The weather’s finally breaking but just before it does, let me give you one more winter look! I remember when I first starting getting into alternative fashion and I only had one pink item in my whole closet. Two years ago, I bought my first pair of pink shoes and did my first ClaustroClothic with a pink dark look. Looking back, I’ve matured a lot from then to now. I mean, for one I wear a lot more leather. Like a lot more. So, bringing back the spirit of putting together pink and punk, here’s ClaustroClothic #36… Pretty in Pink, the alternative fashion version.
ClaustroClothic #36: Pretty in Pink // Alternative Fashion
What inspired this outfit?
Honestly, I’ve always wanted to consider myself a versatile dresser. I didn’t want to be the friend who always wore all black to everything but I knew that’s who I was. Black is just good, easy and comfortable. You never go wrong. Eventually, I started trying to put a little pink into it. When I saw those pink boots on for the first time, my heart turned quick. Like, super quick. The corset leggings were a steal too both created by the company Current Mood. Was I cold? God yes. Was it worth it? Hell yes.
How’d You feel When You Put It On?
I expected to feel girly… I hate that. I don’t hate feeling girly but I do hate that I worry about feeling too feminine for my personality type. If there isn’t anything I’ve learned this year becoming deeply invested in feminism, it’s that I shouldn’t be ashamed of anyone considering me what I am. A woman. So what if I like pink shit? It’s a color. That’s kinda how I felt when I got fully dressed. Like: “So what? I like this.”
What part of the outfit was the best deal?
I love talking about what I saved. I got my leather jacket for… wait for it… $20, marked down from $80. It was another very awesome Black Friday gift to myself and I’m unbelievably glad I got it because it is warmer than you’d believe!
Have you rocked pink yet?
No, I’m serious! Pink is a lot of fun for me, as a matter of fact, I rocked in my Super Orange official lookbook submission. I bet you Kings and Queens can rock it better than me though. So, how about it? Have you rocked pink? What’s the hardest color to get in your wardrobe?
Also, don’t forget!
