ClaustroClothic #29: Gals and Roses // Alternative Fashion
It’s no secret that I love the band Guns N’ Roses. Hell, I have a whole ClaustroClothic devoted to it. However, for years I pretended as though I didn’t love roses… Rose print. Rose flowers. Rose gold, any of it. As I transition into my late adulthood, I’ve come to learn that if you stop pretending with yourself.. you’ll be able to get more of what you wanted..
What makes this outfit special?
Every bit of this outfit was bought at different times. Alternative fashion for me is never about what you’ve got but what you can put together with what you’ve got. Some of my greatest outfits were formed by accident. The sheer robe was the first purchase. It was bought from Discovery Clothing a little over a year ago. Then came the bralette which is also from Discovery but from a completely different store in a different side of Chicago.
The skirt is the final addition, coming from a secondhand store right around the corner from my house.
It’s insane how I saw it and the rest of the outfit came to life before my eyes.
It’s like.. When you know, you know.
The Shoes //
Alright, I love love love Iron Fist. I’ve been putting these shoes with so many outfits lately. I don’t even care how many people are like “You wear those shoes all the time!” You damn right I do. They’re comfortable, they’re the type you can get away with in a business professional look. I simply love them.
That’s the look!
