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.
