I have been trying to do a pretty in punk (pink) ClaustroClothic Shoot ALL YEAR, but I couldn’t get it right. Either my hair wasn’t on point, or something was off, or I didn’t have time to take pictures and what better time to do it than during the winter punk fashion season! Tis the season to layer up your outfits to keep from getting sick. Ya see, winter for me as a photographer means overcast, amazing snow photos, hot chocolate consultations! Winter for me as a fashionista means better wear your long sleeve sweatshirts and long johns because it’s coming. But tonight! We are celebrating a dearly awesome friend’s birthday so I had to get prepared! Punk pink style.
Special thanks: The biggest of thanks goes out to Renee Jordan. We kept talking about “RedVember”, November being the month I wore all red in honor of the amazing job she did on my hair. That’s soon to come. But today (Tonight as I’m writing this) it’s pink.
“Winter Punk Fashion” What Inspired This Outfit?
Remember my ClaustroClothic about wearing your least favorite color? Yeah, that’s me and pink. We don’t exactly agree the way we should. I mean I leave seeing it, but it’s not really my gig. That changed when I got my shoes back in February when I went down to Florida. I pretty much became obsessed with having to make this one outfit that I wore anytime I felt pink. Shout outs to both Reiko and Ravens and Rockers, the place I got both my shoes and my goggles from.
How’d You feel When You Put It On?
This is my fifty billionth time trying on this outfit and every time, I try something different. This time it was the strutting. I was strutting around like I owned everything. I also felt really warm. The entire point of this outfit was to be able to look cute in the outfit without freezing my whole body off and somehow after eight layers (Yeah, you read that right), I had it right.
What is the best part of the outfit?
The vest. I mean, don’t get me wrong. THE ENTIRE OUTFIT IS BOSS! Especially considering that the shirt is a gift of mine from an ex-girlfriend who I loved very dearly. Yet, the vest was given to me by an amazing artist along with quite a bit of plaid fabric. She nearly brought tears to my eyes. Syetha, if you’re reading this you’re absolutely amazing for sharing such a lovely piece of artwork with me but then letting me have it? Too kind.
What was the most expensive piece of the outfit, where did it come from and how much was it?
Ready? Okay. The shoes is what you would’ve thought would’ve been the most expensive bit. NO. Not at all. They were on this insane clearance at Raven and Rockers. The goggles weren’t and I think they were about $35. Well worth it considering goggles have been on my list of things to buy forever and they match everything I’m wearing!
Wanna see me do a specific look for my next ClaustroClothic!
Leave a comment below and you can literally be as specific or vague as you want. I love a good challenge. Also, wanna see this outfit in action? Also, happy belated birthday to Ray, (the only man in the photo) for throwing such an amazing schindig. That’s the most fun I’ve had since Florida. <3
