There is entirely too little "punk" on polyvore. I don't mean the bubblegum punk that you tend to see..."punk princess" and such...but I mean like...old school vivienne westwood or um...Heatherette, for instance. We need more ATTITUDE on polyvore.
So I decided that "change begins with me", and worked up a couple of sets with 'tude. This one, I just can't tell you how much I love that shirt. It's designed to be very slouchy, but the shoulder seams are "at" the shoulders, so it doesn't add too much width to the arms, which is always the problem with oversized things. I paired it with a, I think a cotton mini skirt. It could be jersey, for all I care, just so long as it isn't denim or leather. Grabbed the boots from style.com because they can't be beat for AWESOME footwear. The necessary punk accessories are here, but I tried to restrain myself. I wanted this to be accessible. I couldn't be happier with the hair though...THAT'S what I was looking for, for this outfit. Bad ass, but low maintainence (you know, no hair sprays and gels and glitter and gravity defying techniques).
This was frustrating, because I really wanted a throw back to the 80's and for whatever reason, I couldn't find what I wanted so...take the pink shirt and cut 3 forths of the bottom right off...then slash the neckline from the right side of the neckhole to the shoulder seem. And of course wear it over the black tank top. The necklace, garishly goes over it all, because Punk takes over everything. Anyone see "Sid and Nancy?" Remember when they go into their hotel room and spray paint all the art, and slash the furniture until it's properly punk? That's the idea...messing with order, taking control any way you can...inspiring, huh :)
