I recently purchased my first ever flannelette shirt. This may not seem like a big deal, but it kinda baffles me that I’ve gone thirty years without one. They are a staple item in Aussie wardrobes, and a huge part of the grunge and punk rock looks I love so much. How have I never bought a flannelette shirt before now? I picked up this one last weekend and I had to rock it immediately. I’m in love. It’s warm, it’s soft and so super comfortable.
My initial instinct was to style this bad boy with jeans and boots. But I didn’t want to be too predictable. I wanted to push my boundaries a little and wear it with something slightly unexpected. Enter this black lace corset dress, which has been in my wardrobe longer than I’ve been writing this blog.
I still wore my trusty Doc Martens for a classic 90’s grunge look. My boyfriend told me I looked like I’d stepped out of The Craft. I was only too happy to take that compliment.
I am wearing:
- Red flannelette shirt from Jay Jays
- Black corset dress from 7 Angels
- Black cage tights from Pulp Kitchen
- Black Dr Martens boots
- Deathly Hallows earrings (gift from my brother)
- Christopher Walken pendant from Etsy
- Silver rings (assorted)
- Leopard print socks from Sportsgirl
I felt pretty darn awesome in this shirt, and I’m looking forward to wearing it again. Maybe with the jeans-and-boots combo that I’d envisaged or perhaps with something completely different.
Is there an item that you’ve recently added to your wardrobe that you can’t believe it’s taken you this long to wear?
