Oh yes, we all love Hot Topic, sandwiched between an Abercrombie and a Hollister, they are our shining light, our only glimmer of hope, in a mall filled with preppy and self-indulgent clothes, but the fact that they are the ubiquitous symbol of scene fashion, doesn’t mean that they haven’t had their misses…
The gold phase:
Just last season someone over at our favorite retailer decided that the words “goth” “emo” and “indie” translated as “gold” “hip hop” and “gangster” and not even our impulse to love all things shiny could save these travesties of fashion:
, hot topic
, naruto jacket
, studded belts
, stupid shirts
, ugly patterns

Since the beginning of time, or at least since the start of the 20th century, there has been a hu-bub about the phrase, “emo”.
Many would argue to believe that it is a,
“way of life”
“state of mind”
Sadly, many people’s minds have been bent by society and all of its lies towards the untrue idea of these definitions.
I get asked the question, “what is emo?” on a frequent basis. Most of the time by curious parents who have no idea what on earth it is.
What I tell them, is that “emo” is a genre of music, and if their mind has already been tainted by the world’s outlook of the word, i also tell them that it in no way describes someone who is depressed, cuts themself, or wears black. It usually takes them a while to get that through their head, if it even does.
Now, if you’re still confused, I’ve found a series of four videos that explain what “emo” is rather nicely. I recommend you checking them out, favoriting them, commenting them… whatever. It’s your choice.
Take care. <3
