Rock and Roll is such a classic look to me. I think it's because black never quite goes out of style. And we certainly love our icons to be on the rebellious side. And even though I realize it's actually a classic look, forever on the cutting edge, the very definition of cool....I can't help but feel really uncomfortable playing the part.
I think it's because rock star clothing tends to be tight and shiny and sexy, while I myself am a wallflower. I don't like sexy looks on myself. I gravitate toward a sort of vintagey cutesy look. So every so often, probably once a month, I try to create a rocker look that's a bit more on the girly side.
And I always fail! haha!
It doesn't help that it makes me strike actual "poses". awkward, unflattering me!
This outfit started with the silver brocade tulip skirt. I knew it has cute rocker girl possibilities and I wanted to try the look without incorporating any pink at all. I added up zip up legging as much for warmth as the rock factor. My blouse has a bra hook closure that you can't really see here. Then of course the most important part was the high heeled ankle boots!
I took a close up of the skirt so you could really see the brocade. Otherwise it just looks like metallic shiny crap.
