Baroque is always a musical term to my ear, initially. I was born and raised a musician in a classically inclined household, and so I grew up listening to my dad playing Bach at home and at church and my mom playing Vivaldi with the string quartet. Baroque is typically in competition with Romantic for my favorite era of classical music. Baroque was so rhythmical and lends itself to modern interpretations better than the other eras. Also, Bach has written some of the most achingly haunting and beautiful melodies I have ever heard. With this outfit, I wanted to pull out that David Bowie-esque rocker feel because he drew on Baroquian style often and it was and still is such a great time period to draw on, due to the excessive aesthetic the people of the era enjoyed. Baroque in architectural terms is all filagree and when it got to be too much, they called it Rococo. So with this trend, you just can't go to far. Adorn yourself to your heart's content!
Anyway, that's my ramblings on Baroquian things lol. I know the literature and art are a big deal too, but for me, it's the era when music was invented and let's be honest, that's a bigger deal.
