Somebody once told me that when it comes to vintage clothing, if you wore a certain style the first time it was in fashion then you’re too old to rock that style when it resurfaces. I think that’s bollocks. I say that if a certain style of clothing makes you happy, then you should wear it.
One of my favourite styles of clothing is grunge. It’s a style that I adored in the mid-nineties when it was first fashionable and I still love it now. It seems to be experiencing a bit of a resurgence. Technically I shouldn’t be wearing grunge the second time around, because I dabbled in that style during it’s first flush of popularity. But I do it anyway. Because grunge isn’t about following rules.
I’m pretty sure that I’ve posted a similar outfit on the blog before, which isn’t surprising because I wear this ensemble pretty often. I love the tee-shirt-over-a-slip-dress look because it’s just so easy to wear and very comfortable.
– Red and black slip dress (gift from my friend Sam)
– Alice in Zombieland tee shirt from Threadless
– Black studded boots from Big W
– Black bangles (thrifted)
– Snake ring from Diva
– Chain ring from ASOS
– Signet ring (gift from my father)
This tee shirt is one of my favourites. I always get so many compliments when I wear it, and I love how many Alice in Wonderland references are hidden in the print.
Do you wear certain styles time and time again? Do you think that you should leave a certain style alone if you wore it the first time around?
Foxy lady! You look beautiful, and that skirt is an absolute *stunner*! Nuts to rules, I say… they’re meant to be broken 😉 If anything makes you happy and isn’t hurting someone else, live it, do it!
I totally agree with you. If it makes you happy, go for it.
I love that shirt, and I really love your glasses! I don’t tend to follow fashion rules, and I think you totally rock the grunge look.
Thank you so much. This is one of my favourite shirts. So much so that it’s almost worn out 😦
I hate fashion “rules” of any kind (except tights as pants….I really, really hate tights as pants) and think you rock this outfit. I think clothes should make you feel fabulous and that is the only rule anyone should follow.
I totally agree with you. If you enjoy wearing something, wear it (unless you enjoy wearing tights as pants. Don’t do that).
