We’ve got the punk, everybody’s got the punk!

Oi! Oi! Oi!

Today, punk is the name of the game, and to Nic and I that comes down to three things; individualism, protest, and a D.I.Y. mindset. We feel that these themes are especially important in light of recent events, finally bringing the issue of content theft to the forefront of our fashion community. This is something that has continually plagued designers, and not just in the fashion world as our friend and owner of Loft 3, Colleen Desmoulins, can attest to. As mine and Nic’s way of showing we care, we decree these punk themed outfits an official raised middle finger to content thieves everywhere, and a show of our support to the designers that make blogs like this one possible.

When I asked Nic “What should our next theme be?” and he replied unwaveringly “Punk.” I gulped, “Punk?”. But, I soon swallowed any reservation with the realisation that fashion is often about about pushing your boundaries to develop your own personal style and the end results are vicious!

I saw this hairstyle blogged quite a bit and was so pleased to be able to show off the blonde version. The texturing is spot on – Milla, I am SO one of those picky fair heads! I used a Ramones tee as the base for this outfit and combined some punk staples such as suspenders, fishnets, piercings (hers ‘n’ his closeups pictured above), and tartan print to further define the look in a bold palette of black, white, and red. The skirt shown above is actually two! I layered them to give some added volume with the tartan underskirt serving as a pseudo-taffeta. The black tights with one top rolled down perfectly accentuate the bright red pumps and I just couldn’t resist the tongue in cheek corporate black tie, because what is punk without a bit of humour?

I must say I was amazed at Nic’s arsenal of punk themed attire at the ready, all of which stemmed from his prized Sex Pistols tee. The plaid patched jacket plays to the D.I.Y. mindset and the fingerless gloves are perfect for a cig, unless of course you’re straight edge (but we all know cigs don’t count, right?). And of course, Nic can rock a pair of Converses, and the striped socks make it undeniably punk. Now, here’s the clincher – are you sitting down? Nic’s radass rolled up pants… are actually G.L.A.M capris. Yep, the women’s section. It’s become somewhat of an inside joke between us, but he’s gotten a lot less sensitive about his wardrobe secret, so if you see him in-world don’t hesitate to give him a good natured ribbing.
