Puffed up and bruised

I got my wisdom teeth out yesterday, which means I am confined to my couch for the next week due to my hilarious bruised chipmunk face.

I put this outfit together a few days ago after watching Sid & Nancy. To be honest I wasn't terribly blown away by the movie, I though the script was poorly written, and I'm sorry but Nancy's voice almost drove me to tears it was so whyyynnnnnneeeeey! What I did love about the movie, however, was the clothes! I've always had a rather large soft, squishy spot for punk, so I adored the leapord print mini's, ripped fishnets, leather everything, messy/shaved/died hair, stilettos and combat boots, piercings, dark red lips and ripped jackets.

I didn't want the outfit to be too costumey, as I've never really been a fan of being a part of a sub culture, but I think I kinda failed.

Tried it on with some jackets, because I thought this would work better in winter; firstly my mums old leather biker jacket, and then my dads old black denim jacket.

For fashion at school last session, we had to print three fabrics based around a sub culture (I chose punk), and this is my favourite:

I think this year I want to get further away from the hippy clothes I wore a lot of last year (although I'll never give up my florals!) and dress a little more punk. Although after seeing the fantastic clothes in Sherlock Holmes I'd also like to dress a little more masculine, although my generous hips may make that a bit tricky.


  1. Oh no! I feel for you,I had mine done too, but it's definitely for the better.
    I love the outfit you created and Sid and Nancy is a wicked inspiration ;)

    I have posted a picture inspired by MK necklaces, I would love you to have a look and tell me what do you think.

    See you soon.

  2. This is cool! I love the top, I have a soft spot for 'punk' as well. xx

  3. Thanks for commenting!

    I really admire how you put this look together. I was never really a fan of punk, but you did it so well! Kudos to you!

  4. I love the outfit, my favorite is with the denim shirt!!


  5. AWesome tee!


  6. Sid and Nancy! I've been meaning to watch it for such a long time, I should really get around to it.
