage makeup. Just goes to show that people are not ready for a little, um, edge. Which is not to diss the Kris Allen fans—Kris is kinda, um, cute. But, I’m sorry, the way Adam sang “Whole Lotta Love� on rock ‘n’ roll week, and the way he performed “Beth� by KISS during the final episode, that was genius—and don’t even get me started about the clothes!

By the way, this jacket already came embellished when I snatched it out of a thrift store bin—I just added a few studs here and there, trimmed the sleeves to make them a little slimmer, and then soaked the whole thing in dark rum for a week to give it an antiquated, worn out look. I can’t wait to wear it again, when “me and the boys will be playin’ all night.�

Location: Cebu, Philippines

Currently listening to: Well, “Whole Lotta Love� by Led Zeppelin, and “Beth� by KISS

Angelo Kangleon
Thanks Ema! The thing about this jacket is it's not something you can wear, like, 5 times in a year. Maybe just once a year. LOL. Looking for an excuse to wear it again. :)
