If the title of this look sounds familiar, thatâ€™s â€˜cause itâ€™s the first line from Led Zeppelinâ€™s â€œWhole Lotta Loveâ€� 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 yearâ€™s American Idol. Swear to God, I cried so hard when he didnâ€™t win, I mustâ€™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 fansâ€”Kris is kinda, um, cute. But, Iâ€™m sorry, the way Adam sang â€œWhole Lotta Loveâ€� on rock â€˜nâ€™ roll week, and the way he performed â€œBethâ€� by KISS during the final episode, that was geniusâ€”and donâ€™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 binâ€”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 canâ€™t wait to wear it again, when â€œme and the boys will be playinâ€™ all night.â€�
