Punk

Feeling like dressing a little more 'punk' lately. Probably has something to do with the lack of sunlight and stress from midterms (they really snuck up on me this time).

Here I'm wearing my trusty faux-leather F21 jacket over my drapey black F21 sweater and tee. On the bottom half I have my Zara chain belt, vintage leather mini, thigh-high socks, and overworn Payless boots.

I really want a more motorcycle style leather jacket that isn't too boxy (and not the ubiquitous UO version). Something like this:

On a side note: I'm always looking for fashion-related T.V. shows and movies which is one reason I became so obsessed with The Rachel Zoe Project.
One of my favorite 'fashiony' movies is Kamikaze Girls.
It stars Kyoko Fukada and Anna Tsuchiya as a "Lolita" and "Yankee" girl (respectively), who become friends and have all sorts of little adventures together. I definitely recommend this movie to anyone remotely interested in fashion and looking for some inspiration. It's fun and of course Anna Tsuchiya is kind of amazing <3

I seriously still can't believe you got those boots at PAYLESS! Amazing.

You look fantastic Starr, as you always do :)
And I know what you mean about getting a little bit more punk rock when the days are shorter and you're exhausted...I go through the EXACT same thing. Nonetheless, it's a good look so whatever :)
