This morning I woke to the sad and disturbing news that British soul-singer Amy Winehouse passed away in her London apartment early Saturday morning. While details are still developing I will be doing a style tribute on her early next week. She shaped my young years in more ways than I care to admit, but her music always penetrated my bones and touched my soul. It just spoke to me, and I am truly heartbroken that she could not beat her demons and overcome her drug addictions.
The raven hair, the beehive, the eyeliner, the pouty plum lips and the tattoos all completed this modern day soul and rock icon. Rest in peace, Amy Winehouse, you didn’t have to wake up alone.
